White Collar Crime
Fabulous Fashion Finds Reworked Vintage
Suspect: Ashley Nobbe of Fabulous Fashion Finds.
Wanted for: her killer revamped vintage.
Weapons: scissors, needle, and thread.
Crimes: Consider the suspect a master of disguise — reworking vintage garb into unique pieces. She has also been known to turn outdated, flouncy skirts into stylish bubble minis, moth-eaten sweaters into asymmetrical shirts, and tacky ’80s tops into off-the-shoulder cocktail dresses.
Accomplices: Although she has an arsenal of pieces available for sale at reasonable prices (less than $100), it’s said that she will consort with others about restyling. Unsuspecting victims meet her at her private studio, where she transforms their antiquated threads into covetable, one-of-a-kind garments.
Resolution: case clothed.
Available at Scarlett Boutique, 8267 South Dixie Highway (305-665-1234). For more information, go to fabulousfashionfinds.net.
