*FASHION FIX* Social Chic: Wilmington Works It (on + off the runway) for Wishes
                Malia McCarthy brigtens up the runway in an outfit from Monkee’s at last Thursday’s fashion show at Wine, Women & Shoes benefiting Make-A-Wish. Photo: Matt Dols   Last year, I was contacted by Make-A-Wish in Raleigh about an event they were planning on bringing to Wilmington. They expressed interest in promoting their event Wine, Women & Shoes in the FASHION FIX. I was excited to hear about the concept: fashion show, shopping, wine and most memorably, “Shoe Guys” that basically “serve” and sell shoes from local boutiques to raise money for a cause close to all our hearts,...

*FASHION FIX* Style Girl Victory: Dressing a NYC Art Star for his Sold-Out Show
          Joel and Jess with our dear friend, painter Brad Kunkle, at his second sold-out show  “Gilded Wilderness” at Arcadia Gallery in Soho      “It’s perfect.  SGV… Style Girl Victory” Brad declared as he looked at his reflection in the mirror at Topman wearing a blazer I handed him to try on a few minutes earlier. It was two days before his sophomore exhibit opening show “Gilded Wilderness” at Arcadia Gallery in Soho.

          Tess Wheatley  and Tiffany Taylor at The Garden Party after-party at Dockside I was graciously invited to attend The Garden Party with Dr. Mike Nichols and his beautiful wife Oz, who seduced everyone in her ultra sophisticated almost-antithesis Garden Party look – a black ALC jumpsuit from Beanie + Cecil, a Diane Fort Shagott headpiece from aMuse Artisanal Finery and her amazing Prada handbag just purchased in Vegas.   All day long , women approached her saying how stunning she looked, “just like Audrey Hepburn” before asking her to pose for a picture.   From candy-colored stripes, jewel tones, monogrammed...

        Hey y’all! I’m writing this week’s FASHION FIX in Charleston via Austin. I came right from Austin’s SXSW wearing bohemian maxis and denim shorts to full-on glam at Charleston Fashion Week.

          Last Thursday, there were far more fashionistas in Blue Hand Home than home furnishings.  In celebration of the annual FASHION FIX Spring Fashion Preview presented by Wilmington Dermatology Center, Tracy and Arnie transferred couches, dining tables, textured rugs and a menagerie of interior accents to a home they are staging to make room for a runway and a variety of pop-up shops from Wilmington’s favorite boutiques and designers.   For the next several weeks, I will share with you the Top 10 Trends for Spring we previewed that evening, starting with NEON worn to perfection by model Ozlem Nichols.

SG *FASHION FIX* – SHOP LOCAL: Getting my Guess Jeans + Indie Pop-Up Shop Finds
  Style Girl Jess James | Fashion Fix       Last Saturday, it was all about shopping local. Heading to Projekte’s first annual indie pop-up shop, I decided to wear the Guess snakeskin jeans – straight out of the 90’s – that I picked up at A Second Time Around. Can I tell you how badly I coveted a pair of Guess jeans when I was in middle school? I can remember Chrissy Borton, who was at least a freshman and wore painted-on Guess jeans almost daily, swinging her long blond ponytail and looking over her shoulder towards the back of the schoolbus...

SG *FASHION FIX* – See What Look Linger Love is Bringing to Style Swap Charleston!
  Style Girl Jess James | Fashion Fix     Chassity Aull Evans of Look Linger Love + the J.Crew espadrilles she is bringing to Style Swap!   Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of enjoying a honey latte with Style Swap Charleston co-hostess Chassity Aull Evans of must-read blog Look Linger Love. Not only is her blog a Pinterest junkies paradise, but apparently she also has great taste in music (I ran into her at the Avett Brothers concert two nights prior).
