I was in Ottawa last weekend to check out Winterlude and extended my stay to do a little extra wandering and of course, shopping. I was walking around the Byward Market district, killing some time before meeting my friend Denise for dinner at Play Food & Wine. In the dark, cold winter night, Trustfund was like a shiny warm beacon tucked around the corner from the restaurant I was headed to. I was easily lured in by all the colourful pieces inside this independently-owned Ottawa boutique and walked out with a cream and green printed blouse.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I dealt with Robyn and it felt like I was shopping with a friend. She gave great style advice and feedback without being pushy at all. Trustfund carries unique labels and quality pieces that you wouldn't necessarily find if you were shopping inside a suburban mall. A lot of the spring pieces had a slouchy California cool, especially when I spotted the Brandy Melville line that they carry. If your feet need a pick-me-up, Trustfund carries a whole slew of Happy Socks and Hunter Boots.
