South: Try a Moscow Mule in our Copper Mugs!

Posted on: March 24th, 2015 by admin

Spring has sprung, and we’re craving a refreshing cocktail that’s perfect for warmer weather: the Moscow Mule. It’s hard to believe, but this cocktail was first mixed at the famous Las Vegas Cock N’ Bull out of necessity. The Cock N’ Bull owner had a large amount of homemade ginger beer to use at the same time a friend was looking to get rid of a large stock of copper mugs. They combined resources, added fresh-squeezed lime juice, and the rest is history. The Moscow Mule became one of the most popular cocktails of the 1950s and 1960s – and has experienced a recent revival, finding it’s way back onto many cocktail menus. Pick up a copper mug in SOUTH– available in a small ($25) and large ($30) size – and try making this cocktail at home! Our favorite recipe is below.


The Out of Hand Spring Trend Report

Posted on: March 5th, 2015 by admin

Here on Pitt Street, we are more than ready for Old Man Winter to get on his merry way. Jill Bowman, Out of Hand’s Store Manager and Style Guru, is looking on the bright side and gave us her Spring Trend Report. Stop in to see Jill at Out of Hand, and reset your mind while restocking your closet using her Top 10 Fashion Trends for Spring/Summer 2015.

1. Leather and Suede

Kind of like that Stevie Nicks song, but not quite. These fabrics are not just for fall any more. We have a beautiful collection in-store from illia that mixes lightweight leather, linen, and cotton.

2. Bold, Bright Colors

We’re loving this season’s burst of luscious lemon and red. After a cold and dreary winter, a refreshing splash of color in your wardrobe is a basic necessity.

3. Novelty & Floral Prints

Do these scream “Spring is in the air!” or what?

4. Tea Length Skirts

Quite simply the epitome of femininity. {Channeling Audrey Hepburn!}

5. Body Chains

These delicate chains are feminine, sexy, and subtlety enhance almost any figure. Some of our favorites come from Chan Luu.

6. Glitter and Sparkle

Just add a little glam to your outfit with glitter, shimmer, and rhinestones. We’re all about glam-accessorizing with makeup, body lotion, jewelry, and nail polish.

7. Laced-Up Looks

Laced-up shoes and clothing should be your best friends this spring. Because, really, what’s better than wearing something comfortable and sexy?

8. A Bucket Bag

Big or small, the bucket bag is this season’s “it” purse. You need one. Trust us. You’ll never look back.

9. Sneakers with Anything (and Everything)

Sneakers have come a long way, baby, and this season, you’ll start seeing these kicks everywhere. Think of sneakers as your new spring shoe staple.

10. White Dresses

You know that “rule” about never wearing white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day? Break it.

Ooh! Beautiful: Meet Charlotte

Posted on: February 16th, 2015 by admin


Walking into Ooh! Beautiful you may have the opportunity to meet Charlotte Yeager, the newest member of the Art of Creating Team. Charlotte has moved to Charleston to enjoy a slower pace of life after making a name for herself as a makeup artist in Los Angeles, London and Chicago. She is embracing her new Mt. Pleasant lifestyle, while breathing new life into our Old Village shop. Charlotte prides herself on building special relationships with each customer and celebrates all kinds of beauty. She truly is a bright light that leaves you feeling more beautiful inside (and out ) after having a makeup or skincare consultation; even brightening your day with just a touch up!


She has implemented a new beauty menu at Ooh! Beautiful; the most surprising being the “full face airbrush”. An experience I can attest to! I was a guinea pig during the trial phase and can tell you with 100% certainty that your makeup will not melt off your face during your sweltering gorgeous summer wedding in the south!
