Found: Your New Favorite (Mobile) Vintage Boutique

2-v
The search is over ladies! We’ve tracked down one of the city’s most unique shops: Lost Girls Vintage, a Chicago-based mobile boutique that has us giddy like a kid on summer break. Gal-pals Kyla Embrey and Sarah Azzouzi joined creative forces just a few months ago after the two kept running into each other while individually selling at local flea markets. The girls became fast friends and decided it was time to collaborate their complementing styles and mutual love of vintage treasures and create a company to call their own.
Both vintage fanatics have a niche for adventure, so coming to the agreement that a typical storefront just wouldn’t do was the easy part — the real battle was finding an alternative hub. So, after several successful pop-up shops at the launch of their business, Embrey and Azzouzi found their true calling — Winnie. No, not the adorable honey-seeking pooh-bear, but the 1976 RV that the girls personally refurbished into a bright orange and chevron abode for their vintage boutique.
If you were to ask the two what single word defines their collection, both sequin-wearing, animal-print-sporting girls would scream, “FUN!” LGV brings Chicago vintage-lovers a funky-yet-high-quality, wide variety and reasonably priced collection of gems to the streets. Each item is carefully selected and you can expect bright colors, fun patterns, and sizes from 0 to 20.
Be sure to track down these traveling divas all summer long via Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and on their website. Upcoming stops include: Chicago Flea MKT on 7/7; Vintage Garage on 7/21; and Heritage Coffee and Bicycle on 7/27. For private shopping/styling appointments, email lostgirlsvtg@gmail.com.
