We love when our customers rock their Darling finds and show it off their customer style! Nothing makes us feel more loved (and proud) than seeing our customers feeling beautiful in their purchases. This past weekend, Serrine stopped by the shop and hit the jackpot. From a J. Crew shift dress to a pair of Frye boots, this gal got some serious deals. And then she shared the love on Instagram and tagged @shopatdarling, which made our hearts flutter flutter. Thanks for the love, Serrine, and for being such a darling!

We love collaborating with locals, especially when the locals are a part of The Virginia Film Festival. This year, Darling is teaming up with the VFF for not one, but TWO special giveaways! The first giveaway took place last weekend at the newly opened Violet Crown theater on the downtown mall, and the house of the VFF headquarters. We're excited to style our lucky winner this Thursday, November 5, for a movie makeover and night on the red carpet. The second giveaway starts tomorrow, Wednesday, November 4, and ends Saturday, November 7 at noon. Post a picture of your Virginia Film Festival-inspired style and use the hashtag #vffstyle for a chance to win two tickets to the Late Night Wrap Party on Saturday, November 7 at Main Street Arena. Must be 21+ to enter. Limited to one entry (unique photo tagged with #vffstyle) a day.

To get the #vffstyle giveaway started, we styled the festival's Publicity Intern, Lucie Lyon, in an adorable, autumnal outfit. See how she rocks her VFF t-shirt with the perfect Fall pieces, and get on Instagram to show your own #vffstyle for a chance to win!

Dressing Up with Darling: Peace, Love, and Best Of

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!

Dressing Up with Darling: Beaded with a Purpose

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: Summer Picnic Style

Linnea White

Midsummer. That time of year when the days are long and the evening sun is the perfect time for a picnic. Relief from the heat of the day, and enough daylight for an evening with friends. Last week, we put together two summer outfits for an impromptu midsummer's eve picnic in the backyard. Long maxi skirts, lightweight fabrics, dreamy hues, and delicate jewelry made for the perfect summer picnic ensemble. Don't forget a throw-all straw bag for your picnic essentials!
