Swing open the door and you'll feel like you've been transported to the wardrobe of a glamorous actress from cinema's golden age. Antique chandeliers hang from the ceiling and cast a glow on rows of hats, accessories, party dresses, dressy shoes, etc. Just looking at all the beautiful items in this gem of a shop is a pleasure in itself.
The shop can be a bit hard to find unless you know where to look, but it's a frequent stopping point for stylists and people in the fashion industry who are looking for a rare and original piece.
The concept of the store is “Sweet and Sensual” and it boasts an array of items that are daring, yet playful, and suited for a sophisticated woman, rather than the usual simple and sweet styles.
There is an abundance of feminine materials like chiffon, lace, flower prints, and ribbon motif items, with special care given to detail and style. Headdresses are another store specialty.
20's to 70's vintage dresses, lingerie, party dresses, etc, can be found here, as well as other novelty pieces such as circus costumes. Vintage lovers and newcomers alike will be charmed.
