Best Dressed Guest: 10 Summer Wedding Looks

By Shayna Seid


My hometown of Charleston, SC, is the #2 wedding destination in the country (second only to Las Vegas). As a result, my friend (and fellow Vandy alum) Stacy Smallwood, the founder and owner of Hampden Clothing—a designer boutique on King Street—has women constantly coming into her shop searching for a look that will get them dubbed best dressed guest (think Carrie Bradshaw in her pale pink bubble dress at Bitsy von Muffling’s wedding in the Hamptons). “The thing I hear most often from women searching for a dress is: ‘I want to be able to wear it to something more than just one wedding,’ ” explains Smallwood. So, with versatility being the name of the game, we’ve asked Stacy to choose her favorite pieces currently available at Hampden and explain in her own words why they’ll ensure you take home the BDG title.
