Meryl Streep in "Out Of Africa"

Feel like taking a trip on an African safari but you don’t have the time or the budget? Shop the Alameda Point Antiques Faire and go native for less. Two months ago, it was almost as hot as the Sahara desert at the Point but that didn’t stop antique treasure hunters to come out in droves for their shopping fix, braving the record heat. Welcome to the jungle of the former jet runways where you can find plenty of options for the luxe-haute hippie vibe fit for any safari.

Go for vintage and find one of a kind glamorous fashion that designers are still inspired by today. Plan to play dress up with strong silhouettes & accessories.

Here's my Vintage Style Solutions column in The Point from last month:   Rejoice, beach goers! Have you heard? It's officially summer! That means it’s bathing suit season, but fear not Faire goers. The retro trend is making waves. Look for flattering styles to fit every shape and size.  Designers have brought back the maillot, with its basic tunic shaped sheath design that offers coverage yet is still seductive.

The new swimsuits have updated functional fabrics but the originals had some... Continue reading
