Although our throwback fashion scene has lost a few stops, there's one assuring addition that has already softened the blow of this year's vacancies. As of last December, House of Vintage has been serving LA treasure hunters in Downtown's party-happy Historic Core.
Located around the corner from stylish Sixth and Spring, the 750-square-foot boutique stocks a mix of vintage and designer pieces spanning from the 1920s to the late '90s. Expect to find luxury labels like Oscar de la Renta, Lanvin, Versace, Vivienne Westwood, Geoffrey Beene, and Courregès, among others; pricing ranges from $35 for accessories and up to $6K to top-shelf merch.
House of Vintage is open daily from 12 to 6pm.
