Explore | Great Fashion Finds @ Quintessential

There so many great women’s fashion stores in downtown Nanaimo. Take Quintessential for example – fresh, stylish, and… dare I say… hip? All the cool kids still use the word hip, right?


It’s always such a treat walking in to Quintessential. Aside from the raddest mix of sophisticated blazers, airy summer dresses, and quirky jewelry, I’m always drawn to the pops of colours that stand out against the understated, modern decor. Also – colour co-ordination. I’m a sucker for order and harmony.

It’s so hard to shop in Quintessentials and not want to break my bank. THEY HAVE SUCH CUTE CLOTES. They carry a great mix of clothing too. Searching for something to spice up your work wardrobe? Check. A printed, flowy top for running weekend errands? Check. Or maybe a cute dress to stand out on a night on the town? Triple check.

But it’s not just cute clothes that Quintessential carries – they have a wide range of accessories too. From hats to scarves to bags to shoes, you can pretty much find a whole new wardrobe here. One of my favs is their collection of necklaces (and other jewelry). From bold statement pieces like a colourful & metallic collar necklace to quirky owl pendants, you can find a necklace to go with any outfit.

Quintessential also carries a rad selection of footwear:
