One of the sweet things about living in Geneva is that we are in the center of Europe: we may be a small town, but London, Madrid, Milano and Paris are so close we can taste it. For the fashion fiends among you, this means we have our fair share of boutique shopping, courtesy of our more cosmopolitan neighbors. GoldyMama, a Parisian boutique selling vintage clothing from the 1950s to the 1980s, is a particularly rare treat, and Geneva has its very own outpost in the heart of Eaux-Vives.
The dresses in this place make me want to tie a bandana around my hair, smear on some bright red lipstick and take the parent’s Chevy out for a joy ride. The shop specializes in vintage A-line dresses of the 50s and 60s (praise that hourglass shape girls), in every print imaginable. Fans of the funk can also find gems from the 70s and 80s to deck you out for the disco dance floor.
So forget Gucci, and get into the groove at GoldyMama – then head over to Wunderchic if you’re still thirsty for more (check the Wunderchic article).
