SG *FASHION FIX* – V-Day: What Women Want + Social Chic: Who Wore What

I’m going to go ahead and mention it. Brace yourself. Valentine’s Day
is around the corner.  I can already hear the collective groan. Or perhaps for the dwindling number of hopeless romantics, maybe a tinge
of excitement?
I can’t help but remember each year in high school –  Valentine’s
Day and the mixed feeling of dread and anticipation hearing a knock on
our classroom door. Right around 3pm, the rose deliveries began. If you were single (like most of us were), you may get a rose from a secret admirer or your crush if you were really lucky, your stalker (not so much) or the ghastly (oh, the horror) — nothing at all. To avoid feeling like a total lo-ser, it was imperative to set up a rose exchange with one of your  best friends to ensure you both received a delivery. Slick, rightttt?
Thank God those days are over. Now, these same girls (ahem, women) are looking for a romantic gesture – a home-cooked meal,  perhaps a
heartfelt poem, jewelry, her favorite flowers, chocolate and of course every guy’s favorite gift to give, lingerie.
Instead of the usual, Joel asked if I might want the James suspender
jeans from my new friends over at Courtshop that he’s  seen me eyeing online for weeks. Why, of course! See guys, it’s all about knowing what makes your girl tick…


Super excited to be wearing my early-arrival Valentine’s
day present:
James suspender jeans. Thanks, Joel! x


Since jeans are not going to be on top of most women’s V-day wish
lists, I thought I’d share two recent finds sure to make her swoon:


Stella McCartney “Be my Valentine” panties
from Lilies & Lace  – sweet & sexy! 



Marlies Dekkers Space Odyssey Balcony Bra $99

from Lilies & Lace 
I have the Marlies Dekkers bra in black and it has easily become my
favorite go-to bra. The best part is the peekaboo straps meant to be
seen as an accessory to your lower cut tops or dresses. In this case,
the perfect pop of red.
Hint: Take a peek in her bra drawer to see what size she wears!

Sometimes Madness is Wisdom:

Artwork of Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald

2.3.2013 at Cameron Art Museum


A sold-out presentation  from Eleanor Lanahan, the granddaughter of Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald, was held in honor of her grandmother’s artwork on display in “Sometimes Madness is Wisdom: The Artwork of Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald” at The Cameron Art Museum last Sunday.


Eleanor Lanahan didn’t realize her grandparents, the renowned jazz-age
writer and his quintessential flapper wife, were famous until she was
11 years old.  Scott passed away before Eleanor was born, and she
was only an infant when Zelda died in a mental hospital fire in
Asheville in 1948. But Lanahan did grow up surrounded by her
grandmother’s artwork – fanciful images of cityscapes and distorted
figures lifted from the Bible, the stage, fables and nursery rhymes –

which she lent to the CAM for the exhibit.
