What One of Charleston's Most Stylish Women Packs for a Road Trip
With her impeccably curated Charleston boutique, Hampden, embarking on a major renovation (fashion-minded locals take heart: a small section will remain open during construction), owner Stacy Smallwood is hitting the road for a series of trunk shows during which she’ll be debuting new arrivals—and offering pieces from last season at a steep discount. Curious about what one of Charleston’s most stylish women packs for a road trip, we asked Stacy to share what she’s bringing to wear at each of her stops. Here’s what’s going in the style maven’s suitcase:
