Last fall Anne Caver of the blog life in the m lane dropped by the Kingpin’s Hideaway pop-up shop on Queen Street West in Toronto and wrote a fetching article about the experience – kingpin’s hideaway : where the vintage goes to play. The author even used one of the blouses she picked up, a silk Dolce & Gabbana blouse, in a feature fashion shoot and article Icon: Anne Caver in the blog à la mode [adj: fusion of effects] . Here’s a little nugget of Caver’s elegant prose:

Hidden in the underground “backstage” of vintage shop Cabaret, Kingpin‘s pop-up shop is every man’s best friend. Lustful for the days of smoking jackets and pipes? You’re covered. Wishing a perfect suit could be easily found with shirt options to spare? You’re covered. Dreaming of that perfect bowler or fedora to top it off? You’re covered. From suits to shoes and all the fixins, you’re covered.

Being well received is always satisfying!
