6a-7a Monkstown Crescent, Monkstown
Sarah Gill wanted to bring the fashion concept stores she saw in New York and Paris to Dublin—so she did, and Seagreen has been a Southside staple since its 2006 opening. Located in leafy seaside suburb Monkstown, Seagreen's inventory ranges across Frame and J Brand jeans, silky Equipment tops, Anine Bing leather jackets, Joie dresses, and chic activewear. The boutique is a pleasure to shop, and not only for clothing: The smart edit is peppered with lifestyle and art books, Hermès perfumes, and delicate jewelry. The dressing rooms are arguably some of the prettiest in Dublin, with raw-silk drapes and vintage wallpaper. The entire space smells wonderful (probably the Fornasetti candles), and the service is personable yet unobtrusive. After a leisurely browse, pop into nearby Salt for lunch.
29 Wicklow St., City Center
"Siopaella" translates quite simply to "Ella’s shop," Ella being owner Ella de Guzman. Guzman’s siopa is where locals go when they want designer vintage and resale, without having to bin-dive for it. The store itself is a tiny, crowded nook on a busy stretch of Wicklow Street, but the inventory is a legitimate treasure trove of vintage Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and if you’re lucky, the occasional Hermès Kelly bag. The racks of clothing are snugly packed, perfect for treasure hunters who like a good find. Best of all, each item is properly authenticated and always in peak condition.
