• Giving style to art

    As a one-time college art major, I understand the style of creations that people consider to be art – from pottery, sculpture, paintings, music, etc.  – whether I agree or not. 

    It’s true that some art looks like you gave paints and a paint brush to a 3-year-old or better yet, strapped a paint brush to a dog’s tail. But it sells for a whole lot more.

    There’s music I don’t care for and some pottery that resembles a sack of potatoes. No, that’s just a concrete piece I had to chisel while at Delta State. 

  • What's in His Bag?

    If you haven’t guessed by now, this month’s issue is dedicated to men (cue “Let’s Hear It for the Boy”). I asked Dapper Dozen alum Tyner Sullivan for his go-to essentials. I knew he had good taste, and I wasn’t wrong: He sent a list full of brands I personally love, and I think you guys would, too. Let’s take a look…

    1. Watch
    When a man gets dressed, he puts on a watch. I personally love the Unisex Timex Weekender Fairfield watch. $75

     

  • Explorations in Photography

     Authentic storytelling doesn’t always need direction. For this year’s Photography feature, we let the professionals take the reins. We supplied a starting point with a list of themes and then allowed the artists to construct their own narratives. What we were given is a series of short vignettes that tell us not only about the theme chosen, but also the photographers themselves.

  • What's in my bag?

    With football season in full swing, it’s time to put away your everyday handbag, and break out the clear one. Shoutout to Eve Marie’s boutqiue here in Hattiesburg for helping me find the perfect one! So, what are some of my game day essentials?

    Let’s start here...

    1. PEN AND PAPER
    Yes, I carry a notebook and pen with me wherever I go. I’m an Art Director, so when inspiration hits, I am reaching in my bag and grabbing for these little beauties. I’m partial to Rifle Paper Co. and their designs. You can purchase yours at riflepaperco.com for $15

  • A Class Act

    There are those one-word names that when mentioned are instantly recognizable, no matter who or what you’re talking about, whether worldwide or locally – Beyonce, Liberace, Ward’s, Sacks, Stricks.

    Hattiesburg was home to its own one-word wonder back in the day – Waldoff’s.

    For 70 years, the department store started by a Jewish immigrant from the Ukraine was a favorite of many.

  • Southern Dressing....New York Style

    I remember when I first picked up my life and made the great migration from New York City to South Mississippi. I packed up my apartment and headed into unknown (but exciting) territory. I had never been to Mississippi and boy, did I have a lot to learn. One thing that I discovered very quickly – humidity. I had no use for my dozens of coats or collection of cashmere sweaters and snow boots that I had curated through the years working in the fashion industry. Don't get me wrong - I was happy to trade in the snow and the slush for fun in the sun.
