When attempting to wear vintage, you usually look like you’re auditioning for West Side Story. (Man, you love poodle skirts.)
Madeleine Kirsh can help. The stylist behind famed vintage showroom C. Madeleine’s will keep your foray into vintage high fashion (not low costume).
Kirsh, who’s worked alongside Patricia Field, and her fleet of experts can tread lightly (Chanel bags, high-waisted skirts) or not (Victorian frocks evocative of a non-Big Love Chloë Sevigny).
Have a black tie gala? The newly opened Couture Room, kept under lock and key, is a boutique within the boutique, housing gowns from Oscar de la Renta, Bob Mackie, and Halston.
After picking (and altering) a dress to suit you, the stylists can complement with striking costume jewelry, modern Jimmy Choos, or a beaded Judith Leiber clutch.
So you’ll leave feeling pretty, oh so pretty.
C. Madeleine’s, 13702 Biscayne Boulevard, North Miami (cmadeleines.com). To book an appointment, call 305-945-7770.
