shop visit: reborn


After we made our way into the city from the airport, we had an hour or two before stores closed and headed to Old Montréal to check out Reborn. It is a long narrow store with clothing rails down one side, jewelry displayed on the opposite wall, and shoes towards the back behind a large black glossy storage unit.

The Sandra Backlund pieces were my absolute favourite. I LOVE this top- it's amazing! I have a feeling you might be able to wear something like this in Montréal and not get a second look. Not once (that I saw) did anyone gawk at my sartorial choices (drop crotch trousers and tabi boots namely) like they sometimes do in Vancouver. I was thrilled.

Lucky! The actual shop reminds me of the online store, so simple and clean. I've eyed that Sandra Backlund piece myself, its amazing.
