So what do you do when the cutest little boutique in Carrollton (The Vintage House) and the best blogger group in Dallas (Dallas Blogger Collective) host a tea party? You go. Without a question, you go to that tea party. And y’all, the tea party did not disappoint.

First off, the precious owner of The Vintage House, Nan, and her amazing team really pulled out all the stops. All the treats were perfectly branded and beautiful, the signage for the event was hand drawn by one of their employees, the precious Alli K, they had a pink step and repeat, a photographer, a top notch goodie bag and countless giveaway items. Running an event for 60+ ladies is not an easy task but The Vintage House and Dallas Blogger Collective made it happen with zero issues. (Do you guys do event planning? Because maybe you should…)
If you’ve never stopped by The Vintage House, you’re really missing out. In addition to their VERY sweet and attentive staff, you can really find something for everyone there. This isn’t your average Dallas boutique – they’re a certified Gold Vera Bradley retailer, carry a huge selection of Kendra Scott, kids items, home goods, soaps, lotions, hand crafted jewelry and pretty much anything else you can imagine. I even bought my dad some Poo Pourri there for Christmas (hey dad, you finally got your blog shoutout!)
Admittedly, I’ve never been a huge Vera Bradley fan (the quilted pieces are beautiful, just not my personal taste) but their newer items have converted me into a full blown Vera fan. Their leather and faux leather bags are beautifully crafted and available in a wide variety of colors. I ended up winning one of their new wristlets and I am just over the moon. I also have my eye on a yellow faux leather backpack they gave away – I might have to get one for myself before my vacations I have scheduled for the fall.
Since it was a tea party, floral was a MUST but let’s be honest….tea party attire isn’t my thing. So I grunged this 90s vintage goodie down with some burgundy patent combat boots and it was the perfect, comfortable outfit for the occasion. *Outfit photo by Jordan of Darling Truly
So next time you’re too lazy to deal with parking in Bishop Arts District or Deep Ellum (which is all the time for me), head out to Carrollton, grab a burger at Twisted Root and then walk across the street to The Vintage House and get yourself some goodies! Make sure to tell them Valery sent you 🙂
