Hello everybody! I am still in Charleston enjoying the festivities. Last night I met the lovely Candace from Dollface Style Scoop and The Shop Tart. I really enjoy meeting the people I talk to online because it so so so cool to put a face to the name. The fashion show last night featured different brands and boutiques. Plus Project Runway alum Mychael Knight debuted his first full collection since the show last night.
* Please note that my videography skills suck as always, and there is another sideways video section, but it is my fault this time because I thought the video would know to switch it back. Oh well. I’m learning! :)*
Monkee’s of Daniel Island-
The eclectic boutique blend funky rock and roll chic with a soft, feminine edge. I love the yellow eyes and lips on the models. I might actually try that. You can find them at www.monkeesofdanielisland.com.
This classic store showed the equally classic looks that it is known for. Ladies it you are looking for a great button down, some khaki pants, or a great spring sweater. Check BR out in a mall near you.
I was a little skeptical of this local line when I first heard about it, but being from the South I automatically love seersucker. I’m happy to say that the line didn’t disappoint me at all. Buy a pair for yourself or your favorite guy before summer starts. Check them out here.
This Daniel Island boutique showed some crazy cute girly pieces from Leifsdottir, Mara Hoffman, Ali Ro, and Anlo. Check them out at www.shoptheram.com.
House of Sage-
House of Sage is a new boutique that features laid back, yet really stylish clothes from brands like French Connection and Mavi. The clothes reminded me of LA or SoHo in NYC. Visit House of Sage here.
Palm Avenue is a Lilly Pulitzer shop. I love Lilly Pulitzer clothes. One of the things I like to do with this brand is search for the word Lilly written in tiny letters that they hid in the fabric. It is like searching for Waldo. I really like the Palm Beach feel of the clothes. The store even features a Lilly print with skulls on it. Super cute! Shop here.
Last night was the first night he debuted his full collection since PR and it was worth the wait. While I think he did a good job on PR, I think he still had a ways to go to improve his skill and taste level. Yesterday’s collection, entitled Carte Blanche, showed a new Mychael Knight. One that you didn’t see on Project Runway. One that had the power to show whatever he wanted to show. The striking white and black collection was full of elegant architectural pieces and jackets and leggings to die for. It was very space age and futuristic. I wish him much success.
