Her much anticipated “SOUTH: Spirited Entertaining and High-Style Fun All Year Long,” is an informative and down-to-earth guide to throwing an unforgettable party chock-full of secrets she has collected over a lifetime of entertaining.

“I adore Julia Christian’s painting of Otis, who reminds me of my own beloved hound Henry. Otis is not only beautifully painted and framed, he’s the perfect mascot for the waning Dog Days of Summer when lazy entertaining is key and cool cocktails are a must. Here are some can’t-miss finds to see you through!”  –Julia Reed

Plotner

As days begin to get shorter again with fall right around the corner, we are soaking up every last drop of summer possible outdoors in Charleston. I have my eye on key transitional pieces that layer and travel well. This collection, full of global-inspired fashion, is perfect for late summer road trips with friends. Similar to Brackish, the other brands I’m drawn to showcase artisanal craftsmanship and visual interest. Colorful patterns and prints make for some true statement pieces.

Taigan’s Business Developer, Barby White, shares the Taigan products she packed for her summer vacation to Spain!

I am a travel ADDICT and anyone who knows me knows – just give me an hour and I will be packed and ready to go!  I love to see and do anything new!

Anyone who loves to travels has their “must-haves” that go first into the suitcase. These are the clothing/shoes/accessories that are the workhorses of both style and function, helping even the weary traveler feel fresh and chic and ready for the next adventure of the day.  The following items go with me wherever I go, because they can all do double duty in various ways.

Kate Skinny Cargo Pants. $225. 

My Anatomie pants- both white and black.  I NEVER leave home without these two pairs of pants- talk about workhorses!  With one in white and one in black, I’ve got every top/pair of shoes covered.  These pants do not wrinkle.  **A tip**- even when they do not look perfectly pressed, once you put them on, the fabric works with your shape and magically smooths out!  They dry super quickly if you need to hand wash them at the hotel- they will be dry in the morning.  They can literally do cocktail party to pounding the pavement in your flip-flops while you sight-see.  Most importantly- they are SUPER FLATTERING on everyone.  Enough said :-))

barby spain 10

Wrapped Up Hat. $245. 

Lola Hats.  Super chic and prevents sunburn- what more can you ask?

barby spain 1

Custom made. Other pieces available here. 

88 by Sandy Simonian necklace- one of several of her necklaces that I have.  The creamy color works with dark and light colors.

barby spain 5

Angel Wing Hoop Earrings. $1,580. 

Martha Ackerman earrings- stunning!  Can look edgy or elegant- I wear with both jeans and dresses.  They are a statement piece so you really don’t need to pair them with any other jewelry unless you want to.

barby spain 7

Grandeur Cuff. $285. 

Stephanie Kantis cuffs.  I adore these cuffs – the gold is such a lovely hue, brushed but not too much….a bit of shine but not too much!  The designer, Stephanie, told me to wear one on each wrist rather than stacked, for a very “Cleopatra” -esque vibe.  I of course took her advice, as I look so much like Cleopatra!  Ha!  But I do love that advice 🙂

barby spain 8

Sf2 Moonphase Silver Dial. $650. 

Nato Strap- Red. $25.

Hook & Gaff watch and extra watch band.  I wore this watch, switching up the bands, every day for 2 weeks straight on my recent trip to super HOT Spain, where we toured, hiked, swam and sweated our way through the country.  It’s indestructible and so fun- love the oversize watch look on ladies in summer, and the bands are colorful and just feminine enough to still be sporty.  Never have to worry about discoloration – of your wrist or the band.

barby spain 6

Custom Made. Other pieces available here. 

S. Carter necklace, shark tooth pendant, earrings. Always love S.Carter- creative and fun pieces- never fail to get compliments wherever I go on the interesting style and material of her designs.
