This shoot was done off a magical road in James Island near Folly Beach called Sol Legare. It’s history has been deep rooted with the Civil War, and it’s still common to find old bottles and gun shells from centuries ago. The overgrown trees and sprawling marshes were the perfect setting for an outdoors lifestyle shoot.

Who says you can’t wear sequins in the daytime? Why wait for nightfall to shine in your favorite sparkly thing? When you pair it with jean shorts and a sheer kimono top it makes it effortless.

Children’s wear designer Barbara Beach makes whimsical and sweet children’s clothing that reflect all the elements that we all love about Charleston . The historical homes, gardens, food, and culture are an everyday inspiration for her collection. Her use of prints and classic silhouettes are reminiscent of a time when people put a conscious effort into dressing their little ones. I had a chance to ask Barbara Beach a few questions about her focus on children’s wear and her love of Charleston.

I love how these black and white printed pants from Haute Hanger make a bold statement, but paired with a soft color like this blush blouse, makes it more tame. These Schutz shoes from Harleston are the perfect mix demure and rock n roll with the studded heel.

This lace dress from JLinSnider is one of the many standout pieces from her spring/summer collection. This local designer really knows how to combine avant guard with wearability. Her boutique on Upper King is stock full of many gems from her signature collection, vintage finds, and dead stock sunglasses that are pretty sweet.

Being a vintage dealer, consists more than knowing what’s in style now and the current trends, but they have to know what’s cool from any decade. Amy Rose Walter of Red Rose Vintage has that instinctual eye, and styling skills to make a Beavis and Butthead tank top look chic. The excess of everything in the 80’s is Amy’s favorite style era, and inspires her to take fashion risks. This former Karaoke host from San Diego now calls Charleston home and is excited for the future of of fashion here locally. I was intrigued to do a little Q & A with Amy Rose Walter to peek inside her life of vintage.
