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

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!

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!

Vestique Stylist of the Week: Lauren

It's not hard at all for me to pick out my favorite looks from this past week of new arrivals. We've got in SO many awesome items that honestly, my wallet is hurting, but my heart is so happy. I love Fall styles and dressing for this season is my absolute favorite. I think I would be perfectly content living in Fall fashion year 'round. Who's with me?

My style is very simple chic. I like to pair edgy pieces with more simple and classic styles so that I am able to get more mileage out of {at least a portion} of my clothes! Pairing a basic black romper with a statement jacket, vest or kimono is sorta my thing. Don't forget the accessories. I want jewels and lots of them -- layer 'em and stack 'em -- that's my motto.  

Here are my two favorite looks from this weeks' newbies... but let's be honest, there are plenty more looks to love online at! 

The 'On Trend Cardigan in Gray' is so cozy and stylish. We had this beauty in tan, but I was waiting for the gray because I love to mix black and gray together. It has arrived and I've already worn it out and got SO MANY compliments! At only $46, this is a steal for such a chic piece. Adding a hat to this look when out and about amps up the edge and gives you lots of fashion cool points {at least in my book!}. Hats are the perfect accessory, especially for a bad hair day, so it's always nice to have one on hand and ours are the cutest! 

Details on this look:

Don't particularly like wearing dresses to special events or parties? Here's your answer! This sweater is the perfect piece to dress up. Pair with black leather leggings or jeggings, heels or booties, and you've got a dressy look that will put others to shame! I'm not a 'dress girl' and prefer pants or shorts whenever possible. For that reason, I find our 'Play it Loud Sweater' completely necessary! The bold colors and sequin embellishments give it an air of fancy that will leave party-goers jealous of your comfy look and warm legs.

Details on this look:
Play it Loud Sweater - $55
The New Classic Jeggings - $54
Night at Gatsby's Necklace - $24.50
Too Much To Handle Clutch - $38.50

Recap: Pretty in Pink Fashion Show

Last Friday we had an amazing show at Bubble Charlotte where a portion of the proceeds went to the Pretty in Pink Foundation for Breast Cancer Awareness. We had an awesome turnout and raised some serious cash for a serious cause. Thank you to all who came out and for your support. 

Thank you also to our models who worked the runway two nights in a row (remember this show the night before!) and the Bubble for having us. Lastly, a big thank you to Christina Childers of Christina Hair Design for the awesome runway hair on all of the models. You always kill it! 

Check out some of our favorite photos of the night below! 

A BIG Happy Birthday to Caroline A., who worked the runway for us even on her birthday!
