There’s nothing more that I love than to mix a print on print.  Cynthia Rowley always has a great variety of signature prints every season.  She’s also been on a roll with using neoprene fabric, which is really flattering.   The store is always stocked with perfect party dresses and fun pieces that will inject vibrant energy into your closet.

Copper Feel

I’m ready for dinner, drinks, and a little disco dancing in this copper sequin dress from Ensemble Consignment Boutique.  This consignment store in James Island really has it all – from vintage, to brand new items from hot labels such as Cynthia Rowley and Theory, to an array of fun cowboy boots.  The wooden sunglasses from WoodRoze are crazy good.  The earrings and cuff are by James Island based designer Kate Davis.  I love her bohemian beachy aesthetic.

  This Troubadour dress reminds me of a lemon inspired print and is the perfect hue for summer.  The shoes are by Rowen, a local shoe company that designs super cute women’s shoes that have a retro flair.

I’m in love with this one piece swimsuit by Seea from McKevlin’s Surf Shop on Folly Beach.  You can wear it as a rash guard, swimsuit, or as a top with jeans.  Seea is a California based company that is committed to domestic production and sustainable design.  You can find an extensive selection of Seea and other great product for men’s, women’s, and kids at Mc Kevlin’s.  The necklace is by Two Little Birds, a local designer who sells her handmade accessories at one of my favorite James Island Boutiques, Beba Luxe.

I love the color of this dress, you really can’t go wrong with coral, it looks good on blondes, red heads, and brunettes.  The dress is from Warren on King, a quaint boutique on lower King St.  They carry easy, girly dresses and a variety of fun accessories.  The towering platform heels are geisha inspired and added an extra 5 inches to my height!
