Frock In Wexford, Irish Independent Boutique of the week

Wexford has its share of unique boutiques, but this store is one of the most intriguing.
"I feel that Frock is that bit different and that it offers quirky and stylish clothes for ladies and kids," says owner Nadine Kinsella, who was a potter by trade before venturing in to the retail market last autumn. The selection of clothes on offer in this intimate outlet includes many designers that are exclusive to Ireland.
As a mum to five daughters, Kinsella likes to stock comfortable and age-appropriate clothing for children. The range includes cheerful clothes with vivid animal prints, such as the hippo and monkey dresses from Ida T and the eco-friendly Katvig range, which features raincoats made from recycled bottle tops, as well as the more classic Min-a-Ture range.
The vintage section, which is housed upstairs, is well worth a visit. The display of one-off dresses from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s includes floor-length maxi dresses that are highly wearable and in fashion.
