AV E N U E I N V O G U E What if there were no fashion trends and you could wear com- fortable clothes that make you feel beautiful? What if you could get rid of all the things in your closet that you are supposed to like, but don't? What if you were free to create your own unique style? For women especially, this would be a revolution, and there's no better person than Sarah Berrard, owner of Mount Pleasant's 7 Gypsy boutique, to start it. Berrard is one of those people who simply cannot stop making things. Everything she sees, she re-invents in her head. "I love to create. It doesn't matter what it is," she says. Her latest work of art is 7 Gypsy, a clothing boutique that's a ka- leidoscope of colorful women's clothing set against a backdrop of whimsical furnishings hand- picked by Berrard. The store is tucked into the Shops of Mount Pleasant, which is an easy in-and-out with plenty of parking. It's worth a visit just to take in 7 Gypsy's interior design. On one wall, a bleached longhorn cow skull sports a wreath of soft pink roses. A vintage cabinet, now painted hot pink, holds jewelry. Next to it stands a primitive table with a display of T-shirts imprinted with '80s song lyrics. The store's character is a blend of Charleston- style souk with a hint of Texas and a dash of LA.
