Violet Boutique is an assemblage of drool-worthy pieces. Owner Genevieve Allen curates a mélange of pieces that vary from patterned, to quintessentially structured, to bright pops of colour. Covetable lines like Rachel Comey, Suno, and Rag & Bone call this boutique home.
Why we love it: This is the type of store that a mother-daughter duo can walk in and both discover something they love.

Violet Boutique’s Christmas gift pick: Lizzie Fortunato Primary Crystal Necklace, $600. I love giving (and receiving) jewelry as a gift. It’s something that you wouldn’t necessarily buy for yourself and every time you wear it you’ll think of the person you received it from – and one size fits all!
Top of Genevieve’s holiday wish list: Claire Vivier wallet from Oliver and Lilly’s, $208. I’ve been looking for the perfect wallet forever and this one is it! It has an aqua blue lining – it’s all about the special details.
