As you may know, I am always looking for new designers and shops with goods that work for me and my body shape. But then all women are, aren't we?
I had just such a happy co-incidence in Toronto, on Queen Street West - Tatyana.
This is a shop that specializes in a '50's look, but made to today's spec. The fabrics are new, but the straight fitted (wiggle) dresses, full skirts and portrait collars are a throw back to when "dames was dames".
Martha was particularly helpful and the staff were having fun, each modelling a different look with just the right accessories to make the look current. One of my favourite is the two piece swim suit (see photo). So I will be going back - I want to try it and there is a "Breakfast at Tiffany's" dress (my description only) that I am in love with. I will keep you posted!
If you see other shops with a '50's vibe, no matter where, let me know.
