I’ve recently begun a new job at a fabulous vintage shop downtown. Swish Vintage is chock full of beautiful vintage dresses from the 1910 onwards. You will find the most styles within the 40s to 70s and in a wide range of sizes! Along side dresses and other items of clothing, you will find tons of gorgeous handbags, beautiful jewelry, shoes, hair scarves, furniture, and knick-knacks. Oh, and hats! I have never seen so many amazing vintage hats…Swish is the mecca of vintage hats!
Swish is located in the heart of downtown, along 101 avenue and 102 street. It is a beautiful shop,owned by a lovely lady who does all the hunting and procuring herself. Swish has been in its current location for an amazing 6 years and before that in the highlands.
Every time I walk into Swish, I search the racks for new treasures. And I find something new and beautiful every time! The vintage dresses in the shop make my heart skip a beat… oh gawd, they are so beautiful! Most of the ones I love the most are too small for me…especially my hips! If any of you Edmonton gal reading this are small, hurry up and get down to Swish to find some amazing dresses at fantastic price. That being said, there are a ton of great frocks in bigger sizes…meaning larger than a 26″ waist.
You can also find some great vintage coats, fur and otherwise, at Swish. I tried almost all of them on one day…I couldn’t help myself, they were all so pretty! And warm! Which, if you live where we do, you need a warm winter coat.
I always find something to covet when I scour the racks at Swish and you can bet you will be seeing it all on my blog and social media!
Now, lets get to the hats! Oh my goodness! The hats at Swish are divine! I also tried a bunch on one day… I want them all! Most are in fabulous condition too! There are felt hats, ostrich feather hats, hats with veils and bird feathers, sunhats, turbans, day hats, evening hats…and on it goes
I am just so happy to be working at such a beautiful, fun shop that is new and exciting every week. If you are on the hunt for quality vintage you need to come down to Swish! Weather you are in need of an outfit for an event, wear vintage on a daily basis, are looking for a gift, or just love the hunt, Swish is your destination! And if you come on a Tuesday, I’ll be there!!
