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)

Amber's Top Five (5)

Hey guys! My turn for summer faves! As we all know, summer is impossibly short, so I definitely don't want to waste a minute of it wearing something I can't be ready for adventure time in. These are my top 5 purchases from the shop this summer.

1. The Lost City Eye print t-shirt

No joke, I got this and wore it like 5 days in a row. It's perfect. Get it big and roll the sleeves! 
Lost City Eye t-shirt, $40
2. Leeay Aikawa necklace

Been wearing this a lot too. I like that it has both silver and copper in it, so I can also mix and match my rings. I also like that it's made of essentially hardware store parts and it's only $35!
Leeay Aikawa necklace, $35
3. Prints & Needles pouch

Keeping the eyeball theme going strong! I've been using my Prints & Needles pouch as a clutch to hold my wallet, various cards, and a lipstick or two. Makes me feel very chic to not have a backpack. 
Pouches, $35
4. Samantha Pleet Naiad romper

Also no joke, I wore this for about 5 days straight when I got it. Look how cute! Perfectly placed rib section cut-out and a drawstring waist that ties in the back which happens to be perfect for creating that cinched waist shape. We've got one of these babies left in Toronto in the beautiful mountain print.
Naiad romper, was $260, now $234!
5. Lucca Couture Daisies dress

You definitely can't bike in this dress, but oh, what a dream! Shaya and I both like to wear it with socks and 70s style brown wooden sandals, but think of the options! With Docs, with ankle boots and cut-off jean shorts, maybe even with a little white tee underneath? 
Lucca Couture Daisies dress, was $90, now $81!

Cake Days brings SALE DAYS! Our store-wide clothing sale begins this Thursday!

Since we opened way back in 2006 we have learned a few things about you all: you guys love a good sale and you love sweets! If this speaks to you: this is the week to be a fan of Victoire, cause we are delivering both!




To celebrate 8 years in business we are getting 8 CRAZY cakes made for you to enjoy with us. Each shop in Ottawa will be serving a cake mid-day Thursday through Saturday (Toronto only gets 1 cake on Saturday 'cause we are just getting to know them ;). Then on Sunday we will be revealing the winner of the last cake and a Victoire prize pack. Wanna be the winner? All you've got to do is post a picture of your fave Victoire outfit (old or new, it's all good!) with the hashtag #victoireturns8  and you could be the winner of a seriously out-of-this-world cake and a $100 gift card!

All of our clothing goes on sale THIS THURSDAY and we are pulling out lots of gems from past seasons which are on super duper sale! Cake Days/Sale Days is definitely the time to hit up both shops because treasures (and treats!) abound. 


This season's collections will be 10-40% off (with LOTS of great stuff at 40% off!) and past seasons up to 70% off!

We could not be more grateful to all of you for your support and encouragement over the last 8 years. We've got a lot of plans to make year 9 the best yet, so stay tuned!!
