Esther and Baby Blue

Posted by Seea on


Meet Esther. Daughter of infamous style master Brian Bent, it's no surprise that Esther has great style herself. Sun and fun waves were on tap for our San O surf date this weekend, and I just about flipped when she showed up in this sweet 62 Mercury, which she calls "Baby Blue"!

It's almost summer - no wetsuits required!
Sun & swell = lines at San O
While we were waiting to get in (there was already a line at 9AM - summer is on the way!),  Esther told me all about "Baby Blue". Turns out this Mercury originally belonged to Ester's parents, and was the car that she grew up in, bouncing around on the bench seat in back. When the Bent's sold the car to finance another project, Esther was crushed! She never really forgot about that car, so when she was finally old enough to buy one herself, she started looking around for another old Mercury to replace her childhood car. Her timing was perfect! Turns out the Bent's sold the car to a family friend, who was now looking to sell! With a little help from pops, the car is now back in the Bent Family, spiffed up and painted Esther's favorite color.

A story like that deserves a good shaka!
 & so does Esther! What a fun day!
I am so happy to have met Esther - with a couple sewing machine, good music and weather like this, who knows what we will dream up...
All I can say is that "Baby Blue" is now the official Seea Babes San O vehicle, and that Neon Indian will be our Summer soundtrack.
