The sartorial experts at Far Out Vintage curate a shop full of unique dresses, shirts, and shoes, specializing in funky finds from the '60s through the '80s. Recently featured items have included a vibrant pink-and-white-striped dress ($18) that reflects the carefree spirit of the '80s, a decade when winter inexplicably vanished. Guys can browse eclectic shirts, such as a tropical purple-and-orange button-up (men's styles range from $10 to $40). A timeless piece, an envelope purse ($18) carries easily: slip the delicate chain over your shoulder, clasp the handle, or simply mail it to your next destination. Though the selection rotates as shoppers snap up singular items, staples include gals' tops ($10–$18), dresses ($14–$56), shoes ($10–$40), and assorted knickknacks ($1–$15), such as Molly Ringwald's childhood collection of Tiger Beat.
