  • About the Shoot: Miskelly Furniture

    While it may appear this issue’s fashion photos were made inside a luxurious Pine Belt home, they were actually made inside the Hub City’s newest furniture retailer – Miskelly’s.

    In the early days of its existence in the old Gander Mountain building at Westover Crossing in Hattiesburg and before its incredible grand opening extravaganza, Miskelly’s gave Signature the run of its brand new 70,000-square-foot facility. It was difficult to decide where to shoot first as there were so many incredible options and vignettes from which our photographers could choose.

  • Doggone Good Time: Dis & Dem

    First impressions are important. You never get a second chance to make a first impression. In a sea of restaurants off Highway 98, in what I like to call “retail-ville,” there is a place I’ve always said I would try, but had yet to finally check it out. Well, I’m happy to report that I have finally eaten at Dis & Dem, and I’m kicking myself for not trying it sooner.
