The Rendez-vous avec Q!........

Fab and Quincy

In my first meet up with a lovely Nashville Blogger (with hopefully many more to come!) I had the chance to spend hours with Quincy of Q’s Daydream. Mark and I, Quincy and her husband Johnny met at Jackson’s in downtown Nashville. Quincy and her hubby embraced us as if we were longtime friends reuniting after years of being apart. We grabbed a bite to eat and had a couple of drinks and talked vintage and bloggers like there was no tomorrow. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Quincy was very vintage bombshell femme in a red halter top dress with the prettiest print and a full skirt that flares enormously, a beautiful wedge and vintage cognac woven handbag. Too bad we didn’t take photos that day because she was a stunner! I think the conversations of getting to know one another got in the way of me snapping a shot of her from my camera phone.



This past Sunday was probably one of the longest days that I have ever anticipated on. This time we met at the Parthenon for a photo shoot and here are some of the moments captured by our photographer husbands! Afterwards we went to Starbucks for some refreshing beverages where she introduced me to the iced chai tea with soy drink, I was already a big fan of hot chai tea but this definitely tops my home made tea bags recipe.
I had the most wonderful time with Q which I used to refer to as Queen before I knew her real name. She’s super sweet, energetic, kind hearted and looks gorgeous every time I see her. And can I honestly say she’s a great friend to have and glad to have met her through Etsy and Blogging. (She, too, posted about our experience!) Take a look here.



Outfit on me:
Vintage 1930s floral print dress
Vintage bow belt
Wooden wedge from UO
Vintage Etienne Aigner Woven bag
