Charleston Designer You Need to Know + WIN her earrings!
Around the time of Charleston Fashion Week, several bold textured gold rings from Christina Jervey Jewelry first caught my eye in Ayoka Lucas’s white themed spring fashion spreadin Charleston Magazine.  Next, my friend Deirdre tagged me in a photo of Christina Jervey pyramid stud earrings on Instagram knowing how I have a thing for triangles. Since then, I’ve noticed Christina’s gold structural statement pieces on the fingers and wrists of Charleston’s fashion set including the likes of Charleston Shop Curator Andrea Serrano and Look Linger Love’s Chassity Evans.

SG *FASHION FIX* – Style Profile with Tonight’s CFW Emerging Designer Siobhan!
            Charleston Fashion Week Emerging Designer Siobhan Murphy under the tents Tuesday night – catch her show TONIGHT!    When I first met Siobhan, she was interning for Candy Shop Vintage and helping Deirdre sell her jewelry at my Charleston Style Swap.

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...
