Snapshot city guide

JOURNEY with me.. Dressed to the NINES and DISCOVER three of my favorite places to spend my time.. Munching and TREASURE HUNTING. Dressing it all up in GUCCI INSPIRED looks.

I love me some Gucci inspiration, and if I’m ever in a style rut - I call on the Gucci Goodness to come and bring its magic my way.

Taking some of that Gucci goodness magic, I’m bringing you along into my neck of the woods and sharing a Snapshot City Guide of Costa Mesa, CA.

Maybe you just need a jolt of inspiration, or you happen to be visiting Orange County and you want to know where to eat and shop - either way I’m here to help!

Pancakes at Dick church’s

Nothing fancy here, but it’s the best little mom and pop place for breakfast or lunch. Nothing has changed since the 70’s and it makes for a cozy and instagram-worthy stop before a day of shopping!

thrifting at Goodwill orange county never disappoints.

For a quick dose of thrifting I always stop at the Goodwill on 19th street in Costa Mesa. It’s not as large as some locations, so you can really search through everything without being overwhelmed.

vintage hunting at swellegant.

Digging through Swellegant Vintage store is like stepping back in time. This is where I find 1940’s house dresses and 1960’s bathing suits. It’s always full of treasures and so much fun to play dress up in the quirky changing rooms as the back.
