Winter Fur | Every Day Drama

Linnea White

Photo-Feb-13-3-44-13-PM-e1455720337370.jpg

When a vintage fur shawl finds its way into the shop, Winter fur outfit ideas (the overly dramatic kind) come to life. This Fall and Winter, fur has been full on trending, from the runways to the department stores, and we've seen a number of great fur pieces in the shop (here, here, and here). On a blustery cold Winter day this past weekend, I bundled up by layering a full length velvet skirt with this cozy vintage fur shawl. Add a top knot, a plum lip, a high neck tank, and black booties for a dramatic every day Winter look.

High Fashion Fall | Dressing Up with Darling

Linnea White

New York Fashion Week may have just ended, but we're definitely feeling a little high fashion this Fall. With the Garrett Street mural as our backdrop, we took this outfit to a new level of fashion. This outfit started with the Gary Graham silk skirt, a piece with the "rebel courage" and romantic edge the brand is known for. With a pair of sky high heels and a retro patterned blouse, this outfit screamed art. Add the gorgeous L.A.M.B. leather bag for added cool. Top knot not included.

Dressing Up with Darling: Beaded with a Purpose

Linnea White

Our darling intern, Emma, is nearly 6 feet tall and all-the-way gorgeous. We were excited to style her for this week's Dressing Up with Darling post, featuring a basic summer outfit with fun details and accessorized to the max.

These beaded accessories are brand new at Darling, and have such a beautiful story behind them. Handmade in Uganda, the beaded necklaces, bracelets, sandals, earrings, and bags support the adoption of two little boys by a local couple here in Charlottesville. One hundred percent of each item purchased from this collection supports the adoption. Stay tuned for an upcoming pop up shop event featuring even more from this amazing couple in early August!

Dressing Up with Darling: Hippie Daze

Linnea White

Summer days, hippie daze. When we got in these wide leg Loft pants and Zara embroidered blouse, the '70s were calling our name. Paired with our circle frame, retro-style sunglasses and some sky high platform wedges, we rocked this bohemian look in the mid-summer heat. Finished with the beautiful jewelry by Thistle & Lark, this outfit is festival, concert, whatever-awesomeness-you-find-yourself-in ready.
