With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it seemed like we ought to drop a few gift tips. Forget gift cards (that’s so impersonal) and don’t you dare even look at appliances. Breakfast in bed and macaroni necklaces aside, Mom’s always love feeling stylish. Orangetree Boutique (190 Ottawa Street North) has you covered. Every item in the boutique has been selected with incredible scruitny, showcasing only brand new and you’d-never-know-anyone-wore-it consignment items that are sure to be a hit. There is so much to choose from, but we narrowed it down to a few of our favourites to get your imagination going.
First things first – the dress. We picked this MySquare maxi dress, in dark coral, because the cut and colour is flattering on all body types and skin tones. The v-neck is just the right amount of flirty, and it’s machine washable. The one we grabbed was size 20 and only $49. We paired it with a leather Chenson purse, only $19. We chose this bag specifically, because it has all the pouches a Mom could need to keep everything organized. It even has a detachable change purse, so she doesn’t have to go digging for coins. You can polish off the look with a classic pearl necklace for $15, and toss in a fun summer scarf, $15. We love the kisses on this soft, light fabric. but make sure you give your Mom real ones on Sunday.
