Pat Kusek behind the scenes at our Gatsby photo shoot Photo: Lisa Brown of Bella Rose Photography While I was in New York in late August attending my second Jazz Age Lawn Party on Governor’s Island, my friend and Gatsby Gala sponsor Pat Kusek of Kusek Financial Group was making heads turn at the 26th Annual Great Gatsby Gala in Charlotte.

Giving Back is the New Black – how to style your HALF t-shirt!
Want to wear this cool t-shirt + know half of your $ is going to kids in need? Click HERE to purchase from Half United. Did you miss me last Friday? I am contemplating taking the FASHION FIX bi-weekly with the launch of my new website (hopefully coming soon) and figured last Thursday was a good time to test drive the concept since I spent over 12 hours in the car that day, basically on a whim. It was one of those days when two friends asked for a favor, one of which involved a spontaneous road trip to a...

Triple Threat Art Show Style + Secret Hidden Talents Revealed
Featured artist Sullivan Anlyan last night at the Triple Threat art opening at Annex TRIPLE THREAT Art Opening at Annex I recently re-read David Bowie’s Proust questionnaire in Vanity Fair circa 2009 via Brain Pickings, Joel’s “favorite newsletter after the Fashion Fix.” His answers, at the same time cheeky and profound, shed light on his greatest fear – “converting kilometers to miles” – and his greatest regret, “never wearing bellbottoms.” But his answer that made me laugh out loud was his response to, “What is the quality you most like in a woman?” To this, David Bowie replied, “The ability...

Super Sized: Forever 21 sizes up to 22 – Plus or Minus? You decide

The atmosphere and the clothing felt of-the-moment and that moment was fleeting.

At least that’s the way 21...

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 magical opportunity to travel back in...
