Oakville was graced with a large influx of fashion last spring when Want Boutique opened on Lakeshore Road. Well known to Toronto fashionistas for its first location on Avenue Road, Want Boutique has established itself as the place to go for stylish, beautiful and current designs.
Want Boutique owner Pari Davis always had an eye for style. As a little girl, she loved putting on her own fashion shows which led her to a career as a fashion show producer, and eventually as a personal shopper. Her fashion-buying business trips allowed her to procure must-haves from New York and L.A., and when neighbours began to complain about all the clients who came to her home looking for the latest things, she figured it was time she started a real store. In 1998, Pari opened her first boutique on Avenue Road, followed by another on Yonge Street at St. Clair, and a Richmond Hill outpost on Bathurst Street. The Oakville boutique opened in April of 2010, bringing Pari’s fashion sense with it.

Want Boutique focuses on style, comfort and value. The collection ranges from casual and current denim pieces to gorgeous cocktail wear, with everything in between. Want Boutique carries items from over seventy designers, with something for any occasion, from everyday staples to fun and flirty pieces for a special evening.

From classic knit cardigans from Line Knitwear to stunning sequined dresses from Sherri Hill.
There is also a fantastic selection of eye-catching accessories to add a little extra sparkle to your outfit, including a range of beautiful baubles from L.A. Designers. Want also has the foresight to carry an array of fashion’s little helpers – such as Hollywood Fashion Tape to keep all your pieces in their places, and lingerie from the world-renowned Hanky Panky line, as well as undergarments from Spanx. Finish your look with a spritz of out-of-this-world delicious Pink Sugar fragrance from Aquolina.

The staff at Want Boutique is a little like having your own personal fashion stylist.
