LoveBug Vintage Budapest – A Unique Experience For All Fashion & Accessory Lovers

Lovebug vintage budapest
Taking a trip to a new city is an exciting experience for any adventure driven traveller. As one of Europe’s latest hotspots for travellers young and old, Budapest is bursting with charm and history while simultaneously oozing a unique, laidback atmosphere. In the city that has something for everyone fashion gurus do not go unloved. The fashion scene in Budapest is very mixed meaning that streets are dotted with classic Hungarian style shops that come across as slightly old-school with their crowded window displays and mannequins that greet you on the street. Budapest also boasts a bustling high street with stores you expect in every city. However, as not everyone who has been to Budapest may have noticed, there is a beautiful slightly hidden world of unique, vintage fashion. The kind of shops that are bang on trend, full of once-off items from the best old school Levi denim jackets to printed tee’s and cowboy boots. Hunting out these stores could be fashion lovers greatest holiday excursion as the only way to keep up with them is through social media, talking to people and a bit of good luck. This is the case for LoveBug Vintage Budapest which is a goldmine for treasure hunters and lovers of all things unique. However finding this little gem ain’t easy as it is hidden somewhere in quiet Buda in a ground floor apartment. With very little advertisement, no in your face sign posts or Facebook adds you really have to want to find this place. When you manage to get to grips with getting to the Buda side of Budapest and taking down the apartment doorbell code you will be well on your way to experiencing a frenzy of fashionable excitement. The ground floor apartment is kitted out entirely of stock for sale and features a few personal Polaroid pictures from the lovely owner Violetta Kertész. The idea of the shop is that by hanging her items for sale up around this apartment, it creates the ambience of a ‘girly room’ and it is exactly that. With jewellery hanging on the most decadent of hangers on every open space on every wall, retro sunglasses dotted around the room and jewellery box after jewellery box filled with trinkets, necklaces, crystals, bracelets, broaches, earrings old and new on every shelf – it is impossible not to fall in love with something. Strutting around LoveBug Vintage, trying to take everything in you will also feast your eyes on coat hangers filled with leather bags of every shape and size with fringing to make any boho babe weak at the knees. Dresses are pinned on the walls and skirts flow from the winding wooden staircase. Donut print tees and unicorn swimwear whirl around the room and you find yourself in a fashion frenzy of wanting absolutely everything. Rails of unique jackets, coats and dresses broaden your ideas of what fashion is as many of the styles you see are things you may never have considered wearing before, but their charm seems to draw you in.
