Just outside Beverly Hills city limits, Timeless Vixen
is considered "the" place to shop for incomparable vintage fashion, and you won't want to miss it. Owners Lauren Lepire and Douglas Walker transformed their passion into a business by opening their storefront doors at 1100 S. Beverly Drive, Los Angeles, in 2017. Propelling their business forward, the pair has been able to obtain and sell one-of-a-kind items from today's and yesteryears' designers.
As one reviewer put it, "I am a collector of vintage and own a vintage store myself, and Timeless Vixen is the Best of the Best." And she added, "I saw pieces in the shop that I've only dreamed of!"
Indeed. Timeless Vixen has sold iconic items, such as a custom couture cream black sequin silk sailor set worn by Barbra Streisand during an appearance on The Judy Garland Show in 1963.
Timeless Vixen's closets contain evening wear, coats, outerwear, day dresses, separates, and footwear. You can even find wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses here.
Going back further in time, Timeless Vixen has flapper dresses from the 1920s, such as a small French mint-green beaded sequin chiffon. Do not miss out on the pair of 1890's Cammeyer couture Victorian gold and purple leather lace-up boots that the owners call a "museum-quality treasure."
Looking for a new to you, used cocktail dress? How about an old-fashioned 1958 Ceil Chapman baby-blue lace number?
Visit Timeless Vixen whether you have a need or simply a desire. Call for a one-on-one showing at (310) 734-7989.
Head over the hill to Burbank to visit Slone Vintage
, located in Magnolia Park close to Warner Bros. and Walt Disney Studios. They repair and clean all items before placing them on hangers in the shop.
You will find ladies' wear here in a variety of sizes. Recent examples include a:
Sleeveless embroidered sixties maxi dress in red and white floral, size medium
Pastel green lace maxi from the 1940s made with acetate and lace, size large
Seventies Oscar De La Renta cotton navy and white shift dress with belt, size small
White Emma Domb ball gown from the fifties, size small
Slone Vintage is open Wednesday through Saturday, 12-6:30 p.m., and Sundays, 1-5 p.m., and is located at 3208 W Magnolia Blvd. in Burbank.
The owner, Amy, writes on Yelp, "Not only is Slone Vintage a store, but it's a passage back into time, come chill out on the sofa, read some books, or try on some clothes. Either way, let's just enjoy the ride with what we've got!"
Located at 111 N. La Brea Ave. in Los Angeles, you can take a breather at Recess
. Owner Marie Monsod is a fantasy model influenced by her love of nature, Lord of the Rings, and pre-Raphaelite paintings. But the store is chock-full of consignment items and Monsod's picks.
At Recess, you will find designer clothing, accessories, jewelry, and a splash of home décor. From Gucci's 12 bezel bracelet watches to a Gump's San Francisco paisley silk dress, you will find some top-notch vintage fashion here. Maybe your style is more like either a polka dot prairie ball gown by Laura Ashley or a 5-strand Prince Kamy Yar necklace.
When Valentino-designed jewelry, a double lapel houndstooth reefer coat, or a quilted jacket and wrap skirt set comes in, they sell out quickly. Do not miss your chance. Once you have visited Recess, you are sure to venture back time and again.
