Fall is approaching, and even though we will be saying goodbye to Summer, we will be saying hello to all the wonderful new Fall clothes! And what better way to welcome the season than with a collection launch from one of our favourite designers!? 

From Wednesday September 2nd until Sunday September 6th you can shop the ENTIRE Birds of North America Fall/Winter collection. Yup, that's right - all of it. We will have every style, size and colour-way in our Wellington shop, as well as on our webstore and Toronto will be stocked full of our favourite pieces with extras just for the event!! 

This is an event not to be missed especially if you are a die hard, BONA-fide (haha get it?) fan (which, let's face it, who isn't!?). Here are some sneak peaks of styles that will be available!

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!

Staff Sale Picks!

It's the last month of summer and that means the end of the sale is quickly approaching!! To help make shopping easier for you, here are some of our top picks to help you score the best deals!

1. The Covet Lisa Camisole is one of my favourite pieces for it's subtle print and light feminine fabric. Made from silk and cotton, it feels like nothing on! We've got a couple of these left so grab it while ya can!

Covet Lisa Camisole - on sale for $52 down from $84. Available at Dalhousie and online.
2. These Valerie Dumaine Alvin Shorts are a top pick for me once again for their feminine print and lightweight fabric. Made from linen, they are super breathable and have a great chic-ness to them! They sit comfortable at the waist and are just so sleek. Perfect with a pair of nude heels! They also come in the prettiest shade of baby pink!

Valerie Dumaine Alvin Shorts in Snakeskin - $90, down from $129 - available in both Ottawa stores and online.

3. Sera Ghadaki Marmaris Dress
I just can't get enough of prints! This uber cool dress is by Toronto's Sera Ghadaki and is made from a unique photo printed fabric. This futuristic print is reminiscent of the surface of the moon, but in reality it is taken from a beach in Marmaris, Turkey! So so cool. And it's super stretchy and light so it's great for when you wanna be comfortable and beat the heat!
Sera Ghadaki Marmarais Dress - $144, down from $180. Available at Dalhousie or online.
4. Birds of North America Bittern Dress. 

This dress has the most beautiful fit. It's great for weddings and any occasion where you need to dress up but don't want to get too fancy. The bodice hugs closely to the body and has the perfect amount of flare. This fabric is also too pretty - it has a touch of sheen to it making it that little bit *extra* swoon worthy.
Birds of North America Bittern Dress in light blue - $137, down from $196 - available in Toronto, Dalhousie and online.

And last but not least, my personal go-to for everyday (you've probably seen me wear this skirt everytime you come in the shop).  It's light, breezy, modest - but you do have the option to show some leg - and so versatile! I wear it with everything from a cropped tank or tied up blouse, to a basic tee. You can dress it up or down, and everywhere you go people will comment. The fabric has this fluidity to it and shimmers in the sunlight. *swoon*

Betina Lou Daisy Skirt - $128, down from $160 - available at West and online.
