On the hunt for that Toronto boutique you can finally claim as your own, the one that sells cool women’s clothing at just the right price? Then hightail it to Northburbia and visit Denise Clothing at the Shops at Don Mills (Don Mills Rd. and Lawrence Ave. E.). Denise has locations at Sherway Gardens and Square One, but the Shops at Don Mills store is larger than the other locations and carries more stock. A recent visit to this Denise location revealed spring’s brightest colour palette in popular pinks, oranges, blues, and yellows on display. Denise Clothing has this season’s gorgeous funky, floral blouses anywhere from $80 up and an array of dressy tanks, including a tantalizingly turquoise one to wear with jeans starting at $59.99.
Newsflash: the maxi dress is back and Denise has an abundant selection for work or play. If you’re looking for that perfect patio dress, Denise has several mid-thigh, sleek mono- or multi-coloured sundresses including a knock-out, butt-clinging, beigy-gold number for around $129.99 by Arc & Co. And no need to fret about whether your patio dress is appropriate for the office because Denise has got this all wrapped up with cute, button-up sweaters in matching colours. Run, don’t walk to this Denise location because with summer sales around the corner, many of these pieces will fly out of the store.
