Virgo offers carefully curated vintage clothing downtown

Virgo BoutiqueBy simply glancing at its storefront, it would be easy to mistake Virgo for just another shop off Santee Alley hawking glittery costume jewelry or Gucci knock-offs. But those who enter will be pleasantly surprised by its offerings—mainly, a carefully curated selection of men’s and women’s vintage clothing, lovingly refashioned into contemporary finds. Matronly ‘80s shifts are reimagined as flirty minidresses; jeans and denim vests are studded, resembling the kind of rock ‘n’ roll look Balmain sells for thousands—yet most items in the store are under $100. Store owners Alejandra Hernandez and Rana Shoar also peddle their own Boos & Besito, a line of ribbon and cloth accessories that jazz up an otherwise-minimal top or pair of shoes. 216 E. 9th St., downtown, 213.988.8899.
