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.
