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. Currently employed...
*FASHION FIX* Because You Look Like You Give a Damn: 3 Essentials for 007 Style
      Daniel Craig as James Bond in the latest 007 film, Skyfall   For 50 years, men have wanted to be him and women have wanted to be with him. Who is this master of seduction?   Bond, James Bond. (you know I had to do that. It’s a requirement for writing any Bond-themed piece.)   With the release of the franchise’s 23rd 007 film “Skyfall” hitting released last week, it’s time to take another look at what makes 007 so alluring. Besides his coolness under pressure, fancy toys, bravado and of course the Bond bombshells, it’s Bond’s enduring style that continues to make...

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...

*FASHION FIX* – Fall Trends Checklist from the Fall Fashion Preview + Video
            With my favorite dermatologist Dr. Rosalyn George of Wilmington Dermatology Center at last Thursday’s Fall Fashion Preview  (both wearing Beanie + Cecil) As we prepare fashion, beauty and skincare season trends and tips for the bi-annual FASHION FIX Preview events, Dr. Rosalyn George’s contribution holds new meaning for me since I was one of her patients diagnosed with basal cell skin cancer only a few short months ago. Even though I try my best to keep my fair skin out of the sun and wear my SPF 15 moisturizer religiously, there is still past damage that cannot be reversed. Luckily, I...

SG *FASHION FIX* – 5 questions for a Jewelry Designer you can meet tomorrow!
                New Emily Claire fringed shield bracelet Jewelry Designer Claire Jacobs  is bringing to her Trunk Show at Ziabird this Saturday   As I was making my rounds pulling clothes for the Fall Fashion Preview, I came across a Parisian-based clothing line Lauren Vidal at Ziabird at Lumina Station, that immediately struck my fancy. Each piece has clean lines, feminine silhouettes but with exquisite details like the leather trim on the poncho (which I discovered first on my hair stylist Cheryl Kent) or the sheer black overlay over the knit tank dress. Trying on my favorite Lauren Vidal pieces...

SG *FASHION FIX* – PHOTOS: Partying like it’s 1929 at 2nd Annual Great Gatsby!
      Dressed to party like it’s 1929 at The 2nd Annual Great Gatsby Gala Although last Friday September 20th marked the 2nd Annual Gatsby Gala at The City Club (presented by Ben Swaim of DreamCarSource.com), there were certainly quite a few firsts. I made my debut as a platinum blonde with a 1920’s inspired bob wig from Coco Coquette in Austin. We had Charleston guests in the house (holla!). Our wide-eyed innocent young Daisy (photographer Lisa Brown’s beautiful daughter Isabele) saw her first burlesque show in the City Club’s Speakeasy. My dad put on a tuxedo for what most likely was the first time ever...
