With the recent cold spell, getting dressed has favored function heavily over form.
Give the parka a rest and wrap up in an affordable find from the Mission’s latest vintage boutique, Minxy, instead.
Owner Tuc Luong, a retail vet who collected and sold vintage on eBay before opening her shop, can give your winter wardrobe some flash with a gorgeous white ’50s coat with rhinestone-studded buttons, ’80s cardis (like a black-and-gold geometric Kohler number), leather and suede skirts, velvet blazers, and more. Top it off with a modest selection of statement jewelry.
Stay warm in vintage cowboy boots — in everything from basic tan leather and snakeskin to a white pair embellished with Southwest-inspired birds. How chill.
