I just found out about this vintage style lingerie store in Long Beach, CA earlier today while at an antique store. I found a darling bag/case with which to store nylons. And it was a great price. The store clerk told me that she thought that the owner from Lucy B might want it, but I grabbed it first! Now I've taken a look at the Lucy B website and it looks pretty interesting. Anyone ever shopped there?

I know Bernie Dexter wears and promotes Lucy B! 

Their stuff is darling and ultra collectable (: However, I do not personally own any so I'm not sure about wearability...but always looks great in photos!

 

I happened to be in Long Beach for work today and decided to drop by. The lady in the store, maybe the owner, was gracious enough. The lingerie seemed OK. Their retro style things appear to be all Bernie Dexter items. The woman told me that she makes the bras for Bernie Dexter. But I must admit that I was not really won over. And I will also say that something happened there for the very first time. Most of you know that I am transgender. Inasmuch as it was a work day, I was dressed in guy mode. I always am upfront about who I am and when I go into a new store I usually bring some of my pin up photos to show that I am not just some weirdo. But the woman said: "We don't let men try on our lingerie." I still chatted with her a bit and I even bought some small bra pads. But now I regret that. No shop has ever refused to let me try on clothes before. That is right... no shop! I don't go into department stores expecting to try on woman's clothes in the women's dressing room while in guy mode. I am very civil and well mannered. I do not want to push limits. But every vintage boutique I have ever been into has been so accommodating. I am sorry, I just had to get this off of my chest.

I had better just give my great thanks to my two favorite vintage boutiques: PinUpGirl and What Katie Did. I will be forever in your debt for your kindness!
