An Afternoon Spent Shopping in Summerville

I had so much fun shopping in Summerville with Vincent on Tuesday. I thought I would post about some of my favorite finds around town.  My leopard wrap dress is flattering, light and airy which is a must for an outdoor stroll in SC on a mid summer day.


The leopard Wrap Dress I am wearing can be found here.

Make Up


My makeup is some combination of the usual.  (Dr.Jart+, IT Byebye Undereye, TheBalm Mascara, Urban Decay Shadow, Lancome Liner, Laura Gellar Highlighter) I have one new edition which I love!
My new Smith and Cult Gloss is fab.
 I am wearing “Life in Photographs” which is a shiny baby pink.  You can get it here.  I LOVE.

IMG_3410I have found some stores that I am looking forward to revisiting when I am not with Vince (I like to take my time and ponder.)  It’s sort of an experience.  Sort of like getting ready for a night out. Hunting and buying the perfect outfit feels about as good as wearing it.

First we fueled up on coffee at Cuppa Manna

East Winds

At East Winds we met Sabine, who told us about the different lines carried in the store. The Charleston Rice Beads and Uno50 were my favorites.  Gorgeous!

FLY Modern Apparel


I saw FLY in Azalea Magazine and wanted to check it out.  I am glad we did.  I LOVED it, and am looking forward to so back to school shopping there soon.  The woman working(I can’t remember her name and forgot to get her card) was the daughter in law of the owner.  She was very down to earth, and had eyebrows to die for!

 MOD Beaute’ Studio

I also saw this on the back of an Azalea Magazine and had never been.  I had gone to the salon that was there before, and used to occasionally buy Bumble and Bumble Hair products.  I stopped by MOD to see what lines they sell, and what services they offer.  I loved the framed prints in the entry area.  They carry Moroccanoil, R+Co and Oribe.

Accent on Wine


We regrouped for a light lunch and split three delicious “Bites.”  They are exactly the food that I could eat for every meal!  A piece of delicious french bread.  (A little toasty on the outside, but soft and light in the middle) with several options for toppings.  We got The Drunken Goat, The “Vinny” (Had to get that for Vincent) and The Blues.  They were delectable.

I grabbed a new publication called “NoLo” (Shortened for North Lowcountry) that focuses on Summerville, North Charleston, Goose Creek, Hanahan and Moncks Corner.
I will look forward to writing Shop Local Part 2, and 3, and 4…and on and on!

Sending love to you and yours from sunny Summerville SC,
