Fashionably Late Highlights from Charleston Fashion Week!
New friends thanks to Charleston Fashion Week! Stylists Jess James & Brooke Williams (Photo: Obed Danjoint) Last Thursday, three nights in at Charleston Fashion Week, I was determined to send out my FASHION FIX – even after a long night of sartorial adventures with my new friend stylist Brooke Williams. Our night began early with a behind the scenes meet-and-greet with last year’s Charleston Fashion Week emerging designer winner Afriyie’s all-star team and ended with a nightcap St. Germaine cocktail at Prohibition (the official after-party). Full disclosure: I must admit I fell asleep while editing photos somewhere in the wee...

Fashion Mafia dreams do come true? #springfashionpreview6
At the Spring Fashion Preview with Presenting Sponsor Dr. Rosalyn George With grand illusions of leaving for Charleston at 7am for the highly-anticipated Candy Shop Vintage luncheon, I spent the day in my pajamas instead, recovering from my Spring Fashion Preview Wednesday night at the Cameron Art Museum. If you know the dichotomy on how my husband Joel and I differ when it comes to fashion (hint: his outfit of the day is almost always “top-of-the-drawer” inspired resulting in “quirky,” not always clean ensembles) you may begin to understand why he refers to my world jokingly as “Fashion Mafia.” In...

Style Profile with my BFF – From Sartorialist to Simplifying in South Korea
Portrait of Helen Howell Priest in Downtown Raleigh Photo by Jess James You may recognize Helen as one of Island Passage’s golden Calendar Girls from year’s past. Perhaps you spotted her daydreaming while walking to her apartment downtown (she never had a driver’s license while living here). Hell, there’s a really good chance she pinched your baby’s cheeks or cooed over your bulldog’s overbite. Even though she has not called Wilmington home for the past six years, chances are if you met Helen, you wouldn’t soon forget her innocent spirit, girlish laugh or genuine kindheartedness. She was one of my...

A Southern Snow Style Story + Best Dressed Photos
Photo by Victor Giarrusso I could barely believe it when I woke up and there was snow (or, a white “icy mix”) on the ground – in Wilmington! What a rare treat. I could almost taste the anticipaton building from the neighborhood kids (big and small) from the cadence of their laughter and makeshift sleds dragging on the ice behind them outside our bedroom window. It felt something like Christmas morning when you knew Santa had something special waiting for you under the tree. For a city that is not really prepared for snow, we sure know how to improvise....

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...
