Treasure hunting at my new obsession – Zartiques – in Castle Hayne A ninety-nine degree day, ladies in heat for a one-night-only swimsuit sample sale and my showroom’s A/C is down. What’s a girl to do? The first person I thought of who just might have an industrial fan or portable air conditioner lying around is Mr. Allen Walker, the bohemian Gatsby behind the now not-so-hidden gem along the river, the Walker World Organic Artist Retreat. New addition to Walker World   Alas, Allen did not disappoint. I dropped off our Jay Edge figure painting – the latest lady in Allen’s life – and Allen loaded my car with a portable A/C while packing his kids up for a trip…

Swimsuit season has arrived! Even though I haven’t spent much time with the sand between my toes this summer (YET), my thoughts are moving to the sea with each waning June day signaling that summer indeed has arrived. I recently styled the cover and swimsuit fashion spread in Focus on the Coast (see below) with Photographer Eric von Bargen writing the following intro – “Surrounded – in the silence of sand, feel the rythmic whisper of the sea. The movement of the falling wave, the breeze at your back, and…

Exploring the La Grange farm outside Kinston, NC on my birthday Oh my, how times have changed since my backyard birthday parties growing up. I can vividly recall my pigtailed friends and I shaking each wrapped present and praying for a Barbie, a My Little Pony, maybe even a puzzle – ANYTHING but more clothes! Hard to believe, right? Well, you may also have a hard time imagining Style Girl choosing to spend her birthday on a farm. Growing up in South Jersey only a short drive from the Cowtown…

Posing with the lovely models from Landfall’s Great Oaks Women’s Club I styled at my trend presentation / fashion show last week I was honored when one of my styling clients Gayle Van Velsor (soon-to-be Great Oaks President) invited me to present to the women of Landfall’s Great Oaks Club. I hadn’t curated a trend presentation and fashion show for the ladies of Landfall since 2011 when Sharon Novak was president. This time around, Sharon had the chance to experience the show as one of my models instead of running…

Interior Designer Mary Jo Shipman of Shipman Design Group, 1st place winner at Habitat for Humanity’s Upscale Resale event A few weekends ago, Joel and I attended the Preview Party for Habitat for Humanity’s 2nd annual Upscale Resale weekend long event. My friend Pat Kusek of Kusek Financial Group visited me at the first annual Upscale Resale when my vintage collection was a part of Birds of a Feather’s booth last year and immediately recognized the event’s connection to her own business. As this year’s presenting sponsor, Pat says, “Habitat…

Turquoise Shield Ring by Joie Jager of Soixante Neuf Trunk Show at Ziabird – TODAY April 24 through Sunday April 26 My guess would be it was Jewelry Designer Joie Jager’s shield rings that first caught Ziabird owner Lynn Manock’s eye at market. There’s something about a statement ring that can be captivating. Try paying attention to someone who talks with their hands who happens to be wearing one of Joie’s shield rings from her Soixante Neuf line. Within minutes, you’ll be dying to ask, “Where did you get that?!”…
