Last weekend for my 22nd birthday, I drove down to Springfield, MO to visit Red Velvet! It was quite a long drive.. about 800 miles total. It was worth every mile! I enjoyed visiting Red Velvet and found that it was ten times better in person! Their hat box collection was astonishing and the quality of their dresses and all of their vintage clothing was absolutely phenomenal. Elsie and she came over and greeted us and gave us a peach bubble tea and red velvet cake pop... it was very welcoming and sweet! I insisted we pay for the treats but she simply said, "No! It's your birthday!"
Later, I met Mallory, Elsie's intern for her fall dress line and Emma, her sister who runs the sweet shoppe. Anyway, everyone was very warm and welcoming and I wanted to buy the dress in the photo above that I am wearing but alas had no money after my road trip excursion. Just the experience alone was amazing and totally fulfilling..
I also forgot to tell you that I brought Emma and Elsie little presents :) I gifted two of my bow tie designs to them and they both just snapped them right on! They chose the exact ones I thought they would and looked very sweet in them.
love, polly :)
