What does Christmas mean to you? For me it’s keeping tradition and starting new ones. Spending time with my family and keeping up with my social events is always a juggling act. I’ve been hitting the Christmas circuit hard this year from The Nutcracker, to attending and participating in Christmas parades around town. There’s always something to do in Charleston and I’m thankful for that. One of the events I always look forward to is Dandy Boutique’s annual Christmas Party. Tomorrow from 4-8pm they’ll be having store wide sales, and a GIVEAWAY worth $350! With their newly expanded Made in Charleston section and retro inspired clothes and accessories, you’ll be sure to find something for someone.
These beautifully cupcakes are from Cupcake Down South, and they are the most decadent and delicious desserts I’ve experienced. They’ve been promoting their 12 days of Cupcakes and everyday it’s another seasonal sensation like Eggnogg, Candy Cane, and Gingerbread to name a few. Forget about your diet until the new year and splurge on one of these delectable works of art.
Dandy Boutique always has the cutest clothes for the best prices. I just scooped up this furry coat for $68! You can hardly go out to dinner for two for that price.
I’m so grateful I get to collaborate with talented locals like owner of Dandy Boutique, Holly McGetrick. Not only does she have great taste, she’s the sweetest person with the biggest heart. She had the vision of opening up a store full of vintage inspired clothing and accessories and there still is no other store in Charleston like it. I’m looking forward to see what Dandy Boutique has in store for 2018!
As 2017 draws to a close, I’m reflecting on all the amazingly talented people I’ve been able to work with and I’m lucky that I’m still discovering new creatives to collaborate with. Holly brought this shoot together and it was a great team who knew how to nail that 40’s look. Big thanks to Nicole Mickle Photography, Makeup by Mariah at Pampered & Pretty, Hair by Rosa Martinez, and this sweet ride from Sea island event company. I’m looking forward to more fun shoots ahead!
