Perhaps you've noticed some of the fabulous garb from emerging designer Cigi Guz I've recently been styling.  A few months ago I visited Cigi's speakeasy boutique, V. Vill, for the first time; a little room tucked far in the back of mega thrift store Value Village.  I put one foot in the door and my soul was full.  My eyes saw everything magical and more than they could stand; one of a kind vintage fashions cleverly hung by color and pattern in a low lit room full of intrigue.  Quirky yet cool, unique character and style oozed all around me.  (I think I met my match in the form of a boutique! :)  Then, I nearly lost my breath when I put on this Italian made dress.  V. Vill has recently closed but only to make room for major excitement in store from Cigi Guz and her team of talent.  Join me at Style Night Out tonight to catch a glimpse first hand, and stay tuned to the Queen City Style for more!

For the love of classic style...
Thank you SO much for being here!!  xxWhitley

  13. Such a classic look and I love the scoop back. It reminds be of Ballet class and gracefulness. All your accessories are spot on. We have to go check out Cigi when I come visit!
