I’ve been excited to write about Smiley Vintage, a unique vintage clothing store I stumbled upon while wandering through Södermalm. The store prides itself on sourcing vintage materials from all over the world and recreating them into unique fashion pieces. It’s a truly special store if you’re looking to get beautiful, one-of-a-kind clothing.
Smiley Vintage’s location in hipster Södermalm is fitting considering the cool nature of the store. The nearest subway station is Medborgarplatsen, and it’s about a 7-minute walk from there. Nearby, you’ll find nice cafes, parks, restaurants, and other interesting shops.
I’ve walked by Smiley Vintage a few times, always admiring it from the outside. I finally gave in to temptation and went in to browse the selection. It’s a fairly small store but they have a great assortment of dresses, shirts, skirts, pants, and some timeless leather jackets that I especially liked. The clothes range from casual to more formal, and even include some vintage wedding dresses. If you’re in need of accessories, they also have some beautiful vintage jewellery to compliment your outfit.
As the weather’s finally starting to warm up here in Stockholm, I’ve been on the market for a nice summer shirt. After browsing through the assortment at Smiley Vintage, I found a classic polka dott blouse that I couldn’t bare to part with. The cost was 450 SEK (around $50 USD) and the other items in the store are similarly priced. For a truly unique item, I’d say it’s well worth it!
As each clothing item is unique, there’s only one size for each piece. So you really should try on the clothes first to ensure they’ll fit. Sophia, the sales associate, was great at helping me find the right size and she also recommended some other trendy pieces that suit my style.
Whether or not you’re a fan of vintage clothing, Smiley Vintage is a unique store that’s worth checking out while shopping in Stockholm. Maybe you’re just looking for some cute accessories, or a one-of-a-kind dress to wear this summer. Whatever it may be, there seems to be something for everyone at Smiley Vintage.
