UVA Game Day Outfit

Linnea White

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.

Shhhh... don't tell anyone. Abby actually went to JMU (Class of 2017!). And dressing her up in orange and blue (my alma mater - Go Hoos!) was super fun. She was a trooper, and looked absolutely darling in her UVA game day outfit.

This University of Virginia alumnus, female-owned business is bringing you the very Best of C-VILLE when it comes to consignment and locally-made goods! Come check out #darlingcville and shop for Fall. Show us your UVa ID for a special 10% off this weekend - and all Home Game Weekends!

Now Hoos ready to tailgate on the Lawn?!

Valentine's Day Outfit: Pink vs. Red

Linnea White

vdaycollage.jpg

It's Valentine's Day, darlings, and that means it's time for an epic battle of love (right?). We styled two Valentine's Day outfits for two kinds of gals - the Lady in Red or Pretty in Pink (a.k.a. 80's Barbie). From sugar to spice, we've got that last minute VDay outfit inspiration you need.

P.S. I went a little crazy with a lavender hair toner to see what would happen, and had a little temporary lilac hue going when we did this shoot! This hair makeover is giving me LIFE these days. Once you go platinum white, you never go back... right?

Pretty in Pink

I felt like a cupcake in this dress - in the best way possible. All the girly vibes had me ready for an 80's themed VDay party. I added my vegan leather jacket to edge up the look a bit, and a pair of new sunnies for that extra touch of glam. Don't forget a locally made lipstick in hot pink!

Lady in Red

Silk = sexy. This silk DVF dress is SO va-va-voom, I was swooning as soon as it touched my skin. For the spicier gal, this dress is made to show off some curves, and light up the room in the crisp red hue. With a dress this sexy, keep the accessories simple and understated. I opted for a pair of tassel earrings by Pan&Tea, a classic (locally made) red lipstick, and a side swept 'do to add a touch of elegance. And just because, threw my Anthropologie leather jacket over my shoulders again for that finishing statement piece.

Winter Vintage Glam

Linnea White

The holiday parties may have passed, but Winter Vintage Glam never fades. The timeless touch of whimsical pieces and eye catching glam is a dashing combination. This outfit mixes vintage finds with contemporary brands flawlessly for a look oozing style with class!

We already know I have a thing for Winter Whites (from clothes to hair color), so when this vintage Angora sweater came into the shop last week, the swooning commenced, inspiring this entire outfit. Paired with a pair of Topshop tuxedo style jogger pants, sassy black heels, and this stunning feathery jacket, I was oozing sartorial elegance.

When the pieces are so effortlessly chic, accessories are meant to compliment, not overpower. After all, we're talking about Vintage Glam here. The longline jacket and the long necklace help contrast the cropped sweater to lengthen the neck and torso, making a curvier, shorter frame extra tall. A pair of medallion earrings pair fabulously with the velvet embroidered vintage clutch, and, of course, what's more retro than a classic red lip.

From Winter cocktail party, New Year's Eve party, Winter wedding reception, or just for a night on the town, this outfit is ready to just about any Winter soirée.

What's your favorite way to wear vintage pieces?

The Statement Choker

Linnea White

In honor of Throw Back Thursday (#tbt) and this current trend, I styled a Fall outfit that incorporates one of our many leather chokers available in the shop. The statement choker is in this season, in a big way, and this arrowhead choker has us feeling like a boho goddess, courtesy of Free Range & Feral.

The rich mulberry color of the leather choker pulls out the beautiful hues in this flowy Anthropologie blouse, and, of course, was the perfect match with our very own Kitsune's Closet Mulberry lipstick. These super soft, distressed AG jeans are the perfect relaxed fit to wear from season to season. Add a pair of easy booties and a light jacket for the crisp Fall weather.

How will you wear the choker trend this season?
