On Our Radar:
Vintage & Vinyl
Posted by:  Dawn Hoffman

With its well-edited selection of both vintage and contemporary pieces, Fox & Fawn has become one of Brooklyn's most reputable vintage stores. Formerly located on the LES, the store relocated to the 11222 zip code last March when it moved in with Heaven Street Records. While Fox & Fawn's loyal Manhattan clientele may grumble about the erratic G, the shop's eclectic blend of unique and high-end clothing are well-worth the 10 minute subway transfer. Vintage leather boots and purses line the store's walls while racks are filled with nautical tees, chunky sweaters, and whimsical button downs. An expansive dress section offers everything from '50s style housedresses to flirty Alice and Olivia frocks. The denim selection includes cult favorites such as Cheap Monday, J Brand, and Earnest Sewn. A men's section, stocked with work boots and flannel shirts, can be found in the back of the store along with Heaven Street Records's collection of new and used LPs. Despite the familiar names, prices are reasonable with many items costing under $30. The store is conveniently located near brunch hot spots Enid's, Matchless, and Five Leaves making it ideal for pre- or post-Bloody Mary shopping.

Raiments To Rave O'er
Posted by:  Rebecca Katherine Hirsch

Firstly, this is the best vintage store in the LES. My hips (arms and legs) don't lie. Secondly, the information the Internet is feeding me regarding this store is altogether bedevilling. I see typically pseudo-retro Polaroids, an arguably cheesy Myspace page and talk of parties and performances in-store. Why I find this discouraging is perhaps because I hold the Fox in extreme regard and don't like a) word getting out about my favorite store, nor b) pesky social events getting in the way of my shopping. After all, the clothes here are wholly fantastic and incredibly reasonably priced. An excellent blue-and-white seashell peasant skirt or delicate tea rose blouse only costs around $15, a Mad Men-esque little fuschia dress $32 and the highest I have encountered: $50 for a short jean jumpsuit. Have I mentioned the people who run the place are way cool? They're always hanging loose with their pals, but nonetheless willing to offer a helping hand/critique. I'm surprised the LES still has room for cool, normally-priced places like this. I am confused, frightened and ungirded by the possibility of its being exposed to the masses, but fear will not win over my desire to triumph in the realm of clothes.
