Cabaret Vintage

672 Queen St West, Toronto, ON

One of my favourite streets to shop along in Toronto is Queen Street West (between University and Gladstone). Along this stretch of Queen, you will find your old faithfuls such as Zara, Club Monaco, Gap but you'll also happen upon a whole slew of indie clothing boutiques. One such boutique is Cabaret Vintage. Its walls lined with restored vintage dresses, suits, shirts, and even lingerie, Cabaret Vintage is a vintage fashionista's playground. The ages of Cabaret Vintage's clothing range from the 1900's to the 1960's. Here are a couple of dresses from their website - the one of the left is a 1950's school girl plaid dress (which retails for CDN $225) while the one on the right is a 1960's rhinestone cocktail dress (CDN $345). I love the tie around the neck on the cocktail dress.

For those vintage glam brides out there, Cabaret will not disappoint. Check out these beauties:

Price Upon Request

$125 (what a steal!)

Recently, Cabaret's owner, Tao Drayton, posted a short video on YouTube (see below) on how Cabaret can help vintage brides find their perfect gown. If you're looking for a vintage cocktail type wedding dress, then you need not look further. Cabaret will customize one for you! Call or email for more details. (N.B. ~For more vintage glam goodness, I highly recommend you visit VintageGlamWeddings. This site will inspire you to infuse vintage glam in every aspect of your life. I'm not kidding - I blame my fascinator addiction on VintageGlam.)

And finally, the pièce de résistance, the hats! I could spend all day trying on Cabaret's selection of millinery.
