The Family Jewels

UMM… ADORABLE. That about sums it up. The Family Jewels is for that girl who loves to dress like the classic beauties of the olden days. From 1920s flapper dresses to 1950s full flowery skirts to 1980s flamboyant sequins, the dresses are superb. While dresses reign supreme, skirts, blouses, purses, hats and jewelry nicely round out the womens’ collection. And don’t forget the heels—they’re to die for. They’ve got the most extensive collection of vintage heels I’ve ever seen. Plus, vintage swimwear that actually looks functional and wearable! That’s a first-time-find for me. This little Chelsea boutique has such great womens’ clothing that I chose not to focus on the mens’ selection, but they do have suits and accessories for men as well. The pricing can get a little steep, but you certainly get what you pay for. Unlike other vintage stores in New York that charge an arm and a leg for any old piece of cloth, here the garments are well cared for, unique and authentic.

Fluke Vintage Clothing

A LOVELY COLLECTION. Fluke offers a curated selection of sophisticated vintage clothing. Dresses, skirts, blouses and jumpsuits are organized by color and span many centuries of fashion. There are unique, funky pieces—like a sheepskin vest, and also classic pieces—like a lovely 1980s Geoffrey Beene grey mini dress. The accessories may be few, but they are fantastic. Also, the childrens’ clothing is adorable. Everything is cuter when it’s miniature!
