Dress Up to Get Down

Joshua Sundberg

Owner, Cliché, a women’s boutique

Shopping at: Nu Look, a South Minneapolis consignment store; 4956 Penn Ave. S., Minneapolis; 612-925-0806.

Shopping for: Delayna, his wife and the co-owner of Cliché.

"I didn’t think I’d find so much great stuff!"

What he’s after:
"We’re totally going with Golden Girls fabulous here. They had all this great ’80s draping on that show."

Worth considering: A little black dress by Calvin Klein worthy of Marilyn Monroe; flared Joe’s Jeans paired with a whimsical plaid tuxedo blouse by Etro.

Settled on: An ’80s St. John sweater dress with rhinestone detailing and a cut-out back with two big bows ($149, on clearance), star-shaped rhinestone earrings ($12), and a velour tote embellished with beads and gold organza ($16). Of the dress, Sundberg said: "We have one in the store that’s similar. This is coming back‹even the shoulder pads, which is kind of crazy."
