Fly Boutique looks like just another clothing shop on Lincoln Road; it’s only inside that you realize it actually sells vintage clothing. You don’t hunt for fabulous old clothes here — you just grab ‘em off the racks. The owners pick through the stashes at thrift stores and estate sales and whisk the best stuff here. You’ll pay, too: dresses can cost over $100, pants run $40 to $90. And yes, they do have men’s clothes.
Most of the charm is in the way the store is decorated. It’s kind of like a crazy aunt’s living room, if your crazy aunt had no closets and an obsession with clothes from the 60/70/80s. There’s a funky couch, a coffee table piled high with fashion magazines, rugs on the terrazzo floor, and funky objects everywhere.
A cache of belts. Good grief, who wouldn’t want to be a rock star?
