I spend a lot of time and energy searching for the best shopping and the most fantastic food finds in every city I visit. Sure, it’s great to explore a new city for a few days to see what the locals have to offer. But I forget that the greatest city of all, my hometown, offers some of the best shopping and dining experiences in the world. I’m talking about the city of Atlanta, Georgia.
Among many of Atlanta’s growing neighborhoods, there is Atlantic Station located in Midtown. This place is known as the epicenter for awesome shopping, dining and entertainment all in one. If people watching is your thing, then Atlantic Station is where you need to be.
Local residents emerge after work hours to shop at the latest fashion boutiques, trendy home décor havens and an exclusive department store for the whole family. After all is said and done, you can refuel and recharge at Atlantic Station’s many unique restaurants and bars options.
To celebrate the arrival of fall, Craft Box Girls was invited to Atlantic Station for a Fall Tour. Lynn Lilly, Rosanna Penaflorida, Allison Cawley and I were the lucky gals to get exclusive media access into the four popular shops of Atlantic Station. Those shops were Festivity, Francesca’s, West Elm and Dillard’s. Our mission was to scoop out our fall favorites. Visit Craft Box Girls to see what everyone’s fall fave picks were. Below is the recap of my #fallfaves and more.
This cute fashion boutique is not only affordable, it is stocked with the latest fall fashion. Within 3 minutes, I found my fall favorite. This faux fur vest has it all – warmth, style and fur! This adorable vest is only $68.
Francesca’s has always been a favorite boutique of mine. I knew I’ll find a couple of favorites and will have a problem narrowing my picks down to one fall fave. I was right. Here are my favorite picks – the blue Sailor Hooded Anorak Jacket is $54. This jacket also comes in a tan vest for $48.
How cool is this place? I was in the entertaining mood when I stepped into West Elm. I was drawn to the dining sets that highlights this season’s best colors – blue and gold. Seeing this table setting makes me want to have a fall inspired dinner party. My fall faves from West Elms is the Organic Shaped Crackled Dinnerware ranges from $8- $12. The Faceted Gold Flatware set is $79 -$299.
I think Dillard’s is a great place to shop for the whole family. I love the shoe department at Dillard’s because I always find the best fitting boots for fall. They even carry wide calf sizes! Hallelujah! This soft grey Jessica Simpson Randee boots for $168 are so darling. It’s my absolute fall favorite!
If you live in the Atlanta area and have not visited Atlantic Station lately, you need to see it again. It’s a whole new place. If you are ever visiting A-town, swing by Atlantic Station and see what you’ve been missing this whole time. It’s a great place to spend the afternoon shopping and dining with friends.
