Breakfast at Tiffany's

I've blogged about Tiffany's in the past but nothing beats a trip to this fabulous store. I love the sparkling jewels but not just because it's "Tiffany's" but also because the quality is fantastic! I mean even the sterling silver is worth top dollar.

Recently during Style Week Charlotte, I attended the invite only "Breakfast at Tiffany's" event at the Tiffany's store in South Park Mall . I had a great time doing a little impromptu photo shoot... and was able to enjoy a delicious breakfast, "play" with the jewelry and enjoy the company of some of my favorite fashionable folks in the Queen City. Not to mention, there's nothing better than to attend any event with your own photographer who just happens to be a perfectionist...LOL. Thanks so much for capturing a style week in the life of StyleMayvin Erin! :)

Can you guess which of these beautiful pieces will be my Mother's Day gift? :)

Just Write

I've always loved writing and have been fashion obsessed for as long as I can remember so it was pretty natural for me to start the StyleMayvin website but when I found (or shall I say...when I was gifted) a fashionable notebook, I thought "Oh my, yet another item to covet". My BFF knows me so well that she was positive I would fall head over stilettos for Jordi Labanda notebooks. Found at Target and a few other stationary stores, these notebooks make me smile every time I look at them. I simply cannot make myself stop buying them, even when I have no use for it at the time. They're like shoes! Eventually, they all get worn so I always need a backup. And...because the notebook face is designed to resemble a magazine cover, it really makes me feel as though every page I write is extremely important published information! I know, it sounds a bit extra but for me it's inspiration! From meetings to jotting down notes at home, my stationary simply must be just as fashionable as I.

Spring Trend - Straw Bag

If you've been paying close attention, you've seen my posts on Spring Style for this year so now... let's get specific. Straw Bags are all the rage and here are three of my favorites. Happy Spring Shopping! This fun and flirty Kate Spade is $345 and it is a classic look that complements any look. Kate does classic chic well! Salvatore Ferragamo is giving me a heart attack with this red, fire hot clutch. ($990) I can totally see myself sporting it with a beautiful flowing white maxi dress.

My readers know that I am in love with Michael Kors so this MICHAEL bag ($298) rounds out my top three. This one is a day-to-day tote and I love the fact that he added a pop of orange. Once again, orange is the new black for spring and this look simply made my day.

All of these fabulous bags and more can be purchased at Bloomingdales.

Charleston Fashion Week 2011

Charleston Fashion Week seems to get bigger and better every year! The StyleMayvin team was given access to attend this year and it was absolutely fabulous! Who knew the south could rock it like this?

Larika Page was one of the featured designer on Saturday evening and by looking at my top three looks for her collection, you can certainly see why!

Another one of my favorites...David Yoo. I absolutely LOVED the use of black gloves as accessories. Cudos!
