It seems more than a few of LA's vintage meccas took the idea of spring cleaning seriously. Like fellow gem-filled boutique Flounce, vintage and consignment shop Simply Vintageous has also packed up their treasure trove of pre-loved apparel and accessories from decades past, moving from their West Hollywood spot across from the Pacific Design Center to the charming nabe of Larchmont, where they'll make their debut at 1pm today.
"Our store was successful on Melrose but we feel it will do even better on Larchmont," store owner Beth LaMure tells us, noting the void of vintage on the walkable shopping stretch. With price points at $135 to $365, the boutique—which began as a holiday pop-up specializing in TV and film wardrobe castaways—offers pieces from the Art Deco age to the '90s with some 21st century picks sprinkled in. Given that throwback fashion eye candy series Mad Men is back on the tube next week, this might be an opportune time to deep dive into psychedelic territory (sartorially speaking, anyway) for those upcoming dress-up parties.
Simply Vintageous is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11am to 6pm.
