It’s my favorite weekend of the year in Charlottesville! Or one of them. In my top 5 - definitely. And my sartorial moment of film festival street style. I love The Virginia Film Festival, and have attended every year since I was a 4th year student at UVa – that's 10 years in a row! It's been an incredible decade of celebrating film - local and international. Here's my list of film picks for this year's festival!Read More

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?!

Best Secondhand Clothing Store 2016 & 2015
We are filled with gratitude, because our darling community voted us the Best Secondhand Clothing Store in Cville for the second consecutive year! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting this little shop, and a big thank you to the many consignors and local artisans that make the shop the very best.
Drum Roll, Please...
A little over a year ago, in March of 2015, we became the co-owners of this darling shop, and joined the amazing community of small businesses and local life on the Downtown Mall. This Summer, Megan made the (bittersweet!) decision to move on from Darling to pursue nursing school. Linnea is now the sole owner of the shop, and thrilled to keep bringing consistent, high quality consignment and local artisans goods to the Charlottesville community.
We thank you endlessly for your support as consignors, customers, and friends. And, now, without further ado, The Darling Duet is signing off. Thank you for an incredible year.
Humbly and joyfully, Linnea & Megan
P.S. Stay tuned for future announcements about new services, local artisans, and even a revamped blog! It's an exciting new chapter for DarlingBoutique!

Last Friday, we celebrated our Best of C-VILLE win for Best Consignment Store. The theme was Peace, Love, and Best of, so naturally we wanted to dress for the party in the spirit of a 1969 flower chip. Cue Woodstock vibes. With flowers both foraged and courtesy of Hope Zielter, local floral designer, we put on our best 60's flower child frocks and donned our handmade flower crowns for a night of revelry. Thank you again to everyone and who voted for us!
