I recently found a new favorite place to shop in a dark corner of Westfield Mall. One of my friends from Victoria, BC told me about Aritzia, a Canadian clothing company that has branched out to US cities like SF, Seattle, Portland, Dallas, and Chicago. I’d seen it in the mall but had never felt compelled to go in for some reason. It’s in the older half at street-level, by the 5th Street entrance. When I finally went I was pleasantly surprised to find a fabulous selection of fashion-forward and well-made clothes. The price points vary but in general I think items are well-priced for the quality and uniqueness of the pieces. On my first trip to the store I met Christine, an incredibly stylish and helpful salesperson, who has since become my go-to gal when I’m looking for the key seasonal item to add to my wardrobe. Aritzia carries several house labels like Wilfred, Le Fou, and Talula, as well as designers like Current/Elliott, Acne, Citizens of Humanity, and J Brand. They have a great selection of denim jeggings and coats right now. The dress and creme-colored top from my recent lace post are from Aritzia. Check it out next time you’re cruising the mall.
