Everyone knows fashion is cyclical, so it’s no surprise everything at Malena’s Vintage Boutique is more fashionable than it’s ever been.
If one thing’s certain in the fickle world of fashion, it’s that every look will cycle back into style eventually. Usually those trends operate on a 20-year time frame (hence the current ‘90s craze), but those patterns move in wider arcs, too. Take the pleated black taffeta dress above. It may look like something out of the 1880s — the lace bodice, high neck, princess sleeves and pleated skirt all feel deeply Victorian — but in fact it’s a product of the 1970s, another era when those same details were showing up on the runways and in the streets.
A dress like this evokes a romantic fantasy of another time — a specialty at Malena’s Vintage Boutique, which stocks a trove of clothing and accessories spanning a century. It’s the perfect resource for those looking to undertake some fashionable time travel, where you can scan racks of one-of-akind pieces from every decade.
This dress is priced at $225 (and the chaise lounge is available for rent from Modern Relic Rentals), and other pieces at Malena’s start at only $16. Stop by the store today to pick up your own piece of history.
