Who is Red Dress Shoppe?
My vision for Red Dress Shoppe sprouted in 2001. My philosophy has always been good style does not need to cost a fortune. I spent years - starting as a teenager - shopping at thrift stores and vintage stores, hunting for unique items to find my own personal style. My own fashion roots stem from 20 years in alternative music and art scenes.
For the webstore, I try to pick the best items I can find at the desired price point. Unfortunately, most of the cute stuff out there ends up being from junior/young contemporary manufacturers, where everything is made too teeny-tiny! I regret that many of our items run so small!
Over the past 10 years, I have seen many larger (some HUGE!) competing websites pop-up.... while I now find myself juggling a toddler, a struggling business, and now a second baby! (How did I grow up so fast, haha!) Though my time is now limited, I still love what I do, and I hope I can keep finding and designing cute clothes. THANK YOU to all my loyal customers for sticking with me through the hard times. And I appreciate new customers for giving me the chance, even though I am obviously not the hottest and freshest website out there!
