*FASHION FIX* – Highlights from Charleston Fashion Week + Spring Preview Video





Hey y’all! I’m writing this week’s FASHION FIX in Charleston via Austin. I came right from Austin’s SXSW wearing bohemian maxis and denim shorts to full-on glam at Charleston Fashion Week. As you can imagine, that was some intense packing! Six hours of deliberation and accessorizing, but who’s counting?
I promise we will resume our Top 10 essentials for Spring via the Spring Fashion Preview (watch the event video below) along with festival attire (the good along with the very bad) from Austin.
For now, I skipped tonight’s after party  to share with you a few highlights from Night #1 and #2 at Charleston Fashion Week. I really hope you will join me under the tents Friday and Saturday nights. This is the Southeast’s most mahj-or fashion event, and you seriously don’t want to miss it.





Hope to see you  under the tents

Friday + Saturday Night…
