Old City Philly Shop: Sugarcube

If you haven’t heard of Sugarcube in Old City, you’ve either just moved to Philly or have been living under a rock.  Located on 124 North 3rd Street, its small facade doesn’t compare to the huge store inside. Covered from wall to wall with true quality clothing from hard-to-find labels such as Dunderdon, Left on Houston, and Gestuz.  With a log cabin meets urban-warehouse vibe, this veteran boutique has a mix if high-end designers, mid-priced labels, and vintage picks for women and men.  It’s sturdy, industrial tables are covered with unique, handcrafted jewelry, Lavender Brown prints and hats by Christys’ and Coal Headwear.  Recycled wooden shelves are laid with various vintage shoes, and denim by Levi’s and Men’s A.P.C. button-up shirts and trousers.

I have a huge crush on Pendleton prints, iPad covers, wallets, bags, and blankets….so uber-comfy.  Sugarcube is THE boutique for knits, from lightweight Demylee striped cardigans & Goddis to luxurious Qi Cashmere and chunky Dunderdon sweaters. The collection is not for the penny-pincher, but it’s solid quality and there is still a mix of affordable brands and accessories.  
Lines such as as Alternative Apparel, Miss Me Couture and Lucca Couture are beyond chic and within the fashion-lover’s budget.  The store has recently received many of it’s spring arrivals by these labels; which will make the perfect cocktail dresses for your upcoming weekend soiree and wedding.
This may be an odd observation, but Sugarcube has, hands-down, the best dressing rooms I have ever been in.  Not just because they are spacious, but the lighting makes you look amazing!  Honestly, who would purchase a $200 dress if you’re staring at yourself under horrible fluorescent lightbulbs?
