Where to find an affordable party dress in Toronto?

I'm looking to find a new dress to wear on my birthday. I'd like it to be a standout piece that is really unique. I don't want to spend too much on it, because I don't have very many occasions where I can wear those kinds of things. I'd usually go to Urban Outfitters, but am looking to branch out; however Urban Outfitters is pretty representative of my style and price range.

Thanks a bunch!

I remember going to a small store named Katie on Queen Street. They had reallyy affordable cute dresses and all different styles. You'd definitely find something there. Though I haven't been there for the past 3 years so hopefully it still exists =P I remember there was another location on Yonge street (close to Dundas square) but from what I could pull out from google, here's one address and number you can try!

Address: 387 Queen St W | Toronto, ON | M5V 2A5 [ Map ]



Tel: 1 416 348-8666





Call them up to see if they're still open :) Hope this helps and hope you find a fabulous birthday dress! Happy birthday in advance! :)

Thanks! on Mar 01, 2010 @ 10:23 am

Thanks for the suggestions and for the birthday wishes!

I think I'm going to go with reviving a dress I already have, which I'm realizing is more fun than buying something new! I'll probably wear a pair of decorated tights instead of plain black ones and do something new with my hair and makeup to mix things up.

Femme de Carriere on Mar 06, 2010 @ 11:17 am

Last night, my girlfriend showed me the cutest strapless dress from Femme de Carriere. On sale now too, I think is was under $150. Strapless with pockets. If anyone is looking this dress is definitely worth seeing. It is a classic sexy vibe. Comes in black or purple. http://www.femmedecarriere.com/home.html
I can't find a pic of the dress on her website but you can find store locations.

Try Le Chateau - I bought my last big birthday dress from there and every time I walk by that store, I want to buy all their dresses...if only I had somewhere to wear all of them...

Btw, asiangoddess - Katie does still exist - I bought a dress there last spring for a formal and got tons of compliments on it.

If you have a bigger budget - try Original (what used to be F/X some years ago) they are more prom-y but you can find tons of beautiful things there.

Vintage is also an option - I love Vintage69 for their stuff.

Happy shopping!
