The Style Guy | Summer Style Tips

FASHION SPOTLIGHT on Charlotte Fashionista, Lori Coen-Terrell: This month I sat down with one of Charlotte's hottest fashion trendsetters. Lori Coen-Terrell has been taking the city by storm for years with her super cool, super chic vintage style. This girl loves fashion so much that she even spent part of her career in NYC as Store Director of the incredibly cool Betsy Johnson boutique in Soho. After her time in NYC, she returned to the Queen City and we are so grateful to have such an amazing fashion goddess among us. Lori and I met at Carpe Diem for some apps and cocktails to discuss everything fashion! Check out what she had to say:
