SHOP TALK: Victoire

Photo by Angela Gordon

This cute boutique focuses on vintage-inspired pieces, bringing a coy style to designer dresses, upcycled duds, and pretty jewellery. You’ll also find plenty of draped tops, perfect for hittin’ the clubs. The addition of a second location earlier this year on Wellington West suggested the Victoire gals are in no way resting on their gold-plated laurels, and this fall they are continuing the momentum with a number of shopping events. Visit the Dalhousie Street store on October 9 for a double whammy: the annual Chatte Bottee Shoe Sale and the brand new Some Like it Hot Vintage Lingerie Sale. Whether it’s pumps or a pinup look you’re after (or a hot little outfit that brings together both), you’d be well advised to get there early.

The Look: Mad Men meets Jersey Shore

The Labels: Valerie Dumaine, House of Spy, Dace

Perfect for: demure gals with a wild side

USP: fun events that bring vintage shoes (not to mention intimate apparel) from Montreal and beyond to Ottawa
