Lynette (Ms. Fe Fe) McNeill-Voss was born in Washington, D.C. and raised in historical Anacostia. She became interested in vintage clothing at a very young age. Her passions were drawing, dressing her Barbies and making jewelry. Despite her passion for art and fashion, she studied Accounting/Business Administration and received a degree from the University of the District of Columbia 1991 now able to fully express her true love for vintage, Lynette wore only vintage suits to her full-time Accountant position. She received so many compliments that she decided to start a wardrobing business and called it “Lynnie’s Fashions!”
While working full-time and operating her own business, Lynette took a part-time Sales Associate position at Nordstrom in Pentagon City in Virginia. She quickly worked her way up to Assistant Manager in the “Point-of-View Department” after becoming a top seller in the “Women’s Active”, “Handbags” & “Fashion Jewelry Departments.” She remained at Nordstrom for several years until she married and had her first child. As a stay at home Mom, Lynette started a jewelry line called “The Voss Collection” that she sold at Trunk Shows in the local Nordstrom stores, neighboring boutiques and home parties.
After several years of life happening, Lynette worked for and managed several clothing stores, owned and operated several kiosks in local malls in the DMV, gave several Fashion Shows displaying all of her fabulous finds and finally she decided to open a boutique of her very own. That’s when Vintage & Charmed was born! Lynette takes great pleasure searching and finding all of the one-of-a-kind fashions that reside in her boutique. If you’re ever in the Maryland area, you “MUST” stop by “Vintage & Charmed Classic Clothing” for your very own fabulous shopping experience.
