Thrifts & Thrills: A FashionTK first
Who doesn’t love a little indulgence? Whether it’s an investment piece at a high-priced boutique or a cheap chic find at your favourite vintage hideaway, being united with a long-sought fashion hub is an event to write home about (or at least blog about)!
So with this, FashionTK kicks off its first-ever Thrifts & Thrills post: showcasing highs and lows of urban dandyism.
Unlike many second-hand shops, 69 Vintage is uncluttered and uncomplicated, just like its wares.
Hand-gathered by owner Kealan Sullivan from her “friends closets” and “sources of style” across Toronto, 69 Vintage boasts genuine finds: you may come across a pair of 50′s Lanvin pumps, a Givenchy LBD or just a sweetly-tailored babydoll dress.
For men, snakeskin cowboy boots, skinny ties, and smart-looking oxfords abound. And for the nerdy hipster: 70′s era T-shirts and a tempting selection of horn-rimmed, statement sunglasses and frames. Whatever you fancy, 69 Vintage seems to have it covered.

Before you walk into this chic shop, you may want to carry an Italian phrase book—or a map at the very least. After combing the globe (and almost every atelier in Italy quite literally), Lisa Corbo—owner of the two-floor chic Yorkville boutique—offers luxury labels for the most discerning fashion closet. It’s hard to thumb your nose at names like Derek Lam and Yohji Yamamoto. And pushing the fashion envelope a bit further, georgeC presents spectacular but relatively unknown labels: Gabriele Colangelo (who was dubbed “one to watch” by Style.com) and sexy little numbers from Ermanno Scervino. A new buying venture—and love for Down Under—has lead Corbo back to her roots in Australia and to her latest muse: Aussie designer Kirrily Johnston.
