Recapture, on College Ave., is the place to go to find that perfect vintage dress for your next formal event. While the shop is small, they have an amazing assortment of dresses in back. They really take the time to help you find the perfect dress, from a long slinky 30's silk gown to a full skirt 50's cocktail dress. You can make a private fitting appointment and get star treatment. Plus, they work with a seamstress to ensure a great fit. Perfect for Brides to be!

Looking for something dressy, yet a little less formal? Say, a summer barbeque rather than a summer wedding? You don't have to go far, Bella Vita is right next door!

This store is super charming and has all the girly details from ribbons, to lace, to pearlized 50's cardigan sweaters. They have a smaller selection of dresses than most vintage shops, but what they do carry are dreamy little numbers just right for warmer months. They also have the cutest little bags to go with a new dress of course!
