in the news

CBS 3 was at vintage connection today to do a story on why vintage clothes are getting more and more popular! reporter, nicole brewer, showed up to get the scoop. i got the help of one great intern, a super cute model, and 4 fabulous outfits to help me tell my story!

the first step was getting leslie in hair and make up...

the outfits were put together and separated by the biggest trends of the season...

we were prepped and nicole did a quick interview with me...

i had to get some shots of my super intern, sara. she was wearing a great vintage dress and cardigan that was handed down from family!

nicole loved this 1950's tulle skirt, but took home a pretty, pink romper just in time for her big 4th of july party!

to get the full story and see the looks we put together from summer's hottest trends, check out the CW, Philly 57's 10 o'clock news on wednesday, july 1st!!
