Part of being a lifestyle brand is engaging with other beautiful brands that walk hand in hand with our elegant, coastal style. We know that a home is comprised of pieces from many different places, and its important to us that our product will not just stand out from the rest – but we want to make sure our pieces compliment the rest as well. We have found that the coastal inspirations and whimsy of Spartina 449 are truly complimentary to the Emily McCarthy style.

Do you love Emily’s scarf in the very first photo? It’s darling and it’s even more precious because it’s a scarf with the map of Savannah on it. Click either of the images above to make sure it’s in your wardrobe!

We hosted a sip and shop event at Spartina 449’s downtown Savannah location at the end of October and had such a fun experience. The baubles, the totes, the devotion to seaside life – it truly aligns itself with all of our favorite things! How gorgeous is this store?

We see the girl with signature style who can’t get enough of a great classic, brown cross body bag. Inside it she has a journal to keep all of her fresh and exciting ideas about her passion. The Spartina 449 Savannah map journal tugs at our heart strings, because it’s so important to keep home close to you no matter where you are. She never leaves the home without a bit of sparkle and a bit of sass. Spot cheetah around her neck is a must!

She’s also the kind to have her folded notes closeby so that no matter what adventure she’s on, she’s sending love to those who fill her heart the most.

The great part about living in The South is that it takes the weather a while to catch on to the changing of the seasons allowing us to soak up extra sun. The bad part is that we are SO ready to pull out the scarves already! Thankfully, the nip in the air has been detected. This year, the Emily McCarthy shoppe made room for some new pieces to be done in our signature pattens.

Choose between silk blend rectangular or square scarves. Any of these options boasts yet another splash of elegance that you can use to dress up (or dress down) any ensemble. Click here to see the selection in the shoppe.

Layer up and be about town. Not only will you be noticed, you’ll be well dressed. Who could beat that combination? Which scarf will you be wearing this season?

 

Can’t wait to see your favorite!

Just like prosecco can be jazzed up with a splash of limoncello, classic holiday decor also deserves a delightful twist.  Such was the inspiration behind our latest holiday tablescape idea.

NewClassicHeader

Sarah Buck Photography joined us at Cohen’s Retreat to showcase a truly chic table that mixes patterns to keep you up to date, but rooted in tradition.

You know what we always say at the studio? “Have ingenuity.” This is exactly what you can employ to create your own masterpiece. The spot cheetah napkins are in a first place tie along with the monogrammed china for the most eye-catching pieces on the table. (Both items are available upon further inquiry with with shoppe!) As is in our nature to bring a look completely together, you can continue the theme with the Lisi Lerch Tassel Necklace in Gold (seen on Emily). Naturally, Everbloom made a floral arrangement to be marveled at.

The dramatic red tablecloth was furnished from Ranco Tent Rentals and Savannah Special Events, while the tartan overlay was a blanket from Home Goods. The stemware was another lucky purchase at Home Goods. The personalized place markers attached to the stems are from Michael’s. Whereas the gold chargers pictured are from Emily’s personal collection, you can find similar here. Your final stop would be to add your own flair like we did by including these fun “Merry Christmas” ornaments from Hobby Lobby at each place setting. We love to add a little dazzle!

There’s nothing like a nip in the air, a Prosecco candle burning, and a well placed dazzling accessory to bring out true holiday spirit. From a casually chic sparkle sweatpant to an ultra formal Tory Burch jacquard dress, we know just what you’ll want to wear to stay festive. We’ve found pieces you’ll want to run errands in, and run the bar cart in. Which one is your favorite?

Next up in our signature style series is Rachel Shingleton from Pencil Shavings Studio. Rachel is on a mission to “Banish the Beige” but installing pops of color into everything around her. We’ve fallen in love with her devotion to the bold. Here’s what Rachel has to say about her signature style.

PencilShavings7

EMc: Why do these photos show your signature style? What aspects really tell us who you are?
RS: My style is probably best describe my style as dressy casual. I want my things to get a lot of love and wear. So I might buy a pair of sequinned flats, but I’m going to wear them with everything from a cocktail dress to a pair of jeans and a tshirt. I don’t believe in saving things only for special occasions. I’m madly in love with color, pattern, and the way they interact with white (which is my neutral of choice) and I’m really interested in mixing and matching high and low items, both in interiors and in fashion.

EMc: How do you carry your signature style into all aspects of your life be it home decor, entertaining, or fashion?
RS: Color is a huge element of my signature style. In fashion, I like a pop of yellow (ha – could you tell from the inspiration pics?) be it in jewelry, a great bag, or shoes. And at home I’m having a major white moment – white paint is super inspiring to me right now, again, with pops of color through pillows, artwork, etc.

My goal at home is to create comfortable places for my kids to grow up in without sacrificing our own grown up sense of style. I think our interiors reflect that, along with a good dose of not taking ourselves too seriously. I want something that’s not too formal, but with a big dose of personality. I buy nice shoes, but I wear them hard. And likewise, I want to use my fine china for every day use because life’s too short not to use our nice things, you know? I’ve yet to do this often, if I’m being honest – but it drives me nuts to see it sitting in the cabinet without be loved daily.

EMc: What is your personal definition of “signature style”?
RS: Personal style to me is what makes me feel best at home with myself, be it through the clothes I wear or the things I surround myself with. It’s my own personality expressed visually.

EMc: Give us three words to describe you. Why did you choose these three words?
RS: Colorful, happy, fun: I’m naturally cheerful, and I get a lot of joy out of color, connecting with others, and doing fun things. I hope my kids remember me as this one day.

EMc: What are three of your most prized pieces that you think fully represent your signature style? This could be a piece of furniture, jewelry, art, etc.
RS: 1) Blue Prada handbag (a fab structured bag but in a great color that adds a little polish to basic outfits) 2) Green velvet tuxedo sofa that was from my Dad’s office. It’s currently needing a reupholstery job but I have big plans for it one day. The style is spot-on and transcends all trends. I adore that sofa. 3) My Suzy Landa delicate stacking diamond rings that my husband gave to me for our 10th anniversary. They’re so pretty and unusual, and the meaning behind them is everything to me. He’s a pretty amazing guy, my husband!
EMc: What is your best tip to encourage others to find and develop their own signature style?
RS: What do you gravitate to over and over again? There’s a reason you keep going back to it. Also look to things from your past with meaning associated to it. It’s hard for me to only pick three prized pieces; our home is filled with little things from my childhood or from my beloved grandmother’s home that were passed down to me. All these little layers and elements add up to signature style. At the end of the day, signature style is me feeling like my best self. So what is it about you that helps you feel your best?

Being festive isn’t just a pleasure, it’s a necessity around here. This year, there’s no question that you’ll be the most stylish witch on the block. When planning a bash of any kind, choose our Personalized Fill-In Invitation from the shoppe to set the tone. For libations, we think there is no better pair than our Spot Cheetah cocktail napkins in “Luxe Onyx” mixed with the Cheers version in orange for an All Hallow’s Eve Soiree.

I love a good tassel and combine that with a gorgeous beach cover-up? You have me sold!

I discovered Sundress on Instagram and recently snagged this beauty from my branding client, Cone and Coleman, in Greenville, South Carolina. I couldn’t be more in love with this vibrant spunky piece!

I’m always searching for practical fashion – my hunt for a stylish ‘croakie’ has officially ended as I discovered Veronica DeOre via one of my favorite bloggers, Sarah Tucker.

I introduce “Statement Eyewear Jewelry” – adorably styled and beautifully executed. Go from day to night as these beauties become statement necklaces.

Hand-crafted with care and designed by Heather Davis. I ordered this gem and am LOVING it!

Here are a few images of her pieces – hopefully you will enjoy, too!
