The St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club, home to the weekly St. Pete Shuffle, is an Old Florida hot spot for cool entertainment (like the AntiWarpt pre-party). MISRED Outfitters owner Sara Stonecipher brought her cavalcade of vintage wonders to the Shuffle, with hair and makeup provided by VLVT Salon stylists Albie Mulchuny, Michelle Pillucere and Carly Miller; style assistants Marybeth Williams and Hunter Moore; and models (top photo, from left) Avery Moore, Erica Diffee and Lisa Spurdle. bemisred.com, stpeteshuffle.com.

Sara Stonecipher: MISRED Outfitters

Inspiration: "About 20 years ago my mom (Patti Rondolino; she established the Designers Consigner when it was on Beach Drive) created the first high end consignment shop in downtown St. Petersburg. ... In 2008 I was fortunate enough to study under one of the best vintage fashion stylists in the industry, Marjorie Harper of theURBANcollection/CreateThatStyle.com. It was through my work with her that I refined my love of vintage and realized that it was very much a viable industry."

If she had a time machine, Sara would go back to... the '70s. "There is something magical about the silhouettes from Halston's Studio 54 days, inspired by muses like Bianca Jagger."

Welcome praise: "When a customer has been in our store for 5 or 10 minutes before they realize we are a secondhand establishment ... We present ourselves as if we are selling garments for hundreds of dollars, yet here you will spend closer to $20."
