What's In Store? : Lo-Fi Vintage Boutique (Houston, TX)
Houston continues to grow in various areas, from when it comes to the size of people to the development of scenery, it's signs of progression. One of the primary places where growth is shown is in the rising fashion scene in Houston and the mecca for it is Montrose. The Montrose/Lower Westheimer setting is filled with Houstonians who have interests in the arts, music, graffiti, and don't stick to their stereotypical image of what the average Texan appears to be. This is the safe haven for H-Town residents who search for hidden gems on a strip of stores who are in the primitive stages rather than the exuberant 5 star ora that boutiques near the Galleria carries.
Appeared to be the opposition, but Montrose is the cultural and creative outlet for many Houstonians. The street speaks to those who embody the DIY spirit and Space City's newest vintage shop, Lo-Fi is a store who voices this with their nostalgic approach. The retro-centered boutique shows off some of the rarest threads in mint condition and makes it apparent your moving back in time with posters and flags of players such as Deion "Primtime" Sanders, Shawn Kemp, and Shaq to name a few.
Compared to other vintage sportswear shops in the area, this has to be the one that fully executed what a store a decade ago would look like. Although it may not have the same amenities and details like Trey's Vintage, it still gives off a great feel for the customer to get the idea of relevancy of the throwback pieces.
So if you're ever in the Houston, Modern Life Mag recommends you shop with Lo-Fi!
