2017 is here and there’s so much to look forward to.  Living in a city like Charleston where there’s constant change means that there’s more opportunities for local businesses to grow and southern designers to be featured in local shops.  My latest purchases from House of Sage  like this moto jacket and jeans by Ellison will easily take me from this southern winter to spring seamlessly.  Both of them together cost under $150, not bad at all!


Emerging southern designers are abound at Maris DeHart where beautifully handcrafted products can rival any mass manufactured accessory.  Myrtle Beach based jewelry designer Ash Hoffman pumps out one a kind bohemian bling like this cuff and rings.  Savannah based accessory designer Ellia Wang makes thoughtful modern bags and jewelry like this leather clutch.  Her innovative prints on suede will stop you in your tracks and this new design is no exception. Both designers are also a part of the Curator Covets collection I’m collaborating with at Maris DeHart benefitting the Lowcountry Orphan Relief.  To learn more check out my previous blog post here.
