Good things come to those who wait patiently. I have begged Van Jean’s owner, Melissa Blanchard, to take her incredibly chic SC boutique online for years (for over 2 years, to be exact).

Well that up there is my victory stance because she went and did it. I’m thrilled to introduce you all to a southern style mainstay, Van Jean!

And what is in this gorgeous shop you might be wondering? Many of your favorite brands – think Dannijo, Phillip Lim, Tucker, Tibi… It goes on and on and on.

This Suno dress that I’m wearing is freaking amazing. Ah-freaking-mazing. I have been eyeing this exact acid rose brocade from Suno’s spring collection, but hadn’t seen this dress anywhere. Van Jean had it!

And these Loeffler Randall wedges are the greatest little summer shoe – I love the leopard insole! I wore these at the Summit last week and got compliment after compliment.

This is me listening to all my shoe compliments. No, just kidding. This is me on my front porch. :)

Please welcome Van Jean into your list of shopping sites! Melissa’s carefully curated collection of designer pieces will knock your socks off! Really. And if you create a pinterest board around Van Jean finds then you just might win a $500 gift card.

Good luck!!
