Ever wonder where your favorite vintage dress came from, or who owned that 1970s pantsuit you just bought? In our new video feature, we're sending psychic Roxanne Elizabeth Usleman to some of the city's best vintage stores for her take on the past lives of clothes.

For our inaugural post, Roxanne went to Marmalade Vintage on Mott Street, where she combed the racks alongside store owner Hannah Kurland to uncover the history of the shop's printed shift dresses, jewelry, and more. Watch the video above to see what she found.
