Arrogantly Shabby, In The Fashion Sense


If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you likely saw the pics I posted from my recent trip to Pawleys Island where I was a speaker at the Ladies Garden Party Luncheon to benefit the Pawleys Island Festival of Music and Art.  Sasee Magazine is a women's lifestyle magazine serving the Grand Strand from Myrtle Beach to Charleston.  Just south of the center is where you will find Pawleys Island.  June is Sasee's fashion guide month, and so I was absolutely tickled when they said they wanted to write a story about my experience as a wardrobe stylist.  You may read it here.  I've been vacationing at Pawleys Island my entire life, and my father being a born and bred South Carolina boy, I'm fortunate to know many locals of the area. The ladies at the luncheon were so kind welcoming me into the social circle of their world.  I feel that much more connected to the little town who, with pride, holds tight to their trademark, Arrogantly Shabby.  If you've been to Pawleys, you know.  The topography, peacefulness and mentality are fantastic beyond measure. If we are making an analogy to one's personal style of dress, there is no need for piling on the accessories here. Pawleys Island is sheer downplayed sophistication.
