On Thursday, June 25, I attended a fashion mixer at “The Shops” in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Not sure what to expect, upon my arrival I came across a long hallway with congested shops. Pleasantly, I spotted my friend who was already  at the mixer. To my surprise, it was a boutique catered to accessories and you know me, I am an accessory fanatic. I was introduced to the owner and creative director Velvet Lattimore.
The boutique mainly exhibited handbags with a small display of fashion jewelry and other accessories which Velvet plans on expanding in the near future. I was very impressed that she decided to pursue her vast dream and opened up her own shop. What an ambitious business woman!
 This boutique offers luxury designer brands at affordable prices. Many of the bags were unique and stylish, versatile for various occasions.
They also had a small selection of garments outside of the boutique. I was rummaging through the rack and found a few pieces that evoked some ideas for opted outfits. I was having a little fun and posed for some pics  displaying a couple of the garments.  If you like what you see and are further interested in purchasing, visit Vedazzling Accessories (click link) or visit the shop and meet the lovely Velvet for a more personable shopping experience!
