Stardust Deluxe is a unique shopping experience that marries expertly curated retail garments and accessories with authentic film and television designer pieces. With her roots in the LA film industry, the founder has over 30 years of costuming and styling experience and a passion for making every woman feel comfortable in her own skin.
Q: For those who don’t know, can you tell us more about what Stardust Deluxe is?
A: Stardust Deluxe is a women’s clothing and accessories boutique that caters to a more mature customer that wants something a little different and is not interested in fast fashion.
Q: How long has Stardust Deluxe been around and what is its origin story?
A: The boutique was born during the pandemic as a pivot from my first business, Mid Atlantic Costume. MAC is a costume rental house that rents contemporary clothing and uniforms to film and television projects along the east coast and Mid-Atlantic. We were doing Pop-Up sales and decided to search for a brick-and-mortar to launch Stardust Deluxe. We opened our door to the public on September 12th of this year.
Q: What is your favorite part of the Stardust Deluxe community and your patrons?
A: As a costumer in film and television for almost 30 years, I have vast experience dressing all types of bodies and characters. I love working with people to find things that make them feel comfortable and that tells a story about who they are.
Q: What is unique about your boutique?
A: Stardust Deluxe is unique because I have blended one-of-a-kind designer pieces from my various film projects with things bought at market. We carry a selection of brands like Prada, Gucci, Isabel Marant, and Ferragamo – all at discounted prices. Some are new with tags, while others may be gently worn once or twice on camera. I love vintage, so I sprinkle in a bit of that as well.
Q: What is it like having your boutique at the Annapolis Town Center? What are some of your favorite aspects of the new location?
A: The Annapolis Town Center is a great location for us. I love getting to know the residents and their dogs! It feels awesome to be part of a community that really wants us to succeed.
Q: Do you ever get to collaborate with other tenants?
A: Stardust Deluxe did a collaboration with Ruah Yoga when they had their Grand Opening. We offered a vast array of yoga and loungewear beside the vendors they had. It was a super fun experience and a great way to get to know your neighbors. Jane from Scout & Molly and I have been working on some collaborations as well. We will be announcing more details soon!
Q: Has Stardust Deluxe been involved with any Annapolis Town Center events? What has been your favorite?
A: We set up a booth at the recent Night out on the Town event. It was a great way to collaborate with so many others and enjoy the concert too!
Q: What can shoppers look forward to in the upcoming months?
A: We are about to put out a collection of new fall and pre-holiday styles. In addition, I will be bringing in high-end coats and jackets from MAC just in time for the cooler weather. Our store manager Dina and I just returned from a shopping trip and all of the items are starting to arrive. Sweaters, holiday blouses, and jackets will all be hitting the store in the next week!
