Retro Vixen

Retro Vixen, a super cute boutique and pin up photography studio, debuted on 39th Street this past Saturday. We popped in after our ice creams and wow! The color palette is soft and feminine while the dresses, shoes, purses and kitschy gifts are fun and edgy, a nice balance for the sweetness of those cotton candy walls.

We have three smoke shops, a couple liquor stores, a tattoo parlor and a ton of restaurants on 39th Street, but clothing boutiques have seriously been lacking. It's nice to see things balance out a bit more. Welcome to the neighborhood Retro Vixen, we'll be back soon!
Owner Melissa Evans. Isn't she gorgeous?
Love her dress, hair, make up, her tattoos, everything!

The shoe wall. Great styling, great presentation.
I'm in love with those platform heels and deathly afraid
of them at the same time.

Cinch it in with a corset. Yes, please!

How about an ice cream pen to write down your list of summer fun?
Those bento lunch boxes have my name all over them.

They have beautiful dresses and skirts too, but I didn't get a good shot. Next time you're in the mood to vamp it up, you know where to go. Melissa says they also do pinup make up classes!

Must have an ice cream cone pen. I was hoping they were lip glosses though.
