My favorite looks from the new Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Just gorgeous!


Alliance - The Stylish Watch

One thing I rarely buy is a watch. And I love watches! I miss the days of looking at your wrist to tell the time instead of whipping out our cell phones. And a men's watch on a woman = perfection to me at least. Or, you know, it looks just as cool on a man as well.
Then I was introduced to the Victorinox Swiss Army watch. Pretty utilitarian and cool if you ask me. I especially love how this version comes equipped with the famous Victorinox red second hand as well as the Automatic inscription on the dial. It just gives it a little pop of color. And you have your choice of two bracelets and two faces. For the bracelets you can choose from tanned black leather (my favorite!) or satined steel. As for the face you can choose from eggshell or dark gray. Here are the links to the different versions of the watch: the leather wristband with gray face, leather wristband and eggshell face, steel band and gray face and the version with the steel band and eggshell face. These watches will last forever and make a fantastic gift or yourself or your loved ones.

I partnered with the brand to write this article but every word is mine


Black & White in Mt. Laurel

Zara Pleated Skirt (worn as a dress ala Olivia Palermo)-Similar, here and here, Zara Handbag, 

Ever since I started working with different Birmingham photographers I've got to see parts of Birmingham I usually wouldn't. For example these were taken in the town of Mt. Laurel which reminds me of back home in Rosemary Beach. Super cute town with a bunch of shops and restaurants, which, when I have more time, I'm definitely planning on going back to do some actual shopping.

These photos were taken by the super talented Eric Gray of Eric Gray Photography. He's very good at what he does and just the nicest guy! You should definitely also check out his Website and Instagram. Here's what he has said about his work: 

"As a photographer, my goal is to capture a moment, to find beauty in the details and bring a point of view to each image. I love when my work gives my subject a sense of pride, stirs a memory or even creates one. Whether it's family, fashion, corporate events or perhaps shooting that classic car you're so passionate about, I want to showcase the best in my subject."

As for what I'm wearing, I pulled a tip out of Olivia Palermo's Fashion Handbook and wore my pleated Zara skirt as a dress. In keeping with the black and white of the skirt I paired my Schutz Chevron Pumps and black Zara handbag with Spiked top handle. I also wore my Rose Golde Hand Chain which is just beautiful and I won in a blog giveaway thrown by a local blogger Heather of My Life Well Loved

Until next time...


Splendid Splendies

I recently came across a site called Splendies which is a monthly subscription box, another one I know, but this one is different. I know I spend all sorts of money on clothes and shoes and accessories but I always seem to neglect my underpinnings, especially cute ones you'd want your significant other to see.
So, basically, this is how it works. You head on over to Splendies.com and sign up for a monthly subscription and every month you'll get a surprise box of super cute underwear for only $12/month. But! Your first box is only $8 with the promo code SPLENDIES. Your first box will arrive within days of your order and after that expect your undies between the 11th and 19th of the month. When you sign up just add your size (here's their size chart) and if you're afraid of thongs add $2 to the monthly box. Free Shipping within the US, Canadian shipping is $7, and Internationally for $9. Also when you sign up you'll get a referral code to share with your friends and if 3 sign up you'll get a free box (so if you click any of my Splendies links make sure to enter Rachel Tindall in the referred by box)! And for you curvy or "Plus Size" (hate that term) gals there's Volumpties pronounced Volup-Tease! Sexy! You can also cancel anytime but I'm not sure why you would want to for $12. Also check out the #Splendies page for a chance at a free box. For more Splendies check out their Facebook and Twitter!


Victoria Beckham Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear

These five looks above are my favorite from the Victoria Beckham show. For a minute though I was confused as I thought this was supposed to be a Spring show but quite a lot of the looks looked like they would fit right at home in Fall. The Winter white suit above is amazing! A very modern take and paired with leopard shoes, to die for! The white sweater two pics above, seriously, it's like the perfect sweater! And I could seriously see myself wearing the striped mini dress with shades of white and beige. Overall Victoria Beckham is one designer that knows what's going on and what women want.


Saks BCBG Fashion Show Benefiting The Exceptional Foundation

 jacket: Lloyd Bonded Jacket (and here), dress: Geometric Lace Dress
bracelets: Adriana Orsini (I wore a bunch of different colors, another one you can find here and here
cuff: Similar here, heels: Balmain (my own)

I had an opportunity to walk a runway show at Saks Fifth Avenue Birmingham benefiting The Exceptional Foundation. These photos were taken by the cutest couple EJ Photography. Their names are Eric and Jamie, a married couple who together take gorgeous photos. Here's what they have to say:

"Together, we strive to capture fresh and timeless moments that will never leave your Facebook page or fireplace mantle. We were married in February 2014 and have been partners in crime for 7 years. We are lovers of cats, Mexican food and cheesy TV dramas. In our free time, we enjoy spending time catching up with friends, dinner-and-a-movie date nights, and relaxing with our kids (cats), Agent Prentiss and Ms. Pearl." 

If you would like to contact them you can find their email address here. They are just the cutest couple I've seen and for more info here's their Facebok Page, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Now onto my first outfit. This BCBG dress is absolute perfection. I love the lace and geometric print. It's beyond gorgeous! On top of that I wore the BCBG Lloyd Bonded Jacket which is perfect for Fall and has a very cool back detail. Also my makeup was done by Jennifer Barrett who's a 
Laura Mercier Beauty Specialist. She does an amazing job! To see the next look just click below to read more...
