She and Reverie is a handcrafted brand out of New York City that’s all about whimsy, vintage extravagance, and rose-colored glasses. While this particular brand isn’t a good fit for my personal style, I admire them for doing something different, and bucking some of the fairly homogenous trends I’ve seen in the industry lately.
