Lucitebox

Lucitebox is a one-woman operated vintage and vintage-inspired clothing store offering styles for women who love the style of the 1940s and beyond.

Lucitebox

The goal of Lucitebox is to offer items that can be mixed with modern style to create a truly one-of-a-kind look. Mix your modern basics with one of their many unique items such as a curve-hugging dress from the 1940s, 1950s platform shoes, classic espadrille sandals paired with a vintage Hawaiian sarong, and even classic twists on standard business casual looks if you still need to maintain a look of professionalism.

Perhaps one of the greatest aspects of Lucitebox is that Holly truly understands the importance of maintaining your own style while incorporating vintage into it. Many vintage lovers find it difficult to incorporate unique vintage pieces into everyday outfits whether it’s for work, school or play, so Holly carefully selects items that are fresh, fashion forward, and trend-worthy, finding items that can be worn with plenty of ease and flair. Holly is even a “style consultant,” so if you’re going to purchase a piece and you want to know a few different ways to style it, give her a ring!

The dress selection in Lucitebox is widely popular for women who are looking for a straightforward 1940s dress or women who want a more fierce rockabilly style. In the dress and women’s wear section you’ll find all sorts of polka dots, fabrics, bright contrasting colors, plunging halter necklines, button-down tops and knee-length skirts, unique patterns, and plenty of separates such as suit jackets, sweaters, skirts, button-down blouses, shoes, scarves, purses, clutches, and even seasonal coats and sexy lingerie. Holly even has a small selection of housewares for your retro home.
