Velvet for the Holidays

Linnea White

Velvet for the Holidays. Is there a better combination? Not this season! Velvet is everywhere, and it's a guaranteed stunner for all your Holiday fêtes ahead.  Velvet has made a huge comeback this year, and we're loving it. The fabric has a rich, luxe feel, and an effortless sheen, making it perfect for the Holidays. This black velvet Free People dress was the perfect fit for an understated Holiday look. We even paired it with some high top sneakers for an unexpected twist.

The velvet luster is also a great backdrop for local artisan Lisa Christine Jewelry's lovely creations - from a moon ring to a crystal necklace to silver hoop earrings. The trick to velvet is to let it do most of the talking, or find accent pieces - like statement jewels - to ramp it up a notch without going kitschy.

How do you like to wear the velvet trend, darlings? Tell us in the comments!

P.S. This is our adorable #darlingintern, Jillian! She's a senior at Monticello High School, and she has been a HUGE help around the shop this Fall so far. We'll introduce her on the blog with a little Q&A soon!

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!
