Girls Night Out is an event that is a necessity in any woman’s life. It’s that one night you can relax with a drink of your choice and let out every piece of gossip among a group you trust.

When you add jewelry making to the typical fun night, you get a “Gem Social”. Side Dish, a mobile fashion trunk, has made the “Gem Social” a weekly event that takes place at some of the trendiest bars around town. One of the jewelry designers that you can learn a few tricks from is Alyssa Luberto of Ability by Alyssa.sea glas “I’m lucky to be working as one of the jewelry designers and promoter behind it all,” Luberto said.

Remember the days when Artscape embraced fashion with their annual runway shows and fashion design competitions. In 2010, Artscape presented the “Sew Your Inner Green” contest where participants had to make garments using at least 75 percent of non-traditional materials. One of the top five finalist happened to be Andrea Tomlin, who was fresh out of fashion school.

“[The dress] was made with fabrics from IKEA,” Tomlin said. My aesthestic hasn’t changed too much since then actually. If you look at that collection and what I do now, you see some of the same silhouettes. The greatest difference will be in the styling with the addition of the t-shirts. The looks are a lot more funky now.”

When I have the time to enjoy live music (of course, I had more time to do this during my college years), I am always on the search for the next group of musicians to feature for my annual “Musically Chic” series.  I admit I have been wanting to feature Robert McFreshington and his crew that makes up FREEstate Workshop for a few years now.

FINALLY . .. the interview is here with a man some call Fresh or Fresh Competition! The British born EMCee began his journey with the Maryland music scene back in 2006. It was in October 2009 that he established FREEstate Workshop, an audio, video production, promotion and clothing line company all wrapped into one.  Just this year, FREEstate broke one million views on Youtube. Besides being the mastermind behind a company that supports local music, he’s gets killer style points in my book.

Who is Josephine Olivia?

She is a musician that performs Baltimore and in Annapolis in two major bands including Blacksage. Her original tunes are often described as creepy sexy lullaby jams from Baltimore. Peep her debut EP “Sixtape”.

What do you remember about your first live performance as a solo artist?

“I used to play music down by the docks in Annapolis Md with friends, but that was some years ago,” Olivia said.  I stopped playing for a couple years and about last year picked it up again but with more drive than before. I played my first show back at Two Boots in Baltimore- totally acoustic- I was mortified. My nerves are still pretty bad even though I play pretty frequently.

I remember thinking that I had 30 minutes to an hour worth of material, but by the time I actually got there and started playing, I realistically only had about 15…

Ms. Charm’s Chic Exclusive: Private Jewelry Showing with Freda Mohr

26 Oct

A few weeks ago, I received an email from Freda Mohr inviting me to a private showing for her jewelry line. Of course, I was extremely excited! We had been Instagram BFFs for a while and I have always been a big fan of her unique take on jewelry.

For some reason when I woke up yesterday, I felt like dressing up as a socialite. So, I grabbed my most animal printed dress and threw a crazy good black not fur coat on. And, I was on my way to Freda Mohr’s lovely home.

When I arrived, I found a parking space in no time (I love when you don’t have to pay for parking!). I walked up to her house and Freda opened the door with a big smile. Also, Freda looked highly fabulous with a printed dress on matched with a one-of-kind necklace handmade by herself and finished off with purple stockings and cute grayish boots.

The moment I met her I knew that we were totally destined to be friends.

After a warm welcoming, Freda showed me to her beautifully lighted showcase of her jewelry. The thing I love about Freda’s jewelry is it is something I do not see everyday. Each piece is stunning and threaded by hand. It’s a new take on the idea of tradition knitting and crochet being transformed into a wearable accessory.

For hours, Freda and I talked about rules of dating, public transportation tales, Baltimore Fashion Alliance fashion show and so much more while slipping on wine and eating cheese with crackers. Even one of her endearing cats took a liking to me and had a quick nap on my lap.

Before I left this inspiring private jewelry trunk show, I had to buy something.

You can’t be a Baltimore fashion blogger and not shop local or support fashion artists. DUH!

 I re-visit her jewelry and I could not keep my eyes off this crochet lace motif pendent wrapped in a gold chain.  I am happy to say it has a home in my wardrobe now.

Holiday season is here! I believe someone in your life deserves an unique, personalized gift.
