Some days (mostly Monday’s), it’s all about cozy. And when a cashmere sweater, velvet pants, suede booties, and leather tote bag collide in one affordable, secondhand outfit, the wardrobe and the wallet can sing some praises.
It’s my favorite weekend of the year! Or one of them. Top 5. For sure. I love The Virginia Film Festival, and have attended every year since I was a 4th year student at UVa – 8 years in a row! I recently styled a wild and warm outfit for the weekend’s festivities, showing a little Virginia Film Festival Shop Girl Style for film-hopping and shop-girling.
From Cannes to Charlottesville, from fashion to film, the season of the film festival is an exciting one. And it’s that time of year in Charlottesville! The Virginia Film Festival begins tomorrow, November 9, and runs through Sunday, November 12, and brings the best of international, domestic, and local films to the theaters of Charlottesville every year. For the 3rd year in a row, Darling is partnering with the festival to bring you the best of Virginia’s film festival style.
This year, we styled two glowing gals from the VFF staff, Production Intern Rebecca Malaret and Operations Manager Sarah Cain. Don’t they look just darling?!
One dress, worn two ways – day to night. Challenge accepted.
When local blogger Carrie from Dream Green DIY and I chatted about collaborating a few months ago, we ended up deciding on the idea of styling a dress for her busy blogger life. Based on her style needs, we leaned towards pieces that she could wear seamlessly from day to night, from a coffee shop meeting or work session to drinks with friends. As with any piece you purchase, you want to imagine styling it multiple ways, and this dress made it easy to pull double-duty.
Hoo’s getting ready for Fall and picking out that UVa Game Day outfit? We are! This navy Anthropologie bomber jacket is the perfect Fall layer for game day. Throw it over something orange, like this on-trend button front A-line skirt, and a pair of white kicks or boots, like these classic Campus Frye boots.
