*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...

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...

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...

          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...

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* – Style Girl's Got a Brand New Bag!
  Style Girl Jess James | Fashion Fix       Pour la Victoire handbags featured in Gilt Groupe’s sale.    I’ve never been one to subscribe to the whole IT bag obsession. There are the classics – the Louis, Coach and the quilted Chanel. Or for some style girls, it’s all about the latest Balenciaga or Alexander Wang. Handbags, along with coats and shoes, are typically seen as investment items since you get the most cost-per-wear out of them. And if you find “the one,” it may just become one of your signature staples. Hell, there’s even a website ( Bag, Borrow 0r Steal)...
