Richmond Fashion Crush: Shop Tailor

Hello! A couple of months ago, I attended a shopping event for Shop Tailor, an online fashion retailer based in Richmond. I attended a similar shopping event last year and met Taylor Pitera, Shop Tailor's owner. Taylor actually lives in the same neighborhood as me- how cool, right?! I was stoked when she invited me to the event at her home and immediately RSVP'd yes. 

I grabbed my roommate, Elissa, to go to it with me and we had a blast. Taylor provided snacks, beverages and the opportunity to shop (and try on!) Shop Tailor clothing and accessories. She has the prettiest "shopping" room set up in her home with carefully curated racks of clothing, plush carpet, a gorgeous light fixture and even a spot to try pieces on. 

I browsed through the racks and selected a couple of items to try on including this pretty paisley number. Its vibrant colors, retro psychedelic print and effortless silhouette all called out to me. I slipped it on and knew that it had to be mine. And boy am I glad that I purchased it! It's such an easy dress to style and I've been wearing it practically every week. It works surprisingly well as a transitional piece from winter to spring due to its simple silhouette; I've been layering turtlenecks underneath it, sweaters over it and even dresses underneath of it. I have a feeling that it'll be a favorite in my wardrobe for months to come. 

I wanted to play up its pretty seventies appeal for this look so I paired it with a pair of platform denim heels, a vintage basket bag and boho jewelry. I tied a purple paisley scarf around the bag to play up the print of the dress. A trendy pair of sunglasses perfected the look.
