Now that you’re fortified, it’s time to shop.
For beautiful women’s clothing, I go to Kismet
. My daughter favours Purr,
which also has fantastic choices for women. All three have wonderful clothing and attentive staff to help me choose something awesome.
My favourite recent choice from Kismet is a black moto jacket embellished with floral embroidery. At Splash, I had a painless experience being fitted with a pair of skinny jeans that make me feel my best self (and possibly a slightly younger looking self in the right light!).
There are also two excellent men’s clothing stores in the area – Brooklyn
and James and Dickson
. The former is casual clothing, the latter a dressier selection of suits, ties, socks, and shirts. There’s a shoe store, Sole to Soul
, if your feet need a little loving.
If you are shopping for kids, be sure to go to Purr Petite
for impossible to resist, wonderful children’s shopping.
If you’re looking for household items or gifts to bring home, Kensington still has you covered. For all things tea (including beautiful tea pots and cups, locally made tea flavoured chocolate bars, artisan teas, and stroopwaffles) go to the Naked Leaf Tea Shop
. If you need All. The. Chocolate., look no further that Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut
for locally made decadent chocolates. Metro Element
is your stop for lovely home décor and furniture. Stroll on down to Beehive
, a Kensington institution - a tiny bright yellow house you can’t miss for deliriously wonderful smelling body products and candles made from honey and beeswax.
