Closet Confessions returns! Vintage Chanel for less? For REAL
The first time I debuted a Closet Confessions video was three years ago when I interviewed my 92-year-old Nana dressed in one of her favorite yellow Butte Knit suits (Click HERE to watch). So many people to this day ask where my love for fashion stems from.

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...

SG *FASHION FIX* – Postcard from Colorado + Festival-Approved Fashion
          Enjoying the view in Colorado  I’m pretty certain I haven’t seen the Colorado rockies since I was on the verge of adolescence and certainly have not survived (ahem, taken) a vacation with my parents since I lived under their roof. So, I figured we might be “right on time” for both when my parents invited Joel and I to join them for their second summer at the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons, Colorado.
