SG *FASHION FIX* – Fashionably Late + 3 Ways to Wear the T-shirt Everyone Wants!
        Must-Have Tee: “Sorry I’m Late” t-shirt worn by Tracy Tang Available this coming week at Blue Hand Home   There seemed to be a theme at Cindy Vach’s birthday gathering earlier this week. I predictably arrived late. Perhaps, only in honor of the birthday girl, who also is famous for being fashionably late? Nice try. Then, Tracy Tang (the owner of Blue Hand Home) arrived even later. With one glance at her t-shirt (worn under her chic black blazer), all was forgiven, drinks were ordered and everyone had a new t-shirt to add to their Pinterest or in my case, Instagram feed. Cheers to...

SG *FASHION FIX* – 2012 Magic Moments: Looking Back Before Moving Ahead
      It’s been an incredibly difficult past few weeks losing our precious dog Buster and now my beloved Nana.  I have not yet embraced moving forward into 2013 so I thought I might get inspired by first taking a look back at some of 2012’s more magical moments. Here’s hoping for brighter days. Thank you for your prayers and comforting words. xo, Jess   One of my favorite portraits of Nana from the 1940’s         2nd Annual Great Gatsby Gala     Held at The City Club  and presented this year by DreamCarSource.com this night of Jazz Age...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Social Chic: Somewhere over the Rainbow in Charleston
          John and Deirdre Zahl as the Tin Man and Glinda The Good Witch Photo: Jess James  After years of hearing about Charleston’s annual glamorous Red Party benefiting the American College of The Building Arts, I had the pleasure of actually attending last Thursday October 25th at The Old Charleston Jail.   With Wilmington’s Gay Adair on my air in head-to-toe emerald green, we followed the yellow brick road through the dungeon-like hallway to the magical canopy under the stars where we found revelers in ravishing red or Wizard of Oz-themed attire, this year’s sub-theme.   Although there really is no place like...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Back to School Cool: Style Profile with an 8-year-old
            Sadie Dunne celebrating her 8th birthday at Satellite Wednesday night     I recently received a message from a reporter at The Star-News inquiring about what kids want to wear back to school. Admittedly a bit clueless on the subject of kids in general, I figured I’d do a bit of research while attending my BFF Shannon’s daughter Sadie’s birthday party Wednesday night at Satellite. I had a vintage earring set with change-out multi-colored backs I’ve been meaning to give her but wanted a little something extra, too. Shannon informed me Sadie had a “box” at Learning Express.   Arriving at the...

SG *FASHION FIX* – How to Tote a Chanel for less than $100
            Thursday Friday totes, now available at Lilies & Lace at Lumina Station Photo: Joyus   I first heard about Thursday Friday bags from my friend Deirdre (of Candy Shop Vintage) in Charleston. They had just arrived at a King Street boutique and she was scrambling to get her hands on one since they were rumored to be selling out everywhere. If you’ve always wanted to carry a Balenciaga or Chanel bag, now you can (well, kinda!) Thursday Friday’s signature “Together Bags” are carryall canvas totes screenprinted with a highly coveted Chanel, Balenciaga or Birkin bag. Noted in the New York Times as “this...

*FASHION FIX* – What Joan Wore on MAD MEN + Why Charleston Should Care
            Candy Shop Vintage’s “Trillium Set” worn by Joan Holloway in the latest episode of MAD MEN   One time at Fashion Week….   Something wonderful happened. My friend Deirde Zahl and I squealed as we left the Charleston Fashion Week kick-off party at Billy Reid. We had just met one of our style mentors, Award-winning Costume Designer for MAD MEN, the lovely Janie Bryant, who was in town as one of CFW’s celebrity runway judges for the emerging designer competition. And get this – she said she was interested in seeing some pieces from Candy Shop Vintage, Deirdre’s Charleston-based vintage jewelry collection (read the...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Style Girl’s Birthday Skirt + Launch of Frocktales
        My birthday skirt from All Saints Spitalfields     Do you ever find something that just speaks to you? Whether it’s a hand-crafted piece of jewelry, a painting or a first edition from one of your favorite authors, it’s bound to happen to you. The Newaz Skirt in Pistachio from All Saints Spitalfields started calling my name as soon as I spotted it on their website. To me, this skirt is a work of art. I love the sparkling sequins and how it encompasses my favorite design elements – tribal, Egyptian and deco –  all at once.   Naturally, there was a hunt...

          Last Thursday, there were far more fashionistas in Blue Hand Home than home furnishings.  In celebration of the annual FASHION FIX Spring Fashion Preview presented by Wilmington Dermatology Center, Tracy and Arnie transferred couches, dining tables, textured rugs and a menagerie of interior accents to a home they are staging to make room for a runway and a variety of pop-up shops from Wilmington’s favorite boutiques and designers.   For the next several weeks, I will share with you the Top 10 Trends for Spring we previewed that evening, starting with NEON worn to perfection by model Ozlem Nichols.

SG *FASHION FIX* – Fashion Sense vs. Fashion 2 Cents – Dad Weighs In…
    Style Girl Jess James | Fashion Fix       Even if you’ve never met my dad, chances are if we’re friends on Facebook, you may have noticed a reliable “Dave James like this” under a variety of my posts. This isn’t surprising from a dad who once took a half of day off from work to surprise me at a live radio remote with Q102 at the Cherry Hill Mall – just in time to see me escort the Camden Aquarium’s shark mascot as part of my internship duties. A self-professed “Daddy’s girl,” my dad and I agree on a few key points – that...
