We have a huge selection of women's dresses in South Mount Pleasant, SC, from stylistic sheath dresses to drop-waist styles that will make your girlfriends jealous.
These dresses are made to fit your waist and then gradually flare out towards the hem. A-line dresses are excellent for minimizing thighs, hips, and midsections while pulling the eyes to your bust. This style of dress is a great fit for almost any body type. There's a reason why so many brides settle on A-Line dresses for their big day! With plenty of varieties, this is a kind of dress that you can wear again and again.Shop Now
Like the A-Line style, empire dresses are made to fit through your bust. Rather than creating a distinctly angular shape like the A-Line, the Empire style flows from the bust down. This is another kind of dress that fits many body types. From curvy to apple body shapes, the Empire draws focus to your bust and minimizes everything else. For lovely ladies on the shorter side, this style defines your silhouette, especially if you choose a maxi length dress.Shop Now
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.

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.

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.

Some may recognize the Old Village Historic District in Mount Pleasant by its extravagant historic homes, stunning views of the Charleston Harbor from Alhambra Hall, or even the neighborhood’s infamous Pitt Street, which was even featured on the latest Netflix hit “Outer Banks.”
But did you know that situated in Old Village is the oldest home in Mount Pleasant, which is actually the home that gave Mount Pleasant its name?
Built in 1755 on 67 acres of land by Charleston City Treasurer Jacob Motte, the Hibben House served as headquarters for the British during the Revolutionary War. Motte called the land that this home was situated on Mount Pleasant, which, as you can guess, gave way to the name of the town today.
Rumor has it that General William Moultrie (yes, the one Fort Moultrie is named after) and others were held captive in this home during the war. Yet, William Moultrie isn’t the only prominent person said to have been in the Hibben House. The General’s memoirs also place Lord Cornwallis and General Patterson in this home during June of 1780.
In 1803, the plantation changed hands from Jacob Motte to James Hibben, who would go on to design the entire village of Mount Pleasant. Once the plantation was purchased, Hibben divided the land into 35 separate lots on five streets, which became the town. Fun fact: after subdividing the land, Hibben decided to provide 10 of his children plots of land. (He had 12 kids in total, but two did not survive to maturity.)
Amongst other influential historical individuals to reside at 111 Hibben Street falls Petrona Royall McIver, who served as historian for the town of Mount Pleasant and even published a book called “History of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina” in 1960.
Whew, have you had enough of today’s history lesson? Let’s fast forward through the 200-something years of history that we touched on to take a look at the home today.
The Hibben House is now a frequent stop on the list for tourists, especially Segway tours that ride by the house numerous times per day. Whether it be the hundreds of years of history within the walls of the home or its well-preserved original details – such as the grandeur rectangular columns with recessed paneling and the hipped metal roof – this home is sure to catch your eye.

When you ask Charleston residents about their favorite places to eat, Page’s Okra Grill comes up often. Although technically in the nearby suburb of Mount Pleasant, Page’s has cemented itself as a standout restaurant in a city full of destination-worthy dining. Once you visit, it’s easy to see why. The restaurant combines down-home charm with an irresistible menu of elevated but familiar Southern staples.
Many of the dishes were created by co-owner and chef Ashleigh Sbrochi, who dreamed up the menu with the help of her father, Tony Page. She also consulted the hundreds of cookbooks she has read over the years, including her copy of Charleston Receipts, before opening her spot in 2006.
Almost immediately, locals began buzzing about the food. “We’ve been super lucky to have this community,” says Chase Page, part of Page’s founding family. “We have people still eating with us today who were here when we started over 15 years ago.”
When the weather is balmy, Page’s expansive covered patio is the hottest spot in town. If you’re just visiting and have time for only one meal, weekend brunch is the way to go. It typically includes live music, so you’ll have something to tap your toes to. We suggest starting with Page’s Sampler Platter (fried spring rolls filled with barbecue and pimiento cheese, fried green tomatoes with roasted red pepper-and-peach jam, and a shrimp bacon-chipotle cheese dip). Follow that with Page’s Famous Chicken & Waffle (loaded with Cheddar cheese, sage sausage, roasted corn, and jalapeños) or Ashleigh’s Shrimp & Grits (the grits take shape as fried Cheddar cheese cakes and come topped in a smoked andouille sausage cream sauce).
As Page’s Okra Grill expands its fan base, the restaurant is finding even more opportunities to feed the community. After a two-year stint with a food truck in Summerville, they plan to open a brick-and-mortar location there this year. And if their Mount Pleasant outpost is any indication, there will be a whole new batch of regulars to keep the business thriving for many years to come.

South Carolina is home to one of the best pizza shops in the nation — so get ready to dig in, new rankings show.
Toni’s Detroit Style Pizza in Mount Pleasant made a list of top 100 places to get a slice, according to the restaurant review website Yelp.
To make the list, Yelp said it studied pizza-related businesses across the United States and “ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews,” according to a report published Feb. 8.
Of all the pizza shops considered nationwide, Toni’s earned a No. 25 spot in the rankings. While the business is near Charleston, the restaurant said it aims to give customers a taste of the Motor City.
Toni’s specializes in Detroit-style pizza, which are cheesy pies cooked in square or rectangular pans. It’s believed that the inventor of the dish “got his initial batch of pans from a friend who worked in a factory that used the pans for spare parts,” according to the michigan.org travel website.
At Toni’s, some customers say they can’t get enough of the thick crust loaded with toppings, helping the business to score 5 out of 5 stars on Yelp. Customers are also fans of the customer service, something the restaurant prides itself on, according to its website.
Three Detroit natives — Steve Hopkins and Toni and Pete Sahutske — came up with the idea for the shop, which also serves appetizers, salads and pasta.
“Through his many years in the business Pete has perfected the art of Detroit style pizza-making and Toni prides herself on offering the kind of first rate service her customers have come to expect,” the restaurant said on its website. “You won’t find anything else like this — crispy deep dish crust, unique brick cheese, baked in authentic blue steel pizza pans.”
The shop even received recognition from some Michiganders and people who are new fans of the Detroit style, according to its Yelp page.
While the shop has customers craving its pies, South Carolina residents have been curious about another pizza place. Last year, data showed Pizza Hut was the state’s most-searched pizza brand on Google Maps.
And in 2020, a study of cellphone data found Marco’s was the pizza chain people in the Palmetto State went to more than any other, McClatchy News reported.
On the more recent Yelp list, the overall top-ranked shop was Cheese Board Pizza in Berkeley, California.
