Transformative Trip to San Fran – Day 1 / Happy Garden Party!
San Francisco LOVE. So last Friday I set off for the trip of my dreams to San Francisco. It’s still kind of a secret so I can’t divulge everything quite yet, dear readers but I’m hoping to share with you some of my experiences over the next few weeks. Let’s just say I have a team of magical travel fairies that reside at the corporate headquarters of Airbnb in San Francisco (which all started with my amazing friend Stella, who is an Airbnb-er based in Charleston). It was five days of mystery, surprise, inspiration, new experiences and new friends. I...

Front Row Coverage from Puerto Rico Fashion Week with Trish McEvoy
With Roxanna and Susannah of Trish McEvoy at Puerto Rico Fashion Week Hola! I’m back from Puerto Rico and it was just as dreamy as Susannah promised. Last week, I drove to Charleston to connect with Angharad, the Media Director for Charleston Fashion Week. I brought her a few options from Style Girl Vintage and was excited to hear she ended up wearing a blue polka dot dress to the luncheon with Fern Mallis (creator of New York Fashion Week). Before taking in the finale evening of the 8th Charleston Fashion Week I joined the Trish McEvoy makeup team to...

Sharing my Checklist for my 8th Charleston Fashion Week
2013 Winning Emerging Designer Afriyie’s show kicking off the first night at Charleston Fashion Week 2014. (Photo: Leigh Moose of Side Yard Studios) You might be hard pressed to find another person (besides this Style Girl) who has attended every night at Charleston Fashion Week since its inception eight years ago (ok, MAYBE Chelsie Ravenell. But, that’s a maybe.) Back then, guests were more likely to wear a gingham sundress than Gucci and a”blog” was just a buzz word, perhaps a passing phase for people who liked to spend a little too much time in front of their computers.

Makeovers Revealed at Fall Fashion Preview + Fall Trends Checklist
One of my favorite highlights from last Saturday’s Fall Fashion Preview presented by Wilmington Dermatology Center was arriving at Blue Hand Home and seeing the fantastic results of Steve Ward ‘s magic scissors! BEFORE + AFTER: Lauren Corbett was our designated “Makeover Model” who signed up for a “major change” and left her hair’s fate in Steve’s hands.   INSPIRATION Steve’s inspiration for Lauren’s cut came from my favorite cut/campaign this season featuring Michelle Williams for Louis Vuitton. Ironically enough, Michelle herself was in town this weekend for the first time in 10 years showing off “Capeside” to her daugther,...

We are appraoching my first-ever event on a Saturday night this weekend. I’m ready for a party. How about it, Wilmington?

Most importantly, this is a community-based event that brings together women (and men! We even have our first male model this year) of all ages to empower creative expression and to prove you really can “make (the trends) work” for at any age. Wondering who you will see on the runway this time?...

PHOTOS: Best Dressed Gatsby Guests + Fall Fashion Preview Oct 5
You knew it was coming. The Fall Fashion Preview may be right around the corner but we needed one last hurrah for Gatsby mania, right? There is no better excuse for reliving one of the most enchanting evenings of the year at The City Club than the release of Lisa Brown of Bella Rose Photography’s gorgeous Gatsby photographs. Poor Lisa is in a losing battle with a major cold right now so Gatsby guests will need to hold tight for one more week until ALL the photos will be released on www.pictage.com. I’ve included some of my favorites in the...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Social Chic: Who Says There's Nothing to Do in Wilmington?
          Getting ready for the hospital’s annual Founders Gala last weekend in a vintage red suede dress,  clutch from Candy Shop Vintage. Hair & Makeup by Emily Wetzel  of Seagrass Salon   Whoever says there is nothing to do in Wilmington can bite their tongue.  Post-holidays can be a bit blah but by late January, the events season is in full swing elevating the dinner-and-back-home-again crowd into full fledged socialites. For a peek at last weekend’s adventures in Wilmywood (which included some creative outfit changes), see the Social Chic albums below. Enjoy the freedom that comes along with the freakin’ weekend.
