Today, I visited a wonderful neighborhood vintage shop called “A Little Wicked”. I had heard many good things about this place and finally decided check it out to see what all the hub-bub was about.
Tucked away on East Houston Street, this little gem was created by Texas-born sisters Bianca and Robyn Moreno. Defined as “Every girls dream closet”, the shop is packed with great vintage pieces. Its a beautiful space filled with hand picked garments from the 50’s to the 90’s all neatly sorted and displayed by colour!
I loved the “$20 rack of awesomeness”, it is a nice change of pace from other vintage shops where most clothing is priced sky high.
I had the pleasure of meeting Sammy, A.L.W.’s manager, and she is a true delight! Not only is she a vintage shopping expert, (this gal KNOWS her stuff!), but she is one of the kindest people I have ever met. She is also the creator of Sammydvintage.com, one of my favorite blogs! Sammy has a great eye for styling and I was happy to be her model for the afternoon at the shop! She selected this gorgeous 1950’s sweetheart dress with a whimsical print and sequined details for me to try on and I was instantly in love! The second piece she picked was this colourful 1960’s bathing suit. This made me feel like I was a bathing beauty, ready to slather myself in baby oil and sit out on the shore! (Of course, I would NEVER tan on purpose nowadays, lol).
I had a great time exploring the shop and chatting it up with Sammy. I will definitely be back! If you haven’t come in yet, now is the time!
Outside the shop, love the chalkboard messages!Tons of great pieces to look throughAccessories galore!Who wears short-shorts…?Sammy wears short-shorts (and looks damn good while she’s doing it! LOL) Isn’t she gorgeous? Such a sweet thing!Loved the artwork on the walls. Everything about this place is meticulously put together!
