SG *FASHION FIX* – Style Profile with Tonight's CFW Emerging Designer Siobhan!
            Charleston Fashion Week Emerging Designer Siobhan Murphy under the tents Tuesday night – catch her show TONIGHT!    When I first met Siobhan, she was interning for Candy Shop Vintage and helping Deirdre sell her jewelry at my Charleston Style Swap. Easily the best dressed in a vintage disco-ready silver hued jumpsuit, she purchased a backless Jean Paul Gaultier white blouse from my vintage collection that day. I immediately was impressed. Girl knows her vintage! And with her signature style and a  name like Siobhan, she’s hard to forget.   Around this same time, Siobhan launched ReTulled Tutus, a couture and ready-to-wear tutu...

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* – 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...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Style Girl's Christmas Diary: Preparing for Goodbye
    Meet Sky, my dad’s new dog, a rescue lab from Wilmington   There’s just something about the holidays. Being surrounded by your family, there’s always a touch of nostalgia, maybe a bit of family drama that dies hard, and inevitably a reckoning of one’s true self.  As I write this, I’m in my pajamas (my cashmere sweats from A Second Time Around that I seem to live in these days), no makeup, no shower (TMI?) on my in-laws couch listening to Bob Dylan in between laughs and tears. Our holiday adventure started off with the best kind of holiday gift. After my parents lost their beloved 11-year-old...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Social Chic: Somewhere over the Rainbow in Charleston
          John and Deirdre Zahl as the Tin Man and Glinda The Good Witch Photo: Jess James  After years of hearing about Charleston’s annual glamorous Red Party benefiting the American College of The Building Arts, I had the pleasure of actually attending last Thursday October 25th at The Old Charleston Jail.   With Wilmington’s Gay Adair on my air in head-to-toe emerald green, we followed the yellow brick road through the dungeon-like hallway to the magical canopy under the stars where we found revelers in ravishing red or Wizard of Oz-themed attire, this year’s sub-theme.   Although there really is no place like...

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!  ...

            Candy Shop Vintage’s “Trillium Set” worn by Joan Holloway in the latest episode of MAD MEN   One time at Fashion Week….   Something wonderful happened.

We had just met one of our style mentors, Award-winning Costume Designer for MAD MEN, the lovely Janie Bryant, who was in town as one of CFW’s celebrity runway judges for the emerging designer competition. And get this – she said she was interested in seeing some pieces from Candy Shop Vintage, Deirdre’s Charleston-based vintage jewelry collection (read the...

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. That sounds like...
