It’s November and a week – already! Don’t fret, though. The world is not spinning out of control. Embrace the beauty of this month and the joy of anticipation as the year winds down, even if at an ever-accelerating pace. Our November FINDS are a compilation of items we find out about and just have to share!
Necklace from Taigan
We often find ourselves looking through Taigan’s selection of items. This site is filled with beautiful specialty stores from around the country. We all know that feeling of bumping into amazing boutiques and shops, or even a bakery, while on vacation. Many of those stand out stores are represented on Taigan. A recent find on Taigan was this Susan Elizabeth Globes necklace for just $90. Based in Chicago, Susan Elizabeth makes each piece by hand!
Guy Lovin’ Jewelry
Embrace East Nashville with a stop at Art and Invention Gallery and fall in love with Guy Lovin Jewelry. Guy Lovin utilizes Gortex thread to create the strung turquoise, pearl and lapis jewelry in his collection. If it’s durable, can it still be chic? We think so. With a name like Guy Lovin, what’s not to like?
Calypso St. Barth Bag
This Calypso St. Barth bag will have you embracing your inner bohemian self, since it works as well with a pair of wide legged jeans and a felt hat as it does with a cashmere sweater and skinny jeans tucked into boots. Use this bag with any piece in your wardrobe that falls on the casual, fun or funky side and your outfit is complete.
With the holidays approaching, perhaps a sparkly clutch is what you really need. This clutch, available at H. Audry, can be custom ordered with your monogram and is a unique item that no one will mistake as their own! At just $150, this clutch is a great addition to any wardrobe! Available in Nashville at H. Audrey.
30 gifts under $30 at Digs
Digs may have some of the most exquisite antiques and lighting in town, but they also have affordable gifts. As the holiday season starts to ramp up, it’s good to know that they have purposefully filled their store with 30 gifts under $30 and many more for under $50. Digs is located on Bandywood next to The Crowe’s Nest.
Talenti Sea Salt Caramel Gelato
We’ve thought of so many ways to include this gem of a gelato, as we are all obsessed. We even considered an entire blog post, just for this one flavor. But, we’re now at the point of “just get it out there!” If you want to make it even more divine, sprinkle with just a tiny bit of chunky sea salt…. oh, this is so worth the calories. And, at just over $5, this is an indulgence that’s easy on the pocketbook. Available at Whole Foods, Kroger and Publix, among others.
Gloves that work with smart phones
It’s official. Smart phones have taken over. In fact, the thought of being without causes mild panic attacks for
some all of us at StyleBlueprint. To enable constant use with the impending cold weather, you need special gloves. These from Spruce, in Brentwood, will keep you toasty and in full communication, $32.
Melamine, the good stuff
This melamine will have you learning to whistle out of joy. It looks like the real deal.. really! Stop by Ibiza Fine Gifts and find out why these light and practically impossible to break dishes need a home in your cabinet.
Outdoor Fire pit
Handmade in Tennessee, these outdoor fire pits are unique works of art created by Rick Wittrig and can be found at Fire Pit Art. Expect a full StyleBlueprint article on these fire pits in the not-so-distant future. But, with the weather changing, we thought it best to introduce you to fire pit art today.
Kevin Murphy Hair Products
Within the same month, Liza became a fan of Kevin Murphy straight.defense (to help make her hair straight while protecting it against heat) and Amy became a fan of Kevin Murphy fresh.hair (dry shampoo that really works). If you are in need of a change up, this Australian brand is definitely gaining a loyal grassroots following. Available at Salon N Fuse, Trim Classic Barber, The Cosmetic Market and others.
Custom Shirt by J.Hilburn
J. Hilburn is the world’s fastest-growing luxury men’s brand, selling over 60,000 custom shirts in 2010 alone. With clothes made from the finest Italian fabric and hand-constructed using each customer’s measurements, the J. Hilburn experience is unlike any other retail experience. After speaking with the only rep for the line in middle Tennessee, Margie Quina, we understand why our Dallas friends can’t say enough positive things about this brand. Find out for yourself. Margie will meet at an office or home for measurements and fabric choices. We are always in favor of ease of shopping and making the men of Nashville look their best. This is another option in addition to the wonderful men’s stores we already boast about. Custom shirts range from $89-$149, depending on fabric choices. Once ordered, you can order additional shirts online with your account, each made specifically for you. Margie can be reached at [email protected].

She is most excited to introduce Hylunia skin care products to her clients. Hylunia Skin care products use natural organic ingredients, specifically formulated to minimize irritation and inflammation. Hylunia products are ideal for all ages and skin types, especially those with sensitive skin. Embroidered Children’s Boots by Suzani Styles
Suzani Styles recently opened in the Green Hills Mall. When you look at their colorful array of shoes, boots and accessories , it’s hard not to be wowed by the use of color, pattern and design. These adorable children’s boots caught our eye. Suznai Style’s offers one of a kind boots, shoes and accessories to women with a flare for style. Each boot or shoe is hand made in Turkey and in keeping with the tradition of the Suzani, no two are ever exactly the same. They may be close, but they will not be the same. They have sizes for the littlest in your crew, and most styles are less than $500.
Vanderbilt Children’s Cookie Tins and Coffee Bags
Artwork by former and current patients of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt is transformed each year into a wonderful holiday tradition of cards, gift tags and wrapping paper. Christie Cookie and Bongo Java have joined forces to spread the joy of this artwork through the sale of cookie tins and coffee bags. All sales of these products support the hospital.
