When she's not busy snapping dressed-to-the-nines partygoers at LA's many speakeasy-inspired haps, stylish LA-bred photog Nicole Loretta of Paper Moon Vintage can also be found peddling pre-loved wonders at a host of top-notch vintage shows. Fans of Loretta's throwback photo booth and eye for vintage treasures can experience both at her award-winning Los Feliz boutique, which opened just under a year ago. (Oh, and John Galliano is a fan).
Specializing in Prohibition- and Art Deco-era fashion, the 1,000-square-foot boutique carries women's and men's apparel and accessories from the Victorian age through the '60s. "Once polyester came into use, that's when I stop," Loretta tells us— so don't expect to find frocks for your next Studio 54 party here. "I also steer towards fancier dress, such as cocktail and formalwear, and I have a permanent costume section with lots of fun and whimsical items."
In addition to housing her crowd-pleasing crescent moon booth, the shop also offers 25% off every full moon (the next one's August 10). Nice!
Paper Moon Vintage is open Tuesday through Saturday from 12pm to 7pm and Sunday from 12pm to 5pm; closed Monday.
