A throwback to the roaring 20's style flapper dresses, Drop Waist dresses look best on lean, athletic bodies that don't have too many curves in the hip area. The key to pulling off a Drop Waist style dress is to ensure that it's not hugging you. This dress is best worn when it is able to hang freely on your body.Shop Now
Once you know the kind of waist that fits your body type, it's time to find your shape. A few of our most popular dress shapes include:
Unless you're feeling extra sassy, chances are you're wearing a top at this very moment. Tops are garments that cover the top half of your body.

Sometimes called broadcloth tops, poplins have classic characteristics and are often woven with an over/under weave. This kind of weave gives more substance to your top while also giving you room to breathe. Poplin shirts are typically soft and smooth, and are great for everyday business attire, some formal occasions, and for certain ceremonies. Sweet and feminine, our Bruna poplin eyelet bib top features ruffles at the sleeves and an eyelet lace yoke at the front. Pair your poplin with your favorite pair of shorts or jeans for a contemporary, relaxed look.Shop Now
Great for wearing solo or layered over a camisole or tank top, wrap tops are lightweight, versatile, and great for many different occasions. Wrap tops go well with jeans, maxi dresses, and high-waisted jeans or trousers. Our V-Neck Wrap SLV Top by Jayden is uber-popular at Copper Penny and the perfect choice for dressing down or dressing up. The choice is yours!Shop Now
For a dose of feminine fashion, be sure you add an off-the-shoulder top to your everyday wardrobe. A casual, sexy choice, off-the-shoulder tops have unique necklines that cut across your upper arms and chest, leaving your shoulders bare. The result is a flirty flash of skin, which elongates your neck and gives a relaxed, "daytime casual" look. Our Nola off-the-shoulder top pairs perfectly with shorts or even a flowy skirt and is hand-woven in Spain using Jacquard fabric.Shop Now
Who doesn't love a good tank top?! Tank tops are lightweight, versatile, and equally great for lounging in the yard or running errands on weekends. Tank tops lend an air of simplicity to your outfit and can be styled in endless ways. Take our Velvet Heart Victory Tank, for instance. This tank is a refreshing update on our classic sleeveless tank top, complete with fray details and a scoop neck. Throw in the fact that it's machine washable, and you have a wardrobe winner.Shop Now
When choosing a women's top for your outfit, you have to consider how comfortable, confident, and beautiful you will feel. The best way to feel your best in an outfit is to make sure it fits correctly. To get started, you'll want to take your measurements.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – Ringing in the new year with the pop, sizzle, and bang of colorful fireworks is a New Year’s Eve tradition — but they technically are not allowed in every Lowcountry municipality.

City of North Charleston – Setting off fireworks is legal year-round from 9:00 a.m. until 11:30 p.m., and on holidays like New Year’s Eve and the 4th of July, you can set them off until 1:00 a.m.

Fireworks are allowed between 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 a.m. on New Year’s Eve in unincorporated Dorchester County. There are no laws set in unincorporated Charleston County.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - Homeowners in a Goose Creek neighborhood are looking for a solution to the flooding that affects their properties every time it rains.
Kristen Gilliam has lived in the Boulder Bluff Neighborhood in Goose Creek for about 15 years. She has a home around the corner from her parents and they both see their properties fill up with sitting water each time it rains. It’s not just the yards threateningly close to their homes; she says it’s also the streets.
“It doesn’t even have to be heavy rain. It does get very bad in some areas, especially down one of the roads here. Water Oak Drive and Lucy Drive itself. They do tend to flood to where people have to literally turn around and take another route. The neighborhood tends to shut down,” Gilliam says.
She says the flooding is affecting some of the homes, and she knows people who are moving out and say the water is a big reason why.
“Like on this road alone, we actually have a bunch of vacant homes right now because they’ve left. A lot of people have had damages happen in the past year. Like my next next-door neighbor, they’re gone. A couple of other owners have just left their homes,” Gilliam says.
A road over in Boulder Bluff, Leslie Powell and her family have lived in their house for three years.
“The first time that we noticed the flooding was like, maybe a month after we moved in. We were in the house hanging out and then looked out the window and our whole yard was underwater. And we talked to our neighbors and they said the flooding hadn’t been that bad since Hugo and since then three years ago, it happens throughout the summer. It happens every couple of weeks or so,” Powell says.
She says their property is a little downhill and dips down from the road so their house is built up from the ground. But, they still have issues with water getting into their crawl space and water getting into their cars.
“We have to move the cars there’s been damage under our house and water has gotten into our cars before when we’ve been out of town. And so it’s been going on for at least three years now,” Powell says.
The women say the neighbors talk amongst themselves and some have individually tried calling the city and county to get answers. But so far, they haven’t been able to get in contact with the right person, and say they feel bounced around with no answers.
“There’s clearly a bigger issue that needs to be addressed and I don’t know what that is. So I don’t know the right questions to ask,” Powell says.
Gilliam acknowledges that making sure drains are clear from trash or tree trimmings is the responsibility of the neighbors.
“I know the neighborhood has a lot of debris and trash and it is our responsibility to also clean up the neighborhood. But I believe is the county or the city, whatever you live in I feel like it’s their responsibility to make sure that our trenches or ditches are actually trenched out and they’re not being built up with a bunch of debris,” Gilliam says.
The city of Goose Creek directed concerns for this area to the Berkeley County Stormwater Department. Berkeley County Stormwater Department says they are looking into the service history and plans for the neighborhood and will provide them when available.

GOOSE CREEK — The Carnes Crossroads community is going to take “from farm to table” literally as it adds a farm to its amenities.
With the addition of an 11-acre farm, Carnes Crossroads will turn into an agrihood — a community or neighborhood that integrates agriculture.
Gerrit Albert, division president of South Carolina and Georgia for Freehold Communities — the developer of Carnes Crossroads — said Freehold has been learning how to make a farm “part of the DNA of the community.” He said his company first did this in 2017 with a community in Florida called Arden, where they incorporated a 5-acre farm.
Carnes Crossroads will have a farm twice as large as Arden’s, as it’s a fast-growing community. It currently has 1,000 houses, but Goose Creek spokesman Frank Johnson previously told The Post and Courier another 300 are expected to be built each year. Once complete, Carnes Crossroads will have just under 5,000 houses, he said.
While Freehold is not the first group to incorporate agriculture in its planning, Tripp Eldridge — the agrihood expert for Carnes Crossroads — said the company has differentiated itself by being the first to create an agrihood where residents of the community can receive a share of their harvest.
In addition to the farm, a barn will be built where residents can pick up their share of crops. Albert said the barn will include for sale other local proprietor items like honey. If people want to buy more produce after collecting their share, they can do so in the barn.
Eldridge said 11 acres of farmland will be divided into two locations. The “main farm” will be centrally located in the community, and it will be more experiential with “you pick” crops like blueberries, blackberries and figs, as well as orchard fruit trees.
Just down the road will be a larger production farm mostly featuring field crops. Eldridge said vegetable production will be a big focus there.
The agrihood will have a head farmer and opportunities for residents to volunteer, helping to tend to the farm, Eldridge said.
Albert said the concept promotes good health in several ways. It’s meant to be sustainable and to produce organic vegetables. Perhaps more importantly, he said, is that it can build human connections and social cohesion, helping to ensure the community’s longevity.
“You can’t escape connecting with people, because when you go to the barn you’re interacting with the farmers and you interact with other property owners,” Albert said.
Eldridge said residents can expect to pick up several different kinds of fruits, vegetables and herbs. Some of these crops include beets, radishes, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, basil, parsley, thyme, blueberries and blackberries.
The farm and its barn aren’t the only features being constructed. Several other amenities planned for the community include a pool, wellness center, playground and lake house that will serve as an event venue and gathering space.
Mayor Greg Habib said he’s excited for this unique and inspiring addition to the Carnes Crossroads community.
“The vision that brought this addition to Carnes Crossroads aligns with the values of Goose Creek, and our focus on sustainability and quality of life,” Habib said. “The importance of creating a community that brings people together and enhances their overall well-being cannot be overstated. That’s what we’re about in Goose Creek.”
The Carnes Crossroads community broke ground on Oct. 25, and Albert hopes for the farm and barn to be open by fall 2024, with the rest of the amenities available in the spring of 2025.
New Year’s Eve fireworks will light up the skies on Folly Beach as they have for the past 14 years, but with one slight change: The pyrotechnic show will take place five hours earlier than usual.
The annual Flip Flop Drop, a beloved tradition that rings in the New Year in the most funky Folly way, coincides with a high tide this year. In anticipation of this, officials have bumped the beach fireworks display from midnight to 7 p.m. Dec. 31.
Both the New Year’s Eve fireworks show and the July Fourth fireworks show are organized by the Folly Association of Business. Kelly Travers, an event coordinator for FAB, said the call to move the show up happened in the summertime, following the Fourth of July fireworks show that never was. The Independence Day display was canceled because of high tides.
“High tide is slated to be at 11:06 p.m. on Sunday, which doesn’t really bode well for fireworks at midnight, especially on a very eroded beachfront,” Travers said.
The launch site for the fireworks cannot be within 280 feet of a residential structure. There will not be enough sand to accommodate this radius or spectators on the beach for the traditional midnight fireworks display, Folly Beach Municipal Clerk Wes Graham said. There is “limited to no” beach access during high tide, he said.
“Personally, I love fireworks. I get the understanding of wanting our fireworks, but we will just have to work around the tides,” Graham said.
Moving the show up several hours was preferable to canceling it or rescheduling on another day. Plus, there’s a silver lining in an earlier show, Travers said. Families with young children can enjoy the evening display without breaking bedtime. The Flip Flop Drop will still take place on Center Street at midnight Dec. 31, for the night owls eager to celebrate the New Year.
“We’re excited to try something new and at 7 p.m., it’s more of a family-friendly event where people can bring out their kids to watch the display, as opposed to them being up at night. We’re kind of excited for a new take on the fireworks this year,” Travers said.
