Pacific Coast Mama Heads South - part 2

My Flip camera footage turned out to be too bumpy so instead I'm loading clips. The quality isn't fantastic but hopefully the images will translate.

All in all I had about four hours in Savannah. Not enough time to capture all the great sights. Hopefully, I'll be back soon.

If you need a bit more southern exposure check out Entre Nous. Written by a west-coast-gal-gone-southern with a focus on Savannah design news and more.

I may have to use that wrought iron gate for a ballet bodice design inspiration! Thanks for all the lovely photos.

It was such fun meeting you in Madame C's shop. Glad you were so taken with the downtown design district. Four hours just is not enough time to see everything you should. You really must plan another trip to come back. Oh and rumor has it there's going to be a write up about shopping in Savannah by India Hicks in the next issue of Vogue. Also, thanks for the blog mention.

Cheers!

Hi Vanessa,

It was really great meeting you and Michelle last week. It made my day trip that much better. Michelle is so talented and I know California brides would embrace her style. She's worthy of a complete post - some day!

Love your blog too and the fact that you always have the inside scoop. Looking forward to the India Hicks article.

Best!
