Jessica Fechner, owner of private vintage showroom Lâché et Occupé (lacheetoccupe.com), and Artists & Fleas vet Giana Stanigar of the Greedy Seagull (etsy.com/shop/thegreedyseagull) have opened this boutique together, stocking unique women’s clothing from the Victorian era through the 1980s. The shop features wall-to-wall pinup-girl artwork, a velvet couch and a large skylight flooding the space with a natural glow. Even the register is a repurposed Prohibition-era bar. Browse through dresses ($45–$200), separates ($25–$60) and accessories ($15–$60), then head to the changing room, created from a converted 1920s photography backdrop, to try on romantic frocks such as a 1960s Harry Keiser floral cocktail number ($178) and a 1950s cotton-and-lace day dress ($78). Round out your look with 1940s Turkish brass bracelets ($278 each) and a 1920s emerald glass necklace ($128). Take advantage of the on-site alterations ($20–$100), or get gratis style advice from a personal shopper, available by appointment.
