I live in New Orleans and when I need clothes, it is worth the drive to Lafayette to purchase them from Vanessa V. From casual clothes, to work clothes, to dressy events, this store covers all my needs from head to toe. Literally, you can walk out and go straight to event, because she has everything there. And Vanessa loves to put outfits together for you, so that always saves time. I love that she has cards hanging on the racks, that show which pieces make up different looks. Always helpful. Also you can sign up to be on her blogs and emails, which has great fashion tips, advertise sales, and events.
What a great store! I live part time in Los Angeles, and I prefer to shop here more then any place I've shopped in California. It has perfect mix of trendy pieces and classy basics, all within my budget. (I am quite frugal.) I also love that I can buy an entire ensemble without stepping foot into a mall--top, bottom, shoes, accessories, that camisole to make my new sheer top daytime friendly--it's all in one place. And don't get me started on the Cookie Johnson jeans. . . Words cannot describe how comfortable these are. You just have to try them on.
I am absolutely IN LOVE with Vanessa V! The clothes are amazing and it is stuff you see in magazines and on runways, but the prices are awesome! The owner is almost always in the store and will bend over backwards to help you find the perfect outfit for ANY occassion. I would definitely come here first for any special outfit I need.
