Shopping >Smak Parlour
My Heart!!. I am in love with Smak Parlour. Hands down, best boutique (and I rarely have strong opinions like this). I always get so many compliments when I wear their threads! I look forward to getting dressed to show off their unique, creative designs. I tried to keep it a secret for so long, but everyone makes such a fuss when I wear their stuff, I thought its only fair to spread the word and let people in on my favorite place to be. Everyone deserves to know about this true gem of a shop and thats why I'm posting this. It might change your life, I'm hooked.
This funky, grrl-powered dressing-room-ish boutique offers fun and edgy few-of-a-kind designs..
Browsing this pink and turquoise-splashed Old City shop is as fun as raiding your big sister's closet. Co-owners Katie Loftus and Abby Kessler design and make all of their clothing on the premises--for proof, just check out the bolts of bright fabric lining the back wall. All pieces -ruche-edged tunics with heart patches, form-fitting jackets with bright linings, lightweight skirts with silkscreened embellishments--are made in limited batches. Accessorizing the fashions are girly shoes, accessories and funky jewelry.
i'm in love. definite cool style. my fave shop... ever. best finds to be found. refreshingly unique, cool, hip, super stylish, awesome clothes that make me look hot every time!!! no need to shop elsewhere.
Best shopping experience ever!!. I am blown away by this shop-- came in looking for a dress and left with the HOTTEST little number! It was absolutely adorable and fierce all at once! these girls are good! The dress needed to be taken in and they actually did the alterations on the premises right then and there... I left minutes later with a perfect fitting dress and they didn't even charge me to have the darts taken in. I don't know anywhere else where shopping is this painless!!
so fun!. I had so much fun at Smak Parlour! I bought the best tee shirt ever...it fits me great and has cool anchors on it!!! I can't believe those two girls design all the clothes. It's crazy. I love everything and can't wait to buy more.
Smak Parlour Rocks!. I live in NYC and come to Philly JUST to shop at Smak Parlour! I get compliments EVERY time I wear their clothes. I could never find really cool clothes anywhere until I found this amazing store. My friends are sooo jealous, always begging me to take them next time I make a Philly trip to Smak. Plus, love those Smak girls who design it all... worth the trip just to see them.
one of a kind shop!. this is truly the coolest shop I've ever seen. they make all of the clothing themselves and the style is amazing. I'm a really picky shopper and everytime I've been in, I think I've died and gone to heaven. It's so cool to get hip & unique clothing outside the cookie- cutter chain stores. I'll never go back to wearing what everyone else has on.
simply in awe. when I go out of town to shop (I'm not from PA), the rule is to only buy what you cannot at home. After shopping stores in Seattle, San Francisco, and Chicago, to find something unique, stumbling onto Smak Palour was a breath of fresh air. It is truly has that unique quality I've been searching for. I was enamored the moment I stepped into the store. The clothes are well-made, and succeed in producing items with just the right amount of edge and playfulness. For a fairly great price, you can get wonderful pieces that very few, if anyone else, will have! The only (small) downside is, since they make most of their own clothes, sizes occassionally can be limited. The bottom line: I CANNOT WAIT TO RETURN TO PHILLY; JUST TO SHOP AT THIS STORE!
This store rocks. If you don't check out Smak Parlour, you're really missing out. I've never seen a shop this cool in my entire life, it's like a fashion experience.
Adorable hip & cool. There's no place on earth like Smak Parlour. All of the super cute clothing is designed in the back of the shop and you can actually watch the show going on behind the velvet curtains. Two of the cutest, sweetest girls you will ever meet are the designers behind all of the clothing and they make new things everyday! It's like a glittery dollhouse, like Barbie's dreamhouse; I love this boutique!
