• 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.

  • 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...
