|Dress (Black Halo, Profyle Boutique); Watch (Charriol); Earrings (Nadri); Shoes (Bandolino)|
You know you've made a good purchase when you're so excited about a garment you just have to wear it the very next day! That's exactly how I felt the second I slipped on this Black Halo dress at the Grand Opening party for Indy's swank new boutique, Profyle. It's called the "Jackie O" dress, but I call it the "Jody Oh!" dress!
|Upscale ambiance, unique lines, and a focus on individual style give Profyle a unique profile|
Located in the new Ironworks mixed use residential building at 86th and Keystone, Profyle is the realization of passion pursued for owner Wandini Riggins. Invited to the opening soiree by our mutual friend and fashion maven Murph Damron, I didn't know Wandini before I stepped inside her dream world. Within minutes of introducing myself, however, I realized we have a lot in common - we're both attorneys with a fierce love of fashion and a focus on personal style that transcends the trendy. I really liked this woman.
|It's all about the asymmetrical draped neckline...|
I also really liked her staff, her store, and the styles therein. The unique lines that Profyle carries, like Vika (Profyle is the exclusive carrier of the brand in Indiana) and Black Halo, make the boutique well worth a visit.
|but the back of the dress is great, too!|
On a sofa table behind the stylish yet comfortable quilted couch outside the dressing rooms, you'll also find a bevy of beguiling bracelets and assorted enticing accessories, not to mention the covetable copper clutch showcased in the last photo, below. (Oh boy, I seem to have been bitten by the alliteration bug again)

Wandini and her crew also know how to throw a party! Guests were treated to champagne, sushi, cupcakes, and cake pops, and went home with custom Profyle candles, stationery, and a pair of hoop earrings. Though these party favors aren't everyday fare, I have no doubt that Profyle's customers will always come away feeling pampered. I'm already looking forward to visiting again.
Fashion is what you buy; Style is what you do with it!
