Show Us Your VFF Style, Part 2 | Our Darlings

Linnea White

Yesterday, we showed off a stylish intern of The Virginia Film Festival to kick-off our giveaway. Today for Part 2, we're bringing you a look styled for a night out at the festival's Gala or Late Night Wrap Party. We styled Braden Hassett, The Virginia Film Festival's Business Administrator, in a classic little black dress and played it up with a little edge for a modern, sleek, red carpet-worthy look. This leather jacket is just dreamy, and paired with a geometric necklace and red lip, this look takes classy to sassy.

Get on Instagram to show us your #vffstyle for a chance to win two tickets to the Late Night Wrap Party this Saturday! The giveaway runs from Wednesday, November 4, and ends Saturday, November 7 at noon. Must be 21+ to enter. Limited to one entry (unique photo tagged with #vffstyle) a day.

On Saturday, April 4, we premiered our new collaboration with Prosperity Candle by displaying a dozen of their popular scents. At the end of the day, we had four candles left.

The impact you makeNavigationTile_impact2 when purchasing a Prosperity Candle is great:

Every candle purchased helps provide a living wage for the women of Prosperity Candle, who have recently resettled from refugee camps and are working to build a brighter future for themselves and their families in the United States.

The candle tins are colorfully decorated with inspirational quotes by women from around the world as well as the name of the woman who made that specific candle. The candles are handpoured soy blend candles in a travel size tin. We burned a sample candle in the store all day Saturday and were amazed by the radiant fragrance of the candle.

Stop by the shop to pick up your own Prosperity Candle and learn about the woman who made it!

Introducing Prosperity Candles into the shop and seeing them fly off the shelf was a huge affirmation of our vision for the store:

  1. To support women on the local and global level through collaborations with local artisans and global mission-based brands (such as Prosperity Candle).
  2. To feature home decor at Darling, in addition to our women's clothing and accessories, new and consigned.

We can't wait to introduce more brands like Prosperity Candle into Darling and share them with our customers.

The series Our Darlings will spotlight our local and global collaborations, featuring artisans and brands that we are bringing into the shop!
