Hey y’all! It’s fabuless boutique of the week Wednesday! I’m starting with boutiques that I follow on Instagram and this week it’s all about House of Sage!
Located slightly off King Street and in the heart of Cougar Country, this boutique is bohemian chic, on trend, and budget friendly. From the brunch crowd to beach babes there’s a bit of something for everyone. Did I mention that it’s budget friendly?
What I enjoy about boutiques is usually the one-of-a-kind finds, but with everyone competing to carry the most popular pieces sometimes it’s hard to find a place with an original feel. Not at House of Sage. It’s eclectic and funky and homey. Right now, no other boutique feels like House of Sage. I also love that they carry local brands.
These Nectar sunnies are James Island bred and feature my favorite style: Wayfarer! They start at $25 and are offered in a multitude of colors! Light weight and pure statement makers, these local favorites are game changers. If you’re looking to gift me anything just know that my favorite color is pink and I love an animal print 😉
I also love accessories like necklaces and bracelets (bangles are life!) and HoS had plenty! These message bracelets are so adorable! They’d stand out alone, stacked up, or mixed among a stack of metal bangles. There was a great selection of accessories–not so much that you’d get overwhelmed, but enough to give you options. You know what I mean, right?
Forever 21 overwhelms in two ways: you get to the point where you just pick because you really need these jewelry pieces and you really just want to get out of there before the line wraps around the store OR you just get tired of looking because you’re overwhelmed and the line is long, so you just leave empty handed. It’s quite the opposite at HoS.
Quality fashion forward pieces without breaking your budget; seriously, if Nicole Richie is one of your fashion icons and you want Nikki Fre$h style with an affordable price tag then you have to hit up HoS! I also love their home decor and lifestyle pieces! Candles, mugs, tumblers, bags–there’s honestly something for nearly every facet of your fashionable life happening here.
I honestly couldn’t leave without buying something and the internal debate I had in this store with myself was tense! I didn’t know what to get! A tumbler? A mug? A tank? A bangle? That SC pendant? Then I saw it. Pink and tye dyed. A gloriously pocketed maxi/caftan–it was everything!
Picture it with a bralette, lots of gold necklaces, bangles, sandals, and big hair. Can you see it? The perfect summer look with a $44 price tag! IT’S ONLY $44 AND IT’S LUXURIOUSLY SOFT AND FREAKIN PERFECT! The Drift Off Dress is offered in a few other colors and I’m wearing a small (I think the largest size offered is large). Seriously, how have y’all not been shopping here?! Or, how have you been shopping here and not telling the rest of us?!
AND they have a punch card system! What?! Rewards, Son! Everyone’s winning here!
Overall, House of Sage is a great mid priced boutique (though, it can get pricey depending on what you’re looking for but that’s to be expected). It’s easy to put together an outfit for $100 or less here. They’ve got great finds and atmosphere, but it is Downtown so the parking might be your biggest hurdle. I tend to shop Downtown on Sundays–light foot traffic, free (and debatably) and better parking options. I met one of the owners, Chris, who was very accommodating and helpful to customers.
House of Sage is definitely worth the trip downtown to 51 George Street for all you bohemians and laid back lovers. Tell them I sent you–it may or may not mean anything. It doesn’t mean anything, but say it anyway 😉
