Bahgsu Jewels designer Maggie Orli I have a pair of shark tooth dangle earrings that my friend Gay calls my “sexy earrings.” Shortly after these Bahgsu earrings came into heavy rotation, Gay tried getting herself a pair at Ziabird but they were long gone. The thing about the mystical, handmade pieces by Bahgsu Jewels is that you’ve got to catch them while you can. The same can be said for designer Maggie Orli, formerly of Wilmington and now a citizen of the world at large. Bahgsu Jewels was created in 2007 in ode to the small Himalayan village in northeast India called Baghsu. Maggie shares, “I switched the ‘g’ and ‘h’ when I decided the create my brand. This space…

Style Girl Jess James | Fashion Fix   Garden Party day arrived 75 and sunny during Wilmington’s famous 67th annual Azalea Festival. We had the absolute pleasure of spending the day with Dan Burke, a witty British bloke and owner of The British Taxi — and I actually got to sit in the same seat as David Beckham had a few months earlier! Swooooon. We scoured Airlie Gardens and the official after parties at Dockside and Bridgetender for our favorite picks for “Best Dressed” for the FASHION FIX/Focus On The…

With the promise of azalea’s first bloom, Wilmington prepares for its 67th Annual Azalea Festival, which kicks off next week on April 9. In a flurry of pomp and circumstance and endless social engagements, the fashion focus is not necessarily on the queen and belles alone. The Azalea Festival also signifies one of Wilmington’s signature fashion events of the year – the Garden Party. Each year I’ve attended the official party or the after-parties, I have always opted for vintage so this beautiful belle (above) from the early 20′s is…

New friends thanks to Charleston Fashion Week! Stylists Jess James & Brooke Williams (Photo: Obed Danjoint) Last Thursday, three nights in at Charleston Fashion Week, I was determined to send out my FASHION FIX – even after a long night of sartorial adventures with my new friend stylist Brooke Williams. Our night began early with a behind the scenes meet-and-greet with last year’s Charleston Fashion Week emerging designer winner Afriyie’s all-star team and ended with a nightcap St. Germaine cocktail at Prohibition (the official after-party). Full disclosure: I must admit…

At the Spring Fashion Preview with Presenting Sponsor Dr. Rosalyn George With grand illusions of leaving for Charleston at 7am for the highly-anticipated Candy Shop Vintage luncheon, I spent the day in my pajamas instead, recovering from my Spring Fashion Preview Wednesday night at the Cameron Art Museum. If you know the dichotomy on how my husband Joel and I differ when it comes to fashion (hint: his outfit of the day is almost always “top-of-the-drawer” inspired resulting in “quirky,” not always clean ensembles) you may begin to understand why…
