Downtown Bel Air welcomes a new boutique to Downtown Bel Air. Velvet Trunk, located at 6 Office Street, is a fashion boutique that focuses on a contemporary bohemian style for the everyday woman who desires style but insists on comfort! More about Velvet Trunk and the owner Marissa Drayton-Smalley:

“A Velvet Trunk women knows trends but forges her own path in style. She’s not a one note women who lives in any one style… sometimes she’s edgy rocker chic in a cool tee, distressed jeans and ankle boots, sometimes she’s fun, flirty and feminine and other times she’s layered in cool texture or draped in bohemian comfort and covered in mystery. Just ask her what her style is and she’ll say “it depends on the day…” She knows how to dress her figure and is always confident in every step and move she makes!

Velvet Trunk was built out of a love for fashion, distinctive style and a desire to live passionately!

As a young girl growing up in NYC, I was encouraged to express my individual sense of style. I am always reminded of the day I walked out wearing my mothers blazer, tied off with a belt and sleeves rolled up to fit, and an oversized hat to top it off… Was I told to turn and change? No! It was evident that fashion and style was part of my life; and it’s in your passion that you will find happiness. Following those days I have moved from New York to New Mexico, Colorado, California and then-some in between. With an Undergraduate degree in Apparel and Merchandising from Colorado State University and a wide range of regional fashion influence, I have carefully cultivated a boutique that blends a multitude of women together and gives her everything from stylish comfort for a night out at your favorite local spot to the girl who lives like an NYC fashionista.

I love fashion and promise to give you a cultivated shopping destination that takes its responsibility of bringing you the best fashion seriously! I encourage and respect your feedback… Let me know what you want and we will work hard to provide it to you!”
