Flourish Boutique GIVEAWAY!! [CLOSED]

Today, I am honored (and so excited!!) to tell you about an adorable gem in Granger, IN called Flourish Boutique! I was contacted by them (before this blog even existed!) and was invited to be a VIP at their 5th Birthday Party & Fashion Show on June 20. As a "spring chicken" to the blogging world, I was humbled to say the least...and totally giddy to spend a night out with some of my favorite girls!

I went to college near where Flourish is located and the owner, Vanessa Cooreman Smith, just happens to be a fellow alumna of where I graduated! I have had the privilege of watching her business grow into the amazing boutique that it is today. Vanessa has basically taken any fashionista's idea of retail heaven (at least mine!) and made it into a real life place! The store is actually a beautiful, character-filled historic house tucked on a scenic, wooded lot at the intersection of two of the busiest streets in Granger.

The owner of Flourish (Vanessa) and I! GO BELLES!!

Yes, those are PINK GLITTER lines in the parking lot. I told you - this place is a playground for big girls!  Inside is just as whimsical and fashion-forward: pink and black decor, damask print walls, sparkling chandeliers and the friendliest, most knowledgeable staff I have ever had the fortune to shop with. I was able to go to the store a few days before the event to snap some shots of my favorite pieces.  Picking my "favorites" was hard...the racks were packed with treats for me to fall in love with!!


The Flourish girls do an amazing job of selecting styles and price points that really do cater to every body type AND every budget!  At Flourish, you will find super special pieces that won't break the bank, and being a grad student myself, I love that!  In addition to being budget-friendly, Flourish also has an entire room designated to their curvy clientele - how cool is that?!


How awesome is this dress?! I have never seen a vertical chevron and thought it was super special and in the perfect colors for spring/summer. I also loved this top and this one...the 3D flowers added a special touch to the one on the left, and the neckline on the mint top is so unique and flattering!

Excuse the messy dressing room! This skirt ended up coming home with me, and I'm still lusting over the cobalt blue beaded rose necklace! These necklaces are right on-trend right now!! I can't wait to style this beautiful piece over and over again!
As you can see, I am surrounded by stylish women!
L to R: my beautiful mom, friend Andrea, me, and my sister Nattie
PINK! TREATS! FLOWERS! The perfect GNO!
Look! The cupcakes matched my necklace!
Three of my favorite looks: Oh Sunny Day, Colorful Chevron (option),  Mint to Be Adorned
Fashion Show Finale! HAPPY BIRTHDAY FLOURISH!!
The night of the event was filled with delicious drinks and treats, a fashion show, giveaways, great sales...and of course, quality time with some of my favorite women! Every guest got a swag bag filled with special treats; mine contained a neon pink tank, chevron scarf (stay tuned to see me style that beaut!) and exclusive discounts! Vanessa and the Flourish girls did a beautiful job putting together a special night for their customers and friends. Flourish Boutique is truly a business that is built with the customer in mind...no detail goes unappreciated!!

    1. Thanks Lauren! I'm trying to figure out how to make it more office appropriate. It's a touch short I think!
