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 the show. I styled each of the models in looks I put together featuring some of the most coveted trends of the season wearing clothing and accessories from Encore Consignment…

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.

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?!”…

San Francisco LOVE. So last Friday I set off for the trip of my dreams to San Francisco. It’s still kind of a secret so I can’t divulge everything quite yet, dear readers but I’m hoping to share with you some of my experiences over the next few weeks. Let’s just say I have a team of magical travel fairies that reside at the corporate headquarters of Airbnb in San Francisco (which all started with my amazing friend Stella, who is an Airbnb-er based in Charleston). It was five days…
