November approacheth, which means it is time to haul out the wool, the warm and the windproof from the back of the closet. If you are in the market for something new and stylish this year, consider trading in last season’s coat for a newer model at JoshuaDAVID in Westmount. This high-end boutique is currently holding a Coat Drive until the end of October; all used coats will be given to local Montreal homeless shelters, and all used coat donators receive a 10% discount towards the purchase of any new, shiny , off-the-rack outerwear piece in the store. Labels currently in-store include Tara Jarmon, Gomez-Garcia and this gorgeous little number by Mackage. Also, look into some of the wonderful services offered by the JoshuaDAVID boutique, such as personal wardrobe cataloguing (they’ll input your entire wardrobe into a database and build you a catalogue of outfits – what!?), after-hour consultations and full-on manhunts for that one item you desperately want but cannot find. Warmth and style can go hand-in-hand in a Montreal climate, promise!
