Vintage Fashion Friday

Dreamy vintage flowing sheer skirt over floral vintage bathing suit taken at one of our FAVORITE
shops in Carpinteria--- p o r c h
This unique home and garden shop is visual and inspiring andis worth visiting over and over.
In addition to their indoor shop, they have a gorgeous outdoor area!
We could spend all day there!

Can you just get a feel for this great shop p o r c h ?
How about this gorgeous vintage lounging outfit that is just waiting for you at Whimsy!

In town at a quaint corner church, is our model geared up in a vintage dress perfect for a wedding!
We do have a great selection of vintage dresses that would be perfect for your unique attire. And what a green way to go! Vintage clothing is so great for the environment...and the pocketbook!
Whimsy has a great selection (in both stores) of vintage jewelry and accessories to
complete any outfit!
Next we are in Sly's at the corner of 7th and Linden (right near our Whimsy--Home & Garden shop)!
This restaurant is one that we always refer our customers to! It is amazing--always a treat!
Click on the link and read more about Sly's the best seafood, steak and cocktails! I always get the salmon.
It literally melts in my mouth! And the veggies are chosen carefully by James Sly from our local Farmer's Market ad prepared to perfection....! Save room for dessert!

You will want to wear a very special vintage dress such ast this adorable black and white floral.
A vintage black velvet shawl is perfect to drape over your shoulders!

What a great way to showcase your wonderful vintage clothes on such a lovely model, along with showcasing your neighboring shops and eateries! Carpinteria is such a charming seaside town. Had lunch with a gal pal yesterday at the Trattoria. We both decided that we had stepped back into the sixties as we browsed in all the fun shops and boutiques! Don't ever change Carpinteria!! PS: if I purchase one of those dresses will I look like your lovely model?
