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 second installment of Vintage Store Psychic, we sent Roxanne to AuH2O in the East Village. While there, she found a skirt that belonged to an unlucky-in-love trust fund girl, and discovered the story behind store owner Kate Goldwater's engagement ring.
For avid vintage shoppers, Roxanne also explains how to take any bad energy out of secondhand clothes with troublesome pasts.
