Autumn Fashion Staple Pieces

Last month, we kicked off our autumn collection with a second fashion show! This event is becoming one of favorites here at OPD. And, we are so grateful to create these new traditions with you! We launched so many amazing pieces, and are still placing new styles on the floor weekly! 

We wanted to pause though – and highlight for you – our MUST HAVE pieces for the season. These are just our top 3 and you have no idea how hard it was to ONLY pick 3! Read more below to see! 

Our MUST HAVE for the season is the stunning faux leather spanx. We are absolutely swooning! Go for glam with a pair of heels, or enjoy a more relaxed look with a chunky sweater and sneakers. So versatile and flattering! They definitely bring a WOW factor! Leather is not your thing? We’ve got ‘em in suede, camo, and velvet, too.

Number 2 on our list is the SHACKET. We have multiple color choices, and seriously, we are seeing this trend everywhere. Slip it on for a day trip with the kiddos or to snuggle up at your evening firepit. Simple and stylish, it pairs so nicely with spanx distressed leggings and a pair of signature booties. We got (5) new styles of booties from “Roan!” All on display in our boutique now!

Rounding out our top 3 for the season is a must with the nights getting a bit chilly! Be prepared with a pom pom hat by Meggle’s Knits. They are a true necessity for every New England girl, and do you know – they are made right here in Norfolk!  With so many styles to choose from, you’ll stand out at those evening football games or while on the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree.

We have so many more options in our boutique — you will have to come in and let us help you pick out your 3 must haves for the season. If you aren’t local, that’s ok — your couch and online shopping are always a good mix.
