Greetings blogging world! I know it's been a while! What a whirlwind the past few weeks have been! My sister flew in from out west to visit, we celebrated my mom's birthday, I wrote a bunch of final essays... it's been crazy! One of the friends I follow on instagram recently posted a photo of a purchase she made from a little shop in Montreal called Boutique 1861 and of course I had to check out their website! A few hours of online Black Friday online shopping later and I found a beautiful dress, blouse and necklace that I couldn't resist! Check them out below!
As far as packaging goes: A+ for Boutique 1861! I love whenever stores include handwritten notes! And of course, beautiful tissue paper and ribbon are always welcome. I also thought the little box containing a spare button was just the cutest thing! These gals did a great job adding a feeling of luxury to my purchase. It was almost to pretty to open up!
I'm starting to realize I absolutely adore polka dots! I think they're super classy. I bought this blouse to start building my casual work attire wardrobe (which is currently pretty non-existent). The pearl necklace is a great accessory to add a little interest to plain tops. And the dress! Oh man! This dress! I love it to pieces! It fits great and is the perfect length! I bought it with the intention of wearing it to a specific event in the new year, so I'll have to wait a little longer before I wear it, but I can't wait!
I'm so pleased with this clothing store! I love everything I bought, and the employees put in obvious effort to make sure customers are satisfied! Take a peek at their website (here) if you're interested. Fair warning: you may not be able to resist their fabulous pieces!
Did you get any Black Friday deals this year?
