We specialize in urban-romantic clothing, jewellery & accessories for the modern woman who loves the look of vintage but does not want to wear a costume. Yes, we have lots of ruffles, velvet and lace but there is so much more to discover in our gorgeous shop…..the displays alone will inspire you to dress like you feel inside…an edgy, romantic, gypsy woman. Think Stevie Nicks but not so much rocker chic as really cool, uniquely beautiful clothing that is destined to become your signature. It is always interesting to hear how the store is perceived. At first glance, it can be a little over-the-top glam vintage but when you take the time to really look and try on our clothing, you will be amazed at how wearable and modern it really is. Who says you can’t mix it up by wearing a romantic, ruffled pirate shirt with your fav pair of jeans and a cool wide belt? For the business woman/traveller we have a luxurious but affordable line of jersey clothing that will make you feel fabulous!
Established in 1999.
A culmination of years of clothing design and working in fashion retail I began by opening a western store, but it was not like any western store anyone had ever seen! I carried romantic, vintage-inspired women’s clothing that needed to have it’s own setting, so several years later, Tattered Rose was born. I wanted to wear uniquely beautiful, vintage-inspired clothing but I could not find it anywhere. With my clothing design background and having sewn my own clothes since I was 10, Tattered Rose was a way of sharing with other women with similar style, my taste for ruffled finery. I love ruffles and lace, and vintage glam clothing, whether “in style” or not. For me, it is not about what is trendy…this is a lifestyle boutique. You either are a Tattered Rose woman or you are not…simple as that.
I simply love beautiful clothing…the beautiful, exotic things you see on the runway or in fashion magazines….the stuff that dreams are made. I am here to help other women to dress in beautiful, romantic clothing and to change the perception we have of ourselves…one person at a time!
I am hoping to enable women to wear the clothing that makes them feel wonderful and feminine, even if it means simply wearing a romantic top or jacket with your jeans.
