TODU’s ”Dilly Dress” with Liberty London floral-print skirt ($345) and ”Hattie Dress” in plum ($325)

Natural Glow
Whether you want to wake up your face with a subtle flush or layer color for contoured cheeks, the easy-to-blend pressed blushes from RMS Beauty have you covered. Long-lasting shades include “Moon Cry,” a rich plum wine tone; “Lost Angel,” a warm coral hue; and “Crushed Rose,” a modern bright pink. For bonus hydration, owner and makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift infuses these creamy pressed powders with buriti fruit oil. The Charleston-based cosmetic line relies on organic, cruelty-free formulations without preservatives, chemicals, or GMOs, so your conscience can stay rosy, too. Find the goods locally at Stox and Co. in Mount Pleasant or AILLEA downtown. [rmsbeauty.com

Wear with All
Do you opt for street-ready fashion or prefer more comfortable clothing? How about both? Created by Charlestonian Genny Cox with Lowcountry ladies in mind, online retailer TODU introduces the "Modern Housedress." This closet must-have balances funtionality (think deep pockets and washable luxury fabrics) with femininity (i.e., a flattering cut and built-in bralette). With six hand-stitched stylers designed to transition from one season to the next, these dresses are an investment that you can pratically live in every day of the week. [shoptodu.com]

Harbor Freight
Sarah Winecoff's articitc eye shines through the refined collection of housewares, hand-made gifts, and eco-friendly goods stocked at the freshly opened Wharf Market, nestled near the pineapple fountain in the historic French Quarter. Here, the illustrator proffers note cards and art from her stationery line, Slow Poke Press, alongside an array of local favorites such as treats and pastries by Christopher Chocolatier and candles from Rewined and MacBailey's.
