Last Friday I headed downtown to attend the grand opening of Red Velvet Vintage, a new retro-inspired women’s boutique located a 509 S. Main Street. The sister store to Crazy Beautiful, it’s setting itself up to be a premier destination for women who love that bombshell, rockabilly style.
Held during Trolley Night, the street was abuzz with people (and they have such a diverse clientele), so I was able to act as a fly on a (fashionable) wall and capture people mingling, laughing, and most importantly SHOPPING!
Gorgeous Vera (she’s the store manager) sold this dress-women LOVED it!
Hearing the Side Street Steppers perform during the night was such a treat. Every time I heard a song I was familiar with, I got a little giddy. They do a fantastic cover of Mae West’s A Guy What Takes His Time (If you’ve ever seen Burlesque, XTina performs this).
I picked up these earrings that night; I just have to decide if I’m going to keep them for myself or use them in a shoot!
Seeing people support local businesses always warms my soul. To keep up with Red Velvet Vintage, follow them on Facebook and go by the store to say hi!
