Fall Staff Picks finishes on a high note with a visit to one of Old City’s most established boutiques. Our editor Molly, who will surely be editing this post, shows us how to dress like a girl and still be badass. Together Dominique and Molly travel into the world of edgy femininity.
Smak Parlour Boutique has been open since 2005 with a strong online presence since 2011. Owners Abby and Katie have a real aesthetic sense – think Betsey Johnson but local, and in some cases hand-stitched right in the shop. It’s like walking into an adult version of a little girl’s dressing room. The color palette is black, white, pink and metallic. If you ever need a good party dress – or something for New Year’s – this would definitely be the place to find it.
Smak Parlour also has a sparkling array of playful jewelry from Philadelphia and beyond. Take this Audrey Hepburn cameo necklace for example:
Luckily for us, Molly is as good behind the scenes as she is on camera! Thanks again to the girls at Smak Parlour and photographer Olivia Vaughn. Enjoy!
