I am asked this all the time, and my answer is, it depends on what you’re looking for. Mature women should have some basic understandings about themselves: style personality, body type and lifestyle needs, for example. (To learn how I can help you, click here). Armed with this information, it’s easier to make choices about where to shop.
Here are some ideas for local boutiques:
If you are looking for designer labels, try:
- Arti’s Designer Fashion, 104 St./83 Ave.
- Bella Maas, Sherwood Park and St. Albert
- Bellissima, West Edmonton Mall and 111 St./51 Ave.
- Blu’s, Southgate Centre
- Sonia’s Runway, 108 St./23 Ave.
- Who Cares Wear, 112 St./Jasper Ave.
If you’re looking for unique fashion, edgier looks or hipper street style, try:
- Bamboo Ballroom, 104 St./83 Ave.
- C’est Sera, 104 St./83 Ave.
