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...

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* – Back to School Cool: Style Profile with an 8-year-old
            Sadie Dunne celebrating her 8th birthday at Satellite Wednesday night     I recently received a message from a reporter at The Star-News inquiring about what kids want to wear back to school. Admittedly a bit clueless on the subject of kids in general, I figured I’d do a bit of research while attending my BFF Shannon’s daughter Sadie’s birthday party Wednesday night at Satellite. I had a vintage earring set with change-out multi-colored backs I’ve been meaning to give her but wanted a little something extra, too. Shannon informed me Sadie had a “box” at Learning Express.   Arriving at the...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Style Profile: 4 HOT Summer Accessories
            Collar necklaces ($27.95) from Mod in turquoise, ivory and peach Since we’re all getting a bit hot under the collar right now, I figured it was time to talk hottest summer accessories. I stopped in at Mod, Wilmington’s accessories hotspot on Market Street, and asked owner Annamaria Lookman to weigh in on her 4 fave summer trends.   1) Collars:   “For a super effortless look, wear the collar necklace with a plain t-shirt (looser crewneck). For a more fashion-forward look, there’s the double collar.”   2) Geometric / Tribal: “Wear your tribal or geometric accessories with flowy, boho high-low skirts or maxi....
