Girl on the Wing is a retail boutique specializing in vintage clothing and antiques. The shop is a well-curated collection of“lovely little things” that have been collected over time and from the far corners of the world. Girl on the Wing is the start of something special, a style empire where all good things come together. A lovely, romantic atmosphere where one finds inspiration in the past, music, culture and dreams. A little haven of loveliness, where people can shop, interact, share and play dress up to their heart’s content.
Director and proprietor, Whitney McMeekin, is a graduate of Ryerson University with a BDes in Fashion Communication. Her love of the past and style have taken her through many experiences, both within the fashion industry and in different specialty retail shops. Through her years of learning and taking part in this industry, she has been collecting pieces from every place she goes and has accumulated a collection that offers something for any type of person with an appreciation for style.

In honour of Oscar week, I've been compiling images of my favourite Old-Hollywood movie stars. Today's style icon is Loretta Young, who won her academy award for Best Actress 65 years ago in 1948. I am in love with her playful style on and off screen. Check out some of her best costumes (harlequin clown!) and off-set outfits (hello valentine outfit...could have mistake her for Marion Cotillard).
