SG *FASHION FIX* – Jess + Gay’s Adventures at SXSW in Austin
      AUSTIN SXSW 2012     By: Jess James & Gay Adair   Gay: Let’s just get this out of the way..South By Southwest (or “SouthBy as the locals say), the gigantic music festival in Austin, Texas each spring, is a blast.  I’ll go back.  Before we got there, the word all round went like this, “The festival is not what it used to be, ruined.”  And, “Way too many people;  go to Austin at another time” and, ” Miss the craziness, you can’t get food or drinks and the traffic is unbelievable!” As Jess wryly commented, “Gayyyyy, come on.

Austin – SXSW 2012 (cont..)
Rule Breakers   Jess:   To escape, my friend Stella French (who was living in Austin for a few weeks leading up to the festival) and I decided we’d much rather join the fashionable folks we spotted on the balcony at The Driskill Hotel.   En route to the balcony, I spotted ShopBop Fashion Director Kate Ciepluch, an Instagram friend, who shared that she was there filming a secret project. Oh, the intrigue.   Stella and I climbed the marble staircase two steps at a time only to find that the balcony  was part of a private party hosted by...

*FASHION FIX* – Highlights from Charleston Fashion Week + Spring Preview Video
        Hey y’all! I’m writing this week’s FASHION FIX in Charleston via Austin. I came right from Austin’s SXSW wearing bohemian maxis and denim shorts to full-on glam at Charleston Fashion Week. As you can imagine, that was some intense packing! Six hours of deliberation and accessorizing, but who’s counting?   I promise we will resume our Top 10 essentials for Spring via the Spring Fashion Preview (watch the event video below) along with festival attire (the good along with the very bad) from Austin.   For now, I skipped tonight’s after party  to share with you a few highlights from Night #1...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Top 10 Trends for Spring: Neon + Social Chic
          Last Thursday, there were far more fashionistas in Blue Hand Home than home furnishings.  In celebration of the annual FASHION FIX Spring Fashion Preview presented by Wilmington Dermatology Center, Tracy and Arnie transferred couches, dining tables, textured rugs and a menagerie of interior accents to a home they are staging to make room for a runway and a variety of pop-up shops from Wilmington’s favorite boutiques and designers.   For the next several weeks, I will share with you the Top 10 Trends for Spring we previewed that evening, starting with NEON worn to perfection by model Ozlem Nichols. This ALC “caution...

*FASHION FIX* – How a Style Swap Crisis was Averted, Swap Video + Oscars Review
Style Girl Jess James | Fashion Fix           VIDEO: Click above to watch the super fun Style Swap Charleston video produced by The Three Divas!   For the past several months, I’ve been in touch with Arielle, who works at a production company called 44 Blue based in LA. She originally contacted me after discovering the Style Swap website. She said they were intrigued with the concept as a potential for a reality-based show, and wanted to know more. They are producing their first style-based show “House of Consignment” documenting Chicago-based fashionista Corri McFadden’s online high-end consignment...

SG *FASHION FIX* – See What Look Linger Love is Bringing to Style Swap Charleston!
  Style Girl Jess James | Fashion Fix     Chassity Aull Evans of Look Linger Love + the J.Crew espadrilles she is bringing to Style Swap!   Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of enjoying a honey latte with Style Swap Charleston co-hostess Chassity Aull Evans of must-read blog Look Linger Love. Not only is her blog a Pinterest junkies paradise, but apparently she also has great taste in music (I ran into her at the Avett Brothers concert two nights prior). Wink. Naturally, Chassity has a covetable wardrobe (did you catch sight of her fabulous shoes last year at Charleston Fashion...

SG *FASHION FIX* Style Girl Photo Shoot + Social Chic from Founders Gala
    Style Girl Jess James | Fashion Fix       Since the Style Girl Vintage Collection now has a home both downtown at aMuse Artisanal Finery (19 South 2nd Street) and at Tickled Pink at Lumina Station, my intern (sometimes referred to as Brad to my Rachel) Michael Deininger-Bell texted me over the holidays, “Pleasssse can we take some pictures?” So, the Style Girl / FASHION FIX team (Michael, a talented emerging photographer and Juliana, my trusted do-it-all girl Friday) invaded Tayloe Gray’s new office space downtown, which was once akin to a Madame Tussaud’s take on the African safari now in transition from former...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Fashion Sense vs. Fashion 2 Cents – Dad Weighs In…
    Style Girl Jess James | Fashion Fix       Even if you’ve never met my dad, chances are if we’re friends on Facebook, you may have noticed a reliable “Dave James like this” under a variety of my posts. This isn’t surprising from a dad who once took a half of day off from work to surprise me at a live radio remote with Q102 at the Cherry Hill Mall – just in time to see me escort the Camden Aquarium’s shark mascot as part of my internship duties. A self-professed “Daddy’s girl,” my dad and I agree on a few key points – that...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Golden Globes: See which Local Style Star Walked the Red Carpet!
  Style Girl Jess James | Fashion Fix         Zoe Deschanel at The Golden Globes Once again, I missed The Golden Globes – but with good reason. Sunday night, instead of parking it on the couch, I joined some of my favorite friends at Satellite where we cut a rug, drank some moonshine and promenaded our partners under the tutelage of the “Mouth of the South,” and the rest of the Nashville boys who make up the Hog Slop String Band.   Much more “yee-haw” than “And, who are you wearing tonight?” but have no fear – Shannon represented with her Rag &...
