This Emanuel Ungaro plaid suit from The Trunk Show is everything. The bright colors makes it so not traditional. I love also mixing high with low, so when I saw that this Forever 21 top from Ensemble Consignment Boutique matched the suit I had to go for it. I’m also obsessed with these Kate Spade booties from Shoes on King. The mesh detail makes it look like your wearing sheer socks with a T strap heel, genius!

This t-shirt by Memory’s Museum is by local street wear aficionado and photographer Tyler Jordan Mansour. He’s been a long time collaborator, and always brings a sharp creative eye to every project. He will be featuring his shirts among other street wear brands at The Big Mix this Saturday at the YMCA.
The founder and creator of The Big Mix , KJ Kearney, wanted to create a platform to showcase southern street wear brands in a relatively untapped market. He debuted this event during Charleston Fashion Week in 2011 with much success. His dedication to street wear culture spawned his former blog H1gher Learning where he posted hundreds of articles, interviews, and look books. The Big Mix is a progressive event that will surely bring some flavor to our charming southern city.
Just when you’ve seen it all, just wait until you experience Charleston’s 1st Fashion Truck, The Rolling Rack Boutique. Even though the food truck trend has caught on fire, selling clothes out of a truck is a trailblazing concept. Check out my Q & A with owner and creator Amanda Stephenson about how she’s bringing the store to you in her hip mobile boutique. Maybe Miss South Carolina was on to something when she said “That’s how we roll”.

Local photographer Sully Sullivan’s concept for the latest issue of Charlie Magazine is simple – “The State of Equality”. Everyone is equal as a human being, regardless of the color of their skin, age, sexual preference, religious beliefs, man or woman. These stunning portraits are a testament to the diversity of us as Americans, and the beautiful people right here in the South.

I couldn’t help but get into character with this dandy inspired outfit from Swoon Charleston. The red jacket echoes the spirit of the early 19th century, when appearance was everything. Everyday dressing was an art form and people from every class made sure their ensemble was top notch.
