I just discovered the most darling boutique that sells both vintage and new clothing.
It's in Burbank and it's called Swift.
Even though it's absolutely tiny, I spent about an hour there, browsing the racks of clothing, the vintage purses, earrings and necklaces old and new. They have vintage shoes too, but I get turned off by the thought of wearing someone's old shoes.
The store's collection is edited nicely, and the sales tags have little notes, recommending what to wear with a blousy top or tank.
It's just what I need, because I'm not the type to go to a huge vintage clothing store and sift through big bins and endless racks of "duds."
