Birger's blue bahhhhhh

Want to be snuggly warm this winter without having to look conservative? Well have we got a fun and fab fur for you! Laugh in winter’s face while kicking up your heels in this 1997 Birger Christensen sky  blue mongolian lamb fur coat. Linda Evangelista looks like she had a lot of fun modeling it back then, and we think you will as well this season. Size medium. Please contact us for more details.

Lusting for some more lace in your life? One can never have too much, especially if it is Chantilly. It is the ultimate feminine fabric.

All of our display dresses this week do have sleeves but we’ve pinned them back. The option is yours, if you like them better sleeveless just have them removed-easy peasy.

The centre midriff gown is by none other than Oscar (RIP), hailing from the 1990’s and is a new arrival for us here at The Meow. Ms. Right is also wearing a 1990’s piece from Bill Blass, and the left features a 1970’s french (sans label) couture mini.

Could one of these beauties be your next holiday party dress?

Lately,  many future brides have been visiting us looking for a special wedding dress that isn’t cookie cutter. So this window is devoted to all of you future Mrs’s out there. Winter, summer or  anywhere in between we have many cocktail dresses, gowns, wraps, stoles, sparkly boleros and jackets for you to see. Already have your wedding dress? Why not stop in to peruse our vintage costume jewellery selection to give your special day a ‘something old?’ We are your one stop alternative bridal shop.

On display

For the past two weeks the window has been featuring mostly contemporary designers. This week we are taking it back to our old school vintage ways.

We often field the question; How old does an item have to be, to be considered vintage?  The general consensus for clothing is anything 20+ years.  To which our ego then kicks in and refuses to listen to this because if you’re like us you don’t want to think of yourself as, dare we say it, “vintage”. *Gasp* So for safety’s sake let us set the turning point to 1980, shall we? We can all sleep soundly now.

Oh, and we will let you know when we have located the fountain of youth.

On display

We have some new friends that we would like to introduce you to. You, this is Oscar on the left, Marchesa in the middle and YSL & their partner Blumarine on the right. They are fabulously fun to go out with, you should take them for a spin one night and introduce them to your friends.
