The fashion designer says her love of the historical style is something that has passed on to her.
Her grandparents have collected antique teddy bears, while her father has been obsessed with booze since birth.
“He’s been dragging me to flea markets, random guys from Craigslist homes, and all work since I was a kid,” she explained.
When it comes to what draws her toward vintage items, Carly says the “craftsmanship and quality” back then was much better than it is today.
“I love that the things of the past were made with a purpose, and were made with love,” she explains.
And they have the same love and feeling today. So when I see things in my home, I can almost imagine all the memories that were made with them back in the day.
The blonde started wearing vintage clothes a couple of years ago, and has since built a loyal following on social media as fans award her the look.
She currently has more than 730,000 followers on TikTok and more than 200,000 on Instagram.
In her latest TikTok, Carly shares her dog outfit of the day. The dog looks dressed “like a colonial grandmother” with a hood “because it fits her so well.”
