Where do I even start with Bicyclette?
I have so much love for the ladies that run this whimsical little shop. A bright sparkling shop tucked away in a busy stretch of Queen West right by Trinity Bellwoods park, Bicyclette is a breath of fresh air in a city that’s so often much too dark and dingy.
Paige, the owner of Bicyclette, and her team of superstar staff redecorate the shop constantly, adding magical handmade touches each season to compliment the always adorable clothing. This past week the store was filled with cute little plants and bright coloured sunnies! Carrying some of my favourite brands like Wildfox and Ban.do, and a whole bunch of labels I’ve never seen anywhere else, this shop is by far my favourite place to play dress up!
Over the past few months, I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Paige in real life, and together we came up with a bi-weekly blog series for the Bicyclette blog called Take Me Out. Basically I get to take clothing from her shop out on adventures around the city and blog about it (there’s a very sweet new post coming out today in fact, so keep your eyes peeled!) I’ve been a fan of the shop itself since I moved to Toronto six years ago, so its been extra lovely to get to know the woman behind the fairytale. Every time Paige posts on instagram or whips up a new blog post, I’m always swooning, and I feel so lucky to not only be a fan, but a friend now too.
