Out-of-towners know something about Sacramento’s vintage and secondhand retail scene. “Some of the best stores,” according to one rabid Bay Area reuse consumer. La Fem Sophistique has raised the bar on Sacramento seconds.
Mavens of women’s ’50s and ‘60s haute couture drool over fashion designers – Bob Mackie, Valentino, Lucie Ann and others – who designed for the stars including Eva Gabor, Cher, and Marilyn Monroe. Diehard vintage devotees and curious looky-loos spend hours perusing displays of classic business, garden party, or glamorous holiday apparel. Women should know that a ‘50s or ‘60s size 1 4 is today’s size 8. Owners Sandy and Suzen educate shoppers about preservation and reuse. And now you can shop them online!
