If you have not been to the Westside Provisions District this week for their annual District Design Week, you still have a chance.  Kicking off last Friday, the event-filled week continues through Thursday, September 13. We recommend you stop by tomorrow for a hardy dose of fashion, style and food.   From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., a makeup artist from Woo Skincare and Cosmetics (our favorite Buckhead shop for all of your beauty and skincare needs) will be in Calypso St. Barth doing touch-ups to match your wardrobe selections.   But that is just the beginning. Every Wednesday an Atlanta area chef pops up in the Westside Provisions District to offer a delicious food selection. This week’s featured chef will be Joe Schafer from King + Duke and he will be serving smoked turkey sandwiches on semolina with bacon, arugula, cream cheese and cucumber served with dill-pepper chips. Don’t forget to check out the Lexus VIP lounge as well. The luxury lounge which offers guests  complimentary drinks and a blast of cool area, showcases furniture and home decor from select home stores at WSPD.

And that is just on Wednesday. Here’s what’s on the agenda for Thursday, September 12

  • Kayce Hughes hosts Calliespondence Pop Up Shop featuring personalized greeting cards – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m.
