Most of my customers wear a splash of vintage with their everyday clothing. They pair it like this: a seventies owl pendant with a tee shirt or a fifties handbag with a modern dress.
Then there are Ray and Joanie. They wear full on vintage, all the time. They even have some fictional vintage alter egos. Joanie “plays” a movie star and Ray takes on the persona of her devoted photographer.
Follow along with this recent Ray-and-Joanie visit.
Here are Ray and Joanie
They have created their own vintage accessories to complement their clothing, like this newspaper.
Joanie wore one outfit then changed into another on this particular day
Ray was shopping for a new hat…
and a new tie,
while Joanie was looking for just the right brooch
Here she is, posing for a snapshot.

Could there be more to this move star and photographer relationship?

I am a vintage clothing shop owner living and working in rural north Florida. I believe in adding a little vinegar and molasses to my greens, having my coffee outside whenever possible, and mixing something vintage into every room and every outfit.
