Welcome to the first installment of the new Yo! Venice! fashion and shopping column by Lori Kingsnorth. The “themed” column will feature Lori’s finds from Venice Beach shops and neighboring communities.
“Shopping for Stripes”

This C&C dress can be found at ‘hip’tique‘, where proprietress Christine Berardi brings her East Coast influences to Main Street. Hip’tique’ is eclectic yet stylish and achieves comfort with quality. “Beach-side allure meets chic aesthetic.” C&C dress $128.00.
Shopping the Venice Boardwalk for hats is fun! Ocean Front Walk has hats for all occasions no matter what your style. The featured hat with stripes was $30. Bring cash for best deals for your ‘chapeau’ purchase!
These stripes can be found at Varga. The shop was named after Peruvian painter Alberto Vargas (of pin-up girl fame) and his beautiful, playful and sexy pieces. The name is perfectly fitted to a shop that exudes the same energy. While you are there you may feel like you have gone back in time to the closet of your dreams. Red/White Top $30.00.
