Good morning Loves. Every single Saturday when I run my weekly errands I walk by one of the coolest places in the city and I didn’t even know it was there. It’s hard for me to admit that I love something about Montreal because for the past two years all I can think about is leaving. I would move to New York City in a heartbeat if my boyfriend of 14 years would come with me…but he won’t. So for the time being I am staying put.
Finding unique shops in Montreal always makes me feel better
I have to admit that Finding cool places around Montreal is helping me hate the city just a little bit less. Montreal will never be New York City, but for now it will have to do.
I first read about Boutique 1861 from my homegirl Vanessa and last weekend I finally went in. I would love to say that Boutique 1861 is Montreal’s best kept secret but 50,000 Facebook fans would disagree. There are two locations in Montreal on St. Laurent street just above Prince Arthur and Ste. Catherine street near St. Marc.
Boutique 1861 is glamour meets girly.
This is where Carrie Bradshaw would shop if she lived in Montreal. The outfits are reasonable for the amazing quality and uniqueness that you will find in the small store. You can buy almost anything in the store including shoes, bags and dresses for $70 to $180. If you shop at Boutique 1861 you are guaranteed that no one else will be wearing the same outfit. And as a bonus, if you get hungry or thirsty while shopping you can snack on pink lemonade and macaroons. SCORE!
You don’t have to take my word for it, check out how awesome Boutique 1861 is for yourself…
