If your look is less cookie cutter and more one-of-a-kind and retro, look no further than the Sofia Vintage Boutique, a new Gold Coast destination for women's and men's vintage clothing and accessories. Sisters Ashley Zisook and Allison Zisook Goldstein who were influenced by the impeccable fashion sense and style of their mother and late grandmother, teamed up to create Sofia, named after style icon and actress Sophia Loren.
Find pieces within the more affordable $10-150 range, as well as designer coutre gowns and tuxedos ($200-1500) by Bob Mackie, Ungara, Gucci and Valentino. If you're a bit tentative about what to purchase, take advantage of personal styling expertise offered in the store. Women can find Victorian lace blouses, '60s and '70s Yves Saint Laurent, Oscar De La Renta, hippie jersey dresses, one-piece jumpsuits, '80s cocktail dresses, belts, jewelry, purses and hats. Men will discover classic sport coats and dinner jackets, western shirts, butter t-shirts, retro ties and cufflinks.
