Summer's Chicest Fashions

For a year now I have looked forward to each month’s opportunity to share my inherited love of fashion with my friends at the beach. Though I reside in Charlotte, North Carolina, with my family, sharing my personal experience and insatiable love of great style with those of you in the Grand Strand grants me […]

What It's Like To Be On The Pages Of A Magazine

I can’t tell you how much I love my writing post here at Sasee. I’ve written for several magazines over the past few years since I began professional pursuit of my passion for fashion, and I can honestly say that Sasee has been my favorite to date. I try to think of the reason why, […]

Shop Smart and Dress One of a Kind

As the Granddaughter and Great Granddaughter of style-setting department store clothing buyers from a bygone era, I was exposed to, and learned about, well made clothes from a very early age.

Identifying Your Signature Style: Mommy Chic

Someone please tell me I am not alone. I’m married to a wonderful man, and I’m a Mom to two sweet, beautiful boys, each uniquely precocious in their own ways. I’ve got a roof over my head, shoes on my feet and a 12-year-old, sweet, beautiful, yellow lab named Macy. Don’t get me wrong, my […]

Something about the holidays […]

Timeless Classic Style

Timeless Classic Style

It’s almost dinner time for the adults. My littlest son, tanned and all smiles, walks clumsily toward me down the boardwalk. In one hand he brings me my old Ray-Ban sunglasses case from the steps leading to the beach, and in the other, a rainbow Popsicle drips down his arm. He is dressed in wide […]

The Fashion of Friendships

The Fashion of Friendships

I find the topic of friendships perfect for my first time contributing to Sasee. After all, it was by way of a new friendship that I got here! I’ve been vacationing at Pawleys Island for as long as I can remember, always working in visits with friends of my parents and a few island natives […]
