The Gold Standard

‘Tis the season for endless parties and reasons to get dressed up.   Finding the perfect holiday outfit might take hours of searching, but since I’m always popping in and out of boutiques I’m here to do all of the scouting for you.  This outfit which looks like a dress is actually a two-piece crop top and wide legged pants from Magnifique Boutique on Market Street.  This shop stocks a great selection of women’s clothing and accessories at all price ranges.  Owner Onna Mack recently launched her online store so now you can shop in the comforts of home. Take advantage of their Cybermonday deal with 20% off site wide and free shipping when you use code BLACKFRIDAY at checkout.

This wine bag is the perfect hostess gift and at $22.98 you might want to scoop one up for yourself too.   You don’t want to miss out on Magnifique’s holiday party on Dec. 5th for an evening of cocktails and shopping, beats by Dj Deirdre Zahl of Candy Shop Vintage, plus giveaways including a $500 gift card! Festivities are from 5-8pm at 92 North Market Street.

These jewels are by Barracuda Moon, made with love locally by Sydney Pope.  Her ocean inspired accessories are made to layer but are just as gorgeous worn alone to make a statement.  She up-cycles sea glass and other findings with 14kt gold to create one of a kind pieces that have a touch of luxe. Sydney knows the importance of giving back and a portion of all online sales are donated to the Polaris Project, a charity devoted to ending human trafficking.  Why not give a gift that gives back this season?  Take advantage of their Cybermonday sale with 15% off with code GIVELOVE17.   Barracuda Moon will be on the move over the next couple of weeks with 3 upcoming pop-up shops including the Daniel Island Holiday Festival at Volvo Stadium on December 2nd from 11am-4pm, Ro Sham Beaux at 493 King Street on December 9th from 12-4pm, and Thrifters & Drifters at The Royal American 970 Morrison Dr. on December 17th from 12-5pm.

The sunglasses are from iconic eyewear purveyors Friedrich’s Optik at 194 King Street.  The German company has been around since 1816 and has made frames for the most influential women in the world including Jackie O. and Iris Apfel.  These frames I’m wearing are actually called the Jackie, named after the legendary Jackie O.  Visit their lower King shop for both retro and classic frames that can be worn as eyeglasses or sunglasses.

If your wondering about my glow I’m wearing Luminous Complexion Fluid in EVA by Gressa Lumiére from Wildcraft. This serum is adaptable to any skin tone and can be used on your cheeks, eye lids or lips for a quick tint.  I used it on my cheekbones for a highlighter effect.  Wildcraft is an organic skincare and makeup boutique in South Windmere in West Ashley.  I could spend hours in there trying on product and learning about all of the amazing things it does to your skin, but more about that later.  Stay tuned for more outfit and gift ideas!
