Unlike new clothes, vintage clothing is already broken in, has had time to establish its pedigree, and is almost always house trained. Save on ensemble obedience training with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of vintage apparel and accessories at Minxy Boutique.
Adornments from another era populate Minxy Boutique's modern storefront, recently named to 7x7's Best of San Francisco 2011 list, including one-of-a-kind dresses, jackets, shoes, and jewelry. Couture conjurers gently cleanse each item with environmentally safe detergent before altering the hem, if necessary. An eclectic selection of dresses ($20–$55) welcomes warmer weather, including a draped multipatterned halter dress and a vibrant floral mini dress, which incites whispers of gossip between chatty flowerbeds. Lavish legs in luxurious decades with a variety of pants ($20–$40), such as a pair of baby-blue pleated trousers. Rugged boots and elegant heels ($15–$120) complete vintage ensembles, and Minxy's jewelry ($17–$40) expertly accessorizes outfits. Vintage devotees should check the boutique's blog for the latest additions, as new items arrive weekly via the tear in the space-time continuum that's located in the store's broom closet.
