• The second annual Best of the Pine Belt Best Dressed

    Here we are again. The Best of the Pine Belt Awards Show Best Dressed list. That was a mouthful. I’ll work on a better name before 2018 rolls around.

  • Pucker up

    I am going to switch gears this month. There is one thing that goes hand in hand with fashion that I have never written about – makeup. We live in it, just like our clothes. It’s something that a lot of us don’t leave the house without putting on, at least in some capacity. I think it deserves some attention, so here goes nothing...

  • Senior Style

    Graduation is an exciting time. Although mine was many (many) years ago, I still remember the feeling I got when I put on my cap and gown for the first time. I don’t believe there is another rite of passage that exists that carries as much weight as high school graduation. You are growing up, leaving home and embarking on the rest of your life outside of your parents’ safety net. It is scary, fun and intimidating all at once.

    And what rite of passage would be complete without a photo to document it?

  • Beauty in simplicity

    Spring is my favorite time of year for fashion. As much as I love my winter clothes, there is something so refreshing about exchanging my heavy sweaters and boots for light, airy fabrics and strappy sandals. Plus, the colors evoke such a sense of happiness. I love seeing the boutique windows adorned with all of the new spring colors.

  • Damsel in Denim

    When I sat down to write my article for this month, I started with absolutely no inspiration. I stared at my closet, I people-watched at a baseball game, and I even watched “The Devil Wears Prada” in hopes a light bulb would go off in my head. All I got from those activities was a sunburn from the baseball game and a terrible case of closet envy from the Anne Hathaway makeover scene in the movie. Seriously, if anyone knows where I can find that emerald green coat with the leopard print trim, call me immediately.

  • 27 (minus 20) Dresses

    If you have ever been a bridesmaid in a wedding, you can sympathize with the universal fear of bridesmaids everywhere – what will the dress look like?

    As we graciously accept the honor of standing up with our friend on her special day, we are secretly cringing on the inside at the thought of cheap, itchy satin, figure-hiding silhouettes and dyed shoes that perfectly match a shade of dress you would never wear in real life. But, are we freaking out for nothing? Most times, yes.

  • Party in your birthday suit

    Happy New Year, fashionistas! January is a time for fresh starts and resolutions, but more importantly, it is my birth month. As anyone with a January birthday knows, it is not the best time to be born. My birthday seems to always fall on the coldest day of the year, so finding party locations as a child was quite a feat. I had a lot of parties at the roller skating rink.

  • Christmas is coming

    Christmas is my favorite time of year, not because of the gifts, but because of the traditions that have been passed down through my family. From the plethora of Santa Claus figurines on my mantel that belonged to my mother, to the Advent calendar with a movable mouse that my brothers and I fought over as kids, my house is covered in tradition during the holidays.

  • Skinnies, scarves, and socks, oh my!

    Every year, when my family gathers around the table for Thanksgiving dinner, we go around and everyone says at least one thing they are thankful for. Our answers are always fairly predictable – our family, parents, children, the food on the table – the basics. Even though the answers never change, we continue the discussion year after year. Although we moan and groan over our cheesy little tradition, the underlying theme is not lost on us – we all have something to be thankful for, and we are lucky to have those things.

  • Freshman Follies

    College is an interesting time.  After 18 years of being taken care of and having someone watching their every move, college students are suddenly thrown headfirst into independence.  Not only do they have to deal with a new school, new living situation and new friends, but they are also expected to learn and mature in the midst of all of the chaos. With so many new things being thrown at them at once, it is no surprise that fashion often gets put on the backburner while they adjust.
