Tranforming Junk to Gems for Habitat for Humanity
Interior Designer Mary Jo Shipman of Shipman Design Group, 1st place winner at Habitat for Humanity’s Upscale Resale event A few weekends ago, Joel and I attended the Preview Party for Habitat for Humanity’s 2nd annual Upscale Resale weekend long event. My friend Pat Kusek of Kusek Financial Group visited me at the first annual Upscale Resale when my vintage collection was a part of Birds of a Feather’s booth last year and immediately recognized the event’s connection to her own business. As this year’s presenting sponsor, Pat says, “Habitat has been devoted to building simple, decent and affordable housing...

Sharing my Checklist for my 8th Charleston Fashion Week
2013 Winning Emerging Designer Afriyie’s show kicking off the first night at Charleston Fashion Week 2014. (Photo: Leigh Moose of Side Yard Studios) You might be hard pressed to find another person (besides this Style Girl) who has attended every night at Charleston Fashion Week since its inception eight years ago (ok, MAYBE Chelsie Ravenell. But, that’s a maybe.) Back then, guests were more likely to wear a gingham sundress than Gucci and a”blog” was just a buzz word, perhaps a passing phase for people who liked to spend a little too much time in front of their computers. My,...
Model for the Day: The Non-Nude Photo Shoot with Victor
Photo Shoot with Photographer Victor Giarrusso Hair: Elizabeth Peterson / Makeup: Tess Wheatley Cash of Blush My parents will swear I never met a camera I didn’t like. They said I used to “turn it on” whenever there was a camera in the room, always dialing in the next pose. And for as long as I can remember, I was the girl who always toted a camera around documenting school trips, dances, pep rallies and without fail – cute boys, strangers included. But, I took a bit of a hiatus as a shutterbug right around the time my sister took...
Year in Review, Hello, 2015 and Love for Swifty
In the holidaze leading up to New Year’s day, I stumbled across this lovely postcard (above) from Cape Fear Antiques. It’s the only shop of interest I can easily walk to from my house so every so often I take a peek at their jewelry cases, carefully taking in each bejeweled brooch, antique belt buckle and clip-on earrings you could find in Betty Draper’s jewelry box, always in search of an elusive deco trinket. I most recently discovered a 1920’s era bracelet with gold deco detailing. The only clue of its origin – a mysterious “C High School” printed in...

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...
