For this month’s fashion shoot, we asked our local boutiques to send an outfit that a southern gal could wear to an oyster roast or fall festival. As the weather turns cooler in the Lowcountry, the focus is on layers and thoughtful accessories.

Apart from being somewhat sexist, Mark Twain’s idiomatic expression the “clothes make the man” is fashioned in truth: People are often judged according to the way they are dressed.

firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to win $100 to spend at Coastal Bliss. We will draw a name from all correct entries and announce the winner on July 20 on CH2 magazine’s instagram and Facebook pages.

For this month’s fashion feature, we decided to hop in the car and head down the mostly untraveled roads of South Carolina in search of interesting backdrops. When was the last time you just got in the car and went on a drive for the pure joy of exploring small towns and places you’ve never been before?
Were it not for the cameras, it could be mistaken for any other night on Hilton Head Island. While locals and tourists milled about the long dock at the end of Simmons Road, drinks from Up the Creek Pub in hand, the first tendrils of sunset streaked pink against the sky’s lustrous orange tint. Broad Creek sparkled in its brilliance. A heron warily eyed the outgoing tide, preying on the minnows that darted between waves.
Special thanks to Dr. Rusty Harrington, Lawson and Maximilian Lowrey for hosting us.

Passion peeks out from behind a hot pink facemask as Afton Ryan calls a cheerful, “welcome in” to the customer who has just stepped into her charming Bluffton boutique, Egan + Ella. In spite of a pandemic that shut her doors just three months after opening, Ryan’s eyes gleam with a contagious energy you’ll want to catch.
Since 1981, Forsythe Jewelers has been bringing the world’s best designer jewelry and gifts to Hilton Head Island. Carrying the most popular designer brands, this family-owned business delivers an unhurried, small-town shopping experience to every customer who enters the store. Over the past three decades, Forsythe Jewelers has established itself as an island landmark, where customers are able to slow down and shop at a pace that only a vacation can provide.
The past few years have seen a surge of women worldwide making strides and breaking records in just about every industry imaginable. Although trending hashtags are #girlpower and #bosslady, sadly, a Google search for famous women musicians from South Carolina offers scarce results. However, three lovely Lowcountry ladies are on a mission to change that statistic by making waves on both sides of the river.
Special thanks to Barbara, Betsey, Terry and Mary Ann for their super-duper modeling skills.
Jesse Blanco is, no doubt, one of the Lowcountry’s most popular media personalities. In fact, Blanco and his show, Eat It and Like It, have become synonymous with food in the region. But what you might not realize is the diversity and point of view he offers his followers.
Georgia Holaus woke up one morning and said to herself, “I’m too young to do nothing. I need a job.” Having lived in Bluffton for five years, she was already infatuated with Old Town. She got herself all dressed up and made visits to the places she thought she might enjoy working. One of those places was Eggs ’n’ tricities, a boutique that’s been open in Old Town for 31 years.

Just like everything in our collective “world” right now, fashion looks a little different this month. With businesses shut down and social distancing the hot new buzz word of the month, we decided to do something a little different for our May fashion spread.

Does the face you see in the mirror conflict with who you are inside? Is the “real” you younger, more vibrant, less road weary? Many boomers report this phenomenon and are trying to figure out how to bridge the gap. I am one of them.
Do you ever come across someone and feel an instant rapport, as if being drawn by a strong magnet? Someone whose smile feels like a hug? Whose joy and verve are infectious? Prepare for that kind of powerful encounter when you meet Lea Mitchell, owner of Dream Boutique—the newest women’s clothing store at Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina.
We recruited a local model, the beautiful Lily, to show off the latest spring fashions in this model home in Oldfield.

Since the days of Cleopatra, rudimentary eyelash embellishments, often concocted of sticky, smelly substances, were a part of women’s beauty rituals. In 1872, French perfumer Eugene Rimmel did us all a favor when he invented the world’s first commercially available mascara made from petroleum jelly and coal dust. Well, ladies, we’ve come a long way!
The last six months have seen Emily Swallow juggle not one but three major TV roles, portraying characters as diverse as a research physiologist in CBS’ Seal Team, God’s sister in Supernatural and “The Armorer” in The Mandalorian, Disney’s smash hit Star Wars spinoff. Here, the Jacksonville-born actress shares why she swapped a career in the Foreign Service for the unpredictability of an actor’s life and explains why she has never looked back.
This month, we recruited local singles to model looks from our Lowcountry boutiques—and had them share their thoughts on their idea of a perfect first date, what traits are deal-breakers, and how dating has changed since the dawn of the digital age.
Effortless Beauty: Permanent Cosmetics HHI offers life-changing options for enhancing your appearance
Are your eyebrows missing in action? Are your lips disappearing into your face? Are you tired of hiding embarrassing scars? Maybe it’s time to consider a more permanent solution than traditional makeup, which is not only time-consuming to apply but often melts off when you walk out the door.
According to Sarah Rhoads, owner of Permanent Cosmetics HHI (PCHHI) people choose to get permanent cosmetics for a variety of reasons. For some, it’s about saving time. (Imagine rolling out of bed with your brows and/or lips already done for the day!) For others, it’s a matter of no longer being able to apply makeup skillfully due to vision changes or decreased dexterity. And for men and women alike, it is often about restoring their appearance after an accident, injury or surgery. Whatever the initial reason for their visit to PCHHI, clients are raving about the results.
One of the statements most often heard by the truly successful, whether a person or a business, is, “Boy, I wish I could bottle what you have.” In the case of FACES DaySpa, for 37 years the island’s...
