Last Spring, we interviewed Della Bennett to talk all about how cville BLOOMS got started and her personal style. And this time, to promote the upcoming pop-up shop on 1st Street on Sunday, April 2, we styled Della in two outfits to showcase what a rockstar lady boss she is – day to night. From creating the beautiful arrangements and making deliveries, to attending events in all her lady boss glam, this darling gal is as seriously adorbs as she is seriously cool.
Blooming stories dipped in green topped with those positive V I B E S.
That’s how Della described her business in 10 words or less in her interview with us last Spring, and it’s still the perfect way to describe the floral arrangements she creates for cville BLOOMS. And this Sunday, for the 1st Street Block Party, you’ll get to shop all of her grab-n-go floral arrangements and a wide selection of house plants! Because it’s Spring and you need a little green in your (home) life.
Day Della: Fierce Florist Fashion
Daytime Della. Sounds like a super hero. With overalls as her super hero outfit, and scissors as her weapon of choice. Flower Power. It’s a thing. And Della is the queen of it.

Night Della: Girl Gets Glam
Nighttime Della sure can get glam. This dress is a little bit retro, a little bit funky (that print!), and a lot a bit spunky. Playing up the ’50s vibes of this dress, we threw on some cat eye sunglasses and a vintage snap closure leather handmade clutch. And to modernize the look a bit, like you want to with any vintage-inspired outfit, Della rocked a pair of handmade tassel earrings and her own #darlingfinds – a pair of black booties from last year.
On Della | Secondhand pieces: Mata Traders dress, M, $28 / Black belt, $6 / Sunglasses, $20 /Dolce Vita booties, Della’s own, found at Darling #darlingfinds // Locally-made pieces: Pan&Tea tassel earrings, $28 / Free Range & Feral leather clutch, $80
