SG *FASHION FIX* – Finding off-the-runway inspiration at New York Fashion Week
        Happy Fashion Week! The mah-jor ladies of fashion enjoying NYFW photo: @lenaperminova    Since I was not able to make it to New York for Fashion Week this year, the next best thing is living the experience via some of my favorite fashion personalities’ Instagram feeds. Of course, it’s all about what’s next on the runway for Spring 2013 but I tend to find the most inspiration from what’s going on along the perimeter. Thought I’d share with you a few inspiring photos from the week in hopes of giving you your weekend dose of FASHION FIX!  ...

              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...

            Thursday Friday totes, now available at Lilies & Lace at Lumina Station Photo: Joyus   I first heard about Thursday Friday bags from my friend Deirdre (of Candy Shop Vintage) in Charleston. They had just arrived at a King Street boutique and she was scrambling to get her hands on one since they were rumored to be selling out everywhere. If you’ve always wanted to carry a Balenciaga or Chanel bag, now you can (well, kinda!) Thursday Friday’s signature “Together Bags” are carryall canvas totes screenprinted with a highly coveted Chanel, Balenciaga or Birkin bag. Noted in the New York Times as “this...

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...
