Style Profile: Belk’s Fashion Director’s Top 3 Trends for Spring
Belk’s VP of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Director — Arlene Goldstein I hadn’t seen Arlene Goldstein, Belk’s VP of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Direction, for at least four years but she was just as charming as I remembered when we sat down for a one-on-one interview during her visit to the Crabtree Valley Mall Belk in Raleigh this week. As a seasoned fashion veteran with more than 25 years in the industry at Parisian and Saks combined with her post at Belk, her passion and quest for new-ness is contagious. Here are her three favorite trends for Spring 2014: (To...

Best mod boots for fall: These boots are made for walking!
It started with the almost perfect-but-not-quite flat boots I found at Clothes Mentor. Subconsciously, the sleek modern shape and low block heel was already in my periphery before I realized it was actually “on trend.” The boot at Clothes Mentor was a wee bit too tight and the buckle on the side a tad too big and silver. I imagined finding the ideal – something close to the little black vintage Beatles boots my friend Helen scored on Etsy and wore religiously during my visit to Birmingham a few years back. I inspected pages of vintage black boots on Etsy...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Best Photos: Keeping it Warm at New York Fashion Week: Nemo
      Photo: Tommy Ton     A fashion emergency went into effect in New York this past week as fashion editors, socialites, buyers and bloggers had to trade out their thigh high stilettos and 6-inch platform heels for flat boots and Wellies.   The style tribe kept a close watch on their weather app for Nemo blizzard updates in between loading blurry runway shots to their Instagram feed.   No matter the number of spills on and off the runway, it was clear that the show(s) must go on.   Below is a collection of some of my favorite New York Fashion Week: Nemo edition...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Social Chic: Who Says There's Nothing to Do in Wilmington?
          Getting ready for the hospital’s annual Founders Gala last weekend in a vintage red suede dress,  clutch from Candy Shop Vintage. Hair & Makeup by Emily Wetzel  of Seagrass Salon   Whoever says there is nothing to do in Wilmington can bite their tongue.  Post-holidays can be a bit blah but by late January, the events season is in full swing elevating the dinner-and-back-home-again crowd into full fledged socialites. For a peek at last weekend’s adventures in Wilmywood (which included some creative outfit changes), see the Social Chic albums below. Enjoy the freedom that comes along with the freakin’ weekend. Hope...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Fashionably Late + 3 Ways to Wear the T-shirt Everyone Wants!
        Must-Have Tee: “Sorry I’m Late” t-shirt worn by Tracy Tang Available this coming week at Blue Hand Home   There seemed to be a theme at Cindy Vach’s birthday gathering earlier this week. I predictably arrived late. Perhaps, only in honor of the birthday girl, who also is famous for being fashionably late? Nice try. Then, Tracy Tang (the owner of Blue Hand Home) arrived even later. With one glance at her t-shirt (worn under her chic black blazer), all was forgiven, drinks were ordered and everyone had a new t-shirt to add to their Pinterest or in my case, Instagram feed. Cheers to...

SG *FASHION FIX* – 2012 Magic Moments: Looking Back Before Moving Ahead
      It’s been an incredibly difficult past few weeks losing our precious dog Buster and now my beloved Nana.  I have not yet embraced moving forward into 2013 so I thought I might get inspired by first taking a look back at some of 2012’s more magical moments. Here’s hoping for brighter days. Thank you for your prayers and comforting words. xo, Jess   One of my favorite portraits of Nana from the 1940’s         2nd Annual Great Gatsby Gala     Held at The City Club  and presented this year by DreamCarSource.com this night of Jazz Age...

        Top of my Christmas list: Alexis Bittar rose gold cuff $295 from Ziabird   If you’re anything like me, you’ve still got plenty of Christmas shopping left to do. Girl, I feel your pain. Holiday shopping can be a bit stressful and overwhelming as the deadline looms. But hey, it’s the end of the world and we’re still here so let’s make the most of it, riiiiiight?   And you’ve got to admit it feels pretty amazing when you find something you know (they) will love.   I have a feeling my loved ones have already done their shopping (show offs!)...
