“Judy” visits Cabaret Vintage

Cabaret Vintage has been in the heart of West Queen West, Toronto for almost 20 years and has been named Best Vintage Clothing Store in Toronto by Now Magazine.  aboutimage1

This year however, the shop is moving its business to online sales only.  You’ll be happy to know that their vintage inspired options go up to a 2x sizing there – FYI!

While the storefront will remain operational until February, the ladies of the Toronto Vintage Society booked an hour of exclusive shopping-time with Tao (the delightful shop owner) to scoop up as many “one-of-a-kind” vintage finds as we could. πŸ™‚

The Ladies of The Toronto Vintage Society …wishing you a Happy New Year!

What I Wore:

I’ve been stalking this Tatyana Boutique dress (a common hobby of mine) and finally got it when it was super marked-down….

The Outfit Deets: Faux fur purse, Aldo (click here); Bowtie belt, vintage; Maryjane heels, Nine West; The Judy Dress, Tatyana Boutique

This dress is very generously sized, the one below is a 2x (I usually fit into 3x/4x with Tatyana sizing).

Model vs. Moi

The neckline and shoulders of this dress is really what stole my heart. And its the perfect length…no hemming required for my petite frame.

I love it so much ❀

So much so, that I’ve actually wore this to the office the week before Xmas …  and received “compliments” which included very-vintage-y, as well as Elf-y :/

Le sigh…

What I Bought:

“Exclusive shopping event”, they said.

“It’s only an hour”, they said.

“No harm in looking, right?” they said.

Sigh… I cannot be trusted.  My visit was suppose to be strictly for window-shopping purposes.  I thought I could totally control myself, as finding true vintage in my size is like finding a needle in a haystack.  I thought I was safe.  And still, this giant bag of delights followed me home. :/

The following beauties…

Three pairs of elbow-length gloves….. one in perfect condition brown leather!! ❀

This brown hat sits on the head at a sharp angle, held on to the head with a hat-pin … I couldn’t put it down, and maybe kept it on my head whilst I shopped the store…. πŸ™‚

And lastly, this gorgeous mink fur collar!!! ❀ ❀ ❀

And it’s given new life to older pieces in my closet already, like this cheapy wrap-dress from Old Navy that’s been in my closet for ages…
