It’s that time of year to get your 

wardrobe together for the 


What better way to do it in vintage 

and retro inspired pieces. I went to 

four vintage stores in Memphis,TN 

(Found Memphis,Flashbacks,Red 

Velvet Vintage & Hoot & Louise). 

They all have its own niche and a 

huge inventory of vintage goodies!

   First stop is Found Memphis on 

board ave. (the border of midtown) 

in Binghamton area. FM open their 

doors 18 months ago during board 

spring art walk. When I enter the 

store it was like stepping into Iona 

apartment (Annie Potts of pretty in 

pink movie). I mean they have a 

great inventory of mid-century to 

early 80s;especially,in coats,vinyls 

& accessories. Paige the owner of 

FM greet us with a warm smile

help you”!

I lightened my hair with two packs of lightners,40 Cream developer and Amore hair dye in “Emerald”,pick any dye of your choice. The reason I got the 40 cream developer because I can take my time to lighten my thick hair. The lightening process is slower.

If your hair is relax go to a professional!
