Charleston Fashion Week Day 3

Thursday was my last day of fashion week festivities. I wish I was ale to stay the whole week, but maybe I will be able to do that next year. Some of the collections that were that night were either a hit or miss with me. Oh well. That is how it should be. You can’t love them all. Oh and notice how my video skills got slightly better by the end of my time in Charleston. LOL!

Eden Boheme-
This store featured really cute and feminine clothing from the store’s owners(Lucinda Race and Anna Lassiter) and other brands like Wink and Sass & Bide. I really loved some of the short sets and jumpsuits.www.edenboheme.com

Tommy Bahama-
Tommy Bahama is not my cup of tea. My dad likes this brand, but I just can’t get into it. I mean how many palm leaf covered shirts can you make.www.tommybahama.com

Copper Penny-
Copper Penny was another cute boutique that I liked. Everything was fun, hip, bright, and trendy. The styling of the model’s was really good. www.shopcopperpenny.com

Hampden Clothing-
I really loved this store too, so much so that on Friday, before we left, I just had to check it out. Everything here is very edgy because they carry lines like Opening Ceremony and Alexander Wang. I see why Marie Claire named this boutique as one of the top 50 store nationwide.www.hampdenclothing.com

Seeking Indigo-
This boutique had ethinic, tribal inspired clothing that wasn’t my cup of tea, but still thought were pretty. They feature exclusive pieces from kavita Bhatari and Gunjan Rahul. If you are into Indian inspired clothes, this is the store for you. www.seekingindigo.com

Pearl-
Pearl was a very chic boutique. If you are looking for womanly, beautiful clothes by Jason Wu, Erdem, and Thakoon, this is the place to go. They have everything to make your wardrobe last from day to night.www.shoppearlonline.com

Mary Porter Couture-
Mary Porter is a local designer who has been making clothes for over 20 years. Her evening wear and bridal dress were gorgeous. Every time a look came out, people would gasp. The collection reminded me of those old movies with Greta Garbo and Ava Gardner.
