A Beautiful Mess (until the 15th) to collaborate on some projects. When I did the Red Velvet dress lines with them I spent a huge amount of time at the studio in the back of the local shop. This time I'm working at the blog studio, but I ran to the shop studio for supplies today and was filled with this rush of emotion and memories! I even saw some of the patterns I drafted for the first collection!
I just found these photos from when Brian and I visited Springfield a month ago. After having breakfast at Gailey's we headed out to my favorite vintage stores in town like Funtiques and ended up at Relics, which I had never been to! It had some of the midcentury and sewing things I always look for as well as the industrial and vintage military things Brian loves.
Brian ended up buying some beautiful bentwood auditorium chairs. I bought some cute puzzles (girl directly above and a boy), a few small things, and a vintage Star Wars shirt for my nephew! Sadly I had to leave that giant mint desk and the metal Barbie Thermos. Broke my heart.
Later that night was the goodbye party at Red Velvet for the Denbows. It was nighttime and none of my pictures really turned out fantastic, but I had to post this one with my girl Missy. I really, really enjoyed working with her & having conversations with her every night last summer at Red Velvet. She's in Korea now teaching kids English. How amazing is she?!
