5 Calgary Boutiques To Keep On Your Fashion Radar
You won't leave empty-handed.
Confession: I shop occasionally…okay, occasionally every week. And what I’ve found is that malls are convenient, but it’s the smaller local boutiques where you’ll find treasures that you will wear forever. In my Calgary stomping ground, I’ve had plenty of time to wander in and out of boutiques, so I can honestly say, whether you’re looking for a quality classics with a modern twist (like luxurious Vince cashmere sweaters from Mariah) or something fun for these summer nights (my vote is for quirky dresses from Purr), there is a Calgary boutique for you.
Mother-daughter owned and operated, this boutique located in Aspen Landing Shopping Centre is your one-stop shop for everyday luxury pieces. Carrying a wide-range of lines such as Vince, Equipment, Eileen Fisher, Joie, and Periphery, this boutique is the perfect spot for women of all ages to scoop up trendy pieces, and classics, too, that you’ll wear on repeat for seasons to come.
Whether you’re looking for a wedding guest dress or an everyday pulled-together look, this boutique in Calgary’s Inglewood neighbourhood is the place to go for the most feminine finds. They don’t say #WeDoPretty for nothing. It’s the ultimate shop for those looking for more tulle, pastels and lace in their life.
Although it has locations in other cities (Edmonton, Vancouver and Toronto), there’s something special about Gravity Pope’s Calgary location. Stepping through the grand golden doors, customers know they’re in for a fashion-forward experience. Find yourself a pair of shoes before heading upstairs to snag clothing from the likes of Acne Studios and Isabel Marant.
Run entirely by personal stylists, Espy Experience is all about providing a superior customer experience.
