The door to the entrance is black, with no sign or indication; yet for those who know it, it’s there, “Open Sesame” – Shareen Vintage, Ali Baba’s cave of vintage treasures.

[article_sponsor sponsor_id=4973]Inside the “no boys allowed” vintage haven of an apartment, ready-to-wear pieces in floral designs, jackets in leather or skin… and especially gowns in all lengths and material; can be found in hundreds, perfectly stacked and sorted by length and color.

A sensual Christian Lacroix gown, asymmetric 1970’s piece in bright colors, full-length evening gowns for worldly cocktails, many other very short ones to go dancing… fancy or casual maxi dresses or mini skirts; you can find everything there, for all tastes, occasions and budgets.

Prices won’t be an issue since nothing in the shop exceeds $100 and majority of the dresses cost between $35 and $70.

Shareen Mitchell, the owner helps you in your quest to choose while you sit in the large sofas sipping a glass of wine or indulging in sweets.

A small moment of bliss, simple and 100% feminine.

Shhh…FD Confidential!
