It would be nice if we could work together and make a nice list of boutiques all across the city for men and women

stop by reborn, which is imo the best boutique in montreal. the owner has great taste. it's in old montreal, which is walking distance (but yes, it is very cold), or easily accessible by the metro.

We should work on a list, great idea!

I've walked past Reborn a million times and never been inside, I'll have to check it out...

Any recommendations for a petite person shopping in Montreal? I'm planning a trip over there in May. I'm 5'2" so I don't have a lot of luck with clothing in general, most of my wardrobe is Banana Republic petites or Guess (because they make skirts and dresses short so they looks like regular length on me), lululemon (free hemming!) and some A&F. I only seem to have good luck with stores aimed at teenagers or adult stores that have petite sizes.

Reviving this thread...

My friend wants to go vintage shopping next Friday but I am absolutely CLUELESS about the friperies and the likes in Montreal. Any specific stores/locations you'd recommend?

Thanks a lot

can someone tell me where mona moore is in conjunction to old montreal?

i really want to stay there (going for art, not so much shopping), but i do want to stop by MM to see what they have in stock.

i do not really want to take costly cabs, so is the metro easy enough to navigate? will going into downtown for the night be easy?

thanks!

thesiren - Mona Moore isn't really near Old Montreal although if you're going to be taking the metro it will makes things a lot easier. Mona Moore would be at Guy-Concordia (green line) and then Old Montreal is Place D'Armes/Champs-de-Mars. As for night time, it shouldn't be a problem, the metro here is very easy to navigate and understand. Last train usually departs around 12:30am though.

Kimkhuu - You know I've never really cared about where I get my eyebrows done. I usually go to Spa Diva (in Cours Mont-Royal) but a friend told me about a place that threads eyebrows for $3 by Cote-Vertu metro. I'm too scared to try it though!

^ Thanks for the tip sweetie!

I'd like to know everyone's thought on SPACE FB's makeover. Like 4 years ago, they were selling yoga friendly active stuff. Not they're moving up a notch into Bedo-Club Monaco level....

i'm not in Montreal anymore, but:

eyebrows- i agree with Spa Diva. a bit on the pricey side, but you'll be pampered like royalty and you'll get to enjoy chocolate-dipped strawberries. it's my favourite spa.

space fb- i got the 'chance' to check out the new boutique inside complexe les ailes...

ewww. i miss the old space fb.... when everything was pretty basic, casual and quirky. now it's look like yes, bedo. not such a good thing.
