Stylemaker Seven: Waiting on Martha

Mandy Kellogg Rye, the maven behind lifestyle trifecta (blog, e-shop, and design firm) Waiting on Martha modeled and styled our Acklen Shirtdress for us. See the pics here.

While she was at it, she answered our Stylemaker Seven questions for us. (Mandy may have moved to the South only five years ago when she relocated from Chicago to Atlanta, but her answers sure read like those of a native.)
