This store is cavernous and slightly chaotic. But if you can zero in on what you want, there is a logic to it. “There is still a point of view even though it’s big,” Ms. Starr said. “It reminds me of being a teenager and discovering thrifting.” There are entire racks of dead-stock cropped tanks in many colors, sweater vests, plaid and corduroy schoolgirl skirts and cutoff denim shorts in many washes, all very short. There are rows of cowboy boots and white overalls and a daisy print minidress for $35 that looks like something someone would have worn in an R.E.M. video in the ’90s.
606 Manhattan Avenue
This store is what Carolyn Bessette Kennedy’s closet may have looked like, all shades of black and white and beige and gray. A silver Ralph Lauren shift dress is $120; a cream Armani wrap skirt, $85; a black Christian Lacroix silk and lace assemblage, $129; Levi’s 550s, $108. The most perfect Robert Clergerie loafers are waiting for their own size 6 Cinderella.
