WEST COAST STYLE – Laura Mitbrodt

These are a few of my favourite things

  • Jul. 30, 2015 11:00 a.m.

There are so many stores to choose from when it comes to shopping in Victoria. I prefer to shop in the smaller, local boutiques because the service is great and you can always find unique items. Here are some of my favourite local retailers:

Sitka is the quintessential west coast store featuring decor that reminds me of being in a log cabin out in the woods. Whether you are looking for an outfit to go camping, surfing or just something casual to wear out for coffee with friends, Sitka has you covered. You don’t even need to leave the store if you want to grab a coffee because they have a café built right in.

I love shopping at Still Life because they feature modern retail brands from smaller, international labels that your can’t find elsewhere in Victoria. They also have a separate shop for Him and Her which is a unique concept.

Reunion Boutique is a great place to shop if you want the latest fashion trends straight from New York. They make frequent trips to New York and scout out the newest trends and bring them back to Victoria. If you want to be in the know with the latest trends in street style I highly recommend stopping by their shop on Johnson Street.

If you are looking for clothing with a contemporary edge and a classic twist then Hughes is a great place. They feature a wide variety of designers suitable for many occasions and urban lifestyles.

Bernstein and Gold is an all-in-one shopping experience featuring exclusive designer and lifestyle brands from around the globe. Bernstein and Gold is unique because they have a spa tucked away in that back and sell skin care products alongside their fashion and accessory brands.

Outlooks for Men is the place to shop if you are a guy who is out on the town and being seen. Outlooks features clothing for all occasions including weddings, graduation, job interviews or a night on the town. If you want excellent customer service and an amazing tailored suit combined with one of a kind accessories then Outlooks is the place for you.
