The Skinny Dip, Charleston

 

What do you get when you combine a King Street clothing boutique with a coffee & wine bar that sells a heavenly concoction called frosé (a rosé slushie topped with champagne)?

Answer: Every girl’s dream!

I can’t believe it took me this long to discover the Skinny Dip Charleston, but I’m so glad I did. It’s an adorable store that hosts an incredible array of up-and-coming designers; with a common theme of high-quality, preppy, American-made pieces. Some of the featured brands I already know & love (Kiel James Patrick jewelry and Sail to Sable dresses), but I was thrilled to discover new brands such as Dudley Stephens (think sophisticated turtleneck sweaters and jackets made entirely of fleece) and Ellsworth and Ivey (a line of tailored capes and classic, crewneck sweaters sporting the names of iconic destinations such as Nantucket, Aspen, and Charleston). After doing a bit of research, I discovered that Taylor Ivey, the founder and designer of Ellsworth & Ivey, is the co-founder of Skinny Dip Charleston too!

*While I wasn’t quite ready for the camera in the second picture, you can get a better glimpse of my Ellsworth & Ivey sweater! I love where I live so much, I just had to purchase this CHS sweater to let everyone know 🙂

The Skinny Dip Charleston allows you to shop until you drop…upstairs, surrounded by bright furniture and cheerful decor (all for sale) while sipping on coffee or frosé from the bar! How have more boutiques not come up with this simple, yet ingenious idea?! Their beautiful, open floor plan allows for an inviting co-work space, yet a cozy and comfortable atmosphere to relax with a drink.
