Profile

This venue is closed.

Growing up as a woman’s size 14, Deb Malkin hated the shapeless floral prints that filled her closet. In 2008, she opened the first plus-size vintage boutique in the country, outfitting the warehouse-size space with pale yellow walls, a smattering of chandeliers, and zebra-print dressing rooms. The selection includes everything from Svoboda premium denim to Jones New York blazers—but only in sizes 10 and up. Malkin spent a year traveling the country hunting for thrift finds like “Liza in Vegas”–esque sparkle tops, leather jackets, and glam dresses from the forties to eighties. She continues to buy women’s vintagewear, from lingerie to mint-condition knee-high boots. Malkin is on a first-name basis with most customers, who range from burlesque dancers to women who haven’t tried on clothing in years. During downtime, groups hold monthly meetings and book-launch parties in the Re/Dress lounge, which features plush velvet chairs, leopard-print pillows, and a découpage ceiling collage depicting curvy, full-figured cabaret models.
