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. Not only has her popularity skyrocketed, she also met her fiancé here. They’ll say “I do” in town this year, and for all wanting to follow her wedding planning journey, check out her site for everything from save-the-dates to engagement shots and so much more. 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.
Here’s hoping you can find a love match in some of the jewels, too. (Oh, and that crazy-amazing ring in the shot above? It's Single Stone’s “Genevieve” 2.77 ct. marquise diamond from Croghan’s Jewel Box. Wowsah, indeed.)
We asked the Lowcountry’s top hair and makeup professionals what products they carry in their bag of tricks that can withstand the heat and humidity. For a gorgeous glow and polished locks, check out their top picks. Bonus? The majority of the products are Charleston brands with enthusiastic national followings. Stock up with these tried-and-true besties and you've got your own glam squad
