Shop St. John Knits at Gwynn's of Mt. Pleasant trunk show this weekend

Simple luxury

Posted by Mary Scott Hardaway on Thu, Oct 12, 2017 at 12:04 PM

  • Provided
Founded in 1962 by Robert and Marie Gray, St. John is an American luxury house specializing in "effortless, alluring, and refined clothing." While the clothes they offer today are worn by the likes of Kate Winslet, Angelina Jolie, and Hillary Clinton, the company has humble beginnings — a knitting machine inspired Marie to design dresses for herself, and the brand has since been a "coming together of craft and couture based on the premise of a simple, yet elegant knit dress."

Shop the couture line this Friday and Saturday at Gwynn's of Mt. Pleasant from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Gwynn's, founded in 1967, is an independently owned and operated luxury department store offering men's and women's designer clothing and accessories, including labels like Jimmy Choo, Escada, Tom Ford, and more.

Red Rose Vintage announces launch of Kritter Klips, $5 sale, new pop-up location

It was roses, roses all the way

Posted by Mary Scott Hardaway on Tue, Oct 10, 2017 at 2:08 PM


If you're looking to switch up your wardrobe on the cheap, but don't have the sartorial acumen of those Insta vintage hotties, Red Rose Vintage is the mobile shop you've been searching for: It's got all the drool-worthy throwbacks compiled in one place.

Housed in a 1976 Airstream RV, Red Rose specializes in all things 80s and 90s, from Levis to flannel to fringe. This Fri. Oct. 13 the mobile shop pops-up at AAA storage downtown (44 Line St.) from noon to 4 p.m. for a $5 vintage yard sale. Seriously, that's less than a breakfast sandwich. They're teaming up with Tuff Stuff Vintage so guys and gals can stock up for fall, Halloween, or holiday goods for friends and family.

Red Rose is also launching a new line called Kritter Klips, and to be purrfectly honest, it sounds pawsome.

You know those Snapchat filters that make your eyes big and cute and your skin glow-y and your ears into something fuzzy and mammalian? You can now achieve that look (mostly) in real life with these clip in animal ears. The launch will happen Sat. Oct. 21 at Park Cafe from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Best, part, 10 percent of the proceeds from the Kritter Klips go to Pet Helpers.

Event Details Red Rose Vintage Kritter Klip Launch
@ The Park Cafe
730 Rutledge Ave.
Charleston, SC
When: Sat., Oct. 21, 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
Fashion + Shopping
Be sure to look out for the pop-up at its new location, 424 King St. (parking lot across from Black Bean Co.) starting Wed. Oct. 25.

'Vogue' names Charleston one of seven "Low-Key Bachelorette Party Destinations"

Last fling before the ring

Posted by Connelly Hardaway on Tue, Oct 3, 2017 at 1:11 PM

BBI in @voguemagazine! Speechless. 🙌🏻 #bberryinteriors #interiordesign #vogue #86cannon #charleston #instagood

A post shared by B. Berry Interiors (@bberryinteriors) on

Bachelorette parties take over Charleston every weekend. Hell, we've seen them creep into town as early as Thursday mornings, clutching non-fat vanilla lattes, seeking shopping on King and cocktails on any given rooftop. We don't hate these sash-and-crown bedecked brides-to-be — in fact, we appreciate their boost to our economy.

But we really don't think Charleston needs to attract anymore "bride tribes." Once Republic's outdoor patio fills with not one, not two, but seven different bridal entourages, we've reached our limit. Unfortunately, Vogue has outed our fair city as a "low-key bachelorette party destination" that "your friends will appreciate." Ugh.

While Charleston may not be the Big Apple or even Nash-Vegas, we beg to differ with Vogue's assessment of our town as "low-key." We've seen way too many penis pops flung around Upper King for that to be the case. Regardless, Charleston is a hotspot for bachelorettes, and Vogue recommends that you head here for a "Southern Soiree."

Vogue's tips? Eat at Husk, The Ordinary, and FIG and book your stay at "boutique stunner" 86 Cannon — $339 per night (with rooms outfitted by local designer B.Berry) — or Belmond Charleston Place, where you can enjoy a "sparkling rooftop pool and ladylike afternoon tea." We'd have our tea no other way, Vogue.

Check out the full list, which also includes a "not-so-Napa wine weekend" and "glamping on the California Coast" online.
