Yesterday we gave you a small sample of what Hoot and Louise has going on. Today we'll show a little more of the tasty togs you can pick up next time you're in the neighborhood. Hoot and Louise owner Anna Avant and Le Saispas Vintage owner Kristen Irène Young teamed up to showcase some of their favorite outfits from the racks. Check out the slideshow for a closer look.
One of our favorite items is this pair of Super Jeepers sneakers from Sears circa 1960. Kristin hypothesizes these were a response to the popularity of Keds' classic sneakers. But with a name like Super Jeepers, Sears is clearly the winner here. Would you rather wear shoes called "Keds" or shoes called "Super Jeepers"? That's what we thought.
We also appreciate this label from the vintage rack:
We gave this brand 1,000 points for subtlety, but Kristin assured us that Climax had its ahem, climax, once — perhaps even in a photo shoot with Fleetwood Mac? We will confirm with Stevie and report back.
And last but not least, we'd like to thank little Finch, the resident stylist at Hoot and Louise. He graciously showed us how to wield his killer "Blue Steel" pose before retiring for an afternoon nap.
- Anna's son Finch shows us some tricks of the modeling trade.
Special thanks to Kristin and Anna, models Rowan and Jared, and the lovely staff and patrons at the Arcade.
