VDV IS 6! We celebrated our Grand Re-Opening and 6 year anniversary all in one at our Del Mar location last weekend! We had so much fun celebrating with everyone who came out and want to share a little bit more about the event for those who couldn’t make it.
To kick off the event, the first 20 shoppers received a goodie bag with a VDV tee, mini perfumes from Maison Louis Marie, Coconut Body Glow from Kopari, earrings from Petit Moments, hair products from Playa, a $15 gift card to Sweetfin, Mineral Cream from Coola, a sample bag of supplements from Liveli, a facial cleanser from Dr.Roebucks, goods from Corepower Yoga, and discount cards to Cryotherapy.
We also had live music from DJ Sunburnt Reynolds, the cutest floral bar from Isari Flower Studio, and drinks from Harland Brew, Claxton Cellars, and Juneshine. To top it all off we had the most amazing cheeseboards from Venissimo and desserts from Flower Child.
We were so thrilled to have so many new faces, as well as some of our regular babes, come to join the celebration of 6 wonderful years at Van De Vort. A few of our fav local influencers including @Shestyledwhat, @fashionablysurfed, and @frompalmtosea stopped by to celebrate too!
We also wanted to take a moment to thank all of the hard working people who made VDV 2.0 come to life! Alexis Garrett Design for her incredible interior design work, Tam Ashworth for the most beautiful floral arrangements throughout the store, Gillian Flynn for her one-of-a-kind Vintage collection inside VDV, Remington Weinger for her stunning custom painting, and finally our general contractor Connor Barnsworth for all of his hard work throughout this process.
Thank you to everyone who made it out for our special day, we loved being able to host you in our amazing new location. Check out our event highlight on Instagram to see all the stories from the day.
2. Pick the Perfect Outfit- Whether you want to go all out or play it cool, you're going to need something and babe, we've got options for you! Head over to our "Racing Season" collection to find all of our fav looks.
3. Make Sure to Cover Up- With June gloom finally over, prepare to have sunshine weather all day. We suggest covering up with one of our fav Lack of Color hats and of course, apply some sunscreen!
4. Keep the Party Going- After the races make sure to head out and keep the party alive, either by going out to a fun dinner or getting tickets for the real after party. The 2-19 After Pony Party at Rancho Valencia Resort and Spa is our personal preference! Snag tickets and have yourself a day!
We're the type to make a statement and stand out from the crowd. Check out some of our favorite eye-catching looks to wear next week!
The Guiding Light Dress by Atoir is for the girl who's just a little bit extra. Pair this with some strappy heels for the special day.
The Move Over Dress by Kaite May is form fitting and so flattering! We love the draped back detail that gives it a dramatic effect!
The Coco Jumper by Flynn Skye will have heads turning and is both cute and comfy for the long day ahead. Add a pair of silver heels to spice it up.
The Basile Off The Shoulder Dress by For Love & Lemons is sweet and so feminine. The sheer embroidered sleeves add such a nice touch, and it would look so cute paired with a simple hat and silver jewelry!
Have fun and make sure to enjoy the party this opening day. Let the races begin!
