I'm back from a wonderful weekend in Charleston, SC! I'll have lots of fun pictures and reviews up soon, but in the meantime, I thought I'd post some pictures inspired by the dresses seen in Charleston. While out and about in the south, I noticed all the lovely dresses worn by all the southern belles. They were vibrant, bright, fun, and decidely gorgeous! Here are a few that remind me of the "Charleston Dress":
Notice the bright, vibrant colors in this lovely halter here by Anthropologie. The ribbon adds a ladylike touch.
This navy number by J Crew, shows the more classic and subdued dress style of the south. Strapless, with a simple pattern, but truly elegant.
This floral strapless would be perfect for the beachy cities of the south. This fun-colored dress is by Gap.
This dress is the epitome of southern, preppy style! Think super bright - super fun! Actually, any Lilly Pulitzer item is sure to please in the south! Dress available at Nordstom.
"Dress Tip" for travelers to the south: choose a strapless, lightweight dress in bright colors, but know that in the coastal towns, especially Charleston, you can get away with pairing your dress with flipflops!
