One of my fave summer destinations is Wildwood, New Jersey. The beauty of this shore town is that it maintains its kitschy, retro “doo wop” look, while at the same time adding fun new additions that brings something unique to each visit.
It has become a tradition to make the (at least) three hour drive to this shore town. We love the lights and activity of the boardwalk. This year the Kong ride was added which harks back to a giant King Kong statue that resided over a Wildwood amusement pier.
The beach is beautiful and clean.
All of the photos were taken using the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone.
Last weekend I visited the boardwalk in Asbury Park, New Jersey. This is one of my favorite shore spots and each year I discover new interesting spots. We went to see the Promenade of Mermaids, but I stumbled upon a pinup clothing shop, a pirate, and some vintage guitars.
Retro Model at Bettie’s Bombshells
Bettie’s Bombshells is a boardwalk boutique specializing in vintage inspired designer pinup couture. I picked up some sunglasses and a Bettie Page low cut t-shirt. I want to go back though to get a retro bathing suit.
We listened to the “Creepy Bard” (the name he goes by) play guitar on the boardwalk.
We found some amazing vintage guitar. Asbury Park is home to music venues and you can hear music almost every night of the week.
All of the photos in this post were taken with the Hipstmatic app on my iPhone. I used a combination of Tinto 1884 and Louis XIV infrared to get a dreamy, hyper real look.
Yesterday I went into New York City to see the lights and decorations. It was unseasonably warm and the streets were jam packed with tourists, but i still find New York to be magical at Christmas time. It made me think of the scene in “Elf” where they run around the city looking at all the differently decorated Christmas trees. This was taken across the street from Radio City Music Hall.
