I'll have to check TNT out. I'm guessing it's right by Calories on Ste-Catherines?

I didn't know Calories was closed! I was going to meet a friend there tonight. I guess not!

yeah it's been closed for a few months now, it saddens me. i don't know when it re-opens though, maybe it did already?

well there are racks of sunglasses near the front of the stores, like 5 of them I think. Just look at them, they're right there for you. :p

Does anyone know where I can get my hands on some Isabel Marant pieces? And where is the good lingerie (besides cheap LaSenza)?

^ I googled Isabel Marant & Montreal and TNT came up. I need to check this place out.

Thanks for the Mona Moore tip. Last time I went (maybe a year or so ago?) I was very unimpressed though. I'll have to check it out again.

I've heard good things about EvaB. on St-Laurent too, but I have yet to go. Somebody at work was telling me about E.R.A. Vintage Wear down on Notre-Dame & Guy. Not sure what the glasses selections are like though. I've mentioned here before that I had a hair colourist tell me about this vintage sunglasses store on St-Denis that apparently has amazing vintage eyewear. I've never been able to find it though and my colourist moved abroad.

thank you! id love to know where that place on st-denis is!

evaB, i've been several times but i dont think they sell eyewear.

i like the idea of vintage glasses. in new york there are stores like that in the east village where they ONLY sell vintage eyewear from another era. i was thinking thered be something similar here...

Has anyone been to the "new" Space FB warehouse on St-Laurent (next to the store itself)........

The yoga/lounge pants are all 2 for 10, same goes for the tank tops. And the rest of the store is usually 10 or 20 dollars, and more elaborate pieces going for 30$. I once saw a really nice coat there for like 30$.

SO CHEAP!!!! That's where I buy all the stuff I wear home.

For those interested in this collaboration... Comme des Garçons for H&M will be available in Montreal. I saw the ads in the current Elle.
