Most of you know by now through social media that the blog is undergoing some changes. Many of you have reached out to me asking what exactly that entails. The biggest change is the name of the blog. After a long back and forth, I have decided to move from “Red Reticule” to “Hampton Roads Fashion & Style”. Why? You may ask.
Over the past couple of years, I have been lucky enough to personally meet some truly inspiring business owners and be a tiny part of their story in the place I call home, Hampton Roads, VA. I grew up with parents who started their own businesses at a young age and I saw (and felt) the blood, sweat and tears it took to get a business up and running and make it successful. I am dedicating more space to those local businesses in fashion and style to help to get the word out and introduce those unique shops and boutiques to you.
You will still see the regular outfit posts, but I will be incorporating more items I’ve picked up from local shops. I will be reporting on the local fashion happenings and hopefully tell you some inspiring stories of how dreams were born. I am very lucky to have support along the way and hope that you will enjoy what’s coming.
And now onto a different topic. I am honest with you, I have not done much shopping on shopbop until recently. I am familiar with the name, but never really cared checking it out more closely until recently. A few weeks ago I picked up a pair of these smooth suede booties in red. Excellent quality and since they are chic and comfortable, I wear them all the time. I love the fact that shopbop has a great variety of products and they carry shoes in super small sizes. Currently they have a huge, designer boutique sale going where you can snap items for up to 85% off! Be sure to use code 25LUXE for additional 25% off.
