Shop Talk: Celebrating 20 years with Airlie Moon
Julie Robinson, owner of Airlie Moon, at Airlie Moon’s 20th birthday party last night Sometimes it’s the businesses who have been around the longest that tend to slip to the back of your mind, but that’s not the case with Airlie Moon. Even after 20 years in Wilmington, a mere glimpse of their sea glass hued treasures through their storefront window at Lumina Station is enough to make your heart flutter. When I asked owner Julie Robinson what it feels like to reach the 20-year benchmark the day before the store’s 20th birthday party (last night), she admits, “Surprising! Not...

Style Girl shares one of her favorite secret vintage haunts
One of my favorite vintage haunts on Castle Street I’m going to let you in on a secret. Some of you may already be in-the-know but I have a feeling quite a few of my lovely readers have yet to discover Francine’s Castle & Cottage Antiques on Castle Street. I found my way into Francine and her husband Jim’s first shop on Castle Street shortly after I moved to Wilmington nine years ago. I recognized right away that we shared a common bond – a nostalgia and love for treasures from the past. Francine inside her shop, Castle & Cottage...

Layer Necklaces with Mima tomorrow for your own Statement Look
Mima Trunk Show this Saturday at Ziabird I first discovered “Mima” at Ziabird at Lumina Station when I was selecting jewelry for actress Elizabeth Mitchell’s (Lost, Revolution) cover shoot last year for Brink Magazine. The editor wanted her to have a cool, effortless look and the long, languid Mima gold strands set the tone perfectly with her crisp white blouse. I layered orange carnelian gemstones and leather with a nod to the bohemian countered with an edgy, gold dagger necklace. Ziabird owner Lynn Manock, who is hosting a special Mima trunk show tomorrow (Saturday June 14), says she first met...

Birthday Memories + Party for Plunkett photos
BIRTHDAY GIRL I decided I’d take it easy this week with my newsletter since this Thursday newsletter night happened to be my birthday. Growing up, birthdays were always a magical day with the exciting potential for celebration and surprise. Even for my most bashful friends, I always made a point to hide birthday cards in their lockers and whisper to the teacher before class alerting them that a “Happy Birthday” serenade should be added to the syllabus. In high school, even though Joel and I went to school almost four hours away and in different states, I would dress up...

The Real Deal: Making Tintype Magic + NYE Plans at Manna!
Tintype portrait of our favorite Wilmywood Starlet by Harry Taylor / Hair: Steven Ward Styling: Jess James / Makeup: Garnett Graham Instead of focusing on Christmas craziness, I thought we would look ahead to the New Year and make plans to celebrate together. Considering my face was drenched in tears after taking a peek at my personal Year in Review on Facebook, I will take the advice of my old friend Bill McIlwain with a smile, “Onward, Upward.” 2014, let’s do this. In planning for Manna’s upcoming New Year’s Eve bash with a 1940’s theme (click HERE to get your...

Coats + Cucalorus: What to Watch, What to Wear + FrockTales!
Cucalorus inspired photo shoot for Style Girl Vintage Photos: Melissa Hebert   Today I spent the greater part of my day at the Italian Gourmet Coffee Shop downtown. I don’t usually work in public since I am so easily distracted. Halfway into my latest Style Girl Vintage listing on Etsy, I hear one of the guys hanging out across the room, “Hey, she looks like a film industry type. Are you going to Cucalorus? What are you going to see? And, do you know how you go about being an extra?” I am definitely not the authority on extra work...

Interview with MAD MEN Costume Designer Janie Bryant!
Although MAD MEN Season 6 is set in the late 60’s, each character maintains their own signature style developed by Costume Designer Janie Bryant over the past several seasons. Don sticks to his classic suits and striped ties while Joan continues to give new meaning to the “wiggle” dress. Peggy is putting some polish to her mod skirt suits and adding a bit of panache with neck ties and berets while Megan and Harry Crane (MAD MEN’s most fashion-forward characters) really bring a touch of the 70’s with graphic prints, go go boots, mini skirts, bell bottoms and even a...
