Babooshka is one of my favorite stores in Philly…I discovered it one day while shopping in Echo Chic, another fabulous Philadelphia boutique. Echo Chic carries a variety of the season’s hottest pieces, from Botkier to Chloe and everything in between. However, if you’re looking for unique one-of-a-kind pieces at bargain basement prices (ok, not so bargain basement, but compared to NYC boutiques of the same variety, these prices are a steal!) head upstairs to Babooskha and check out the selection of clutches, vintage clothing, accessories, boots and more!
Most of the offerings are vintage, such as these silk pieces below:
The black one-piece number was approximately $80.00, but don't worry about it, I've already copped it! I had to wait for it to come back from a magazine photo shoot, but that's a story for another day...
Other vintage finds include these clutches...the prices are very reasonable, the black purse on the right is $38.00! :
Many of the pieces, such as the bubble shorts below, are made by boutique owner and designer, Babooshka herself—Francesca Sloan, so you don’t have to worry about seeing everyone else in your outfit.
These bubble shorts, in various colors and patterns, were $46.00!
Babooshka’s Sansom Street digs will close in December, but never fear, the new address, as of February, will be in Olde City at 3rd and Market. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed!
