Hi all! I’m Jaime. Welcome to Red Velvet, so named for 3 reasons: 1. Red velvet cake is the best, obviously. 2. I’m a redhead. 3. I have an obsession with vintage style…red velvet is a nod to my appreciation of fashion and good garment construction.
I’m a 20-something who works in clinical psychiatric research in New York City. I live in a artsy suburb of NYC with my longtime jazz musician boyfriend and rescued kitty. I’m a former ballet dancer who volunteers as a ballet and tap teacher at a program for at-risk inner city youth.
I work in the area of suicide treatment and research with veterans. So after dealing with some heavy stuff all day, I really enjoy unwinding by being crafty, thrift/vintage shopping, and planning thousands of projects that I hope will someday come to fruition.
I love doing anything crafty: sewing, jewelry making, painting/drawing, DIY decor, crocheting, compulsive organizing, and killing plants (not on purpose).
I love anything with a retro, art deco/nouveau and midcentury aesthetic.
Here I share all manner of things creative, vintage, thrifty, inspiring, etc.
