At first glance, Boris and Natasha looks like a secondhand store. Though the scantily clad mannequins in the shop windows appear to be modeling retro fashions, the boutique is anything but a thrift shop—the clothes are designer (with prices to match).
It’s one of the few places in Charlotte  that can be counted on for couture from Anna Sui and Ben Sherman. The atmosphere in the store fits with the neighborhood: hip with a vintage vibe. Be sure to offer up a belly rub to the store mascot, Odie McMuffin.
