Fur Looks We Love

Gigis Bluffton - Wednesday, November 05, 2014

As the weather finally cools off in the Lowcountry, we are embracing warm looks and touches of (faux) fur all over! Because it's not truly cold enough for a big faux fur coat, we find it's best to sport beautiful fur vests and light weight knits embellished with fur trim. The look is just enough fur, just enough warm, and just perfect for Bluffton and Hilton Head.  We also love that anyone of any age can wear these looks -- they truly are "age appropriate" for anyone! 

Fur adds instant class and sophistication to any outfit. We love how these style icons look effortlessly chic and put together in their fur vests and trimmed attire.  

Anna Pepper put on some faux fur vests and fur trimmed pieces on at Gigi's Boutique this week for our weekly photo shoot. We love how polished these looks are. They're all classy but have an edgy vibe because of the fur! 

At Gigi's, we even have a great new selection of hats, gloves and scarves with fur trim! Check out these new additions to the store.  Prices range from $15 - $50. They make great gifts for friends or a real treat as an addition to your wardrobe. 

Be sure to visit our Facebook page for more information on each look that Anna Pepper has put together and also come on in and shop with us at the store! Stay warm! (Okay, it's only 60 out... but for our area, that's chilly!) 

Melinda Maria Jewelry

Gigis Bluffton - Wednesday, October 29, 2014

At Gigi's, we are not always on the lookout for the hottest trends in fashion but also jewelry!  We love it when we find a hot new line like this. New at our store this week is Melinda Maria Jewelry!  Her jewelry is worn by Julia Roberts, Christina Applegate, Vanessa Hudgins, and literally hundreds of others of celebrities. 

Much more important to us though than being worn by celebrities is the quality of this jewelry line. The gold jewelry is brushed with 14K gold so it's truly gold and won't tarnish. While substantial, the line is also really beautifully delicate.  For bracelets, there are a variety of cuffs, bangles, and chains.  For earrings, there are drops, studded ones, dangly ones and hoops.  So many great options! We can't get enough of the necklaces too. All are incredibly unique and fun to play with!  Here's a sneak of what's new in store! 

This fashion forward, affordable luxury jewelry line is just what Gigi's Girls are looking for and we are excited to bring this celebrity jeweler to the Lowcountry.  This line makes a great holiday gift, too! (Did we just say "holiday gift?"!) Why yes, yes we did!

Spring 2015 Fashion Preview

Gigis Bluffton - Wednesday, October 22, 2014

At Gigi's Boutique in Bluffton, South Carolina, we love staying on top of the latest trends. And as buyers, that's our job! Anna Pepper and Emily have just returned from the Atlanta Market where they were previewing (and of course, buying!) new clothes, shoes and accessories for Spring 2015. Emily says, "it's exciting to see what's new! Every year for the last few years has been the same -- but this year really felt different. There are a lot of new trends and styles out there!"  So what's new? 

In denim, we are seeing a LOT of distressing. Holes, frayed edges and that overall distressed look! It's also going to be "in-style" to have frayed bottoms on your jeans. (Hooray for all those that hate going to the tailor -- this Spring you can just cut them!) White denim will also be very big this Spring. 

Rompers are also huge.  We are seeing short rompers with long sleeve tops in beautiful patterns, colors and fabrics.  We are also seeing a lot of denim one pieces - in long overalls and in shorts. We snagged a few for Spring! 

We are also seeing a ton of chunky sweaters, shorts and booties.  How perfect for the Lowcountry! So we added lots of short styles! 

We couldn't help ourselves with all the great dresses for the season, too! Just a few sneaks here! 

Of course, we also stocked up on the latest shoe styles from our favorite designers! Check out what is to come in SHOES! 

Not pictured but we also stocked up on lots of new jewelry, too! We are so excited for what's to come in fashion for the Lowcountry. Can you believe it will be Spring 2015 in a few months!?!?  Leave us a comment here and let us know: what's your favorite of our fashion finds for Spring? 

Cocktail Dresses and Event Dresses

Gigis Bluffton - Friday, October 17, 2014

What are you wearing to weddings and events this season? If you have a special occasion coming up, check out Gigi's selection of formal wear.  We are loving many of our options this season.  Who says you can't wear white after Labor Day?  Or try a black skirt and black tank paired with some fun jewelry and a clutch.  Newly added styles include this purple sweetheart necklace dress and the garnet dress that ties up in the back! (Perfect for the upcoming holiday season!) 

We also love a touch of sequins in this black dress, or all out in this gold one! If you love Houndstooth, this structured jacket looks great paired with a little black dress.  Gigi's has dozens of other styles from which to choose, so be sure to come on in and check them out!

You'll also want to pick up a small clutch to go with your look.  Remember to leave that big bag at home, ladies! You don't need a big hobo when out on the town. A simple, wrist clutch will do for your phone, money and lip gloss!

We also have lots of jewelry that coordinates with your outfit, too! Be sure to shop that section, too!

Fall Fashion: Plaid

Gigis Bluffton - Thursday, October 02, 2014

All month long, we've been reporting on Fall Trends. What's hot for 2014? As we've mentioned, we are seeing a lot of Western/Aztec styles, leather detailing and dark florals. Today we are showcasing another trend in fall fashion and that's plaid! We are seeing it on celebrities everywhere. 



The look is reminiscent of those grungy 90s but this time around, it's much more polished and sophisticated. Dresses are tailored and fitted, shirts are slimmer and more flattering. You can wear plaid very casually -- with boyfriend jeans and a funky big hobo bag, or you can wear plaid in a luxe dress. It's perfect when the months get a little cooler! Of course, we have your look at Gigi's Boutique in Bluffton. See what Emily is wearing here!

For prices and more information about each piece, head on over to our Facebook page!  Also be sure to come on in and shop this weekend for these looks and other hot looks for Fall. We love playing "dress up: and will help you style the shirts and dresses too! 

Black Shoes for Fall

Leather Details in Fashion

Gigis Bluffton - Friday, September 19, 2014

Did you see our Fall 2014 Fashion Trend Report last week? We're seeing some definite trends in the latest styles. Today we're showcasing one of our favorites -- leather details. It's not really a new trend. Actually, it was popular last winter and early spring. Leather gives a sexier, edgier vibe that people are loving. You don't have to be a punk rocker to embrace leather either. Most of the pieces in our store that have leather are just small touches that really give that shirt, sweater, dress or pant an added touch. Most of the pieces are super light weight, too -- so they are great for the Lowcountry weather. 

Emily tried on a few outfits with leather trim the other day. Here's what we played around with! 

Love these outfits? Prices and info below. 

1) Camel colored leather tank is $138. Necklace is $54. (A must see in person!)

2) Sweater with patchwork leather sleeves. $90. Camel bag with tassels - $48. Leopard cuff bracelet is $33.

3) Jacket in Tobacco: Just $92

4) Leather shirt - great staple piece!  $138

5) Emily loves a good vest! This one is $60. Leather shorts are $50. Vintage sequin top is $75

So will you be adding leather trim details to your wardrobe this season? Come on in and see all the new additions to the store! 

Back to School Organizers

Gigis Bluffton - Friday, September 12, 2014

No doubt if you have school age children, they're back in school. This time of year can be mixed with such excitement, but also anxiety and dread. Gone are the lazy days of summers with zero agenda and no schedule.  With the kids back in school, after-school activities starting, and many busy schedules to coordinate, your best solution is a handy planner.  Write all activities, appointments, school days off, dance recitals, football games, practices, and more inside it.  It will be your life guide!  And who says that planner can't be as stylish as the bag you carry?  Kate Spade does! And we have her 2015, 17-month agendas at Gigi's Boutique here in Bluffton. 

We fell in love with these adorable planners. Available in medium or large, they are hard cover books with 17-months of glorious planning pages. There is a pocket folder, a 2016 year calendar (for those uber planners!), a tab with "special celebrations" (yes, please!) and an entire tab for notes.   They come in a variety of adorable styles. 

We also love that each month there is a funny or inspiring quote. You can't go wrong with:

They just look great on your desk, don't they? The medium sells for $30 and the large is $38.  A great price to get stylishly organized! We have these ones available, which one will you choose to get organized this school year? 

Come in and shop these adorable planners while they're in store at Gigi's Boutique!
