Pearl in Mt. Pleasant has all the luxe and sophisticated clothing items any stylish girl could wish for. It’s a destination where you can find fashion forward pieces that would rival any big city boutique. I love the structural detail in this Phillip Lim dress, it’s the perfect mix of modern and feminine.

Out of Hand is another quaint shop located in the Old Village of Mt. Pleasant, and a few doors down from Swoon their sister store. This local Charleston boutique is abundant with wearable treasures for any girl, of any age. They also recently added a section of their store devoted to regional designers based in the south. Out of Hand is the place to find one of kind pieces that are distinct to Charleston.

I love the mix of futuristic materials in this outfit paired with a denim top. The hologram skirt from Unif brings me back to the rave days of the 90’s. The Puma sneakers from Sneaker are super fresh, they’re made out of 3M so they reflect in certain light.
Mexican artist Frida Kahlo was my inspiration for this look. This floral headpiece is just one of the many unique pieces from Treats for Tresses, the local mother and daughter team of Marylin and Tamysn Rickards. They make hair accessories that are perfect for any Charleston wedding or festive event. They use vintage jewelry, old lace, flowers from old hats, antique ribbons, crystal and pearl beads. For this reason, each piece is one of a kind and cannot be replicated.

Library by Lauren Lail recently launched her debut collection for spring/summer 2013. It’s a whimsical, feminine, and playful line of dresses and separates. Lauren’s love of vintage was interpreted into her collection of wearable pieces. Her downtown studio features a mix of vintage clothes and accessories that Lauren has hand selected herself. Lauren Lail notes the word Library as the perfect representation of her brand – “Vintage pieces have a story to tell , they are the books that make my library; each garment chronicles stories of the past and the women who wore them.”
