What Goes Around Comes Around
Mentally prepare yourself for the vintage big leagues before stepping into What Goes Around Comes Around's vast SoHo space. The coveted goods at this celebrity favorite cost a pretty penny; many shoppers cite the pieces' functions as both clothing and wearable art as justification for the price tag. The store is split by gender—women's wear on the left side, men's on the right—with stacks of denim, rock 'n' roll tees and vintage Chanel pieces throughout. The collection includes such finds as intricately detailed dresses and beaded jackets from the Victorian era, art deco dresses from the 1920s and '30s, and collections of clothing, boots, jewelry and leather from more recent decades. The house label, a popular brand of new vintage-inspired clothing, is also a hot seller at this location.
