This haphazard boutique stocks new and vintage dresses, jackets, and shirts sourced from Asia. The pale pink walls are adorned with a curvy floral design, and a sparkly chandelier hangs overhead, giving the space a youthful, feminine vibe. Prices are by the rack here, rather than by individual item—some are as low as $30—and shoppers fresh from the nearby fast-fashion strip of Broadway prowl the store for bargains. The diverse offerings include short jersey dresses, Western-inspired fringed vests, plaid jumpers, and long cotton jackets. The bulk of the clothing comes from small, little-known labels like V.O.A. (“Vintage, Omnipresent, and Adorable”), Ever Wind, Khaki Krew, and Ixia. The focus isn’t on boldfaced brand names here, but on scoring well-priced separates, like a black spring jacket or a simple knit cardigan for $30 to $60. Hats, belts, and handbags from Hong Kong and Korea fill stacked cubbies, providing colorful, brightly patterned accessories.
