From Charleston with Love

There’s no doubt that Charleston is one of the most romantic cities in the world.  It’s easy to get enchanted by it’s old world charm and beauty.  I recently did a Valentine’s Day gift idea segment on Lowcountry Live and I discovered some local businesses that would contribute to a romantic experience whether your a local or visiting town.

Wonder what’s it’s like to live in a beach house on Folly or Isle of Palms, or a beautifully restored home downtown?  Luxury Simplified Retreats offers posh accommodations by way of grand homes, villas, and condos.  One of their properties is this historical house on Spring Street downtown that was formerly owned by Thomas Mayhem Pinckney. He was a notable African-American craftsman who played an integral part in the preservation development in Charleston.

The top that I’m wearing is actually a layered 2 piece sold together at  Maris DeHart.  It’s got that 90’s vibe with a modern day twist. You can always find emerging accessory brands at Maris DeHart, and this watch and earrings are no exception. The watch is by Berg & Betts, and they make their leather straps out of scraps repurposed from luxury accessory brands.   The earrings are by Larissa Loden who also upcycles unwanted pieces to create something new.  With average prices of $35, it’s a no brainer to scoop up something for you or as a gift for someone special.

This beautiful bouquet by Frampton’s Flowers will light up any room.  The 50-year old business is getting a new life by offering special arrangements for weddings and events. Who doesn’t love fresh flowers?
