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* – 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...

              Wilmington-based Jewelry Designer Savannah Watson wearing a variety of pieces from her newly-launched jewelry collection, Merewif I first met Savannah via Facebook. A Wilmington native with an emerging career in fashion, she was contemplating making the move back home from LA, and looking for advice. We all know the catch to living in Wilmington. It’s a beautiful place to live, but a hard place to make a living.   Several months later, we met at one of my Fashion Preview events. Savannah happened to be in town and decided to get a firsthand look at the Wilmington fashion community.

SG *FASHION FIX* Style Girl Photo Shoot + Social Chic from Founders Gala
    Style Girl Jess James | Fashion Fix       Since the Style Girl Vintage Collection now has a home both downtown at aMuse Artisanal Finery (19 South 2nd Street) and at Tickled Pink at Lumina Station, my intern (sometimes referred to as Brad to my Rachel) Michael Deininger-Bell texted me over the holidays, “Pleasssse can we take some pictures?” So, the Style Girl / FASHION FIX team (Michael, a talented emerging photographer and Juliana, my trusted do-it-all girl Friday) invaded Tayloe Gray’s new office space downtown, which was once akin to a Madame Tussaud’s take on the African safari now in transition from former...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Fashion Sense vs. Fashion 2 Cents – Dad Weighs In…
    Style Girl Jess James | Fashion Fix       Even if you’ve never met my dad, chances are if we’re friends on Facebook, you may have noticed a reliable “Dave James like this” under a variety of my posts.

A self-professed “Daddy’s girl,” my dad and I agree on a few key points – that...
