The Girliest Spots in Charleston


You will rarely find me in heels, and I’m really not the most girly-girl when it comes to hair and make-up. However, I sure do love to get together with the gals and go to a super adorable space whenever possible. Here are the most girly shops & restaurants around Charleston, which you’ll enjoy whether you’re here for a bachelorette or just wanting to treat yourself to some holy city cuteness!


This modern Mexican-inspired gem is just popping with pink! If you love the Instagram account @PlantsonPink, you’ll feel like you stepped into one of their posts when you go to Semilla. Bonus: the food is phenomenal (best ribs in town)!

This gorge champagne bar is nestled inside the fancy new Hotel Bennett. An opulent chandelier, fresh flowers, and plenty of pink will have you ogling your surroundings while you sip your bubbly.


Cannonborough Collective

Now that we’ve expanded our shop and taken over the next door space, we have even more pops of pink and cute new merchandise for you to browse! As always, we have plenty of girly balloons like unicorns. I’ve also expanded my offerings to include more home decor & entertaining items, so I hope you’ll stop by soon to have a look.

Jude Connally

I just love this adorable back room at Jude Connally on King Street! Prior to developing her clothing line, Jude was an interior designer and you can certainly tell by the way she decorated her store. BONUS: Jude really knows how to design clothing that makes any woman feel amazing; you’ll go gaga for her prints!

The Skinny Dip

You probably already know where to go the next time you have a hankering for frosé, and you’ll love shopping their brands like Sail to Sable and August Morgan!


The Community

This adorable new kid on the block is stocked with all kind of brands from home decor items to skin care. They have cute offerings for kids as well.

You’ll love the vintage and vintage inspired jewelry in this cute little shop, and it’s just right down the street from Cannonborough Collective.

Best CHS Bachelorette Weekend Ideas


One of the questions I get DM'd about the most on Instagram is, "What should I do for my bachelorette party in Charleston?"  I've given this one a LOT of thought, so I have a great round-up of ideas that I think you and your girls will love.  Also be sure to get in touch if you want to set up a private sip & shop or workshop at our store, Cannonborough Collective!

This is a great chance to see inside a Tradd Street Home.  Talented designers from around the region decorate different rooms in a lovely Charleston home, and you get to tour it!  See my post from last year's house here, and go to this link to purchase your tickets.
