At long last in Toronto’s hyper-developing Liberty Village, we are starting to see an upsurge in retail movement. Located on the first floor (#121 in the outdoor walkway) of 171 East Liberty Street, is newly-opened Vocado: a sweet and stylish little spot for the local (or visiting) fashionista.

Vocado, as in “av”, is owned by accountant turned savvy shopgirl, Emily Dobbie. It’s hard to imagine she was ever en route to investment banker-dom – she’s lovely and sprightly and far too effervescent to be a number cruncher, in my humble opinion. Upon walking into her boutique, I immediately notice the airily and artfully crafted space. With subtle and unique design elements bolstering hints of organic inspiration, Vocado is a sight for sore eyes (and aching wardrobes). The space is simply very fresh and chic – a good indicator of Emily’s overall aesthetic.

The boutique carries a nice variety of Canadian and International designers: Lily + Jae, Designers Remix Collection by Charlotte Eskildsen, dace, and Juma being the initial stand-outs. Stop in for breezy and wearable pieces – perfect for daytime brunching and lunching with girlfriends or casual work days. That being said, the clothes here are decidedly daywear, catering to 25-40 year-old women with both bright and strong senses of style.

One thing you won’t find at Vocado? The long summer dress. “Summer is just around the corner so why not hike up those hemlines and show a little leg with a sassy skirt?!” Emily suggests. I couldn’t agree more. There really is no better warm-weather combination than demure up top and leggy on the bottom.

As a welcome addition to the condo-size décor shops and other retail miscellany of Liberty Village, Vocado is sure to delight the many lovely ladies who stroll and pedal their way through Toronto’s West End.

Open Tuesday-Sunday. By appointment only on Mondays.

    Moncler , famous for its high-level custom made jackets, joint hands with Alessandra Facchinetti, art director for ladies` wear of Gucci, designed Gamme Rouge embroidered coats series last year. The name of the series is called Moncler-Gamme Rouge. This kind of coat is full of paillettes, making the whole coat looks quite shinning. Believe this winter, there will be more “shinning stars” walking on the street.
    Besides, Moncler also cooperated with the designer of Fendi and designed another fashionable green Spy bag. This green is so beautiful. It looks like the green of leaves, but shinning. This green matches the exquisite design of spy bag, will perfectly show ladies` elegance, fashion, and charming and moving. It has become the new co-ordinate of fashion.
    These two products both show some characteristics of Moncler in some details. For example, the material of the spy bag looks the same with that of Moncler down jackets, and it seems that down has been used in the bag. For Moncler-Gamme Rouge series, it is seen obviously that the style of this series is much like some styles of Moncler down jackets. These are new challenges and challenging changes. Whether it will be sought-after by the pulic? Let`s wait and see what happens!
