Samantha Pleet and Hannah Metz Pop Up!

Psst...We have something BIG planned for October 1st so mark your calendars and call up your besties cause this is a night not to be missed!

On October 1st, Victoire Boutique is elated to present to you two indie designer queens right here in Toronto to meet with customers and showcase their latest collections. NYC-based clothing designer Samantha Pleet will be in attendance for this special day and will also be joined by Hannah Kristina Metz, a Canadian-born NYC-based designer. 

Samantha Pleet has built a following of fashion devotees over the last 9 years of designing. Pleet has her inspired and ethereal clothing featured in the coolest boutiques around the world, and Victoire has proudly carried her for the last 2 years. Pleet's collections have a cult following with everyday dreamers and modern icons alike. Pleet will be showcasing her Fall collection and select discounted pieces from past seasons.

Hannah Kristina Metz is surely a familiar name and face for all vintage loving web followers of the last 10+ years. Metz has found success in many past projects from running a Vintage shop in California, designing a lingerie collection (The Loved One) and collaborating on photoshoots with Victoire. Metz's creative force has now been applied to a debut clothing collection inspired by literary love stories. Metz will be at the shop on October 1st and selling beautiful pieces from her debut line, HKM.

Fall is just around the corner!!!

It sneaks up on you when you wake up in the morning to a slight chill in the air. It looks sunny outside but as you reach your bus stop, your legs are full of goosebumps! Yes folks, this is the Autumn creep! It goes from 35 degrees to 15 quicker than cafes can make their pumpkin spice lattes!  But don't worry - we've got just what you need to say goodbye to summer with a smile. Because who doesn't love a new shopping season? Come check out all these beauties and more in the Wellington Shop this weekend for  Tastes of Wellington West

First up is this cutie that's been popping up all over our Instagram and Pinterest. The Act Three Apparel Marine Dress is a tried and true blue beauty. The rounded collar is so Little House on the Prairie and those pleats at the waist are as crisp as Autumn air! It's comfortable, practical - you can wear this out to the Farmers' Market or to work - and adorable!

Act Three Apparel Marine Dress - $160 - Available at all 3 shops and online.

Next is one of my personal fave outfits. You can't say Fall without lumberjack plaid and what better way to wear it than in this sweet button front skirt from Birds of North America? It sits nice and high on the waist, perfect for tucking in blouses (or pairing with our favourite Hornero Crop top!).  To go along with it is the Betina Lou Agatha top. Made from a bamboo knit, this little black top is complete with a sharp white collar. Seriously, we cannot get enough of collars this season! 

Betina Lou Agatha Sweater - $160, available at all thee shops! Birds of North America Cotinga Skirt - $142, available at West, Toronto, and online. 

To add a little extra edge to this outfit, these new Coconuts by Matisse Stillwater Oxfords are la piece de resistance. These super rad shoes have the height of creepers, amazing traction (you won't be slipping in these puppies!) and are just badass. 

Matisse Black StillWater Oxfords $95. Available at all three shops and online.

You can't go wrong with a denim dress in the Fall. This Birds of North America dress has the most perfect fit! It is cinched at the waist with a slight bit of flare to create an A-line. It buttons all the way up, showcasing a pointed collar. It has nice long sleeves that are gathered ever so slightly for that feminine touch. This dress is just the ultimate! It also comes in a light blue faded denim. 

Birds of North America Hoatzin Dark Denim Dress - $218 - available at West, Toronto and online in the Dark Denim. Available in Faded denim at Dal, Toronto and online.
These burgundy booties are the perfect match for this dress. Matisse Footwear is the newest addition to the Victoire family. They are beautifully priced and Vegan - no leather is involved but they do have a suede look. These ankle boots have a real sixties vibe - the pointed toe and block heel is *just* right. The two tone deep wine colour has a textured pattern on the ankle panel for contrast. We are smitten!

Matisse Abbott Bootie in Wine - $115 - available at all three locations and online. Also available in Black.

Last but not least is the dress made from our velvet dreams. The Vivienne dress from Toronto's Act Three Apparel is so luxurious. It has a beautiful full skirt that drapes into thick folds, and the velvet is just shiny enough that it feels really glamorous! Hitting the dance floor in this cutie is a must! 

Act Three Apparel Vivienne Dress - $195 - Available at all three locations and online!
 So swing by and check out all these new fall digs so you're prepared when the chill hits!

Time for a Change

Although the hot summer days and nights prevail it is impossible not to think of fall, which is just around the corner. You are probably asking yourself what could be the good news about this fact? Well, for one, the beautiful fresh and crisp air. More importantly though, are the clothes that come with this change of season!

Betina Lou Camel Laura Skirt 

This fall season at Victoire is full of classic cuts that have a way of making you feel good about yourself before you even see it on in the mirror. One of the very special lines we carry that makes you feel this way is called Birds of North America (made with love in Canada). Designer Hayley Gibson takes us on an adventure with each dress this season, whether you are a woodsy nymph, a galaxy gal, prefer sixties glam, or appreciate plain jane, there is something for every woman. This line screams hot date with yourself! And by this we mean feeling incredible in what you wear. There are also many other special lines we carry and adore just as much, which have also proven this season will be one about great cuts, with simple details, and stand out prints.

We hope you feel ready for a little wardrobe change. Take yourself on a hot date to visit us so we can show you exactly what we mean!
