Makeovers Revealed at Fall Fashion Preview + Fall Trends Checklist
One of my favorite highlights from last Saturday’s Fall Fashion Preview presented by Wilmington Dermatology Center was arriving at Blue Hand Home and seeing the fantastic results of Steve Ward ‘s magic scissors! BEFORE + AFTER: Lauren Corbett was our designated “Makeover Model” who signed up for a “major change” and left her hair’s fate in Steve’s hands.   INSPIRATION Steve’s inspiration for Lauren’s cut came from my favorite cut/campaign this season featuring Michelle Williams for Louis Vuitton. Ironically enough, Michelle herself was in town this weekend for the first time in 10 years showing off “Capeside” to her daugther,...

Meet the Models for Saturday's Fall Fashion Preview + Social Chic

Gatsby Gorgeous Photo Shoot at City Club + Your Chance to WIN
This time of year I get downright giddy. Fashion Week? Nah. My anniversary? That’s pretty darn special. But you know what really gets me excited? Thinking about the next Great Gatsby Gala. For someone who hosts events for a living (among an array of other things), this event in particular is my jam. In anticipation to Wilmington’s most enchanting event of the year (next Thursday September 19th at The City Club), I spent eight hours in the mansion and frolicking in the gardens at the City Club with our official Gatsby Photographer, the cat’smeowww – Lisa Brown of Bella Rose Photography and our super fetch cast of Gatsby models...

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. Recently selected as a runner-up in Garden & Gun magazine’s“Made in the South” contest, Christina is quickly becoming a Southern designer to...

Oliver’s got a Brand New Bag + Let’s Be Rebels, Wear Your White!
1. SHOP IT: LNA Desert Crew tee In a time when one Instagram post can generate 1,000 likes and multiple sales within a few hours, retailers large and small are taking note. Local boutiques like Edge of Urge and Hallelu have successfully supplemented local shopping with online sales for several years, but another one of Wilmington’s favorite boutiques – Oliver – has officially gone dot com. Now, Wilmington transplants living in New York City or LA can still discover the latest wash from Mother denim, the sexy new “it” t-shirt from LNA (see above) or an effortlessly cool wear-it-every-damn-day necklace from Ax + Apple by shopping Oliver’s new...

Seeing Double: Why I Wore my Favorite Dress 5 Days in a Row
Several months back, I received a Facebook message from Tatyana Kulida Shelley, a Russian-born painter living in Florence, Italy. She explained we may or may not have met when she was living in Wilmington although we had been Facebook friends for quite some time. About four years back, she had met my husband when he was still curating art shows for Caffe Phoenix and remembered how “lovely” he was to work with. Seeing Double. Portrait by Artist Tatyana Kulida Shelley After three years studying at the Florence Academy of Art, Tatyana had been awarded a grant to work on her portraiture...

Travel Diary from my New England Road Trip + Studio 20 Photos!
Last Thursday, I fought my cold at the “Studio 20” disco in celebration of Blueberry Creative’s relaunch (photos featured below). As hostess, I promised Austin and Adam I would be there – with silver glitter on my shoulders – no matter what I felt like (on the inside)! After my transformation was complete with the help of makeup artist Amy Kennison and Monica Kelly of Steven Ward Hair, I knew I had a sickness only a little Donna Summers could cure. But alas, after my “Last Dance” and post-event nightcap with my friend Deirdre who made the drive in from Charleston for the night, I did not...

Get on the Guest List for the *STUDIO 20* party + What to Wear
Andy Warhol and Jerry Hall with friends at Studio 54 Do you like the nightlife? Do you like to “boogie?” I think Wilmington is in need of a serious dance party. It’s summertime, people. Let’s kick up our heels and have a little fun, damn it! Lucky for us, Blueberry Fusion, the film and photography studio founded by Adam Gilbert and Austin Stinson, has a reason to celebrate.  Known for their exemplary wedding portfolio and goosebump-inducing videos (including the 2013 Azalea Festival video – click HERE), they now have a new identity (Blueberry Creative), a new studio, a new website and a...
