A Weekend In Montreal

I have just returned from Montreal. I flew across the country on Friday to spend a weekend with some of my best friends. It was an amazing trip, that went by way too fast and here I am already back in Vancouver again. Though I caught a horrible cold, Shanah convinced me to brave the cold to model her latest top in Old Port.  In return I suggested she name the beautiful sweater after me, its called The Missy.  

The architecture in Montreal was so surreal, it felt as though I was in Europe rather than Canada.  I can't wait to go back.  There were so many quaint little shops, one of my favorites was called Unicorn.

I tried on the most beautiful dress there, and I thought it would be perfect for my wedding, but it was the wrong size. It was made by Eugenia. I also went to a charming little shop called Lustre that had local fashion designs. 

But my favorite shop in all of Montreal was called Fuschia, it is a little cafe style restaurant on 4050 avenue Coloniale, that has a set menu that includes tea and a dessert.  All of there amazing desserts have flowers in them. I bought a bag of Lavender coffee there and some rose petal salt.  The lavender coffee is the best coffee I have ever had.
