On Friday, Saint Louis Fashion Week bloggers embarked on a tour of the city on behalf of the St. Louis CVC. A Fun Tyme Limo (stocked with champagne and Redd’s Wicked Apple Ale) picked up the bloggers, half of which were St. Louis newbies by way of New York City, and traveled to several of St. Louis’ many attractions.
