Location No. 2: Old Store
What attracted me to this old store was the 76 sign. I remember this gas station symbol from when I was a kid. Slowly as you grow up, you sometimes stop seeing certain symbols, but you never realize their absence until you happen to see one again and remember. Usually by that time they are on their way to being vintage…well for people my age anyway! Lol. A little history on the 76 gas station: Formally Union 76 gasoline, it was first introduced in 1932. The name referred to the 1776 United States Declaration of Independence, and was also the octane rating of the gasoline in 1932 (reference, Wikipedia). The sign also matched my shoes of choice which was a plus as well!
Keeping with the rugged feel of the store, I styled this look with True Religion boyfriend jeans, a Zara Tee with an African-American lady in vintage attire with a huge afro (that I can’t find online anywhere), and a pair of L.A.M.B. bright orange patent pumps that I lucked up on at Nordstrom Rack. To add a little “pop,” I put my hair to the side and wore a white blazer with polka-dot lining.
My sister captured the look of this location wearing a cream colored lace tank, denim jacket, olive green cargo pants, and cute black military boots with floral lining. Her outfit is very in for back to school and fall!
