    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...

  • Giust, Thomley create FS art

    One of the highlights each year at FestivalSouth is the art created specifically for the annual event.

    Hattiesburg artist Amy Giust, who is best known for her abstracts, has been a part of the festival since its inception, creating a collection of artwork.

  • 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.

  • MOD: The creation and ongoing evolution

    "Fashion is what one wears oneself. What is unfashionable is what other people wear." - Oscar Wilde

    Mod Music and Mod Culture are simply inseparable. Like the twisted double helix which contains all of our necessary information, the ongoing traits and their continuing combination and mutation continue to recreate a style that is uniquely individual even as you see everyone trying to imitate it.

  • Pine Belt record label promotes talent

    A deal with the devil is not a conversation you’re likely to hear in polite company. In fact, it’s probably not a conversation you’re going to hear in any type company. That is, unless you’re a musician. And then you’re all over it. You’ll talk about it to just about anyone who is willing to listen and more than likely, try and get them to make the same sweet deal… the same sweet deal.
