From the beginning back in 2010 my saying at Vanessa V. has always been 'Life Just Got Easier'.
As we grow in our professional and personal lives, shopping isn't what it used to be when we were teens and young adults. Our parents would drop us off at the malls or we would head there with our friends for a day of shopping. Remember those days when we looked forward to an actual 'day of shopping'?
Now our free time is packed with responsibilities, and that feeling of looking forward to shopping has now changed to 'Ugh! I have to go shopping.'
Not only when I opened Vanessa V. 12 years ago did I want it to be a place where everyone who thought they couldn't shop in a boutique felt welcomed, but I just didn't want to sling item and after item to whoever bought my stuff. I wanted to show you how to take items you may have bought a year ago, or items you already owned and teach you how to incorporate them into your newly purchased item. I wanted to make shopping fun again, with the limited time you have, and my increasing the number of outfits you can make with one piece, I would say, that is a fun time-saver!
I LOVE taking one piece and showing you multiple ways to wear it! It is a sincere passion of mine.
My latest blog post features the 'Beachy Clean' wide leg palazzos pants in sizes 0-26. The beauty of these is the wide ruched waistband that isn't fitted.
Pending your height and/or styling preference you can wear these on your waist for a cropped look, or on your hips for a full length look!
And just look at all the solids you can mix and match back to them! Cream, lavender, olive, pink, sage, denim, gold, mustard, and of course black, white and navy. I didn't even try my hand at mauve yet..but definitely a winner!
Sizes available-XS-0-4, S-6-8, M-10-12, L-12-14, XL-16-18, 1X-20-22, 2X-24-26
Vanessa is wearing a large and they are flowy as intended to be. You can either size down in these or do your true to size.
Check out the fit video here!
Let's pick these outfits apart and get you more info!
The Buttons and Henly top in seashell is a ribbed knit neutral colored top you can wear with leggings as a casual look or dressed up as you see here. It is a longer length top, but you can also tuck in. This fits true to size and Vanessa is in the large!
To be honest you can search 'pink top' or 'mauve top' and get lots of options to coordinate back to these pants, but for this pic I used the 'Basic V-Neck' top in pink! True to size, Vanessa is in the large
Oh to say I am obsessed with this lightweight velvety hoodie is an understatement. I am declaring this season the season I no longer listen to the negative voices in my head telling me I can't wear a crop top! This will be available on the site Tuesday 3-8 and Vanessa is in the large!
If you do not have a lightweight, light washed denim jacket yet, you are missing out on a tremendous amount of layering options this spring! I LOVE this look. This jacket is from Risen and is intended to be boxy. Vanessa did her true to size large, but you can also size down if you want to!
Thought it would be a fab idea to bring out the gold/mustard color in these pants and simultaneously dress them up as well. This top is a billowy top with ruched cuffs and waistband. The waistband is not tight! Vanessa is in her true to size large.
Now if you know me, you know I love to layer and add lots of dimension and different shades to coordinate back to a print! I did a white tank and a olive short sleeve cardigan here. Short sleeve cardigans are an essential piece to keep the layering looks going into spring and summer. This one is available 3/10 on the site in olive and black! Vanessa is in the true to size large!
Making these pants relevant when it's chilly out is very easy with this GORGEOUS sweater. This color is one of my faves for all the months of the year because it is beautiful over white but also looks ravishing with chocolate, navy, black and cream! Vanessa is in her true to size large.
Probably the most infamous thing I am known for since opening up shop in 2010 is using the color mustard. Once I discovered how frickin' versatile this color is with use as an accessory, layering piece and footwear color, I have been in LOVE! Give it a try. Most of my customers start their 'mustard' journey with this fabulous cardigan! I layered it over an olive top by POL. The top you can do true to size or size up. The cardigan. has stretch to it so you can size down, stay true to size or size up honestly. Here I am wearing a medium, but I can also do large, and xl.
