Stylin’ & Profilin’
Get the scoop on TROUBADOUR designer Lindsey Carter’s favorite things

For the “My Faves” section of Charleston’s March fashion issue, style director Ayoka Lucas sat down with Lindsey Carter—founder and designer of women’s contemporary brand TROUBADOUR—for a show-and-tell session in her downtown home. Lindsey shared the clothing, accessory, and home décor items she loves most while offering her take on fashion, flying lessons, and the power of perfume. Take a peek into her stylish life, then look for her on the front row at Charleston Fashion Week® (March 20-24), where she’ll be serving on the Fashion Panel of judges for the Emerging Designer Competition: East.

Speaking Volumes:
“I’ve started a collection of cocktail table books that I find inspiring. It makes me feel comfortable to have books around.”

Good Vision: “If you come over to my house at night, I’ll be wearing these Linda Farrow glasses, which are geek, but chic.”

City of Lights: “My husband and I got this ‘Fidel’ cigar-scented candle from the Cire Trudon store in Paris. All of their candles smell fantastic!”

Wear With All: “I always wear this ‘Ski Bomber’ that I designed for TROUBADOUR—it goes well with everything.”

Scents & Sensibility: “I’m addicted to perfumes. They help create the mood you’re in and complete your outfit.”

More on Lindsey:

Joy of the Job: “I love the creation element—being inspired and seeing your idea evolve into a bigger picture, into a completed piece of clothing.”

Personal Style: “It’s an accumulation of things. There’s a little surf and beach, which brings in a nautical theme, mixed with Old World romance and a bit of disheveled preppy.”

Flight Plans: “Fashion can really consume your life, so I’m trying to find other hobbies. I recently started taking flying lessons and am trying to get a scuba trip under my belt.”
