• 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.

  • 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.
