Taco 'Bout A Party

Well, it is #BossLady Laci's favorite holiday (Cinco de Mayo) so of course we had a party! A Photo Booth, candy, cake, giveaways, basically everything but the Margs (and trust me, we tried to have those too!)
Thanks to everyone who has stopped by, hope you had as much fun as we have been having all day!

You Don't Know Jax!

Well, maybe you do know Jax, and if you do, then you can agree with me on how AWESOME this brand is. Yeah, you can say we're just a little obsessed with Jax Kelly Jewelry over here at R E V V. 
Made in Larissa's home land of LA, these one of a kind, handmade, unique pieces of jewelry will have heads turning. Simple but a statement, our kind of style **insert sunglasses smiley emoji here**! 
Next time you're in the store, look at these gems... (no pun intended)... dare ya! I promise you won't be able to say no. 
PS, happy weekend babes!

#WhatLiftsYou

Well friends good news, now you don't have to go to LA to get your wings!
Yesterday Larissa and I took the streets of Nashville in search of a spot to shoot some new pics for the store, and we hit the jackpot with this one. 
Famous artist, known for her intricate wing paintings, Kelsey Montague, made a Nashville appearance this week where she worked her magic. 60 paint pens later, the two sets of beautifully crafted wings were formed.
<< Also our new favorite spot to shoot >>
Located in the heart of The Gulch, these wings can be seen from a far while driving down 11th Ave S, with locals and tourists alike lining the black wall for a pic...us included! 
It's sunny, get outside, head to the Gulch, and check this out, seriously it's incredible!
If nothing else it will make for a good Insta pic, am I right?!

Brunch So Hard

Eat. Sleep. Midtown. Repeat // Yeah, sounds about right for a typical Nashville weekend, am I right? After a night at Red Door and Rebar, Sunday calls for one thing... BRUNCH! Here are some of REVV's favorite spots to hit when you really just want something to hit the spot! 
-
SAINT ANEJO
You won't be heading to this place just on Wednesdays for 2 for 1 margs anymore, because yes, there are 2 for 1 drinks for brunch too! 
JACKSONS
We might be biased because we can see them from our front door, but we promise you won't be disappointed. Then after you can come visit us at REVV ;) 
TAVERN
If you've never been here before, DO IT! Tavern honestly never disappoints, any time of the day. And just incase you didn't get enough of midtown the night before, you can head back down that way for this place.  
GERMANTOWN CAFE
This place is just, hands down, quality food! From drinks, top notch food choices, and deserts, you won't be able to pick what you're going to feast on! 
THE SOUTHERN
Summer is right around the corner, which means beautiful weather and great people watching here in Nashville, so soak it all in at The Southern with their great outdoor patio and mimosas. 
-
These are just a few of our favorites, but check them out! Whether you are a local, transplant, or tourist, I think it's safe to say that we all can agree...
Nashville brunch will be something you long for every Sunday.

Get By With A Little Help From Our Friends

Alright, appreciation post comin' atcha!
If you've walked down 21st through our lovely little neighborhood of The Village, you know it's lined with fab shops and good eats. 
Revelator Coffee Co is saving me every morning with my iced coffee with a splash of almond milk, and Double Dogs is always there to pick up Laci with her mid-day diet Coke, or when ya girl Larissa over here at REVV is just starving. 
Then we can't forget about our favorite visitor from Jeni's Ice cream, John Michael, who pops his head in just to chat on his way into his shift. 
Long story short, we love our little community here in Hillsboro, and know y'all love it just as much too! Make sure next time you're in REVV to check out all of the other great places over here!

Play Hard. Travel Often. Yes Please!

Not sure about y'all, but since living in Nashville every other conversation starts with "So, where are you from?". I don't know if its because I scream west coast girl or if it's because, chances are, the person I'm talking to ISN'T from Nashville originally either. I also guarantee you've seen people reppin' their city with one of these Aviate brand hats. We are loving everything from their catchy motto "Play Hard. Travel Often" (YES PLEASE!!!) to their tags that have fun facts about the city .... side note... according to the Nashville 'fun facts', the world famous "Goo Goo Clusters" actually stand for Grand Ole Opry... I learn something new every day thanks to these fab hats tags! 
With tons of different airport codes and colors available, these hats make for a fun souvenir from your fav city, or just a Sunday morning go-to when you wanna rock that day 2 hair. Whatever it may be, these are the new thing to have! 
Since my corner of the country is 'coming soon' to Aviate (which I will be purchasing a SEA one the second they're released) you can catch me running though Nash in my Black BNA trucker hat.  
Come on in to REVV, say whats up, and tell us where you're from when you pick up your Aviate hat! 
Xoxo,
Ally // GM of REVV

New Kid On The Block

I just wanted to take a quick second to introduce myself to y'all! My name is Ally Barrett, and I am REVV's new General Manager!

A little bit about me -- I'm from a small town about an hour outside of Seattle, Washington, but I have been in Nashville for almost a year (Wow, time flies). I moved here after I graduated from Washington State University, Go Cougs!, to pursue a career and grow my personal brand as a fashion stylist. This city has changed my life, seriously, I can't imagine living anywhere else, this place is simply too much fun and filled with great people!

You can find me on Mondays in Midtown at Winners, checking out Nashville's talent at Whiskey Jam, Wednesdays at Saint Anejo with the crew, and the weekends on Demonbreun Street (if I ever go MIA, check South...), just to name a few of my favorite spots. 

I could not be more excited to be joining such a bad ass team of the girls here at REVV, the team over at The Rage, and the #bosslady herself, Laci! I can't wait to see what is to come and for my adventures with REVV!

Until the next time,

XOXO

Ally

A Short Story

Ok guys, let's have a moment of silence for these suede Thelma Shorts. (pause here) Cool, thanks. Now let's talk about how amazing this look is! To me there is nothing better than a piece I can mix and match. Let's face it, I am a struggling artist in Nashville not a Kardashian, so coming up with ideas on how to wear something multiple ways is my go to! 
Take the look above, for example. Our lovely Revv gal Aimee is rocking a look fit for a day browsing the village, or brunching before a Sunday afternoon at Dawg house (Don't act like ya'll don't know the drill)!! 
 
Then.. these shoes happened. With a few minor adjustments, such as these UNREAL Dolce Vita Sandals, her look is ready for a night out in Music City! The lace detail on the front of her shorts gives you the option to dress it up a bit. Keeping everything else simple, such as pairing a white tank like Aimee did keeps your options open for add on's. My go to is a statement necklace, or that crazy hair style you've been wanting to try at Dry House! Your choice... 
Short story is with a little creativity, one peice can go a long way!
(See what I did there? hehe)

You've Been Dolce'd

Dolce. Dolce. Dolce... *Sigh* You've done it again. Tell me you don't want to start planning your Summer festival outfits around this pair of shoes?! If you did, I'd say "LIES!" >> Guaranteed these gals won't last long. We are in L O V E !
