              Lindsay Fleege, Charleston stylista & Cynthia Rowley Retail & Events Manager featured on Style Syllabus wearing vintage high-waisted shorts from my Style Girl Collection along with her signature collared blouse and Proud Mary necklaces It seems these days that every fashion blog is essentially a show-and-tell with said blogger photographed in their “Best Costume for the Day,” a description coined by beloved stylemaven Little Edie Beale. Earlier this summer, I was asked to share five outfits for a new Charleston-based blog, Style Syllabus. To see the 5 shades of Style Girl, click here....

*FASHION FIX* – Style Profile + 2 transitional must-haves from summer to fall
            Loose Threads boutique owner Laura Jasorka / Photo: Jess James   One of my dearest friends Melissa is coming to visit. We like to say we’re “godsisters” since our parents are best friends and also my godparents. I’ve known her for as long as I can remember. We used to lock ourselves away for hours staked out on her bunk bed with our bag full of barbies. Eventually, barbies gave way to boys, broken curfews, late-night dancing queens and bachelorette parties. She was the one who introduced me to Joel at fourteen that fated...

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....

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...
