As you may know from my last post, I was happily on vacation last week. While we somehow arrived in Charleston, South Carolina for record low weather, we nonetheless enjoyed our time in the charming city. Perhaps you won’t be surprised to learn that I had researched the shopping in the area. During my research, I came across various reviews of a high-end consignment shop called The Trunk Show. Readers, I’ve been in more resale and consignment shops than I can count, and I will tell you, The Trunk Show is something to behold. Check out my Wednesday post for additional details, pictures, and tips for shopping The Trunk Show, if you are ever in the area. For now, I’ll leave with you my warm thoughts of sun and the south (and this suit!)
Suit: Komarov ($40, retails for approx $600)
Top: Burberry (gift)
Shoes: Qupid via DSW ($25 marked down from $50)
Necklace: Ann Taylor Loft ($10 marked down from $40)
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I normally don’t thrift or consignment shop while on vacation…and I have no idea why I previously hadn’t! With so much else to see and do, I researched and then committed to digging through one store in a maximum of 45 minutes. I used travel guides and yelp to help guide my research. I have yet to find a reliable website other than yelp for this type of research, so I welcome any suggestions!
2) I actually loved the jacket on this suit; it was initially what drew me in. However, I will say that if you find a suit but don’t need a full suit, still get both pieces! You never know when you will want a full suit, and you won’t want to have half of one at that point. Additionally, I wear all of my suits as mix and match pieces, making the suit that much more versatile.

My review is 100% my own opinion and I did not receive anything in return for this review.
Any one else have tips on finding thrifting and consignment shops in your area? Thanks so much for stopping by readers! I appreciate it so much!

Lovely suit…i like it!
That’s a great suit! Beautiful textures and detailing; love how you kept the look clean and very style savvy.
Absolutely stunning skirt. Love box pleats. Not to mention, event though it’s two-tone, it’s the perfect neutral. You look great.

Gorgeous look! I always enjoy reading your posts. Have a great week!
Love from France
GORGEOUS color – love that muted dusty pink on you. And when did your hair get so long – very pretty!
I have always wanted to visit Charleston, sorry the weather was chilly but sounds like it was still a great trip – good restaurants as well as the obvious shopping success?
OMG…yes, I ate the WHOLE time I was there. Such a great city, I would definitely recommend it :)!
Great jacket! I love Charleston, it is hands down one of my favorite cities!
Dang!! Love the patterns and cuts of the suit..and 40$? Holy lord! I have one Komarov dress I had bought 7 years ago from Nordstrom, love it to death but certainly have not worn it more than 2/3 times :(. This spring I have to change that! Love the pleated skirt, its beautiful on you!!
I could totally see you loving their designs too- such great and whimsical designs. Definitely bust yours out this spring!!!
Awesome! I did a bunch of research on thrifting in London, but was ultimately disappointed. My best find was a fluke – I just happened to come across as sign advertising the vintage market where there were the best finds. 😀
Can’t wait to hear about your thrifting adventure! 😀
Also, the suit is fabulous. Absolutely love the skirt!
I’ve actually never thrifted outside of the US- so that’s interesting to hear! If you ever do find good places abroad, do share!!
Ahhhh I’m in love with that blazer!
It’s paired perfectly with the skirt:)
your skirt brings the outfit to life!!! fantastic combination!
Um, that suit is kinda amazing!!! No to mention a sweet deal too!
I love the pattern and detail, alone or together both pieces have endless possibilities! Sounds like you had a pretty fun trip!
I just love the textures here. The jacket has to be my favorite.
Love the whole outfit 😀 you are always stunning ❤ that neckpiece is the hero here 😀
This outfit is made for you! You look awesome 😀
