Best New Women's Vintage Clothing Store - 2010
All too often, vintage stores, like the waist on a pair of jeans, are too high or too low. They all sell designer wear priced out of most people's budgets, or polyester dresses best-suited for a '70s theme party. Not so with newcomer Bianca Starr. Her well-edited collection of womenswear is nestled in a closet-sized shop, but the careful arrangement of the interior makes it feel much bigger than it is. A dangerously cool pair of studded Miu Miu flats shares space with a spunky jean midriff top. It's not rare to find a colorful, well-preserved plaid skirt for a cool $30 sitting next to a lovely unmarked Oscar de la Renta evening gown. The gown will run you a few hundred dollars, but it's still a good deal.
