I love, love, love Cabaret. Talk about making vintage cool. Walk in and you’ll feel like you’ve stepped onto the set of Mad Men where you can indulge your inner Audrey Hepburn. The most beautiful dresses and coats for the ladies, bow ties and blazers for the men. And the fact that the owner makes you feel so at home and encourages you to try on their vintage couture. I was determined to walk out with just my beautiful crystal earrings when I spotted a sparkly black vintage 60s number from Cannes. I’m a sucker for vintage dresses but unfortunately they all seem to come with a 24 inch waist. When I asked Tao the owner what size it was, he brought it down and with a glint in his eyes said ‘just your size’. And he was right. Damn that man is good.
If you can’t find anything vintage in your size, Cabaret has their own line of dresses in a vintage style that will make you feel like Grace Kelly. Be warned if you come here you’ll want to try on everything! Don’t forget to venture downstairs where you’ll find lost treasures like old Pan Am and Adidas bags and my favourite..a tan leather jumpsuit.
