Red Velvet Reminiscing

I'm in Springfield, Missouri right now.  Why you ask?  I have joined the team over at 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!

When I worked there the first time I learned so much about myself and made a plan for starting my own dream brand.  Emma and Elsie have made a HUGE impact on my life by hiring me, teaching me, encouraging me, and becoming my friends.  I'm forever grateful.  Visiting the store and working with them again (and Katie and Trey) has me feeling excited about their plans for the future, and encouraged in my own plans for the future!  I'm so glad they have asked me back! xo, Mallory
