The Story of How We Met
A long, long time ago, two 5-year-old boys from similar backgrounds met on a playground. The loud one with the yellow hair coaxed and chased a quiet blue-eyed boy until he relented. There they played and laughed and therein sprouted a lifelong bromance.
Eventually these boys grew into gentlemen and the blue-eyed boy married a fabulous green-eyed girl he calls Amanda. For the first year of their marriage—basking in that newlywed glow—Amanda, her new husband and the loud yellow-haired boy happily navigated through life with romantic dinners, weekend luncheons, lovely New England day trips and just about everything a third wheel should get the hint about perhaps not making himself, ahem, a third wheel.
And then it happened. The yellow-haired boy met a yellow-haired Erin. She was wifey material. Amanda rejoiced.
Technically, Erin’s overnight bag met Amanda before Erin did, but that’s a story for a different time. It was a hot and sunny July day when the two ladies eventually met face-to-face. Over champagne in pink tin cans, they bonded and laughed and talked of books, fashion, and food and therein blossomed a friendship to stand the test of time.
Since 2009, Amanda & Erin have shared in their passion for bargains, blogging and beautiful things. In 2013 they finally pulled the trigger and carved out their own space on the internet to begin Red Tag Couture, a blog dedicated to fancy things for people with tight purse strings. They’re excited to start this new venture and to be in the company of so many talented women bloggers before them.
