Gigi’s Dressing Room – E17 Curated Vintage

Gigis Dressing Room

Are you looking for the perfect vintage item to wear to that next wedding, graduation or birthday party? Then you have another good reason to visit Walthamstow: my old cobblers has become a curated collection of vintage clothes aka Gigi’s Dressing Room.

I first blogged about Gigi many years ago. It’s been fascinating to watch this local business grow from a rack of dresses to the shop it is today. All down to Gigi’s extremely hard work and charm, I am quite certain. But more than that – down to her immaculate taste.

Don’t take my word for it. Just look at the photos.

You can hire the more glamorous evening dresses, as well as buy quality day wear – such a great concept. I wish I knew where Gigi sources her finds!

I think my sewing map of Walthamstow needs to be updated. If you visit Gigi’s, it’s worth knowing that there’s a pub very close by, where they do awesome burgers and rosemary fries – perfect for a lunchtime weekend visit. And you’re only ten minutes away from God’s Own Junkyard, one of my own favourite places in Walthamstow.

This is the perfect place to visit for vintage inspiration. And it’s only two minutes away from my house. This could prove to be a Very Bad Thing.

    Shoes pictured not recommended for dog walking. Lovely, but make my feet hurt just looking at them.

    Oh my! We have nothing like that here in USA. I’m envious!

    Just what the area needs more invites for wanna be snob cunts. The pubs are no longer pubs just homing beacons for fully grown men in ass tight jean sipping rose wine. Take me back to the days of the college arms and the cocaine stained pool table.

  6. What a gorgeous shop. I love a good vintage one and they are getting harder to find. Thank you for sharing this place. It looks like a treasure. I was going to go to Goldhawk Road on Weds as I am in London but might be tempted to visit here instead. Walthamstow market is bad enough for my bank balance as it is. 🙂 Xx

  7. How lovely! The red shoes look amazing together! I will be in the UK md Oct-mid Nov and I’ll be checking out this Walthamstow about which I have heard so much 🙂
