Fashion aficionados will feel right at home combing through the racks for vintage dresses at Hot Couture in Santa Rosa CA. Every piece of authentic vintage clothing in the shop is at least 30 years old, with most pieces originating in the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. Occasionally, savvy shoppers can find older vintage dresses for sale that are truly one of a kind, some dating as far back as the Victorian Era or even the 1800s. Such garments are rare these days due to their age and fragility, but our vintage store loves keeping an eye out for the unique.

Hot Couture has been in the same boutique retail space in historic Railroad Square since 1983. In that time, our owner, Marta, has steadily curated a veritable treasure trove of beautiful vintage dresses and clothing in our Santa Rosa space. From the classic weekend dresses of the 1950s to embellished cocktail numbers from the 1980s, there’s something for every style and taste. The selection on our floor is in constant rotation to match the season and current style trends, many of which borrow from the classics, but if you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, all you have to do is ask. We have a selection of denim which ranges from 80s mom jeans to acid wash pants and high waisted skirts. We also have a beautiful selection of vintage dresses for sale just waiting for their opportunity to find the right home.
One of our favorite things about buying and selling authentic vintage clothing is how nicely it fits into the sustainability movement. Buying vintage breathes new life into old garments and reduces textile waste from many of the cheap-but-poorly-made clothes available today. In our opinion, part of maintaining that movement is to offer quality vintage dresses to Santa Rosa locals and visitors at affordable prices. Everyone should be able to afford this clothing, and most of our dresses fall in the $40-$80 range.
While much of our inventory is available for sale, we also offer costume rentals. For a reasonable rental cost, we’ll help you create a complete, custom period costume including accessories. We’ll help you select garments you’re comfortable in and that fit you, as well as shoes, handbags, hats, jewelry, gloves, or anything else you need to complete the look!
