Everything old is new again.
Shopping vintage is one way to go -- if you want to stay unique, but keep trendy.
In the case of finding a good vintage store, Aleissa's Collection is a must-stop shop.
The 3 month-old vintage boutique on Coral Way specializes in selling haute couture of all eras, from sparkly sequined dresses and tops from the '20s to flouncy frocks from the '50s to super-sleek '80s gear.
“My boutique is good for women that want evening wear or a unique accessory,” said owner Aleissa Fernandez. “Girls as young as 10 years old to women in their '60s can find something worth buying here.”
Inside the small shop, which is painted in a bright gold hue, tables are overflowing with belts, jewelry, hats, purses, sunglasses, and pins.
On the floor, find plenty of stilettos and wedges by Ferragamo.
Twice a week Fernandez said new items are available.
You can also make special requests if she doesn’t have what you are looking for.
Items in the store cost anywhere from $2 for a pair of authentic '80s sunglasses to $800 for an alligator purse from the '50s.
