Style blogger Hilary Rose Elrod took a leap of faith a few years ago and moved to Charleston from Texas, hoping to continue her fashion, beauty, and lifestyle blog here in the Holy City.

To help her celebrate, we asked if she wanted to join us to try on some of the most crush-worthy accessories in some of our favorite Lowcountry shops. Lucky for all of us, she said “Yes!” Check out the gallery for a little catalog of what she tried on while playing dress up as a bride, no less.
