We had the pleasure of spending the day with reigning Miss Missouri, Jennifer Davis.  For two weeks prior to the Miss America Competition and for the final night on September 10th in Atlantic City, Jenn has to have sponsors for outfits, shoes and accessories.  Her mission is to showcase as much local fashion as possible, and who better to help her with this than the BoutiqueNAV girls!  We love her already!

We met Jennifer at Shine Boutique, one of our favorite accessory boutiques in the heart of Ladue, Mo. She looked adorable in a Lilly Pulitzer two piece navy dress from Pink Magnolia Boutique in Ladue, MO.  Pink Magnolia is sponsoring her work out attire.  Local shoe designer, Claire Flowers also met with us to pair her fabulous shoes with Shine’s accessories. Check out the pictures below which illustrate our wonderful morning at Shine Boutique.  Thank you to Shine Boutique owner, Tamara Dajani Netsch, and Claire Flowers for generously supporting Miss Missouri with shoe and accessory sponsorships!  Jennifer was thrilled and will look fabulously local!

Our next stop after a power lunch where we met Jenn’s mom, Nicole (we needed to refuel), we headed into Clayton, MO to Lusso.  Lusso carries several items from local designers making it a perfect place to find an outfit showcasing local talent.  Drea Ranick, one Lusso’s owners, was on hand to find several pieces that worked perfectly.  Jenn was particularly drawn to Wai Ming pieces by local designer, Emily Brady Koplar who is part of the St. Louis Fashion Incubator.  Lusso generously agreed to sponsor Jenn and even gave her the STL Arch Apparel/Red Lettered Shirt that you’ll see below.  Check out out how amazing Jenn looks in the clothes from Lusso!
