All Leisure Society frames are individually numbered and handmade in Japan.
On a personal note, I wanted to share the very happy news that Joel and I adopted a new puppy named Dakota from Saving Grace, based in Wake Forest, NC.
From the moment we lost Buster, our house just did not feel like a home without the little pitter patter of feet behind us. Even though Joel was afraid it was too soon, I just started to scan a number of shelters’ Facebook pages daily until one day Dakota popped up. I just knew she was the one! From the moment I saw her, she ran full speed ahead into my arms and the rest, as they say, is history. She’s between 7-10 months old and is supposedly an Australian Shepherd/ American Eskimo/Golden Retriever mix. Whatever she is, we love her! Shortly before we made the final decision to welcome Dakota into our home, Joel and I saw a rainbow at Wrightsville Beach (when there was no rain in sight) so we like to think Buster was giving us his sign of approval 🙂
I will be highlighting my top 7 fashion moments from my seventh year covering Charleston Fashion Week in the May issue of Focus on the Coast magazine. Till then, here is a brief look at a few favorite memories since last Friday’s FIX:

The ultimate Southern prep models styled out by Social Primer in their SP Smoking fall collection for the fashion show portion of the evening. As you can imagine ladies, this was by far the highlight of the evening!
