Every mom deserves a flattering dress, one she can count on to make her look and feel like a yummy mommy. But after having kids, finding that cute little number may be a less than appealing endeavour. Have no fear. Just head to clothing store Doll Factory by Damzels in Leslieville. This one-of-kind dress shop is sure to have something you’ll adore.
Chic Meets Street
Doll Factory by Damzels is a clothing store full of pieces that exude edgy, urban style mixed with a sophisticated, vintage vibe. Inspired by the rock and roll lifestyle, Damzels’ line of stylish dresses, accessories and shoes is a rocker girl’s dream come true. Designed to combine a gritty feel with a feminine edge, the unique line of clothing available at Damzels is not to be missed.
Design duo, Kelly Freeman and Rory Lindo have created a spectacular line of feminine dresses with an edgy appeal that flatter a variety of figures. Their attention to detail, and dresses designed specifically for the over-30, stroller pushing crowd have garnered them a local and celebrity following. Mom customers are particularly impressed with fabric that holds in all the lumps and bumps and creates killer curves, while Damzel dresses have also been spotted on such celebrities as Arcade Fire, Fiest, Magneta Lane and the Donna’s.
Although the dress is the specialty at Damzels, great accessories like hats, shoes, and scarves are also available. While visiting the store, I was immediately drawn to what I like to call, “the altar to shoes.” A wall devoted to shoes? What could be better than that? The shoes are tested for comfort by store staff before earning a place on the wall. So not only do they look hot, they also feel great and are comfortable for walking more than a few feet; a perfect combination. A number of great, tall boots with fashion forward buckles, zippers and metal details can also be found on a separate wall space devoted to the boot. The decor in the store is also an homage to the vintage rock scene. Pinkpaton leather seats, and graffiti inspired flower designs on the walls, create a cool and classy atmosphere. Combine the great environment with the helpful and friendly staff, and Doll Factory by Damszels is the perfect place to find that hot little dress and all the accessories for the perfect outfit.
Threads for Rocker Babes
What rocker mom would feel complete without some cool threads for her little bundle of joy? Damzels offers a variety of rocker baby onesies and other baby clothes. Onesies with rock labels are available along with other edgy patterns and designs. If you’re in need of a dress to make you feel beautiful and hip, head to Doll Factory by Damzels to pick up something special for yourself, and while you’re there you might as well grab something to make your little one look as cool as you do!
Doll Factory by Damzels is open Tuesday to Saturday 11am to 6pm, Sunday 12pm to 5pm, and is closed on Mondays.
