That feeling of looking through beautifully curated items, finding the ones you love, trying on a handful of rad pieces, really falling in love with it on the hanger and on your body. We miss it! As much as we both love the ease and endless variety of shopping online, we feel its a bit more fun to shop in real life! So...
We've opened up a shop featuring Chicago's best swimwear and vintage. We are so excited to show off the shop, but first- here's a peek into our transformation!
The spot we found is a few doors down from our favorite bar ( Empty Bottle! ) and was a former hair salon. A little dose of fate since our vintage gal Chanel did hair for over a decade :)
We found a perm!
We found old ass weed! Thanks Tetiana!!
The walls were 2 shades of pink, 2 shades of purple with a large splash of teal. It had some really ugly drop ceilings so we got up on ladders and took that shit down!
We enlisted a little help from some really magical friends, who will forever be Fox Club VIPs.
Dad sent some tools. And damn! We sure did use em.
There was pizza.
There was plumming.
There was drilling. The pizza was more fun.
So much sweeping. SOOOOO much painting.
A few jokes...
Our second home. The Depot.
We are The Fox Club.

Come hang with us! We are here to help you find the perfect swim for your hot bod, vintage finds to style with your new suit and are here to help customize to your size and style. Plus, we're fun.
