Last week I had the honor of attending an influencer event at Chosen, a recently opened boutique just outside of Uptown Charlotte in Myers Park. Chosen has an incredible mix of clothing, fine art, and housewares from designers such as Amanda Uprichard, Dolce Vita, 7 For All Mankind, Flying Monkey, Gaia, etc. From dresses, rompers and two piece sets to denim, accessories, shoes and what I like to categorize as “going out tops” – you know – the showstoppers you wear when out with the squad, Chosen is where you want to check first for gorgeous, unique pieces not found in your everyday stores.
Caroline, Chosen’s owner, was such a delight to meet and not only does she have a great eye for fashion and design, she also sources designers and artisans who support nonprofits and fair trade organizations. For those of you that know me well, you know that supporting organizations that actively work toward the betterment of others are close to my heart. Having a locally-owned retailer who includes a mix of brands that support these organizations is such an asset.
The event was a blast – I got to meet so many great, inspiring local influencers, sip some rose, try not to eat all the cake pops and cookies while also trying not to buy ALL the things. Here’s a few pretties that I picked up from the event. No worries for those of you not in Charlotte – you can shop online!
