Transformation Tuesday

Can you believe it? You made it through Monday, which happened to be the first official day of fall. Congratulations! This means it’s now socially acceptable to start wearing your fall boots, cashmere sweaters and pretty scarves. Which brings us to the point — it’s another Transformation Tuesday here at Dovecote! We hope you’re as excited as we are. Today, we’ve taken a simple blue top with black pants and created the perfect casual ensemble for Fall.

CP Shades has gorgeous cotton flannel Teton shirts in tons of great fall colors (here, shown in such a pretty purple). We’ve paired that with a slim navy pant from Equestrian Designs, a soft blush scarf from Suzi Roher and blue suede ballet flats from French Sole. We’re going casual today, meaning a simple suede bag from our favorite Nashville designer Ceri Hoover will do the trick. This is a timeless investment piece that matches nearly outfit or occasion, and best of all, it will last forever!

Perfect for a brisk day of shopping, dashing off to class or heading out for coffee with friends.

We met starting new jobs on December 31, 1988 in Winston-Salem at Wachovia Bank. We were being processed in HR and Dina asked Diane if she was nervous starting a new job. We were both new to Winston-Salem and did not know anyone in town. After multiple attempts, Dina was finally able to persuade Diane to come over... Full Post >

Being Creative with Fullsteam

Food, beer, wine, restaurants, service, music, painting, sculpting -- what do all of these have in common? Creativity and imagination! Some are individualistic expressions and some are joint, or better, collaborative expressions. The teamwork and creativity that goes into restaurants is something that when working well, should go unnoticed, it should feel natural. In our second year collaborating with Sean Lilly Wilson and Fullsteam Brewery I feel that natural mutual creative energy in... Full Post >
