THE TREND­SET­TERS

Richmond Hill Post - - Best Shooping -

PARI DAVIS got her first job in fash­ion at the ripe age of seven. It was at her aunt’s bou­tique, but need­less to say, she’s al­ways had a knack for what to wear, and so it’s no sur­prise WANT BOU­TIQUE is a lo­cal hit. 9301 Bathurst St.

BEST SHOE STORE

In a non­de­script build­ing on Ma­jor Mackenzie sits a shoe store that is most wor­thy of de­scrip­tion. Fun and var­ied, the footwear at A PER­FECT PAIR ranges from flirty fem­i­nine (stud­ded red stilet­tos) to sleek and ca­sual (tan, be­jew­elled loafers). You can also grab a dress and purse to match. 2396 Ma­jor Mackenzie Dr., #3

BEST PLUS-SIZE TOGS

Real talk: it seems im­pos­si­ble to score great sec­ond-hand out­fits in plus sizes. But thanks to CURVACEOUS CON­SIGN

MENTS, it is pos­si­ble. As one of the only re­sale shops in the GTA fo­cused on sizes 12 to 5X, this bou­tique car­ries de­signer and name brand clothes you won’t find else­where. 7670 Yonge St.

BEST EYE­WEAR

LF OP­TI­CAL is a 30-year-old fam­ily-owned busi­ness, but the prod­ucts reach far be­yond mom-and-pop shop wares. The schman­ci­est de­signer glasses, from Ba­len­ci­aga to Ce­line to Givenchy, are all on of­fer. But even bet­ter news: it sells its prod­ucts at whole­sale prices. Bet you can’t buy just one pair. 1450 Cen­tre St.

BEST KNICK-KNACKS

There’s a rea­son why every­one was so ec­static when MIN­ISO an­nounced it was open­ing in Prom­e­nade mall. The shop is renowned for selling high­qual­ity de­signer goods and adorable knick-knacks at af­ford­able prices. Elec­tron­ics, beauty prod­ucts, house­wares, sta­tionery — it has it all. 1 Prom­e­nade Cir.

Whether it’s a wed­ding, black­tie gala or a ritzy night on the town, SASHAY BOU­TIQUE will have a dress to suit the look you’re go­ing for.

The team at BLK SHEEP was in­spired to open the bou­tique af­ter trav­el­ling the world and re­al­iz­ing a gap in what GTA shops had to of­fer. 7181 Yonge St. A must-visit when it comes to find­ing the per­fect dress for your lit­tle one, BLINK BLANK cov­ers all your needs for ev­ery spe­cial oc­ca­sion. 1 Prom­e­nade Cir.
