Ahhh Victoire, the shop I spent most of my time in when I was living in Ottawa completing my undergrad. This shop is near and dear to my heart for many reasons, the main one being that the boutique was started by two passionate and dedicated women. The second being that Victoire caries over 80 designers, the majority whom are Canadian women - who have been carried since its inception.
This shop showcases unique and timeless pieces that you probably won't find anywhere else.
