TREND TAKEOVER: DO YOU EVEN CAMO?

Roses are Red,
Violets are Blue,
We're OBSESSED with Camo,
and you should be, too!


Hey, it's CAITLIN here! I am one of Vestique's newest interns, and really needed to get something off my chest. Grab your PSL and CAMOver, we're about to talk about how to style my FAVORITE product in shop right now: "Army Brat Leggings!!"

Most of us have fallen in love with Vestique for the stylish clothes, comfort, and price! I would be doing you all a disservice if I didn't DISH MY SECRETS on how to be cozy and stylish while saving the bank.

I am currently seeking my masters at NC State, while balancing a job, this internship, and a *somewhat normal* social life. I am the epitome of your "girl on the go!"  I don't like my outfits to suffer in between the chaos, which is why the Army Brat Leggings are my wardrobe go-to!

If you are as crazy-busy as I am, you should keep reading to see how to dress up (or down) these AMAZING leggings!


Where I Wear my Army Brat Leggings:
 Yoga
 Brunch, coffee, date night
 Mountain Weekend
 Running Errands for Vestique!
   Hiding my legs because I haven't shaved this week- No shave November? No problem!

N Style Fashion Extravaganza

On October 20 and 21, we had the distinguished opportunity to participate in an event benefiting my very own hometown hospital in Concord, NC.  I was born at CMC-NorthEast 29 years ago and I had my very first college internship at the hospital in the marketing department 10 years ago (wow, that makes me feel really old!).  It's a very special place that gives the very best medical care out there! My nieces and nephews have since been delivered at CMC-NorthEast and I love going back and seeing just how far the hospital has come even from my internship days.  

The N Style Fashion Extravaganza is a annual event that features local boutiques and Vestique was chosen to participate this year along with six other stores.  The show is so successful that they can't even fit everyone into just one night -- they separate it into two nights; you can come out either Monday or Tuesday.  

The money goes to support the CMC-NorthEast Foundation and raised over $83,000 this year! Thank you, CMC, for asking us to be involved this year.  We had a great time at the event.  



My helper for the night, Daphne.  One of our awesome sales associates at our East Blvd. location in Charlotte!  



All of the models for the event are members of the local community and are actively involved in the hospital's foundation, or actually work at the hospital! 


We liked the blue lighting :) Had to take a quick runway selfie. 


The men's runway portion is always a big hit. They do a little dance for the crowd and everyone gets really into their moves! 






I love coming to events in Concord -- it means I am able to see my mom, sister-in-law and friends from home!

Stylist of the Week: Adair

My style changes from season to season. This fall I'm obsessed with layering. A wise intern once told me that layering is like Instagram filters.. the more the merrier!  My favorite layering piece is our 'Evening Better' dress! This piko style dress is gorgeous as a stand alone or paired with a few layers.  I love the idea of pairing it with a trendy kimono for a night out, or a big chunky sweater for extra warmth! Check out my top three styling picks for this dress! 


I like to break up an all black outfit with a pop of color. This Electric Feel Cardigan has voltage running through the threads. Keeping me pretty and warm! 


 My boyfriend lives in Charleston so I spend many weekend down there {can you blame me? It's Charleston!} This is my go-to outfit for an night out on King Street. I love an all black outfit, but this Meet Me in Malibu Kimono gives a twist to my traditional black on black look. 


I've been a vegetarian for the majority of my life so I'm loving our collection of vegan leather this season! Our newest, Raw Edges Moto Jacket is a fall must! The quilted detailing on the sleeves {another fall must} gives the jacket a little something extra to stand out of the crowd. I love the idea of mixing neutrals. There is absolutely nothing wrong with mixing brown and black! Tie the two together with a gold statement necklace

Get this adorable LBD and shop all of my looks now online or in a store near you

Boutique Spotlight: Vestique Greenville



Vestique Greenville, or as we call it 'g-vegas!', is located only two miles from downtown Greenville, SC. Being just off the historic and beautiful Augusta Road area, we love that our shoppers are a range of age and diversity! We're the perfect spot for an afternoon off campus. Come and grab lunch from Panera and hit Vestique and other local shops like Copper Penny, Kate Carlyle (unique gifts) and Labels (upscale consignment), to name a few.

The Upstate isn't far from Clemson University, so we have a lot of Tiger fans that frequent our store. We are always stocked with purple and orange for our Clemson fans, but we always have some garnet and black around for the Gamecock ladies as well! Mothers and daughters often come shopping together in this location and both leave with an outfit -- something we love and pride ourselves in. There really is something for every shopper at vestique!

If you live in the Upstate, or are just passing through, be sure you stop by our Greenville store and say hello. We love our little corner of McDaniel Village and would be happy to help you pick out the perfect outfit!

Our Family: Lauren Flack (Director of Retail Operations); Erin Solesbee (Assistant Manager); Molly Armstrong, Caitlin Baker, Kathryn Sheets-Walker (Senior Stylists); Shelley Williams, Claire Carter (Junior Stylists)

Recap: Wine, Women & Shoes


Thursday night I had the pleasure of joining several other local boutiques for a fundraiser and fashion show, 'Wine, Women and Shoes,' produced by the always fabulous, Effie Loukas. Wine, Women and Shoes is a fundraising event benefitting Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina

My favorite part of the event {besides the amazing fashions on the runway} is by far the 'Best in Shoe' portion. During this part of the event, show-goers who feel they have the best shoes in the category of flats, wedges and pumps work the runway and a winner of each category is chosen. It's so much fun to watch these ladies work it in their shoes and to see the fabulous shoes that come out for this special night of giving. Each year the shoes get taller, brighter and more fancy! The competition is certainly steep for the 'Best in Shoe.' 

Vestique, along with several other local boutiques, worked the runway in some of the hottest trends this Fall. There was something for everyone on the runway! 






The event took place at Felix Sabates Mercedes of South Charlotte -- a really unique and fun venue for this event! 'Shoes Guys' walked around and served ladies wine and treats on platters, plus some awesome shoes to drool over.


Thank you to these four ladies for rocking the runway in Vestique! You did an awesome job! And thank you to Effie for asking us to be a part of the event again this year.  We can't wait until next year!

Vestique Featured on Southern Curls and Pearls

We love our blogger friends and Caitlin is one of the most stylish and sweet bloggers you'll ever meet. I first met Caitlin when she shopped with us at our Greenville store and was still working in the corporate world. She has since moved to Charlotte, where she shops in our Dilworth location, and is a full-time blogger at Southern Curls and Pearls.  

You may remember from this post when we had Caitlin and McKenna join us for a Girls' Night Out event. Caitlin picked out an adorable outfit at the event and has blogged about her look here.  Check it out!  

Thanks for your sweet words, Caitlin!
