No need to cross the Ottawa River anymore to find worthy clothes and accessories from the hottest brands. With four new stores at Les Promenades Gatineau, it’s easy to find everything on your wish list in one shopping trip. M.A.C., Pandora, Bonlook and RW&CO. are now in Gatineau. Here are three choice selections from each.
The arrival of fall is a reminder to put aside that pale pink lipstick for now. Yes, it’s time to add a new M.A.C lipstick to your kit, a signature product that made the brand’s name and is a fave this season: Marrakesh matte. It will go perfectly with your daytime outfit and your evening wear, too.
Oh No She Beta Don’t
Fave #2: A kit of eye and lip products including a four-eye-shadow palette and retro matte liquid lipcolour. With neutral shades plus colours like caramel, olive and brown, this is the perfect everyday kit to add a feminine touch and complement your fall look.
STUDIO FIX FLUID SPF 15
A light matte foundation? Yes, please. One that holds for 15 hours? Even better. One with an SPF that controls oil secretion? Impossible. Well, think again! Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 has been tested, and it’s become a M.A.C essential.
Andréanne Marquis collection
Since hitting the shelves of this 100% Quebec company that makes its glasses in Montreal, the Andréanne Marquis collection has been on a tear. With their classic round shape reinvented with a geometric touch, these Womance frames look bold and feminine, and are available in three warm colours. We just can’t resist them!
Sarah-Jeanne Labrosse collection
Like the Andréanne Marquis collection, the new Sarah-Jeanne Labrosse collection is outstanding. A tad more refined, these rectangular frames will add a boho touch to your everyday look.
Femme Libre frames
For a timeless yet contemporary look, go for Femme Libre frames. These small to medium size frames are Bonlook’s biggest seller, with a little je ne sais quoi that complements any face shape. Practical, no?
Gentlemen, if there’s one item you’ve got to add to your collection this fall, here it is. This blazer-style transition jacket is both practical and stylish, so you can wear it both to the office and on the weekend. In grey, it matches perfectly with jeans, or with pants in either black or warm colours.
Double-breasted gingham everyday stretch blazer
We’ve got a soft spot for this guy-styled gingham blazer. Double-breasted, in a fall-coloured stretch fabric, this blazer will be your best friend this season. Wear it with denim pants or, for a fancier look, with a pencil skirt.
Plaid slim leg ankle pant
With plaid all over the racks this season, it was easy for this pant to find its place as one of our picks. Mid-rise with a slim leg, it goes just right with either a nice top or a blazer. And ladies, get out your best pumps. This ankle pant is just right for showing them off.
Golden tan double leather bracelet
Hard to resist this boho-inspired bracelet. In golden tan with a round sterling logo clasp, it’s made to go with your favourite charms. And it’s timeless, so it will match perfectly with anything you wear, from monochromes and lighter shades to more seasonal oranges and earth tones.
Stacking rings have been very fashionable over the past year. It seems like we can’t get enough of them. In patterns, narrow, wide, with birthstones or in a more classic style, stacking rings add lots of understated femininity. So nice!
It’s impossible to make a trip to Pandora and not leave with an open bangle. Ideal for a classic, sophisticated look, all these bangles need is your favourite charms to bring out your style.
