“Overplanning kills magic.” Designer Profile + CFW Highlights
Wilmington Fashion Designer Casey Crespo with models wearing her collection at Charleston Fashion Week Wilmington Fashion Designer Casey Crespo (whose amazing leggings you may recall seeing in the FASHION FIX (read profile here) showed at Charleston Fashion Week on Friday evening two weeks ago. I had hoped to be front & center cheering her on, but alas was stuck in the Miami aiport (I will refrain from complaining since I was coming straight from Puerto Rico Fashion Week!). I made it under the tents for the finale night (see some other highlights below) but was excited to catch up with...

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...

(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. My,...

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.

Full disclosure: I must admit I fell asleep while editing photos somewhere in the wee...

Time for some new britches at Charleston’s Pretend Store
STATE founder and designer Adrienne Antonson Seeing designer Adrienne Antonson’s collection STATE for the first time at Charleston Fashion Week in March 2012, you instinctively knew you were seeing something different. Between the garments’ raw beauty, sustainability and utilitarian aesthetic paired with Adrienne’s luminosity, “IT” was happening and she just just seemed so damn cool. I met Adrienne in passing that week through mutual friends but heard from her a few months later asking if she could send one of my photos she loved from her show’s finale for a piece in DailyCandy. Naturally I was flattered and secretly pleased...

Charleston Designer You Need to Know + WIN her earrings!
Around the time of Charleston Fashion Week, several bold textured gold rings from Christina Jervey Jewelry first caught my eye in Ayoka Lucas’s white themed spring fashion spreadin Charleston Magazine.  Next, my friend Deirdre tagged me in a photo of Christina Jervey pyramid stud earrings on Instagram knowing how I have a thing for triangles. Since then, I’ve noticed Christina’s gold structural statement pieces on the fingers and wrists of Charleston’s fashion set including the likes of Charleston Shop Curator Andrea Serrano and Look Linger Love’s Chassity Evans. Recently selected as a runner-up in Garden & Gun magazine’s“Made in the South” contest, Christina is quickly becoming a Southern designer to...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Style Profile with Tonight's CFW Emerging Designer Siobhan!
            Charleston Fashion Week Emerging Designer Siobhan Murphy under the tents Tuesday night – catch her show TONIGHT!    When I first met Siobhan, she was interning for Candy Shop Vintage and helping Deirdre sell her jewelry at my Charleston Style Swap. Easily the best dressed in a vintage disco-ready silver hued jumpsuit, she purchased a backless Jean Paul Gaultier white blouse from my vintage collection that day. I immediately was impressed. Girl knows her vintage! And with her signature style and a  name like Siobhan, she’s hard to forget.   Around this same time, Siobhan launched ReTulled Tutus, a couture and ready-to-wear tutu...
