Pan Am stewardess costume: retro chic, yet of the moment

Please. You can do better than Sexy Nurse. Or Sexy Witch. Or Sexy Police Officer. Sure, some guys go wild for the paradox, and perhaps the pleather, but those packaged costumes are so obvious. Megan McGuire, owner of Up Six Vintage at Selby and Snelling in St. Paul, spends all year dreaming up clever costumes, and stockpiling the bell bottoms, rompers, Zubaz, go go dresses, tube tops and Hawaiian prints to bring them to life. She can get you dressed as Jackie O, Willy Wonka, Lady GaGa or the cast of Saved By the Bell. Got a better idea? Challenge McGuire–she’s ready for it, with extended hours all week: Noon to 7 p.m. Tuesday; Noon to 8 p.m. Wed.-Saturday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, Halloween. 157 Snelling Ave., St. Paul, 651-917-0470 | Mpls.St.Paul Magazine © 2008 MSP Communications, Inc.
