Montreal, Ville Marie, Quebec’s biggest city – no matter what you call it, one would be hard-pressed to not call this island in the St. Lawrence one synonymous with style, culture, and a certain “joie de vivre” embodied by all of its residents. Of course, as a fashion blogger who considers herself based in Montreal and has lived here for the past three years, I may partially biased in making such a statement. But really, with so much vintage treasures waiting to be found in les friperies, lots of independent designers, high-end department stores like Holt Renfrew and Ogilvy, and fast-fashion names like H&M and Zara, how can one NOT embrace style and a fashionable outlook on life? While it’s true that Montreal is a lot better off with shopping choices than other Canadian cities, along with Aritzia, Topshop was a name absent on the roster of favourite shopping places of fashionistas (sidenote: Aritzia will be opening a retail location in Montreal within six months – YES!) – until last week, that is.
