Lets face it ladies, shopping for our men isn’t the easiest task in the world. Either you don’t know if something is going to fit, or they already have everything you can afford! Lucky for us The Shops Buckhead Atlanta offer various places to find the perfect gift! With Father’s Day just around the corner, I went ahead and picked out a few of my favorite men’s summer fashion pieces you can pick up before June 19th!

Still struggling to find something? I highly recommend giving Dad a gift card to Bonobos. Bonobos Guideshop is an “e-commerce store,” designed as Bonobos’ answer to the traditional retail experience. Bonobos Guideshop Buckhead Atlanta is a physical 1,150 square-foot space, serving as a highly personal extension of Bonobos’ comprehensive customer service for those who want to see and try on the clothing in-person before placing an order on the popular retail website.

Pretty neat, right? I think this is a great idea not only for gift giving, but also for men who struggle to find the right fitting clothes. My husband has a hard time finding pants that fit right because he is tall and skinny. By going into Bonobos, he will get a tailored look but not pay the expensive tailored price.  So if you’re ever in the Buckhead area- stop by Bonobos to check it out and find a perfect outfit for your main squeeze!

Ladies Lunch at Le Bilboquet

Uncategorized By May 23, 2016 No Comments

Bonjour! Today we are going to France for the day! Just kidding but that’s how you feel when you walk into Le Bilboquet located here at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta. From the minute you walk in you are taken back by the beauty of this French restaurant.

5

Open daily for lunch and dinner, the bistro and bar offers a vibrant atmosphere paired with simple, classic French cooking, bringing a slice of Parisian café culture to the neighborhood and a natural gathering spot to enjoy a chilled bottle of rosé alfresco alongside classic bistro fare or a draft beer and croque monsieur at the bar. I was fortunate enough to try out this exquisite restaurant last week with my best friend Haley. We sat in the main dining area where the big windows allow you to enjoy the beautiful weather. Our lovely waitress recommended we try her favorite cocktail, the Tu Es Belle. Haley and I both ordered one and quickly saw why it was her favorite.

2

After enjoying our drinks and the warm bread, we ordered two of their most popular appetizers- Jumbo Lump Crab with Avocado and Corn + the Tuna Tartar. Both dishes were incredibly fresh and packed with flavors!  My favorite was the crab because it sat on a bed of avocado.

Next we ordered our main entrees, the Classic Croque Madame Sandwich + Signature Cajun Chicken that came with Beurre Blanc and French Fries. The chicken was cooked to perfection- grilled out the outside, while staying moist and tender on the inside. The chicken was sitting on a Beurre Blanc, which was creamy and full of flavor. It was heavenly!

6

Lastly we went with the Apple Tartine and Profiteroles for dessert. Both were excellent but the ice cream that came with apple tartine was absolutely phenomenal! Even if you don’t have a lot of room left for dessert – I strongly recommend at least getting a scoop of their ice cream.

7

I can honestly tell you that Le Bilboquet is the best French restaurant I have tried in Atlanta. I have a slight obsession with French food so I’ve had my fair share of it. Le Bilboquet takes pride in providing you with an authentic experience of French cuisine. I was very happy with my experience and will continue to recommend it to all my friends.

Whether you are looking for a beautiful, delectable place to have lunch with the girls or you are looking for a romantic place to take your love- Le Bilboquet will never disappoint.

Summer Skin: L’Occitane

Uncategorized By May 18, 2016 No Comments

Bonjour my friends! Today I want to tell you about my favorite body product brand located here at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta- L’Occitane.

Loccitane 1

If you’re like me, you’ve been a fan of this brand for many years now. This flagship store is one out of three in the USA. Right when you walk in you are taken back by the beauty of this magnificent store. From shower gels, to soft smelling perfumes, L’Occitane will help get your skin ready for summer. One of their best skin products is their shea butter line, which is made in Africa. In the early 1980s, on a trip to Burkina Faso, Oliver Baussan (founder) discovered the wonderful properties of shea butter.

Loccitane 3

L’Occitane has built a strong relationship of co-development and fair trade with local communities for 30 years. By employing local women and paying far above their minimum wage, over 9,700 women have benefited from L’Occitanes involvement with the community.

Giving back to the world is just one of the many reasons L’Occitane is such a prestigious company. For 4 years in a row now L’Occitane’s Divine Cream has been voted number one by The Beauty Bible for best anti-aging face creams. I personally use this oil and face cream and I can tell you that it is number one for a reason. This face cream keeps you moisturized all day but doesn’t make you feel oily. Its great too because it’s a day and night cream in one. The cream is made from an immortelle flower, which is in the sunflower family. This beautiful flower never wilts away but instead stays perfect forever. It also contains essential fatty acids and nourishing vitamin E. Perfect for after being out in the hot sun all day!

L’Occitane doesn’t just make high quality lotions- they also have hair products, shower gels, shaving lotion, men products, baby products and exclusive perfumes.

Whether you are looking for a new face cream or just need a fun new perfume, L’Occitane is your summer skin care headquarters!

Peaches to Pearls + The Southern Gentleman

Uncategorized By May 16, 2016 No Comments

Hi friends! My name is Luisa from Peaches to Pearls blog. I will be taking over The Style Scene for the next four weeks. We will cover everything The Shops Buckhead Atlanta has to offer- great food and all things fashion. First up is one of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta, The Southern Gentleman.

Located upstairs at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta, The Southern Gentleman celebrates every aspect of what it means to be from the South with a fresh, modern take on traditional dishes made with locally sourced ingredients. The bar program explores the artistry and history of classic Southern cocktails—everything from barrel-aged cocktails to bottled libations to adult beverages on tap, along with New World wines and craft beers and the “perfect” mint julep.

We want this to feel like stepping into our home,” says co-owner Chris Hadermann. “If a friend were visiting Atlanta from New York, we want The Southern Gentleman to feel like the warm, welcoming place you’d want to take them to experience what it means to live the Southern lifestyle—a respect for the familiar traditions, that sophisticated yet unpretentious elegance, but also with a modern edge that makes it exciting and fresh. This is our take on proper Southern hospitality.”

From the minute you walk into the restaurant, you are taken back by the beautiful, elegant southern decor. Designed by New York’s Lacina Heitler, The Southern Gentleman features classic, Southern touches done in surprising, modern ways: seersucker window treatments, tufted camel leather booths, vintage plateware, white marble countertops, vaulted ceilings, herringbone floors, dramatic chandeliers, complete with an oversized portrait of Mark Twain painted by a commissioned local artist. If the weather permits, I strongly recommend sitting out on their porch to enjoy the view of Buckhead.

We started our afternoon with two delectable appetizers- deviled eggs, mussels and steak tartare. They were all the perfect way to start a southern lunch! I especially loved the steak tartare because it came with cottage fried potatoes, frisée, and black-eyed pea salad. It had crispy little pieces of fried black eye pea’s, which added extra texture to the tartare.

Deviled Eggs - TSG

Next we moved on to the main entrees- a delicious pan fried North Georgia trout that came seasoned with a gunpowder Cornmeal, Colbert Sauce, Carolina Long-Grain Dirty Rice, and Chow Chow Relish. It was very fresh and full of flavor. We also tried their most famous lunch staple, the ‘chicken fried’ chicken salad sandwich.

Sandwich - TSG

After taking one bite I could immediately see why it was a staple lunch item. The chicken is perfectly fried then tossed into a light mayo dressing and served over a soft roll. It was honestly one of the most amazing sandwiches I have ever tried!

Last but certainly not least was the chocolate mini cake. It is served warm with a dash of whip cream on top! Every bite you take gets better and better! I especially loved how moist and perfectly baked the cake was. Absolutely divine!

Cake - TSG

Whether you are looking for a new romantic place to try, or you have out of town guest who want the Atlanta experience- The Southern Gentleman won’t disappoint. When you visit, I high recommend starting with the steak tartare, followed by their famous chicken sandwich and finish it off with a chocolate mini cake.

Enjoy!

Xo, Luisa

Hey hey! It’s Men’sday Wednesday!

After all of the goodies we have been tempting the ladies with, we at least thought we should give the guys a shout out too! Especially because I style men just as much as women. I mean hey, men want to look good too!!

From Brunello Cucinelli: I can tell you that Cucinelli’s fabrics are hard to beat and the fact they can make a sport coat that you can literally play basketball in? #truestory
