*FASHION FIX* – Style Girl in New Orleans + Surviving Mississippi’s Giant Houseparty
  Who knew you had to escape to New Orleans to beat the heat. As Joel mixed up his signature “Moonshine Smash” (try it at Manna) at The Hotel Monteleone for Tales of the Cocktail, I reconnected with two former Wilmington stylemavens – fashion designer Amanda deLeon and Helen Howell, Island Passage’s favorite calendar girl in 85-degree weather while the rest of the North and Southeast sweltered. In preparing for any hot-weather holiday, I made sure to include a new favorite dress (a Mike Gonzalez dress from Oliver with pyramid detailing), a pair of statement earrings (Iosselliani earrings from Beanie + Cecil), my favorite...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Vintage Restyle
VINTAGE RESTYLE My heart races, my pulse quickens. It feels a little like the moment you realize you may see your crush (swoon) but more often than not, the thrill subsides and you’re left imagining “the one” that got away. I’m not talking about dating, folks. This is the intensity of professional vintage shopping! Several months ago, I experienced this familar feeling of anticipation as I entered “The Vintage Room” at The Bargain Box. I immediately spotted a glimpse of this gorgeous fabric – a bluish green with an overlaying gold foil print. Screeeech. I quickly pushed aside the two garments concealing its silhouette. In plain view,...

SG *FASHION FIX* – There’s a Folk Singer in My Bed
I thought my parents might disown me when I told them I would be hosting the Fashion Fix Royal Wedding event instead of attending their first house concert featuring Sarah Sample, an “Americana” folk singer they became smitten with during her performance on the Cayamo Cruise (a cruise ship dedicated to singer songwriters). Okay, that might be a bit dramatic but I was anticipating at least a week of the “silent treatment” from my dad. The truth is, I hated to miss it. I loved the idea of my parents hosting an actual concert inside the walls of my childhood home in Woodstown,...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Why You Need a High/Low Skirt this Spring
High-Low skirt from LF Stores L: Actress Isabel Lucas in a maxi dress with lace crop top at Coachella R: San Fran blogger from On the Racks in a billowy high-low top   We can all agree that some of the most creative dressing involves the right mix of high and low… a little YSL with J.Crew and a few vintage pieces thrown in. This Spring, as a take on the maxi skirt, I’m loving the high-low options. As a tall girl, minis can be more risky business than right on. When I recently strolled downtown in my high-low skirt (shown below) en route to...
