Sharing a personal 4th of July memory + MAD MEN, Hippie Ball Photos
I may be practicing my Miss America wave here, but I promise you I have never been a pageant girl. This photo was taken at the 4th of July parade in my hometown of Woodstown, NJ the summer of my senior year of high school. Since I was Woodstown’s Prom Queen, I was among several “queens” from the county displayed on vintage cars towards the end of the parade. This particular 4th of July is one of my favorite Independence Day memories. It could have been because it was my senior year and I had the chance to sort of...

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...

SG *FASHION FIX* Floral Fixation + Expert tips on How to Protect Your Skin
Naturally, florals bloom into our wardrobe each spring and summer along with pastels and diaphanous fabrics. But this season there seems to be a little extra pollen in the air, resulting in a bit of a frenzied floral fixation. It's all about finding a floral that strikes your fancy.

SG *FASHION FIX* – 2012 Magic Moments: Looking Back Before Moving Ahead
      It’s been an incredibly difficult past few weeks losing our precious dog Buster and now my beloved Nana.  I have not yet embraced moving forward into 2013 so I thought I might get inspired by first taking a look back at some of 2012’s more magical moments. Here’s hoping for brighter days. Thank you for your prayers and comforting words. xo, Jess   One of my favorite portraits of Nana from the 1940’s         2nd Annual Great Gatsby Gala     Held at The City Club  and presented this year by DreamCarSource.com this night of Jazz Age...

          Style Girl’s impromptu photo shoot with Photographer Eric von Bargen at Beanie + Cecil featuring the beloved green Helmut Lang dress   A few weeks back, I was contacted by the city of Wilmington’s marketing firm The Brandon Agency, about participating in a promotional tourism video – focused primarily on why I love shopping in the greater Wilmington area.   Not knowing they had a hair/makeup artist on set, I went ahead and made appointments with my hair stylist Cheryl Kent of Ward Hair Salon and makeup artist Amy Kennison of MAC Cosmetics.   While driving to Lumina Station for the...
