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. Easily the best dressed in a vintage disco-ready silver hued jumpsuit, she purchased a backless Jean Paul Gaultier white blouse from my vintage collection that day. I immediately was impressed. Girl knows her vintage! And with her signature style and a  name like Siobhan, she’s hard to forget.   Around this same time, Siobhan launched ReTulled Tutus, a couture and ready-to-wear tutu...

SG *FASHION FIX* – V-Day: What Women Want + Social Chic: Who Wore What
    Photo: Journelle   I’m going to go ahead and mention it. Brace yourself. Valentine’s Day is around the corner.  I can already hear the collective groan. Or perhaps for the dwindling number of hopeless romantics, maybe a tinge of excitement?   I can’t help but remember each year in high school –  Valentine’s Day and the mixed feeling of dread and anticipation hearing a knock on our classroom door. Right around 3pm, the rose deliveries began. If you were single (like most of us were), you may get a rose from a secret admirer or your crush if you were really...

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. Hope...

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...

SG *FASHION FIX* – In Loving Tribute to Buster
        Rest in Peace My love, Buster  I planned to feature a Year in Review for 2012 before looking ahead to 2013 this week, but a personal tragedy has left a deep ache in my heart, shaking the  foundation of my world. This Wednesday at 3:30pm,  Joel and I lost our best friend. My one constant for the past 14 years from the day I chose him (or perhaps he chose me) for his adorable, crooked run. He showed us an unconditional love that no other person or pet could ever provide. Although heartbreaking, we know it was time to give him peace. We...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Style Girl's Christmas Diary: Preparing for Goodbye
    Meet Sky, my dad’s new dog, a rescue lab from Wilmington   There’s just something about the holidays. Being surrounded by your family, there’s always a touch of nostalgia, maybe a bit of family drama that dies hard, and inevitably a reckoning of one’s true self.  As I write this, I’m in my pajamas (my cashmere sweats from A Second Time Around that I seem to live in these days), no makeup, no shower (TMI?) on my in-laws couch listening to Bob Dylan in between laughs and tears. Our holiday adventure started off with the best kind of holiday gift. After my parents lost their beloved 11-year-old...
