Super Sized: Forever 21 sizes up to 22 – Plus or Minus? You decide
Super Sized: Forever 21 sizes up to 22 I discovered Forever 21 shortly after I turned 21. It sounded as if shopping in this store might have an expiration date. The atmosphere and the clothing felt of-the-moment and that moment was fleeting. I got stuck on the name and began tossing around the sentiment that perhaps one day, I just may want to be “forever 21.” Dancing into the wee hours of the night on bar tops at IUP, spending hours developing film in the darkroom, discovering London and living a relatively carefree existence. At least that’s the way 21...

Jazz Age Lawn Party Virgin No More! Best Dressed Photos
Photo: Vogue Brasil   TIME TRAVEL: Jazz Age Lawn Party Virgin No More!   Ever since I started hosting the Great Gatsby Gala at The City Club four years ago, I longed to don my 20’s finery to lounge and frolic in the grass (with my St. Germain cocktail in hand) at The Jazz Age Lawn Party held twice a year (June and August) on Governor’s Island. Hosted by Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra and selected by The New York Times as one of the most memorable events of 2011 and 2012, The Jazz Age Lawn Party offers a...

Style Profile: Belk's Fashion Director's Top 3 Trends for Spring
Belk’s VP of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Director — Arlene Goldstein I hadn’t seen Arlene Goldstein, Belk’s VP of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Direction, for at least four years but she was just as charming as I remembered when we sat down for a one-on-one interview during her visit to the Crabtree Valley Mall Belk in Raleigh this week. As a seasoned fashion veteran with more than 25 years in the industry at Parisian and Saks combined with her post at Belk, her passion and quest for new-ness is contagious. Here are her three favorite trends for Spring 2014: (To...

Best mod boots for fall: These boots are made for walking!
It started with the almost perfect-but-not-quite flat boots I found at Clothes Mentor. Subconsciously, the sleek modern shape and low block heel was already in my periphery before I realized it was actually “on trend.” The boot at Clothes Mentor was a wee bit too tight and the buckle on the side a tad too big and silver. I imagined finding the ideal – something close to the little black vintage Beatles boots my friend Helen scored on Etsy and wore religiously during my visit to Birmingham a few years back. I inspected pages of vintage black boots on Etsy...

Interview with MAD MEN Costume Designer Janie Bryant!
Although MAD MEN Season 6 is set in the late 60’s, each character maintains their own signature style developed by Costume Designer Janie Bryant over the past several seasons. Don sticks to his classic suits and striped ties while Joan continues to give new meaning to the “wiggle” dress. Peggy is putting some polish to her mod skirt suits and adding a bit of panache with neck ties and berets while Megan and Harry Crane (MAD MEN’s most fashion-forward characters) really bring a touch of the 70’s with graphic prints, go go boots, mini skirts, bell bottoms and even a...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Fashionably Late + 3 Ways to Wear the T-shirt Everyone Wants!
        Must-Have Tee: “Sorry I’m Late” t-shirt worn by Tracy Tang Available this coming week at Blue Hand Home   There seemed to be a theme at Cindy Vach’s birthday gathering earlier this week. I predictably arrived late. Perhaps, only in honor of the birthday girl, who also is famous for being fashionably late? Nice try. Then, Tracy Tang (the owner of Blue Hand Home) arrived even later. With one glance at her t-shirt (worn under her chic black blazer), all was forgiven, drinks were ordered and everyone had a new t-shirt to add to their Pinterest or in my case, Instagram feed. Cheers to...

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...
