She believes that vintage, however,
is all aboutoriginality.
"That's stunningly amazing to me,
that people will pay good money for
corporate repro for something where
we have the original," Whitt said.
"I've had the buyers of Anthropolo-
gie come into the store and buy things
which, then, they base their items on.
They're basing it off of merchandise
that we have the originals of."
Coombs takes a more organic view
on the specific items in the store.
"I feel like certain pieces belong
with certain people," Whitt said. "I
bought this sweater that I wear pretty
much every day, and I feel like it was
meant for me to have. Everything here
has a soul and a soulmate. I've seen it
happen. Some girl will try on a dress
that a million different girls have
tried, and it will look different on her.
"And she'lljustlove it and beso happy
to own it. That's my favorite thing."

With an incredibly rich under-
standing of past styles, McLeod would
be the first to admit that she prefers
the aesthetics of bygone eras.
"I'm kind of in this la-la land of
the past," she said. "I don't really pay
too much attention to current trends.
When I check out Vogue from today
I mean, I read Vogues from 1962, I
have this whole collection - you just

younger generations interpret future
styles, fashions and even lifestyles.
"I think people are striving for
another time," McLeod said. "If you
focus on the past, (on) this country
in the past, you're uplifted. There's
kind of a throwback to even morals
and values of the '40s and '50s where
you hold onto what you have and you
value what you have ... there's this
innocence. I really think this younger
generation is cravingsomethingthat's
been missing for so long."
Even with her love and under-
standing of the golden ages of Ameri-
can style, McLeod is keen to realize
that it might seem like ancient history
to others. Always with an ear to the
ground, she doesn't mind tailoring the
store to her customers' tastes.
"The '70s used to be my cutoff, but
now I sprinkle in the '80s because
there's this demand for it today, it's
fashionable and avant-garde. But I'm
not ready for the '90s for another five
