Letter from the


I find it fitting that my last issue of CLUTCH (Cue tears! Violin music!) coincides with our celebration of Tallahassee culture. Spending the past three years at Florida State and through my work with CLUTCH, I’ve come to discover all that Tallahassee has to offer beyond campus: tempting eateries, exciting nightlife, boutiques to please every shopper’s delight and an endless array of local artists. As always, the production of CLUTCH was dependant upon the generosity of the community lending its clothing, services and talent. Additionally, the content of this issue spotlights the area’s cultural offerings. Features like “Meals on Wheels,” “Haute Dogs” and “Taste Tallahassee” serve as a guide to satisfying your cravings—locally, of course. We also seek advice (fashion, beauty, beer–you name it) from community experts and delve into the lives of local celebrities. We recognize, however, that a cultured lifestyle may carry you beyond the borders of Tallahassee. For this reason, we’ve also crafted articles to prepare you for your travels: packing tips, destination suggestions and international style inspiration. While exploring these local landmarks has been a thrill, some of my dearest Tallahassee memories were made in the production of CLUTCH, including spells of late-night editing delirium. I’m honored to have been a part of such an ambitious project with the best team I could ask for. I look forward to following the bright future of CLUTCH and its team!



Many Thanks, Ashley Wilson

UnbeWeaveable Detangling the mysteries of hair extensions by Dave Panton

“Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down thy fine hair,” a debonair prince yells to an ethereal captive, hidden high in her towered prison. Lonely for so long, the naïve girl throws down her flowing locks and the prince proceeds to climb up… and, well, the rest is history. This Brothers Grimm fairytale, in agreement with Willow Smith, demonstrates a woman’s eternal desire to whip her hair back and forth. But the question remains: how? Ladies, the answer is this: Weave. Without the proper education, things can get a little hairy. However, with some general knowledge, it is clear how simple taking your hair to great lengths can be. At the root of understanding extensions is the quality of their construction, which is in direct correlation to how the hair will perform. As a man-made fiber, synthetic hair extensions are at the primary level of hair extensions. The biggest concern with synthetic hair is the low versatility found within: No heat can be applied to synthetic hair, making curling, straightening and restyling nearly impossible. Also, the synthetic nature of the extension makes it difficult to blend. It moves differently, produces a different sheen and frequently becomes matted. For these reasons, it is used mainly for braiding. Human hair extensions are constructed of, as the name suggests, actual human hair. The cuticle layer of the hair defines the quality of this extension. This outermost lay-


er produces shine and provides protection. It is constructed of scales that look much like the roof of a house. The more compact and smooth the cuticle layer of the hair, the more shine and better quality. After choosing the appropriate fiber content of your hair extension, you must decide your method of attachment. Hair extensions can be sectioned into two categories: weft hair and keratin-tipped hair. Wefts are single strands of hair that have been sewn into a track, making a strip of hair. Weft is the most known form of extensions and can be used in a variety of situations, the most permanent being a sew-in. The natural hair is braided into a cornrow and then the weft of hair is sewn in with a needle and thread. This needs to be rebalanced, or unbraided, frequently. Keratin-tipped hair extensions are clumps of hair that have a keratin protein bead at the top that is bonded to a tiny section of the natural hair with a specialized heating tool. This provides a very natural hair extension with movement and unlimited styling options, and is nearly undetectable to the untrained eye. As we braid all the loose ends together, it is simple to see how hair extensions can pump up the volume in your life. Next time you’re having your Britney moment, don’t get your coifs all a muss; your options are truly unbeweaveable.

In recent seasons, wellpolished nails have become as much of a statement-maker as the latest handbags or shoes. As we look to the runway shows and beauty giants’ collections for the latest and greatest in fingernail fashion, this fall is no different.

Au Naturale:

Nude nails are still being seen at major fashion shows, so if you haven’t yet picked up a flesh-toned polish, now is your chance! Essie offers a variety of buff shades and the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure collection has a polish to match any skin tone.

Rich Metallics:

Looking for a little more sparkle? Let your tips shine with a coat of liquid metal. Revlon’s fall collection will have you drooling over gorgeous gold and shimmering gunmetal shades. Chanel’s green-to-gold shade shifter, “Peridot,” is perfect for the changing seasons, while their tarnished silver sparkler, “Graphite,” is sure to complete any holiday party ensemble.

Dusty Chic:

Muted shades are surprisingly bold this season. OPI’s “Touring America” Fall 2011 collection includes fall must-haves like olive green, grey and navy that compliment utilitarian styles. To add an edgy touch to ladylike looks, Essie’s lineup offers warmer shades like deep rust, light khaki and taupe.

Works of Art:

Perfect for when monotone polish just isn’t enough, nail art has become wildly popular. Sophisticated and subtle, updated French and moon manicures were seen all over the fall runway. If you really want your nails to make a statement, the new Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail polish strips are an easy way to get over-the-top nail art in a flash. 21

Leave the bulk to your wardrobe this winter—Just because the temperature is dipping and the layers are adding doesn’t give reason to let yourself go. With global warming and Tallahassee’s erratic weather patterns, it will be scorching once again in the blink of an eye. As the season changes, switch up your workout, too! Get ripped and ready for swimsuit season while you can still hide under your puffer jackets. Rather than spending mundane afternoons slaving to the treadmill, try the hot craze that will really get you sweating. Try Sweat Therapy Fitness. Sweat Therapy Fitness is a studio that takes

Feeling a little dull, lifeless and limp lately? If there is a single theme that is spotted on every magazine page, in nearly every designer’s campaign this season, it’s all about some tease! Pumping up the volume in your hair is sure to keep your nights scorching, even as we fall into brisk climates. Adding a little lift is simple to do, but to keep your look vampy vixen rather than a rat’s nest, let the following tips guide you. First, some surprising news: the dirtier your hair, the better. Hair that has skipped a few shampoos will have more grit and grip. (If your hair is freshly shampooed, spritz some hairspray at your root.) First, section your hair in a horseshoe parting at the parietal ridge, or where your head starts to round out, in laymen’s terms. This section is where you will tease: Acquire the necessary tools. A teasing brush works best, but any toothed item works, as well: brush, comb, fork (in dire situations. Take a small subsection, about 1” x 3”, and over-direct the hair forward. With the section past a 90° angle, begin teasing. Starting in the back of the subsection, tease in a c-shaped motion and backcomb the hair three times. Then move to the front of the subsection and lock the tease; push the tease down to compact it closer to the root, giving supreme lift. Repeat as many times as necessary, then move on to the next section. A key tip to remember: the bigger, the better. Also, don’t worry if it looks a little nesty at this point; you’ll take care of that next. After finishing the entire horseshoe section, it’s time to smooth things out. Using your brush, gently smooth out the top layer and adjust the height. Go out and get to teasing… guys that is.

Virgo The feminine Virgo represents change between seasons, from summer to fall. The soft Virgo bears tremendous passion, but tends to be na誰ve and shy. Soft, glamour waves, pinned half-up with volume in the crown, convey her feminine way, while a deep smolder under the eye expresses her passion. 28

Jason Wu for Target

As the dust just barely settled from the Missoni for Target frenzy, Target quickly announced that they are collaborating with Jason Wu to create a limited edition collection. His concept is to bring consumers clothing that is convertible from day to night. You can expect to see romantic lace, bright floral and feline-inspired prints in women’s clothing and accessories. Mark your calendar for the arrival of affordable femme, February 2012!

H&M Conscious Collection Fall 2011 Swedish retailer, H&M is known for providing fast-fashion to consumers at a reasonable price. Not only are they aware of current trends in fashion, but they also follow trends in green living in their Conscious Collection. The line consists entirely of garments made with organic cotton, as well as recycled wool and organic hemp fibers. The line was inspired by Swedish folklore, with rich floral patterns and ladylike dresses. Eco-friendly and wallet-friendly, what could be better?

Karl Lagerfeld to Produce Perfume

Karl Lagerfeld is most famously known for being Creative Director of Chanel. Many individuals adore his designs, follow his unique style and look forward to the newest innovation up his sleeve. Finally, you can smell like him! His next venture is a namesake fragrance. KarlĂŠidoscope features floral tones, with a mix of violet and freesia. Aside from the bold aroma, Karl Lagerfeld very cleverly packaged the perfume as a working kaleidoscope! You can find this one-of-a-kind scent exclusively at Sephora.

With the potential to influence an emotion, envelope a concept, and convey an idea, color is—in one word—powerful. The capacity to completely alter a look in everything from a runway collection to an interior-decorating concept is compelling and useful for all levels of product interaction, all the way from the designers to the consumers who purchase and pair pieces together. This season Pantone, the world’s color development innovators, has unveiled the newest additions to the catalog of alreadyestablished colors. Pantone has released 175 new colors that encompass all areas of the color spectrum, making for a distinct array of choices. In accordance with the trending colors for this season, the most dominant color additions can be found in such hues as green, purple, brown, and orange. Pantone consistently uses unique differentiating names when identifying

the colors. The names of the new 175 are certainly no exception to this standard. The orange family welcomes new additions toting names such as “Tangerine Tango,” “Cinnamon Stick,” and “Marmalade.” The brown hues being welcomed are elemental of an intense dark brown, some fittingly named “Ganache” and “Chocolate Torte.” The green family—a jewel tone family very important for this season—embraces a slightly larger set of additions than most, given the rising status of the color set. The newest green colors are branded with names such as “Jolly Green,” “Belgian Block,” and “Climbing Ivy.” All colors in the spectrum, especially the ones identified above, have unique names and deeprooted developed color, making the recent additions welcomed by all segments of the color spectrum. Pantone’s color development is one of the many innovations rocking the fashion industry and all related aspects of creative culture.

It’s that time of year when the thought of stepping outside is so painful that we wish our clothes were insulated with heaters. Now is the best time to pile on the layers and use some of those summertime staples usually pushed to the back of our closets. Tights, leggings, fitted long sleeve tees, and sweaters are the key players in this layer game. Layer free-flowing and oversized garments on top of tight-fitting pieces. (Wearing a fitted garment as a bottom layer is a simple way to maintain your body heat!) Try to get creative with your layering. Summer’s cute cut-off shorts can still be worn over tights and a loose tank can be thrown over a long sleeve shirt. Layering allows you to incorporate multiple colors and textures in one outfit. Having sleeves poke out of sweaters and socks stick out of boots creates an interesting tiered effect. Small pops of colors are all you need to make your outfit more fun (and a pair of socks keeps your wallet thick and your toes toasty.) Here are two layered looks for fall that will help you get through Tallahassee’s temperatures.

Most people have heard the phrase “quality over quantity.” However, many of us struggle with this concept because one of the primary issues concerning the goal of the ever-growing closet is money. Alternative resources for shopping like Goodwill, Etsy, eBay and thrift stores are the perfect solutions. There is no doubt that many of us have been offered these ideas before, but how many of us have actually tried it?

The following tips will put you well on your way to mastering the art of the find: Only explore these sites and stores if you are feeling patient. You have to be willing to spend a lot of time looking. It’s likely that you will come across a dozen misses before finding that one hit.

Tailoring is always an option. Don’t veto a piece just because it’s not a perfect fit. Many items can be transformed (inexpensively!) with simple tailoring.

Do Not be deterred by sizes. Many sizes labeled years ago are not consistent with today’s sizes. Most of the sizes were actually much smaller, so you will typically wear a bigger size in vintage or thrifted clothing.

Get friendly with your washing machine. Many people are hesitant to wear preowned clothing due its unknown origin. Goodwill and other thrift stores inspect their clothing before putting it out for sale, but throwing your buy in the wash before wear wouldn’t hurt either.

Trendy Travelista

join the (mile) high-fashion club

Whether traveling on a short jet set or a long red-eye flight, there is always an outfit both trendy and comfortable to throw together before take-off. When looking to dress comfortably on a flight, resorting to sweatpants is a mistake made far too often. There are plenty of ways to incorporate comfort in style, leaving no reason to dress inappropriately at the airport. One of the most comfortable garments a girl can own is a maxi dress. You could even take advantage of the new maxi skirt trend by pairing one with a soft cotton v-neck and a pretty cardigan. Finish it off with some great accessories and a pair of flat boots and you’re ready to go—chic and cozy.


Dressing it up in the airport can also be done effortlessly. Start the look off with a great pair of stretchy skinnies. If you’re feeling daring, try them in a bold color. On top, an oversized poncho over a fitted tee adds flow and ease to your look. Ultimately, the key to this outfit lies in the shoes. When looking for comfort in a heel, go for the wedge. They’re stylish, easy to walk in and virtually pain-free. Put together this trendy get-up and you’ll be ready to start your vacation once the plane lands. Keep these tips in mind before take off and you will surely be a hit!

With the Spriggs

Q. What sets Spriggs apart from other boutiques? A. We stay true to our roots, we don’t jump around trying to be everything to everybody. We’re your everyday casual, yet chic. Price point and customer service are equally important as the collections themselves. Q. How did Spriggs get it’s start? A. A shopping problem! I decided to turn a serious fault into a livelihood. I’m a sucker for dresses, a great white tee shirt and cocktail rings, an obsession you’ll see play out at all of our stores. I work really hard to find beautiful things that don’t cost a fortune. You can wear a 16 dollar tee shirt, with a 25 dollar necklace and look like a million bucks. I try to create collections that are relevant to the current trends without going overboard. Q. What brands are you stocking? A. We don’t label chase ever, we have a few that we proudly stock like Young Fabulous & Broke, Lucky Brand apparel-footwear-handbags and accessories, LA made tees and dresses, but honestly we sell more smaller design house dresses under 59 bucks than anything. We get new shipments every Thursday and Friday, so our girls knows she can find new goodies weekly. Style really is how you wear your garments, not how much you spend on them. Q. Any specific trends we’ll spot this season at Spriggs? A. There really is, loving the wide leg pants, feminine silky blouses, the colorful ethnic inspired ponchos, leather bags and boots, and ballet flats. I love that the 70’s is inspiring so many designers. Lucky Brand does the whole laid back bohemian luxe better than anybody for the price point. Their woven’s and knit sweaters, leathers and accessories are simply delicious this season, very cool detailing.

Going All Out

making the most of your Tallahassee nightwear by Molly McKenna and Ashley Wilson photos by Karen Aplin

Nightclubs are dark and crowded, yes, but the critical flash of the Nightlife Unleashed cameras is always just around the corner. You have enough to worry about when partying (Who’s going? Where’s Doug? What do we do with this tiger?) so CLUTCH has compiled a guide to bear some of this burden. Here, we provide inspiration for fitting into the distinct look of three Tallahassee favorites:

the engine room


Rule #1 at this Railroad Ave. venue is no heels. Luckily, this will allow you to dance comfortably at visiting artist shows or weekly dance party, Menace Beach. Top off your flats with casual cut-offs and a lightweight blouse (feel free to go sheer.)

If you’re in the mood for a two-step (and really, when aren’t you?) go country in a bright dress and cowboy boots. If you want to ride the mechanical bull, plan ahead—wear shorts, instead.


Gather up the gals for ladies’ night every Friday. There’s sure to be a crowd, so you’ll want to stand out in your party pants (or shorts.)

For the beer novice, choosing an ale or lager can seem pretty intimidating. There are hundreds of styles available and sometimes finding the right one can be a challenge. Here’s a simple guide with advice from our local experts at The Mid-Town Filling Station, Alexa Barket and Aubrey Young, that may help you find the right brew. Cheers! LAgers are the most common type of beer, made from malted barley and yeast that ferments at the top of the barrel. Three popular types are pale, pilsner, and dark. PALE Pale is the most popular style of lager, known for its mild hop taste and heavy carbonation. Examples: Stella Artois, Miller High Life, Busch Light Suggested Food Pairing: Try pairing a pale lager with spicy foods, fish, or lobster. DARK As the title suggests, this lager tends to be extra dark in color. In flavoring, they are a 50/50 blend of hop intensity and bitterness. Examples: Michelob Dark, Beck’s Dark Suggested Food Pairing: Hearty foods, like barbecued or smoked meats, go best with dark lagers. PILSNER Pilsner is the oldest type of lager. It is typically a transparent, gold color and is known for its hearty hops flavoring. Examples: Dos Equis, Pilsner Urquell Suggested Food Pairing: Best served with lighter foods like chicken, salad and salmon.


ALES ferment over a short time frame and at a warmer temperature than lagers. This process makes for a fruity, smoother tasting beer. PALE Pale ales can be recognized by their bronze or copper coloring and their distinct, hoppy bite. Examples: Michelob Pale Ale, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale Suggested Food Pairing: Great with a variety of foods, especially burgers. BROWN This ale is popular for its mixture of nutty, sweet, and slight hoppy tastes. It is a creamy ale with a low alcohol content. Examples: Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale, Newcastle Brown Ale Suggested Food Pairing: Roasted pork or smoked sausage are a perfect match for this ale. PORTER Porters are light and smooth in taste, with high alcohol content. Examples: Sierra Nevada Porter, Fuller’s London Porter Suggested Food Pairing: Terrific with roasted or smoked meats and blackened fish. STOUT Stouts are known for their dark, sometimes even opaque, color and rich, roasted flavor. They can be either robust and dry or sweet. Examples: Guinness Extra Stout, Beamish Stout Suggested Food Pairing: Classic with raw oysters.

From college students to business professionals, new visitors to regulars, The Mid-Town Filling Station has served all types of customers. When confused about what beer will work best for you, Aubrey’s advice is simple: ask your local bartender. “Any bartender should ask what type of beer the patron is usually fond of, then, based on its ingredients, recommend beers with similar qualities.” Alexa agrees, “When a patron is looking for a brew recommendation, they typically have some idea as to what flavors and tastes they prefer. However, they don’t know how or why a beer tastes that particular way. A local bartender is the perfect resource for the knowledge that will bridge that gap.” * for those of age, of course


Traveling to different countries while taking classes that immerse you in a cultural lifestyle‌ What could be better? Many students wonder what tips and guidelines to follow for where to go and what to do with such little time abroad. Here are some helpful hints: If you love outdoor activities: Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Wales. One of the most scenic and breathtaking environments in the United Kingdom. The landscape offers paths for walking and jogging, while the water offers coasterring, kayaking and surfing.

Fancy yourself the artsy type? Florence, Italy. The city of Florence is filled with museums and beautiful architecture from the Ponte Veccio to the Uffizi to the Statue of David. Each piazza’s center has its own meaningful past, promoting a historical 36 atmosphere.

Packing: the most stressful part of any vacation and the step that nearly makes you want to skip the trip altogether. It’s time to make packing the simplest aspect of any getaway. There are two types of packers. There’s the minimalist, who can fit a two-week vacation into a carry-on bag. We envy this person because she is the one who flies through the airport, doesn’t check her baggage and isn’t waiting

at the luggage carousel for what seems like an eternity. The second type of packer, found in most of us, is the person who compresses her whole life into five bags for a three day vacation and is lingering at the luggage carousel with a rolling cart, yet is still the one who seems to neglect the obvious (shoes, hairbrush, etc.) The objective of packing is to be prepared for all situations, while keeping

it light for travel. The key to maximizing the space in your bag is strategy. Always save your socks and underwear for last because you can always slip them into compact spaces at the end. Also, be conscious of things that are provided for you at your hotel. If they provide a blow dryer, leave yours at home. Always aim to leave some extra space in case you go shopping, which (let’s face it) is inevitable.

If you want to get in shape while having fun (not to mention, impressing your friends,) then hooping is for you! Even though the hula-hoop first gained popularity back in the late 1950’s, today’s hoop is much more than a childhood toy. Modern hoopers use heavier and larger diameter hoops and explore rotations beyond their hips. They’ve learned to

twirl with their fingers, arms, neck, chest, waist, thighs and even feet. Health enthusiasts now recognize hooping as a fun, practical outlet to full body fitness and wellness. The contemporary hooping movement is trendy amongst jam band festivals and, with the recent introduction of LED light hoops, the electronica and rave scene. Interested in joining the hooping culture? Luckily, making your own hoop is quick, creative and, most importantly, cheap! The best material to make a hoop with is 3/4” or 1” polyethylene piping. It can be found at irrigation supply stores as well as some Home Depot or Lowe’s stores. Using a PVC cutter, slice the pipe depending on your height (average guys 13’, gals 11’6”). Next, connect the two pipe ends with a plastic size-matching connector (sold at pipe stores) and soak the ends in hot water to help loosen them. After they’re connected, it’s time to get your creativity on by candycane striping colorful electrical tape around the hoop to your fancy. Voilà! —A beautiful hoop ready to start practicing tricks!

Stay Trendy, My Friends Colder weather is on its way here to Florida and that means it’s time to change up our wardrobes. Unfortunately, the Floridian winter isn’t as cut-and-dry as it is for our friends further up north. Instead of constant snowdays, the Florida winter can go from sunshine to overcast in what feels like a moment. Since the temperature can change drastically over just a few hours, planning an outfit gets to be a bit difficult. Thankfully, there are some great potential additions to our closets that can make this indecisive weather easier to bear. Chief among these is the simple cardigan. Open it, close it, put it on, take it off: The cardigan is ready to change just as quickly as the temperature—Not to mention it looks great! Try one in cotton when things are just starting to cool down, then grab one in wool (or a wool blend) when things really get chilly. Whether they’re four pockets or five, fine wale or wide—A pair of corduroy pants is another important item in a winter wardrobe. They will keep you safe from the chilly winter breeze, yet stay comfortable when Tallahassee decides it wants to warm things up. Even better, they’re usually available in a manner of great colors, so don’t be afraid to mix things up. A layer that few men take advantage of is the shirt jacket. It offers many of the same advantages of a cardigan, but with a more rugged workwear look. The best part is that you can use a shirt you already own. Put on that heavy denim workshirt or your favorite heavy flannel over a tee to keep it casual. You could even wear it over a shirt and tie for a refinedbut-rugged look that will keep you warm and toasty. With these few simple essentials, getting through the confusing Floridian winter in comfort is a breeze. Not to mention, they make great additions to any man’s closet. These staples are sure to never go out of style, so go ahead and enjoy the forthcoming winter.

Meals on Wheels An Intimate Portrait of Food Trucks by Ashley Frey

Over the past couple of years, food trucks have become a nationwide phenomenon and a true foodie’s love interest. Flooding the streets of New York City, Los Angeles and D.C., these meals on wheels are not your average hot-dog-from-a-cart food vendors. Gracing the menus of big-city food trucks are items such as BBQ pulled pork waffles, chicken and Thai basil dumplings, pumpkin cheesecake and even a brownie topped with bacon Nutella spread. The creative possibilities are endless and seem to have made a pit stop right here in Tallahassee. Food trucks make serving unique dishes a priority and will overcome the multiple obstacles to do just that. Not only does cooking in confined spaces provide a hindrance to the chefs, but, according to the owners of Cravings Truck, keeping the truck well-stocked also proves to be an issue. The owners of Lucy and Leo’s Cupcakery conquer this concern by pre-baking all cup98

cakes prior to boarding their truck. However, this is not so easy for other food trucks because most food is made to order. The owners of MoBi mention that keeping food trucks at a certain temperature, maintaining electricity and avoiding any accusation of being called a “Roach Coach” are some other hardships of food truck owners. Though many of these wandering restaurants have a loosely based weekly schedule, much of the intrigue of these food trucks is tracking them down by using social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. These merchants are eager to please customers around the city and refuse to stay in one place for too long. Tracking favorite food vendors has become a necessity to catching up to these culinary nomads and satisfying our food cravings. For citizens in the Tallahassee area, an easier way to find these trucks is at Cuzzy’s Key West Seafood Shack every Thursday when a variety of food trucks

gather for an event bluntly, though rightfully, named Food Truck Thursday. Family and friends gather on the corner of Tharpe Street for live music and meals from their desired food trucks. The first Food Truck Thursday was held on March 31, 2011 and persists as a local foodie fantasy, bringing a strong turnout every time. Just remember, rather than heading towards the drive-thru when hungry and on-the-go, check your Twitter and Facebook feeds for a delightfully satisfying meal instead.

Trucks like Capital Cuban Café, Cravings Truck, Lasang Pinoy, Lucy and Leo’s Cupcakery, Street Chefs and MoBi (short for “mobile bistro”) run this neighborhood, serving a range of cuisines including Cuban, Filipino, and traditional Southern food. Some menu favorites include: •Red velvet waffles from Cravings Truck •BBQ pork taco topped with macaroni and cheese from MoBi •Chocolate and peanut butter cupcake from Lucy and Leo’s.


Many have seen the fanciful inside of one-of-a-kind local vintage haven, AvantGarb, but what about the extensive personal collection of the owner? CLUTCH was given an exclusive look at the timeless treasury of Heather Wade’s wardrobe. What do you think people should wear more of? Hats! Which musical artists impress you style-wise, and why? The Velvet Underground, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The B-52’s, Brian Eno, and David Bowie—all theatrical and over-the-top. I gravitate towards people who do things that no one else has done. Why are vintage clothes magical?

They’re timeless and so much work went into each piece. I wish all my pieces could speak to me and tell me their stories.


Do you pick items for your store based on what you would wear, or do you think more about your customer? Both. It’s my duty and pleasure to think about my customer. I’m there to give them what they want, but at the same time have fun and buy things that I love, too. It’s a weird little balance. What do you think constitutes “good style?” I think that happens when people know themselves very well and when they know what they like. You may see something you love on a mannequin, but it may not look the same on you, but to know how to put it all together on your body means you know yourself and your style.

Where do you find unique pieces for yourself in town?

I go to The Other Side for little tchotchkes. That’s one of my favorite places to go and find myself a goody.

Do you like to buy expensive things or would you rather thrift for affordable treasures?

I’m a thrifter at heart. My mother brought me up that way; going to flea markets and thrift stores and finding good stuff for cheap! I never had the money to spend on expensive things, so that appealed to me.

Describe your style in three words. Eccentric, classic, feminine [points to jewels].

Hours of operation? Mon.-Sat. 11am-7pm Describe your store in one sentence. BluHeaven is a unique, feminine and affordable boutique that is a haven for women of all ages. What is your favorite piece in the store right now? Since I love the Seminoles, my current favorite is our three-way garnet dress. It’s a super cute dress that you can wear three different styles. It’s only $59, so everyone loves it! If your store was a song, what song would it be? A Jimmy Buffet song; his music is so laid back and that is how our store feels. If you could dress any celebrity in pieces from your store, who would it be? Jennifer Aniston. Like our customer, she has such an effortless beauty and looks absolutely fabulous no matter where she is. Find BluHeaven: www.bluheavenboutique.com


Hours of operation? 11am-7pm, seven days a week. Describe your store in one sentence. Olde Fields is where fashion, art and music all come together at the corner of Gaines Street and Railroad Avenue. If any fictional (TV, film, literature) character were to shop in your store, who would it be? I think Dom from The Fast and the Furious franchise would get into a street race on Gaines. The only problem is that those guys still use Google maps and aren’t aware of all the new construction and road changes in the area. Trying to edge out his competition, Dom hits the NOS and comes flying towards the Railroad intersection where

Jimmy Two Sandwiches (a guy who is always double fisting pastrami sandwiches) is trying to cross the road. Dom slams on the brakes and drifts around Jimmy, leaving him unharmed but kicking up lots of dirt on his clothes. Being the nice guy that he is, Dom offers to buy Jimmy a new outfit; he buys him a pair of Lira Jeans and an Owl print v-neck. Jimmy goes home happy and Dom from the Fast and the Furious shops at Olde Fields. What brands does your store carry? Our primary focus when picking out new styles and clothing is the uniqueness and quality of the individual piece. By keeping the focus on the piece it allows us to discover up and coming

brands and designers while keeping our prices down. Some of the brands we carry include Jack by BB Dakota, Toddland and Cheap Monday, as well as our own line of Olde Fields clothing that continues to grow. When your customer isn’t in your store, where is he/she? Honestly, probably getting lunch at Voodoo Dog or going out for drinks at the Filling Station; or maybe they’re just at home checking Facebook and watching Law and Order reruns. Wherever they are, we know they’re dressed well. Find Olde Fields: www.oldefieldsclothing. com 105

Sweet Patina is special because our items are unique and displayed beautifully. Our customer service is top notch and we have a created an inspiring and fun atmosphere! How did it begin? We opened less than a year ago when we


saw a niche for great looking home goods, both vintage and new. What brands does your shop stock? Our top brands include India Rose and Kharma Living linens, Vagabond Vintage house wares, Tokyomilk and Simpatico scents, Dash and Albert rugs and totes and, of course, one-of-a-kind vintage treasures. What is the most unique piece in your store right now? Probably a large cabinet unit from an old house in Georgia—really tall with chippy, peely paint! Find Sweet Patina:
