Faux Real


I love that there’s so many great clothing and jewelry options out there that you don’t have to break the bank in order to look good.  Starting with this faux fur jacket from House of Sage in the prettiest color of pink blush.  This local Charleston boutique always stocks the of the moment clothing and accessories at an attainable price.  Located on George Street off of King, House of Sage constantly has new shipments delivered in everyday, and their hottest items sell out quick.  The owners are a husband and wife team Chris and Erin Abagnale, and they are amazingly good at posting on their social media the newness that comes in the door.

Croghan’s Jewel Box which is a family owned jewelry store that has been in business for over 100 years is known for their fine jewelry mixed with estate pieces.  They also offer jewelry that is incredibly well priced from brands like Freida Rothman and their in-house Gold Bug jewelry line designed by Mini Hay. These rings look like they could go for thousands of dollars, but are actually only by $160-$225.


Germain Dermatology is my go to place for anything skincare and they recently picked up the Australian sunglass brand Quay.  Their shades range from $45-$50, making it easy it easy to scoop up a couple of pairs.


So next time you think shopping local is too expensive, think again.  There are so many local boutiques that stock amazing merchandise at great prices.
