Guys! We started a secret Instagram account where we've been uploading pics of some of our one-off sale rack gems! Check out @victoiresupersale. These are the pieces we only have 1-2 left of (size is marked on each listing) and the prices are STEALS I tell ya! You email us, we send you a Paypal invoice - done! Have a look at a few of the gems that you can scoop up for yourself!

You've got your phone in your pocket all the time, but you've got to haul ass all the way to Victoire to see the super sales, what a drag... Well that inconvenience is O-V-E-R now 'cause all the deals can be found on your phone. And hey! If you ever see something on the Instagram account that you want to try on beforehand, just ask us/comment and we can put it aside for you. Now that you know, happy shopping!

With Love or Whatever

If you've been following the shop on social media in the past few weeks, you may have noticed a new line that we just can't get enough of. It's called With Love or Whatever and it is the brainchild of Ottawa based illustrator and all around rad gal, Chanelle Foisy! She recently designed some Drake themed pin packs for an event at our Toronto location last month (Champagne Pop'y) and also drew up the poster for the Bey Bey All Night dance party at Babylon last weekend.

 A selection of these pins is available at all three shops and are $2 each.
As you can tell, Chanelle's been a busy bee as of late but she got a chance to do a sweet lil interview this week with me, Shaya! I've got my very own blog called Mild Eyes where I share things I like and talk to some creative folks I admire. Check it out, you won't be disappointed! We talk a little about her process and she shares what her ultimate dream coffee date would be - cos that's what really matters, right?? She even mentions some fun projects that she's got in store!
The babely Chanelle chillin' in her  dreamy room/studio space.
If you look closely you can totally see the graphic print of our Burger tee from last summer framed on her wall. What a wicked idea!

Be sure to check out that post for the full interview, peeps. I'll leave you with a little teaser for now in which she makes a sweet little shout out to Katie and Regine! <3

A lot of your recent work involves joining forces with other creative folks be it local shop Victoire Boutique or DJ Matt Tamblyn. What other collabs have you got lined up? (If you can spill the beans!)

C: I have a few upcoming projects with Victoire – I’ll be doing a guest window at the West shop August 15th, as well as something pretty exciting happening in October for Support Local Month, to mention a few. RĂ©gine and Katie have been super supportive of my work, and it’s been great collaborating with such rad, creative gals. Matt and I are currently working on some more SILK X With Love or Whatever merch, so keep an eye out for that! I also have something really cool coming up in August – it’s a secret so I can’t talk about it too much just yet, but it’s R&B related and it will be the best.

Back to Basics

My personal style is pretty eclectic but I would definitely say that I cannot go without having some great basics in my wardrobe to balance things out. That being said, these pieces by Toronto based designer, Leilanni Todd, are right up my alley! 

Racerback dress, on sale for $85! Originally $100. Available at the Westboro shop. 
 I've been seeing this style a lot this summer but I love how Leilanni gives it a little more edge with the dramatic curved hemline and how she made it slightly oversized. It's a sophisticated yet rad to the bone summer look that I dig! 

Curved T dress, on sale for $85! Originally $100. Available  at the Westboro and Toronto shops. Ursula bag by Eleven Thirty,  $160. Available at all 3 locations. AJ Morgan sunnies, $19. Various styles available at all 3 shops.
Here's another Leilanni gem that hits all the right minimalist spots. Super cool and casual. Just the way I like it!

Enlisted shorts, $102. Off Duty button up crop top, $102. Available at the Dalhousie shop. 
Okay, so these two pieces don't have the same simplicity as the others in this post but you can never go wrong with classic camo, y'all. These bad boys can be worn as separates or together as a jumpsuit if you're feelin' adventurous! They are now available at the Dalhousie shop in Ottawa so come thru and check them out!

some goods in _goods_

It's so lovely working at the Wellington store and having the little bonus of the home goods section. Having a love for home decor myself, I truly enjoy seeing what Jess has hand picked to bring into the shop. Recently we received a shipment from Hatchet, a textile studio based out of Oakville, Ontario. With beautiful handmade items and nature as her inspiration,  conscious designer Christina Obuch uses plant based/solvent free materials for her collection. So not only are you supporting Canadian design but you are also high-fiving the environment. Perfect!

* tea towels are all $18.00
* square feather pillow $50.00. We also have a second pillow not pictured: the narwal print is available in a oblong pillow form for $40.00

(available in the goods section at the Wellington location)
