Taking the Plunge

Friday night at  Charleston Fashion Week was Mason Hosker‘s runway debut.   Of course I had to wear a dress by the local designer.  This one was quite special since it was one of a kind and named after me!  The structure of the bodice was the most flattering I’ve ever worn in a plunging neckline. Once you try on a Mason Hosker you’ll understand why it’s important to invest in a dress where fit and quality are impeccable.

I wanted to get a certain kind of updo and Christin at Dry Bar Charleston went above and beyond what I was thinking.  She gave me this modern twist to a retro style, something I could never have dreamed up or found on Pinterest.

With all the creme and blush tones I was wearing it was so easy to pick out a clutch from Taxidermy and jewelry from Ash Hoffman and Croghan’s Jewel Box.

“Andrea” dress by Mason Hosker $895 // “Maris” diamond earrrings $795 and custom diamond and amethyst stacked rings by Ash Hoffman // 18k moonstone diamond Moroccan ring $4,950, 18k morganite diamond hexagonal stone ring $1,840, sterling silver moonstone & topaz bangle $680, 18k diamond bangle $3,200, sterling silver moonstone white topaz bangle $570 from Croghan’s Jewel Box // “Harper” Natural Lizard clutch $895 by Taxidermy // “Aggie” rose gold pumps by Summit by White Mountain $179 from Zappos // “Wally” Phone Case by Distil Union $34.99 from Amazon // RMS Beauty Nail Polish in Luminizer $15 from Anthropologie

Marble Top

Last Thursday night at Charleston Fashion Week I got decked out in Maris DeHart to represent their Style Makers tent.  They recreated their Vendue Shop in the middle of Marion Square complete with fixtures filled with items from featured designers – Hart Studio, Catie Curran, Naked Eyes, Ellia Wang, and Lisa Hoang; plus local makers Element Candles and art by Sam Rueter.

Maris DeHart is doing a special collaboration with 2016 CFW Emerging Designer Lisa Hoang for a capsule collection including this marble top that I was so excited to scoop up!  These earrings by Hart Studio were the perfect accent to my outfit.  Her tassel earrings are taking the town by a storm. I swear every other girl I saw at Fashion Week were wearing her earrings.

There’s nothing like piling on some diamond rings by Croghan’s Jewel Box to pair with this Antler Box by Taxidermy.  I definitely felt like a million bucks.

Marble top by Lisa Hoang x Maris DeHart $178, Pants by Do + Be $118, Berg + Betts watch $128, Earrings by Hart Studio $54 from Maris DeHart // Goldbug cuff $250, 14k diamond Tahitian pearl ring $485, Labradorite diamond ring $2,825, 14k moonstone diamond ring $2,900 from Croghan’s Jewel Box // Antler Box clutch $695 by Taxidermy // “Brody” platform oxford by Summit White Mountain Shoes $148.95 from Nordstrom // Pink robe coat from The Trunk Show
