Who: Chick Down Town's vintage boutique
What: Distinct and designer pieces with an emphasis on dresses
When: 1950s -1980s. Their 60s selection is particularly strong.
Why: Because their meticulous vintage collection keeps distracting me when I put together shopping posts.
How Much: Under $100 for some items and up to $1200 for a vintage Valentino evening gown. (We won't even think about the price of the diamond and platinum jewelry, but we will stare at it lovingly.) Expect to pay around $200 for most items, which isn't bad for excellent vintage.
Favorite pieces: 1970s wine jersey dress $120 (want!); 1960s mod faux two piece mini dress $320; 1950s yellow lace prom dress $250; 1980s leather body con halter dress $230
