SG *FASHION FIX* – Social Chic: Who Says There’s Nothing to Do in Wilmington?
          Getting ready for the hospital’s annual Founders Gala last weekend in a vintage red suede dress,  clutch from Candy Shop Vintage. Hair & Makeup by Emily Wetzel  of Seagrass Salon   Whoever says there is nothing to do in Wilmington can bite their tongue.  Post-holidays can be a bit blah but by late January, the events season is in full swing elevating the dinner-and-back-home-again crowd into full fledged socialites. For a peek at last weekend’s adventures in Wilmywood (which included some creative outfit changes), see the Social Chic albums below. Enjoy the freedom that comes along with the freakin’ weekend.

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* – Photo Travel Diary: Headed North
    Travel Essential: my Casey Crespo handmade, organic, fleece-lined colorblock leggings! I wore them at least three times in nine days, plus as pajama pants. They are highly addictive and the ultimate in comfort chic!   Driving north for my Nana’s funeral with overwhelming loss weighing heavy in our hearts, I couldn’t help but miss the unmistakable cadence of Buster’s bullet breath behind us in the backseat. Luckily, we had the welcome distraction of a book on CD, “Unbroken” by Laura Hillenbrand, graciously purchased for us by our friend Steve Ward in prepartion for our long journey to Pennsylvania.   If you have yet...

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...

*FASHION FIX* – The Anti-Holiday Photo Shoot + Social Chic from Beanie + Cecil
          Luke, Sadie & Tully Dunne in our Wes Anders0n-inspired Holiday Photo Shoot   Whenever this time of year rolls around, moms across the country inevitably start fretting over their latest holiday family photo to include in this year’s batch of Christmas cards. Surely, her husband and brood understand that this year’s photo simply must rival last year’s and the year before – not to mention her best friend’s.   It’s been ages since my sister and I stood in front of the fireplace with our stockings hung with care for our holiday snapshot and even longer since we sat together in a...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Win a Merewif Necklace + Best Dressed Audrey & Disco Queens
              Wilmington-based Jewelry Designer Savannah Watson wearing a variety of pieces from her newly-launched jewelry collection, Merewif I first met Savannah via Facebook. A Wilmington native with an emerging career in fashion, she was contemplating making the move back home from LA, and looking for advice. We all know the catch to living in Wilmington. It’s a beautiful place to live, but a hard place to make a living.   Several months later, we met at one of my Fashion Preview events. Savannah happened to be in town and decided to get a firsthand look at the Wilmington fashion community.

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...
