Spank is a locally owned clothing boutique with a twist. The owner has five shops with four in the Vancouver area and one right here in Victoria. If you’re looking for dresses, you have plenty to choose from in the absolutely massive Victoria location. When you walk in, it feels a bit like walking into Sitka, only with less stuff happening, so you have more room to breathe (and browse). The style in Spank leans toward the very popular and oh so addicting vintage style with a modern edge, think flirty dresses with and exposed zipper or short circle skirts. Spank focuses on a lot of Canadian lines, including their own exclusive house brand, Lost & Found.
Spank is right up my alley, as 90% of the clothing I wear consists of cute dresses. It’s especially exciting when you can pick up a dress for only $80 at Spank. I like that you can find cute vintage inspired dresses and coats, and I find that their house brand Lost and Found is great for pieces that are trendy, but done differently. I bought the coolest sweater here last year and when I saw it, I just knew. It had a place in my heart, and more importantly, my closet. It’s the prefect boho chic and the details are fab. Definitely check out the Lost and Found line!
Spank’s Victoria store is massive; a maze of dresses, coats and accessories. While I liked most of the clothes in Spank, they did seem a bit generic – nothing jumped out at me immediately. However, Vanessa found a lovely burgundy coat with big buttons and an intricate pattern up the front. I will definitely be back to see their summer stock.
