SG *FASHION FIX* – Dream Come True: Meeting Gwyneth Paltrow
            Dream Come True! Meeting actress Gwyneth Paltrow  outside Manna in Downtown Wilmington When Gwyneth Paltrow first came on the scene as Brad Pitt’s girlfriend in the mid-Nineties, I wasn’t all that keen on her. Her upper crust Spence education, the Hollywood family, flawless red-carpet looks from Calvin Klein and Brad to boot….she had the air of being a bit too perfect. Then I saw her first interview on Oprah and she completely won me over. Brad who? From that point forward, I among many, championed her before all other actresses. I can vividly recall staying up to the wee hours of the night during my...

“You’re so Beautiful, You Could be a (P/T) Model” + Win the FF Glamour Session!
          Style Girl’s impromptu photo shoot with Photographer Eric von Bargen at Beanie + Cecil featuring the beloved green Helmut Lang dress   A few weeks back, I was contacted by the city of Wilmington’s marketing firm The Brandon Agency, about participating in a promotional tourism video – focused primarily on why I love shopping in the greater Wilmington area.   Not knowing they had a hair/makeup artist on set, I went ahead and made appointments with my hair stylist Cheryl Kent of Ward Hair Salon and makeup artist Amy Kennison of MAC Cosmetics.   While driving to Lumina Station for the...

*FASHION FIX* – Facebook Fashion Discovery + WIN a must-have Makeover Accessory!
            Style Girl’s “Lace Lift” with hand-painted Comb laces in Domingo  from Austin-based Comb Collective     I can’t deny Facebook’s power of distraction. Once you’ve been seduced, it’s a temptation that becomes harder and harder to resist with each refreshed notification. On the flip side, Facebook can also be a breeding ground for new discoveries.   On a mutual friend’s page, I spotted a profile picture featuring a polka dot skirt worn with a pair of rugged boots laced with hand-painted leather shoelaces. I was immediately intrigued.   Turns out the boots (and laces) belong to Comb Collective’s co-founder and fashion designer...

FASHION FIX* – Frocktales: A Style Dedication to my Nana
            Wearing my Nana’s dress from the 1960’s with matching head scarf and her handbag with Tom Ford cateye sunnies from Oliver. New MAC Beth Ditto bronzer / Photo: Ray Dennis   This past weekend, starting at 7:30am Saturday morning (a record early start for me!), I gathered with my family at my Nana’s house in Lehighton, Pennsylvania. My cousin Kenny and sister Erica flew in from Florida and Joel and I made the 12-hour drive from North Carolina where we joined my mom, cousins Danyelle and Samantha and Uncle Danny, who still live in the area.   You...

SG *FASHION FIX* – TREND: Did You Know It’s In Style to be Patriotic? + Social Chic
        Style Girl’s intern Michael Deininger-Bell with his Fresh & Precious blog partner Courtney McGovern showing off their Americana style.   Even when Memorial Day was a few months away, did you notice stars and stripes are having a bit of a moment? Separately (stars. stripes.), that’s not all that surprising. Same goes with the red, white and blue combination. Every year when the sunshine calls, we see the “summer on the French Riveria” type of vibe, but I’m talking about in-your-face America. Get this. It’s actually kind of in style to be patriotic.   (Click HERE to see “60 Hot Hipster Girls...

                Malia McCarthy brigtens up the runway in an outfit from Monkee’s at last Thursday’s fashion show at Wine, Women & Shoes benefiting Make-A-Wish. Photo: Matt Dols   Last year, I was contacted by Make-A-Wish in Raleigh about an event they were planning on bringing to Wilmington. They expressed interest in promoting their event Wine, Women & Shoes in the FASHION FIX. I was excited to hear about the concept: fashion show, shopping, wine and most memorably, “Shoe Guys” that basically “serve” and sell shoes from local boutiques to raise money for a cause close to all our hearts,...

SG *FASHION FIX* Garden Party Panache- Season Trends
          Tess Wheatley  and Tiffany Taylor at The Garden Party after-party at Dockside I was graciously invited to attend The Garden Party with Dr. Mike Nichols and his beautiful wife Oz, who seduced everyone in her ultra sophisticated almost-antithesis Garden Party look – a black ALC jumpsuit from Beanie + Cecil, a Diane Fort Shagott headpiece from aMuse Artisanal Finery and her amazing Prada handbag just purchased in Vegas.   All day long , women approached her saying how stunning she looked, “just like Audrey Hepburn” before asking her to pose for a picture.   From candy-colored stripes, jewel tones, monogrammed...
