Styling & Profiling

If you don't know this girl, you should get to know her.  Holly Julian is the winner of The Bachelor Pad 2 and was on The Bachelor.  She is one of the sweetest and funniest girls you will ever meet... plus she LOVES vestique!  We had a little dress up party with her at our Greenville location and it was so much fun.  I almost forgot I was working (which happens a lot around here) and laughed so hard my cheeks hurt.  It was the best kind of day with the best kind of friend.  

Holly used to work at a boutique in LA back in the day so she felt right at home styling ladies at vestique.  The girls loved getting to be styled by Holly, and Bogart loved hitching a ride in her adorable bike basket! 

As you'll see in the photos following this one, the theme of the night was definitely twinning!  Every time a girl went in to try something on, Holly would jump in and try it on too.  It was hilarious when they came out of the dressing room to model!

Thank you to everyone who stopped by for the event and stay tuned for even more styling events to come here in Greenville and our other vestique stores as well!  We love you, Holly!

The Buyers' Picks: Pre-Fall Essentials

We're obsessed with all of our new summer to fall collection but here are our top picks, the essentials you NEED this season!

Caroline's Picks

"It was tough to only choose a few favorites from our fall collection because I'm dying over every single piece - but out of everything, my top choice would probably have to be our 'Posh in Paisley Kimono.' I love it's versatility as it can be worn with cutoffs for a laid back look, or dressed up with our 'Light Wash Boyfriend Jeans.' My favorite accessory is our new floppy camel hat. Throw on some gold jewelry and you've got a look that will easily transition from summer to fall!"

Morgan's Picks

"The Wash Me Away button down is hands down my favorite piece right now. I've found myself wearing it and re-wearing it. It's so soft and comfortable and looks great with almost any bottom. In this look, I've dressed it up with the accordion-style shorts, heels and my go-to boho necklace of the moment. This outfit will easily transition into fall as the weather cools."

Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Williams

This past weekend we celebrated one of our Greenville girls, Shelley, and her now husband, Nathan, as they tied the knot!  The ceremony was so sweet and the reception was crazy-fun.  Shelley has worked for us for over a year now and we've loved every second of getting to know this sweet girl.  Shelley just so happens to be the sister of Mickey, who is the fiance of Amanda, our Columbia store manager!  What a great family, right?!  

Check out some of the photos of all of us Vestique Greenville girls at the wedding.  Of course we are all rocking Vestique! 

Molly's dress is sold out, but there are a still a few of my 'Be Delighted' maxi available in lilac here.  It's on major SALE for $15!  

The happy and gorgeous couple, Mr. and Mrs. Williams! 

A lot of ladies in a little photo booth. 

OOTD-The Cool Down

I don't know about you, but I've thoroughly enjoyed this week's weather in Charlotte. It has been 80, sunny and pretty much perfect. Reminds me of Southern California weather, but as my dad said, without the threat of an earthquake. Good point, pops.

Perfection always comes with a price though. Aside from the fact that all I want to do when Mother Nature gives us weeks like these is be outside basking in the sunshine, I also never quite know how to dress. It's chilly in the morning and straight up hot in the afternoons. I think I want to finally break in my new flares until about 2 p.m. when I'm taking the trash out and sweating my tail feather off. So, I've put together a look that will ensure you don't look under dressed when it's 65 degrees at 9 a.m. and aren't sweating like a thief in church by mid afternoon.

The Up My Sleeve Crop is one of my favorite transition pieces. I can wear it now styled with shorts just like it is below or rock it all the way through the winter with my high-waisted bell bottoms and moto jacket. The cut outs on the arms give it just the right amount of edge.

These shorts, y'all. They are everything. The Shake it Off Shorts, named after my girl Tay Tay's new jam, are just begging to come live in your closet. They fit perfectly and can be styled a million different ways. This is a pair that looks great with a tank or a sweater--and anything in between. I can already see them with patterned tights once temps really start to plummet.

Last but certainly not least...the bag. Ohh this bag. For those of you who don't know me, I'm a sucker for anything fringe. And this little Fringe Cross Body is to die for. Release your inner hippy and throw that bad boy in your shopping cart. You won't be sorry you did.

You know how I said earlier that perfection always comes with a price? How does $97.50 sound? Yep. You can take home this OOTD for less than a Benjamin. But hurry, styles and sizes won't last.

Toddler Tiquers

One of my greatest joys in life is being an aunt.  I am fortunate enough to have two beautiful nieces and three handsome nephews.  These babies are my world (besides my own fur-babies -- holler it's National Dog Day!) and I snuggle and spoil them each and every chance I get. 

Last Friday, my mom (better known as Granna) brought two of my little cuties by the Charlotte store to see me.  Just one smile and a hug and my day was made.  I love how toddlers are little balls of energy (probably because I don't have one) and these two are no exception.  They ran around the back room looking for toys and boy did we find one.  Talk about hours of fun... who knew just how many things a box can be!  

Lawson enjoys using his box as a rocket ship.  He is very imaginative for a 3-year-old.  

Havilland chose to use her box as a garage.  She is a brilliant 1.5-year-old.   

We decided to use the boxes for shipping out these two cuties to two very lucky shoppers!  ...just kidding.  But we did enjoy pretending!  Thanks for stopping by Granna, Havilland and Lawson.  I am blessed and SO lucky to be your aunt.
