Staff Picks:


If you've ever stopped by our shop or booked an Approval Box, chances are, you've been assisted by our radiant Stylist, Johanna. Her calming presence, distinctively edgy yet approachable personal style, and balanced energy creates an air of peace in our shop, beautifully reflected in her favorite spring-summer seasonal picks.

Johanna is lovingly known among our team as a "silent killer." She's always able to perfectly observe and translate someone's personal style, picking gorgeous pieces that complement and make you feel more like you with just a few interactions. She's remarkably perceptive, laid-back and funny, lifting our team with her calming energy, immaculate taste and down-for-anything attitude. When she's not at the shop, you can find Johanna drawing in her sketchbooks, reading a good book, spending time with family and friends or jet-setting to her next destination. We're constantly inspired by her ability to make anyone feel at ease, as well as her truly impeccable and intrinsically personal taste in any area. We're thrilled to have her on Team V&V, and know each person who has the joy of interacting with her feels the same.

Johanna's spring favorites, including elevated basics from Tibi and Rejina Pyo glimmer, inviting you to make your personality and style shine each time you slip them on. Explore her picks below and join us to get inspired.



"These are my absolute favorite thing we have in the shop right now. They're super lightweight and easy—you can really wear them with anything. The fabrication and color is perfect for spring, while being versatile enough to wear year-round. I love them back to an easy tank top or tee, but they'd work beautifully with a blouse and kitten heel to dress them up."


"This dress is dreamy, especially for a North Carolina hot spring and summer. It's cotton jersey, so super breathable, but the graphic and flowing shape add a youthful energy that updates a traditional black dress. I think this is perfect for summer weddings and events to truly stand out while looking and feelings effortlessly cool."



"This is such an elevated take on a t-shirt. The cut is something so familiar, but the fine details—from the sheer lace to the lovely color—make it something really special and awesome. I'd style this back to my next favorite..."



"This is my ideal denim. It's a versatile wash, a classic—and my favorite—high rise, and a really alluring but effortless fit, especially for a wide-leg jean. They're 100% cotton denim, so they'll really hold up over wears, while being a truly perfect weight to wear year-round."
