I am so excited to be launching the new Lavendar Boutique website today for owner Sherry Pollex. It is so often that I do automotive-related projects, that it is a breath of fresh air to do a girly site!
Located in Mooresville, NC, the Hollywood Glamour inspired store will make you feel like you’ve been transported to the streets of New York! Lavendar features the latest designer labels from Bella Dahl, Splendid, Sanctuary, Ella Moss, Three Dots, Tart and more and if it’s the latest denim from the runways of NY you’re looking for, Lavendar carries the largest assortment of designer denim in the area, including Hudson, Joe’s Jeans, Paige Denim, True Religion, Citizen of Humanity, MOTHER, Seven For All Mankind and more.
But let’s be honest. It’s hard to build a site for a boutique without coveting a few of their pieces… okay okay, A LOT of their pieces. I’ve already built the perfect fall outfit in my head. Military jacket, moto jeggings, gold necklace, two-tone booties… yes please! Shop it below.
Trends change so quickly that it is difficult to keep up without deep pockets or a sugar daddy (…totally kidding). This season’s “it bag” or “it shoes” may be out of style by next season. And as a 25-year-old with a dog and car payments, I can’t invest in every pretty thing I see (even if it is as pretty as this season’s new it bag, the Kate Spade Beau Bag).
There are great deals to be had online, but I struggle in this department. Case in point, my Steve Madden wedges. When they arrived after ordering them from Macys.com, I received one 8.5 and one 6. Someone explain to me how that happens?! And don’t get me started on ordering clothes… they always wind up HUGE! Since when does a medium mean XXL? Luckily, Lulu’s and Aldo always seem to have that quality piece at an affordable price (and the right size).
Like the shoes above for example. They’re reminiscent of the Valentino “Rockstud” pump but for only $42 from Lulus.com! Plus you get $5 off if you sign up for Lulu’s emails. If you’re looking for the real thing, Valentino just released the “Rockstud” in leopard print…. swoon!
And if you’re looking for a structured winged bag similar to the ever-popular Céline, try this one from Aldo. Use coupon code SIGNUP19912 to get %10 off your order. Some other good options are here, here, and here.
I would say invest in the classics: a nice watch, some tailored jeans, a comfortable pair of black pumps, and that elusive perfect white T. Then take advantage of fashion’s trickle-down effect to score the latest trends at an affordable price. Happy shopping!
