The other day, someone walked in while I was chatting with my boss and asked us about high-end male fashion designers. I drew a blank. I think I tossed out Hugo Boss, but that was it. It's not that I'm not fashion conscious, it's just that I'm not fashion minded (thus, I'm aware of it, but I don't wear it).
We headed down for night two of the fashion show last night and saw a hearty bunch of sisters at the show. The champagne was flowing heavy at the VIP bar and the shows provided tons of hot ladies fashions and a few nice outfits for us guys, too.
We've got recaps running on our Calendar Girl blog and Charleston Fashion Week has its own blog with daily wrap up that makes us a little disappointed we missed the StyleXchange show on Tuesday. See why after the jump.
SC Democratic Party Chairperson Carol Fowler will be the guest speaker at the April 9th meeting. The show starts at 6:30 at the Sunfire Grill West o' the Ashley River.
Certainly a busy time for these folks with Linda Ketner challenging Henry Brown.

The State Democratic Party Convention will be held in Columbia on May 3rd. Several Counties still have available Delegate and Alternate Delegate openings. We need as many Stonewall and Stonewall Friends in attendance at the Convention to ensure openly GLBT people are elected as Delegates to the National Convention. Several Stonewall members are running for these hotly contested delegates positions. So, let's get out and support them!
If you'd like to attend the State Convention, contact your local County Democrattic Party and sign up as a Delegate. Also, please let us know that you will be there by contacting Keith Riddle (KRiddle595@aol.com).
Be on the lookout for the unveiling of the new South Carolina Stonewall Democrat website - Coming Soon!

A letter arrives from Ketner For Congress HQ:
Yesterday afternoon, I filed to run for Congress in South Carolina's 1st District!
Many of you know that I grew up in a little town called Faith, and that I adored my grandmother. Ma told me when I was a small child that if I saw something wrong, God counted on me to fix it. I took that lesson to heart and have spent my life working to solve problems and make a difference.
Some of you have actually worked beside me with Katrina families in Mississippi, or on homelessness and affordable housing, on civil rights and social justice, or on children's issues, sustainability and more. Others of you have done important work in other areas. And here we are now, working together to make a difference in South Carolina!
Having you beside me convinces me that we will forge that new path forward. A path that leads to a 1st District known for its opportunities, exceptional education system, job growth in new technologies, commuter rails, clean air and water, support for veterans, and quality healthcare.
And, we'll forge a path that leads to an America which is again respected around the world - not because we have bigger guns and more money, but because we live our values of a level playing field, opportunity for all, fairness and compassion.
As your Congresswoman, I'll continue to take my grandmother's lesson to heart, and together we can take that new path forward to a thriving future.
I can't tell you how glad I am to be walking that path with you!
