Rowena opened in 1998 and the Retro Glam website launched in 2011.
Personal love of vintage & classic clothing, midcentury furniture and the rockabilly/hotrod scene
We love our customers the most and the fact that we cater to XS-4XL. I love making women happy and feel pretty and the styles of the 40s & 50s are fantastic for that as they are very flattering and work on a lot of different body types.
Yes we are involved in many events such as charity events and donations, fashions shows including Edmonton Fashion Week and vend at car shows & tattoo conventions in our city. We do a pinups & pals for pets a few times every year also with donations to the Edmonton Humane Society as animals are very close to our hearts.
Car shows & tattoo conventions in our city
Our brick & mortar and website are pretty in sync. We have a little bit more product at the shop but for the most part the same style and feel. We carry both classic pinup stock and more alternative wear as we believe the modern pinup has many different faces and likes to rock whatever she feels that day!
We love Heart of Haute and have been customers since pretty close to the beginning. Heart of Haute is one of our top brands due to the flattering fit on all body types, variety of styles and amazing prints. We are very much in love with the new El Gato Collection also since there are a bunch of cat lovers here and the amazing mid century style print.
We are always improving and moving forwards. We truly love what we do and hope it shows! We would love people to follow our Facebook and instagram for specials, news and fantastic contests.

Hey there Haute Honeys! Hope you are all enjoying the first month of the year! We've been busy bees here making tons of new products, and revamping the favorites with fresh & fun fabrics! Let's talk all about them...It's finally here! The long awaited 'It's Raining Cats' print has made it onto the Matey Dress, Ella Top, and Moxie Skirt by Mandie Bee. I just can't resist these adorable topsy turvy felines. Mandie Bee's collection is form fitting for a gorgeous silhouette, and remember the Moxie Skirt & Matey Dress are slightly shorter than the rest of the Heart of Haute products! A perfect fit for you flirty rockabilly babes to accessorize with your favorite ballet flats if you're running around all day, or a great pair of pumps for a night out! If you're not a cat lady, don't fret - we are on the lookout for a just as cute puppy print for all the dog mamas out there! The Amanda Dress is one of those timeless dresses that make a unique addition to any retro-loving gal's wardrobe. It's a vintage inspired dress that fits like a dream, and this particular print is just gorgeous. A striking tableau of cerulean, dark blue and bright white flowers with spectacular detailing. This sophisticated floral print is eye-catching and flattering on all skin tones. Florance is a one of a kind print, it reminds me of picnics in the meadow, a fun, flirty date maybe? Especially when on the Beverly Dress, oh Bev is such a flirt! The fabulous Florance print is an array of teeny tiny blue and red flowers. Also available in the popular Sweetie Dress and the Amanda Dress. I think they are best accessorized with the Pinup Couture Wicker Purse in black. I can't resist that adorable dainty fruit charm! Winter Blossom is sure to make any lady the belle of the ball! Stunning shimmery ice blue with golden florets that glisten as your skirt twirls. Sound too good to be true? It only seems like a dream, but it's the truth! It reminds me a little of an ice fairy, but really it's a piece that can work in any season. The fabric has a bit of a pearly sheen to it also, so if you're keen on standing out in a crowd, this dress is sure to make you shine your brightest. Also available in the Amanda Dress for those gals who don't like halters. Just as a reminder dear Haute Honeys - join us on Facebook through the end of January as we are doing another Test Kitchen. That's where we show you all the new prints and styles we've been working on and get your opinions on which we should keep! As always we really appreciate your feedback! Here's just a little sneaky peeky of what could be coming your way! It's up to you! <3 Ali for HoH <3
