Did you have an imaginary friend as a chid?
I did. Her name was Molly and she had curly blonde hair (hmmm, sounds like someone I know.)

Amy, a Sea Island, Georgia native & UGA grad (glory, glory), designs the most heart-stopping pieces for Tibi. Obsessed with just about anything the woman does.

Of course REM, a Bloody Mary, the Varsity, Heery’s and that subtle red & black outfit. I die. Go Dawgs.
