Why We Love It: Viens Avec Moi 
There’s a new local retail authority in town: Viens Avec Moi, a boutique that opened in the fall of last year past Wellington West. Viens Avec Moi or VAM has quickly become an Ottawa fashion community class-act; think minimalist/rustic décor, themed rooms that create a sort of shopping-fun-house experience, and *sigh* absolutely bewitching fashion-things. My trip to Viens last week was totally rewarding: I met its lovely owners, quite literally salivated over Jenny Bird jewelry, Free People and Velour goods, and was reminded of how much I love exploring local. Viens is divided into a series of rooms—the shoe room, the vintage room…to name a few—each offering a different shopping experience. I grant its creative presentation an A+, particularly due to what the owner referred to as Christian’s corner, in which Baxter Men’s skincare products sit in an antique medicine cabinet. Also, to that denim Free People button-up with eyelet-back—I seriously can’t stop thinking about you and someday we’ll be together. ilu ♥ . - S
