Dallas Blogger Collective Tea Party at The Vintage House

I recently joined the Dallas Blogger Collective (DBC), an awesome network of bloggers in the DFW area.  They host monthly events, blogger workshops, have fun volunteer oppourtunities and even sponsored brand oppourtunities. If your a blogger in the DFW area, it's so worth checking out....and hey, maybe we'll get to meet up at the next event!! :-D

Yesterday, DBC hosted an adorable little tea party at a local boutique, The Vintage House, in Carrolton, TX.  The house itself is super cute....think all pink and tons of old school charm. I LOVED it!! It would be such a fun backdrop for a photoshoot.
When I arrived at the event, I got to walk the pink carpet....
I honestly searched and searched for a dress to wear on Saturday, but I didn't find anything I just had to I shopped my closet and pulled out this dress I bought a few years back from Dots.  Added some high red heels from Target, a fun belt and lots of bracelets.  It wasn't floral like I was originally going for, but I think it worked out even better than my original plan. ((Sometimes you just have to throw plans out the window haha))
Once inside, they had an adorable tea party area set up with a beautiful cake, lots of cute desserts and yummy tea.
After grabbing a little snack (hey, when at a tea and chatting with some of the other bloggers, I checked out all the goodies the store had to offer.  The Vintage House is waaaay bigger than it looked from the outside-->>3 floors PACKED to the brim with Vera Bradley, Kendra Scott, girlie quotes, adorable trinkets, candles and more.  It was a girlie paradise & styled so adorably!
At the end of the event, we all got back together for a fun drawing where they gave away about 12 Vera Bradley bags....I had no clue Vera Bradley now has a leather bag line.  They are so cute!!!  I didn't win, but it was awesome to get a peek at the new line...def adding these to my wish list!
The event was a blast and I am so glad I joined in on the Dallas Blogger Collective.  I can not wait for another fun event....there was even talk of an event for spouses and boyfriends who have the honor (haha) of taking all our daily outfit photos complete with tips from a legit photog and drinks once the trainings complete.  <
