"... Down the street, Dina C’s the owner views her role as a sartorial Red Cross worker.

"I look at myself as rescuing the good ol’ days," said Dina Capehart, whose nine-year-old boutique focuses on retro clothes from the 1940s to ’90s. "I find a new home for your things." She excitedly showed me a 1960s Balmain feathered cap that resembled a coconut cake; a jaunty 1980s Yves Saint Laurent top and wrap skirt perfect for Carmen Miranda; and an Elsa Schiaparelli blue leather coat with mink trim that predated PETA. In the back of the one-room store, I noticed wool pencil skirts from the 1950s on the sale rack. Dina said they were a tough sell in steamy Florida, even for $50.

While Leslie tried on a Chanel suit that she had placed on layaway, I buttoned myself into a 1960s leather Gucci bomber jacket and A-line skirt plastered in the lettered logo. I gazed in the mirror and saw a Desperate Housewife of Palm Beach staring back."

"I head to two stores whose owners have become good friends and who keep a "William Rail" for pieces they know I'll like.

Dina C. owns Fab & Funky and, after loving everything on their "William Rail", I leave with 40 great pieces, including 50's LBDs by Trigère and Scaasi, plus sixties Irish couture by Sybil Connolly. I also find unlabelled seventies evening wear that I will most likely sell to a fashion house for it's sheer exuberance."
