As I began to pull together this beautiful celebration of rare vintage dresses the winter sun shone.
Little connections that bring you back to that sense of limitless imagination.
Why buy vintage childrenswear?
Just touching and seeing how clothes used to be tailored and finished gives me so much joy, and hunting for a gemstone amongst the rough is so much more thrilling than trawling through a store filled with rails of the same garment produced en masse. What do I look for when I'm shopping for vintage clothes? I'm looking for a quality and style that isn't available now at an affordable price. Some of the garments to me are akin now only to standard available when shopping designer brands. Beautiful fabrics, prints and even colours that now just aren't as refined as they used to be. Dresses that flow and don't skimp on fabric, hems that allow you to lengthen them as your child grows, fabric finished buttons on coats with velvet and wool trim.
'Dream dresses! What an absolute joy to be able to chat and buy vintage clothes on a Saturday morning. The sizes are perfect and we love them on. Thank you so much.'
'She wore the dress as the lead in Babes in the Wood, I was so proud! I wore the same style Laura Ashley dress as a bridesmaid when I was a child and I still think about it!'
We love shopping at Wolf & Mabel. All of the vintage children’s clothes are exquisite, and they are always of amazing quality and in beautiful condition.
"I’m ludicrously discerning about how I dress my daughter & I confess I bought most of her entire childhood wardrobe before she was born. I’ve been a customer now for years and I am ALWAYS utterly delighted when a parcel arrives. I believe that loved clothes last, Wolf & Mabel is a glorious testament to that. Exquisite, spirited clothes for having adventures in."
'Wolf & Mabel is always my vision brought to life. Pure vintage magic, elite service with the personal touch; perfection.'
