This is one of our first LifeStyle posts. We wanted to sprinkle our blog with a little of the things we run across that we think you might be interested in. It could be anything from craft beer, fashion, music or cool little places off the beaten path that we might discover.
We were recently in Nashville, TN on a location scouting trip in preparation of a music video we are producing for Nashville recording artist Amy Stroup. We will fill you in more on Amy but in the meantime, get acquainted with her music on iTunes
We drove to Imogene and Willie’s, which is housed in an old gas station or as they used to call them back in the day, a “filling station”. We walked into the location and immediately, it felt warm and inviting. There was a hint of leather and fabric that permeated the air. There was a worn yet inviting leather couch and a yellow lab laying on the floor. What’s cool about this place is that all the clothing is custom hand made. I found a pair of leather boots that are on my radar. Walking into this store reminds me of one of the things that made America great….Blue-jeans! Around the ceiling are hundreds of patterns and sizes. One side of the store is dedicated to the seamstresses who make the clothing. Out back is a small courtyard where during the warm months they host musicians, which can only enhance the ambience of this place.
If you are in the Nashville, TN area, Imogene and Willie’s should be on your list of places to visit.
