Profile

Owner Leslie McKeown stocks her charming boutique, opened in 2003, with the latest in vintage-inspired clothing and accessories. Her store displays some of its wares—metallic leather bags, seventies-influenced belts—in antique armoires, and retro Sputnik chandeliers hang overhead. Downtown clotheshorses head to the shop for its well-edited selection of Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent, which features shrunken-tweed ponchos and lacy tops. They also stop in for pieces by local designer Otis & Maclain, whose designs keep company with Rory Beca’s dresses and tops. But it’s carefully tailored basics like buttery C&C tees that keep the regulars coming back.
