Losing a bet never looked so good! Shall I explain? πŸ™‚

This post is the result of my friend Sherri McMullen of McMullen Boutique and I placing a friendly wager when her Golden State Warriors played my Houston Rockets in the NBA Western Conference Finals. If the Warriors were to win, I had to don their colors. If the Rockets were to win, Sherri would have to don some red.

It was a great series, but in the end, the Golden State Warriors beat the Rockets. In fact, congrats to the Warriors on winning the NBA title last night!

I wasn’t too upset about losing this bet… The Warriors cobalt blue and golden yellow colors gave me the perfect opportunity for me to introduce you to Sherri’s boutique and a line I totally love: NOVIS.


“I don’t have anything to wear!” We’ve all felt that way, right? But when Jordana Warmflash felt that way before attending a friend’s wedding, she decided to make something for herself to wear. That evening, people kept complimenting her outfit, noting its uniqueness, and asking where she got it. The rest, as they say, is history.

After stints designing for Zac Posen and Alice + Olivia (another line I’ve featured as one that I love), she launched NOVIS in 2012, named in homage to her grandmother. NOVIS is timeless and classic, while still being quirky and irreverent. Expertly tailored, the made-in-the-USA pieces are designed for a refined and confident, yet eccentric woman who loves color and pattern. Some of my favorite pieces from the current collection are this dress and this matching top and skirt.

To encourage Wear + Where + Well readers to try McMullen Boutique, Sherri is offering a special discount. Code “WWW20” will get you 20% off the entire site! Sherri curates a such a well-edited collection for the fashion savvy. Some of my favorite designers in her shop include Edie Parker, Preen, Rag & Bone, and Roksanda. Plus, she has a great sale going on!

    Carrie, this outfit is simply divine – even if it was the result of losing a bet πŸ™‚ At least Golden State’s colors aren’t too terrible, like the SF Giants with Orange and Black! I need this top in my life. You are constantly inspiring me to take fashion risks and I love it!

  11. Sheri says:

    Very pretty and colourful, Carrie!

    As Alex said, you ARE an inspiration (not sure if you realize that – truly you are).

    In the past few months you have really opened my eyes to colour, places to source nicer clothing, quality fashion, and looking after myself. You also have a fan with my 11 year old. We look at your IG feed and say, “what is Carrie wearing today?”

    1. Carrie says:

      Ah, Sheri – thank you too! You are certainly right – I don’t think of myself as an “inspiration”. But I do love sharing what I love and am passionate about here with you. Thank you for the encouraging feedback! It really means a lot.

  12. Those shoes are a piece of art!

    1. Carrie says:

      Aren’t they unique? Thanks so much, ladies.
