This lace dress from JLinSnider is one of the many standout pieces from her spring/summer collection.  This local designer really knows how to combine avant guard with wearability.  Her boutique on Upper King is stock full of many gems from her signature collection, vintage finds, and dead stock sunglasses that are pretty sweet.

When I stopped in local boutique JLinSnider on Upper King Street she was in the process of making these one of a kind shirts from vintage t’s.  Jamie Lin’s boutique is a great mix of her designs, vintage clothes and accessories.  I thought I’d take one the custom t-shirts for a spin along with some bell bottoms from her spring collection.  Right next door to JLinSnider is a new addition to Upper King, King Dusko which is a coffee shop/beer garden.  It was the perfect setting for my outdoor music fest vibe while I strummed on a ukelele from  George’s Pawn Shop.

Local designer JLinSnider’s fashion show at the recent Charleston Fashion Week had me gagging!  It was one show stopper after another.  I couldn’t wait to swing by her boutique on Upper King to try on some looks.  When I passed by the Rebekah Jacob Gallery across the street, I knew exactly what I wanted to wear.  Currently they are exhibiting installations from a Savannah based artist Markus Kenney, which is a must see.  He breathes life to taxidermy heads with his vibrant use of color, texture and unconventional materials.  I like to call it “Psychedelic Tribal”.
