Joan Marie - Women supporting women

Star Dog recently attended the Joan Marie Classic Fashion Show Luncheon at Rossini's in NYC

The event was hosted by Tony Award winning producer Dale Badway who kept us laughing and entertained.

Joan Marie Classics is a new line of lounge, party and pajama wear using the most luxurious, vibrant fabrics intended to bring high-end style and comfort to the discerning, modern woman.  Joan Marie Classics takes beautiful design and infuses it with feelings of fluidity, empowerment and femininity in their first ready-to-wear collection.
Here are a few of my favorites

The Complete collection can be view on thier website
The Joan Marie Classic Collection was created by  the mother/daughter team of Joan Marie Ambrose and Joan Marie Whelan.

With this dynamic duo overseeing every aspect of thier creations, it can be said that every piece was designed from the heart from divine inspiration and vision. In fact, the mission of Joan Marie Classics in the words of it’s founders is “to celebrate femininity and womanhood as we help you ignite the divine power, love and strength within you.”

Joan Marie Classics has proudly teamed up with Safe Horizon, the nation’s leading victim assistance organization.  Their goal is to grant $1,000.00 awards to girls or women recommended by Safe Horizon who need assistance in moving forward with their lives.  Their partnership with Safe Horizon  brings awareness to issues of abuse and how it impacts our communities, our homes and our workplace. A portion of the proceeds from the new lounge wear collection goes to Safe Horizon.

It was an afternoon of fashion, fun and charity.

Another great event Sponsored and promoted by Bridget O'Brien PR and Events

Joan Marie Classics can be found and bought online at and at select boutiques in New York City.

South Hill Necklace perfect compliment for your Star Dog Tee

Be Sparkly

How do you make a Star Dog Tee look better?? Add a piece of jewelry from the South Hill Design Collection!!

I received mine as a gift from my sister for my birthday last month.  It is truly the most personal gift i ever received and I was overwhelmed with emotion when I opened it.

I was being stopped in stores the very first time I wore it, being asked where I got it.

If I ever want a different necklace, I don’t  have to order a new locket!  I can simply order new charms and replace them whenever I feel.   There's a super secure magnetic clasp on the right and to change the charms you simply open the locket … in seconds you can change your necklace completely!
I have chosen my children's initials and birthstones  
No wonder that your creation will truly feel like one of a kind! 
There are so many possiblilties.  Get some inspirational ideas here.

Create your own beautiful design.  Here are some of my favorites:
For the sports fan

For the realtor

Great teacher gift

For the nurse

For the Twilight fans

For the Candy Crush addict

For Mom

Near and Dear to my heart I love how you can personalize these necklaces to fit any person or situation. A necklace that tells a story can be extremely powerful to someone.  
Breast Cancer awareness

Autism Awareness
November is Lung Cancer Awareness month

Check out the wide variety of Awareness charms South Hill Designs offer.

Seriously, I love this necklace, not only because my sister gave it to me, but. It suits my style, goes with pretty much everything I own and I get a ton of compliments on it
