Be a Rebel in a Blue (or Red, or Black) Dress at Victoire


Bringing Victoire to Toronto was a mass enterprise—a crowd-funding effort raised more than $10,000 from loyal customers of the two existing Ottawa shops. Owners Regine Paquette and Katie Frappier have earned fashionistas’ faith by stocking a mostly Canadian selection of feminine sundresses, classic separates and whimsical jewellery curated for “rebel girls with good manners.” Among the labels: Toronto’s Dagg & Stacey, Isak and Inger, and Sara Duke; Vancouver-based Gwen Delicious and Erin Templeton; Ottawa’s Le Petite Julie; and Ursa Minor from Montreal. International brands are peppered throughout the boutique, as is the house line of baubles repurposed from deadstock jewellery. Open daily. —Linda Luong
