Hi, friends! I’m thrilled to share a comprehensive preview of the Venita Aspen Dillards collection with Gianni Bini. For those who aren’t familiar with Venita, I highly recommend checking out her Instagram page. She’s truly a sweetheart, and it’s been wonderful getting to know her over the years via DM chats and more. Moreover, we’re heading to Charleston this spring, and I’m looking forward to spending time with her over dinner.
Mark your calendars for Monday, March 13th on Dillard’s website for when the collection goes live.

Moreover, I include all of the direct product links. That way, for Monday’s launch, you simply need to open the link, refresh your browser, and you’ll be the first to shop! Super easy. 🙂
