introducing a new little feature on the blog: "girls in custard heart vintage," a spotlight on happy customers sporting their new pieces from the shop. this lovely lady is tiombe wiley, a local girl who's wearing a little striped sweater she bought a few weeks back. isn't she adorable? she's also as sweet as she is cute, and agreed to let me ask her a couple nosy questions.

occupation: technical support specialist
where are you from and where do you presently live? I grew up in Daly City, CA and now I live in the San Francisco Portola district.
what's your favorite decade for vintage fashion? Hard choice but it would have to be the 70's decade. There's just something about those leisure suits that compliments the female form while adding some edge.

a revolutionary-lovin' girl who's big into the 70s? now that's my kind of girl!
