Charleston, SC Recap

Just yesterday I got to spend all day in Charleston, SC! What a bad city to be stuck in--right? (wink-wink). I had internship training all day on Daniel Island and we wrapped up earlier than I expected so I got to entertain myself for 2 hours. Not wanting to spend any money but still wanting to shop I found myself in a bit of a bind. Unless you're like me and love weddings...I managed to take what I called in my facebook status the "Charleston bridal boutique tour". I hit up all kinds of different stores along King Street and even headed into a store on Church street when I went back to where I was parked! These were my favorites:

1. Lula Kate
First I headed into LulaKate! I saw this the first time I went to Charleston but unfortunately they were closed. This time I got to window shop for a little longer than what most people would consider "normal" but they had a stunning sleeveless, ruffled v-neck dress. I couldn't get enough! It was similar to this dress from their blog:


They're by appointment, so I browsed from the outside again. I've seen many of their dresses in different magazines but have fallen in love with this dress:
I love the playfulness of the polkadots! I would probably remove the belt because I'm not cool enough at all to pull that off but I love the shape and inlay of the polka dots. It would be so fun with the right colors!

I'd written about Fabulous Frocks during Southern Weddings Week ! I was on my way back to the car when a dress in the window caught my eye. I didn't even realize it was Fabulous Frocks so I got so lucky! 
This dress was in the window! I went in to inquire more about it (and as I told them..."It's never too early! Right?"). This Romona Keveza dress was beautiful in the window. The ruffle detail was so pretty and feminine and delicate that I had to ask! The sales team was all so friendly and nice (even though they're by appointment too I had to pop in) and they even had a Charleston Fashion Week designer in their company!


Then a friend (HEY SASS--enjoy your shoutout my lunch buddy!) and I went to lunch at Virginia's on King which was Southern deliciousness. I had the grilled chicken sandwich special and he had a fab looking tomato and grilled cheese combo! We had a great time and got to enjoy a perfect perch right by the front door which was great for CHS peoplewatching!

As you can tell I had a wonderful time playing around in Charleston! I was very lucky to get this internship as well as have enough time to dillydally around in such a beautiful city all day long!

I could gaze at wedding frocks forever, as is painfully evident on the blog! The ones you found are all lovely, what a delightful way to burn those extra two hours!

Sending you a smile Miss LBP,
