IN THE MAGAZINE WORLD, THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE IS THE MOST ANTICIPATED ARRIVAL OF THE YEAR. It’s the unofficial first look at this season’s fashion trends and predictions for the upcoming year. It’s the issue fashionistas can’t wait to get their hands on. So it is with much excitement that we present you, dear reader, with our own localized fashion issue—Bowie-style. For our annual fall fashion photo shoot, we chose Tommy Bahama to showcase all the season’s hottest looks straight from the runways. We also offer inspiration for home makeovers, a lesson in chic cocktail presentation and more. Whether or not you consider yourself a fashionista, your personal style is a reflection of your personality, lifestyle and taste. And we’re always looking for ways to put our best foot forward. Happy fall, Bowie!

You need a meal, you need clothes, you need somebody to watch your kids, your dog—whatever it is, Angie’s there for you,” Taraji said about her stepmother on a recent episode of My Houzz. Taraji wanted to do something special for Angie, who has been there for her since she was a teenager. When Taraji noticed  that her stepmother’s home near Washington, D.C. was in need of some updates, she reached out to interior designer Stephanie Gamble of Stephanie Gamble Interiors to get the job done. The first room that Stephanie took charge of was the small kitchen with cabinets that were falling apart. She tore out the entire kitchen to add more counter space, an island in the middle

for additional storage, prep area and seating as well as new cabinets. The base cabinets were painted navy in strong contrast to the white upper cabinets to give a light and airy feel. The designer also added a larger sink, refrigerator  and range while removing the wall that closed the kitchen off from the living room.  Moving into the living room, Stephanie updated the fireplace with the same quartz as seen in the kitchen. “It is a great way to tie everything together,” Stephanie says. Taraji and Stephanie choose softer furnishings with lots of seating for guests to finish off the living room. To see the entire home remodel, visit Houzz.com.
