Just as I do in every city I visit, I explored Atlanta on a recent trip and discovered some great venues. Last year, West Egg cafe became my favorite spot for breakfast or lunch. On the way to West Egg yesterday, I noticed a small chic shopping area call the White Provisions with high-end retailers like Knoll, Billy Reid, and many more. Just beyond this center, over the bridge is Bacchanalea which is one of Atlanta’s best restaurants. And next door to the restaurant is SID MASHBURN, an elegantly curated boutique. I spent quite a bit of time here and I must say the buyers know exactly what they are doing–impeccable taste that is in perfect tune with current and classic style. The merchandise is exquisite and so varied giving clients a broad range to choose from. One can never go wrong. I want everything in this shop for my closet.
SID has mens, womens and a small selection for kids at ANN MASHBURN. But the element that makes them stand out extends beyond their merchandise and their great style. They provide their clients with an experience and some of the best customer service I have seen in a long time. The management, style consultant, tailors and even the cleaning crew are all passionate about what they are doing and it shows. These staff members believe in their product and are confident about not only selling it but wearing it as well. This commitment and passion led me to photograph Graham , Brad , and Donnie, who naturally express their style, flair and a sense humor–everything just works: quality, style, originality…the perfect fit.
