Forget Fast Fashion – Here’s Seven Unreal Vintage Bits We’ve Spotted In Dublin This Week

Éadaoin Fitzmaurice

Times are changing and people are becoming more aware of their spending habits and carbon footprint.

There has been a wave across the Irish social media scene of the promotion of sustainable fashion and the benefits involved. It’s one of the most positive changes I’ve seen online as of late.

Shopping vintage has many benefits, it defies the bad habits of fast fashion, the pieces are entirely unique and there’s a mystery story behind them.

Here’s some sheeexy pieces I’ve spotted on Insta this week.

1. Pink Denim Jacket – Tola Vintage

Tola is one of the best vintage shops in the city. They have every kind of style you could imagine and so many slick jackets.

They’re the soundest people ever too.

2. Chanel Bag – Siopaella

If you’re into designer bags you should definitely check out Siopaella.

You might find the bag you’ve always been dreaming of for a fraction of its original price.

3. Floral Shorts – Finders Keepers

Finders Keepers is our newest vintage obsession.

This cute shop in Bray is well worth the trip out to.

4. Abstract Shirts – Dublin Vintage Factory

Dublin Vintage Factory is expanding and has just opened a deadly shop in Temple Bar, where Lucy’s Lounge used to be.

This is probably the best value vintage store in the city.

5. Striped Pinafore – Nine Crows

This outfit is giving me serious spring vibes.

Need it all.

6. Tommy Jeans – The Vintage Shop

The Vintage Shop in George’s Street Arcade is often forgotten about but it has some really great pieces.

7. Cord Shirts – Loving Youth in Topshop

The Loving Youth section in Topshop is filled with vintage treasures.

It’s nice to see a fast fashion brand doing their part, or at least making a small effort to promote vintage fashion.
