SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A local boutique is gaining attention from celebrities for its high-end designer pieces that offer customers vintage Hollywood styles.
La Fem Sophistique, located on Folsom Boulevard and 33rd Street, is everything its name implies.
“We have such a vast amount of pieces,” owner Sandi Linder said.
The boutique has styles to make every woman feel like a million bucks for a fraction of the price.
“I feel elegant. I feel like a woman. I feel amazing. I feel like a red carpet star,” said Emily Ochoa.
Some of the pieces in La Fem Sophistique have been worn on the red carpet. The store carries one dress worn at the inaugural ball for one of the Kennedys.
“We have everything from Judith Leiber to Halston,” said Linder.
Linder has traveled the world and specifically chose Sacramento to open her business.
“We’ve been well-embraced in Sacramento. We’re really pleased with the community here,” she said.
She believes the area is becoming known for its consignment shops and the hope is to build a Northern California bridge to Hollywood.
“Shopping here in Sacramento has huge advantages over the Bay Area, simply because you can get a much better deal,” Linder said.
“This is the only place in Sacramento I’ve found that’s like this,” shopper Kristin Marshall said.
Marshall loves to eye the pieces because, she says, vintage will never go out of fashion.
“It’s such an inspiration to wear something that’s a piece of history. It adds to your look and how you feel,” she said.
The owner just launched a website to consign online and plans to open another boutique in Sacramento.
