You’ve always admired the dresses your mother wore for parties and weddings from the 1980’s and 1990’s. Since you both perhaps don’t share the same body-type, or worse, her old clothes have become discoloured from being stored for a few decades, you’re certainly not going to put on a garment that’s used or worn out. Fear not, we’ve got you covered in some of our top vintage shops in Toronto.

1) I Miss You Vintage

imissyouvintage.lovethiscitytvNot one to “miss” is this new (very fancy) vintage store along Ossington’s vintage shop strip. With sequence, gems and unique accessories and rare clothing finds, this is a store that can be categorized in one of the more “upscale” of vintage shops, especially since you may find the odd designer label such as Dior and Chanel as you browse through each rack.

2) Monarch Vintage
