Vintage Shops We Reccommend: Part 5, Indianapolis (Cont.)



Ah yes - we return to our ongoing series after a hiatus. We got back to Indianapolis and made a second visit to Indy Swank - and found a great Louisville label striped wool jacket from the 50s. And we were so happy to see Indy Swank is still looking good with a lovely selection of vintage clothing, accessories and modern local design. And this time, we did get into Venus and Mars, right across the street. A different feel altogether, but a clean, fun, nicely priced shop with 3 rooms of both menswear and womenswear from the 50s - 80s. We did spy a 1930s velvet dress and a 1920s chiffon dress, but both were study pieces. Our party did consider a hot pink 1950s velvet coat, but realized it just won't work for raking up those winter leaves in Ky. or strolling about Maine in Dec. However, Mr. Past Perfect found a natty tweed hat he wore the rest of the day and claims is his new favorite headgear. Success can be declared.

Thank you very much for letting people know about Venus & Mars Fashion Exchange. It was a pleasure meeting your group. Mr. Past Perfect is very welcome, and I'm glad he likes the hat and that it kept him warm!
