Vestique Stylist of the Week: Ashley

It’s feeling like fall in NC and I couldn’t be happier! I love early fall clothing because I can mix together my favorite summer trends with new fall styles. My favorite outfit lately is a solid romper that I can play up with accessories. Our Back in Black Romper with a flannel tied around my waist, booties and a headband is a great casual fall outfit for those days when it’s still 80 degrees in the South. Shop all our rompers here.

I’m a firm believer that your outfit can change your entire mood for the day, and this outfit makes me feel like I can take on the day with only one cup of coffee instead of three. From doing photo shoots in the morning and social media in the afternoon, it’s hard for me to find an outfit that can last the entire day without feeling uncomfortable. I go for solids, neutrals, and soft materials before anything else because there are so many different ways to wear them! 

It's all in the details

Accessories can make or break your outfit. It can take you from day to night or casual to dressy in a second which makes it my favorite thing to use when I'm styling. I love our new statement necklaces (necklace shown available in store only), bracelets and headbands. The best part about my job is I get to style our models and help our customers create a brand new look with different accessories! 
Shop my favorite accessories online and in stores now all under $50! 

xoxo, Ashley

Boot Scootin' Boogie

Ahhhh it's feeling like fall, y'all! My favorite thing about my favorite season [besides the changing leaves, football (read: tailgating), and pumpkin spice lattes] is hands-down the fashion. I live for boots and booties and will live IN them for the next 4-5 months. Luckily, we've scored some great boots this year and priced them so affordably that you'll want to snag more than one pair! 

Check out these adorable looks we've put together with our brand new boots! If you stop by one of our stores this week, you might just see me sporting one (or all three) of these outfits. I'm ready to kick off my sandals and zip up my boots! Who's with me?

Look 1: Free Spirit
Fringe, a Captain Planet necklace and a kimono... nothing could be more vestique!  Shop this entire look here

Look 2: Keep It Cozy
Got a mountain weekend planned or just want something cozy to throw on -- this one has your name all over it. Shop this entire look here

Look 3: Steel Got It
Wear this one bare-legged or with tights or leggings for a chic look with just a touch of edge!  Shop this entire look here.

29 For Life

Today is a special day around the tique. One of our own is celebrating her 29th year on this planet and we couldn't be more thankful to have her as part of our team!

Last night we celebrated Lauren. And we celebrated hard. Think wine, framily, cocktails, delicious dinner, sprinkle cake and lots of birthday serenades.

Let me tell you a little bit about Lauren. She's just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the out {I mean that with all of my heart}. She's one of the hardest working individuals you'll ever would stay at her stores all night if there's a job to be done. She makes everyone laugh even on our darkest days. She's selfless, smart as a whip and over-the-top organized [read: slightly OCD]. She's charismatic, driven...I could go on all day. I could tell you how she once stopped 6 lanes of traffic to save a stray dog. Or about the time that she offered to drive 5 hours to spend the night with me when I was having a rough day. Or about how she cares so deeply for her employees that she truly feels their pain when they are struggling in their personal lives. Let me suffice it to say...Lauren is a damn good boss and an even better friend--we're all lucky to know her.

The Perfect Leather Jacket

The Perfect Leather Jacket

The most popular staple of fall and winter style, the leather jacket, has been a symbol of edgy, bad-boy fashion since the early 1900's. Now years later the leather jacket is known as a go-to accessory for many fashionistas to add a little spice to their daily outfits. We are no different than them, and our newest addition to the vestique wardrobe is something you won't want to miss out on. 
We've broken down the top five ways to wear our Meet Me At Midnight Moto Jacket with some of our favorite fall looks. First on the list is the classic boyfriend jean (shown above), as a casual addition to your already casual outfit. Throw on a neutral tee or top, add a unique necklace and boyfriend jeans and you're ready to go. We love this look for an easy day time outfit than can keep up with your busy schedule. Shop the look 

Following second is what we call the "James Dean Look." For those of who you don't watch old Hollywood movies, this style is minimalism combined with edgy flair. Black and white will always be in style, so wear this jacket with a white tank, black jeans, and minimal jewelry for a classic look just like Blondie. Shop the look

Tis' the season for flannel! The time has finally arrived to pull out your old, or new from vestique, flannels from the back of the closet and throw them under this jacket. Flannel and leather is all the rage this fall, so pair these two pieces together and you're ready to hit the ground running wherever your week takes you. Shop the look

So we've covered the three casuals, what about dressing it up for a night on the town? We've got the perfect outfit for your next girl's night out- throw this jacket on with a basic top and leather shorts for an edgy bad-to-the-bone look (shop the look). And don't worry, adding a basic top and minimal jewelry balances the outfit and keeps you from looking like Catwoman. Or for a date night look, throw it over your favorite fit and flare dress paired with booties and a clutch for an outfit that will definitely turn a few heads (shop the look).

Shop all these outfits online and in stores now and grab this great leather jacket before it's gone, and be sure to tag us in your pictures of how you style your favorite fall outfits! #vestiquechic #fallfashion

Go Shorty

Some folks say you can't wear shorts through the fall but we are here to tell ya that oh yes ma'am you most certainly can.  We've put together three HOT looks with shorts (and one skirt!) to show how to transition your shorts straight from summer to fall -- and even in the same day!

Look 1: Hello Leather
A little leather can add such a sexy edge to any look and we love these shorts just for that reason!  This sweater is everything and speaks for itself, so go ahead and toss that puppy in your shopping cart and don't think twice.  Add booties or wedges and off you go!  Shop this entire look here

Look 2: Pretty Pleats
A denim vest can go with so much and we love it paired with these black pleat shorts.  These shorts wear nicely with or without tights and this outfit is the perfect transitional piece for our crazy unpredictable weather!  If it gets cool at night, switch out the vest for a jacket and you're good to go! Shop this entire look by clicking here.  

Look 3: Let Me PerSUEDE You
It may not be shorts, but it's the cutest skirt on the block.  Pair with a tank tucked in at the waist and one of our favorite fall suede jackets (you'll get a TON of wear out of this one).  This outfit will take you from day to night and anywhere in between.  Add tights when it's cooler out, booties or boots. This would even look adorable with ballet flats.  Shop this entire look by clicking here
