CQ Live in Manchester pt 2: Retro Rehab
It was a first time in Retro Rehab for Orla and I and we had a great time. Masses and masses of perfect vintage and second-hand frocks lined the wall on the right, while the middle racks were filled with gorgeous remade dresses. They also have a fine selection of vintage jewellery and the prices are pretty good. Earrings were 2 for a fiver while vintage clothing ranged from under a tenner to £30 for premium pieces which is pretty bargainous for a one-off.
My favourite part is the whole shopping experience in Retro Rehab, there was a delicate floral fragrance, beautiful swan-print wallpaper and gorgeous fitting rooms that set a very feminine mood. Also owner Shelley is a lovely woman who consistently picked out gorgeous, well-fitting dresses for us to try on. I fell in love with the white dress I tried on, which was only £30!
Retro Rehab can be found at 91 Oldham Street. Be sure to check out their MySpace where you can take a peek at the gorgeous wallpaper!
