I Dream of Weenie + Sue Madras

Wednesday, April 29, 2015


I decided to wander around Nashville in my new Sue Madras Dress (after realizing I was having the shittiest hair day every and gave up and teased it to the sky and threw a scarf in it).  I had a lot of fun with this dress because it was such a vibrant color blue and I love that it came with a little correlating sash.  Eventually, I ended up at I Dream of Weenie which is a little hot dog eatery in East Nashville that is inside an old VW Bus.  I always smile when I see the little hotdog shaped planters because how can you not love something so simultaneously kitschy and cute?!  I'm officially adding this stop to my "Things To Do in Nashville" tag. 

We've had the pleasure of working with House of Dots in the past (here and Amelia's post Monday, here).  We don't talk about the people behind the brand that often, but Hester and Marielle are the absolute sweetest.  Everything about House of Dots is visually appealing, their website is adorable, their designs are unique, vibrant and beautifully made, down to the last detail: every pocket is piped + lined and every flipped seam has a special touch.  Also, they have weekly, Monday in-shop craft nights.  They make me want to grab Katie and hop on a plane to the Netherlands.

  4. Yay! I'm so glad you highlighted I Dream of Weenie. It is one of my absolute favorite places around town and I love their sunday hotdog brunch. How can you lose with a hashbrown casserole covered hot dog? Also, your hair looks adorable up. It gives me hair envy since mine is super short. I miss that versatility!

  5. I think your hair looks GREAT here actually, and this dress is wonderful on you. It's a perfect fit with the cherry accents (by the way, did you make the brooch??). And the peach petticoat is such a sweet surprise!

    Even when you're having a shitty hair day, you still look amazing! I wish I could get my hair to do the beehive thang yours does! Favorite eatery is Tommy's Original Hamburgers. In N Out gets all the local raves, but I think it's overrated. I'm a Tommy's gal all the way. It's all about the chili sauce. If you're ever in L.A. head to the original shack. It's not in the safest of neighborhoods but they're totally worth it.
