BRIDE Launch party recap

Jacksonville Magazine hosted a launch party last night for the August issue of BRIDE at JAshley and Vue in Historic Avondale. We had a wonderful time and the only thing better than the cupcakes from Vanilla Cupcakery was to see lots of new faces and some familiar old ones. (Ahem, Agnes and Damon!) Agnes Lopez, we had a blast catching up with you and can't wait to see your new work!
It's pretty sweet to have a cocktail party in a boutique. If you haven't done so, I highly recommend it.
We started off at JAshley (run by the lovely Ashley Holt and Dianne Garcia) and after mingling with our favorite Jacksonville Magazine gal, Rachel Hughley, headed over to optical boutique, Vue. This is not your typical optometrist setting! After 10 years in a large practice, Dana Nolan decided to venture out on her own. This hip, mom of three has been in Avondale now for about eight months and her shop is SPECTACULAR! It has a couture feel and is definitely the hottest optical boutique in town! Look for more to come...
