Sequin Dress from Boa in Downtown Oakville.

What could be better than having a twin sister to share clothes with? How about opening up your own boutique with her! While they may not have always shared the same style, from the time they were little girls, Daphne and Ofra Nissani have always loved fashion.

Their passion for fashion led them to open their first shop in North Toronto in 2001, followed by a second location in The Beaches. Now, the Nissani sisters have brought their divine fashion sense to Oakville, with their beautiful boutique called Boa. Daphne and Ofra have always loved Oakville, and would spend time here while visiting their mother.

Daphne says “Oakville is like a little city community in a smaller town – it was too cute to not open a store here!” And the Boa boutique in Downtown Oakville on Lakeshore Road is full of some of the cutest clothes and accessories around.

With a range of clothes that can take you from office casual to the most exciting night out, Boa will have you covered from head to toe. Walk in to this bright and colourful shop and immediately you will know that you will find something for every part of your life.


From the great range of jeans that you will pull out of the closet every weekend, to the adorable “Disco” mini-skirt for a fun and flirty night out, to comfy bamboo leggings that can take you from the grocery store to the dance floor. Gorgeous tailored blouses will brighten up your workday while the beautiful ruffled and printed tops and colourful t-shirts are ready to be taken out on the town.

Dresses and more

If a dress is in order, Boa carries an incredible selection perfect for any occasion, whether it’s for Prom or cocktails, a hot date or a wedding, you will find a fabulous frock to make the day or night extra-special.  Knock them dead with a hot orange halter dress, or play it demure in a subtle layered chiffon with flower detail in a sublime shade of mocha. Be the belle of the Ball in a gold jacquard crinoline strapless, or tear up the dance floor in the abstract black and white bandage dress. Boa has so many great styles to choose from, and the prices won’t break your handbag straps.

Boa carries everything else you need to put together your entire look, starting with body shaping line by Liz. Rated the Number One Brand by Oprah, Liz Under Control Shorts and Under Control Full Body shapers will help re-shape your figure and disguise any problem spots, so you will look and feel more confident. Don’t look any further to finish off your outfit! Boa also has just the perfect footwear you need. Sexy wedges and embellished flats, the perfect pump or a studded boot, and for when you need to ditch the heels, don’t forget to pick up a pair of “Fold A Soles”. Great for stashing in your bag, these foldable little flats are the just the remedy when the stilettos need to go. Top off your look with one of Boa’s fabulous hats, belts, and handbags, and don’t forget to check out the amazing array of gorgeous gems and jewels to add some extra sparkle.

Community support

Charity is extremely important to the Nissani sisters. Over the years, Boa has been highly involved in giving back. They recently teamed up with an amazing locally-based charitable organization called [free-them].  Founded by Oakville native Shae Invidiata, [free-them] is dedicated to raising awareness and funds to abolish global human trafficking and the modern slave trade. Purchase a beautiful bandeau top from Boa, and they will donate $2 to [free-them].

    Sounds a bit like my favorite Burlington store, Joelle’s. Will definately have to have a peak. Really like that they are charitably inclined as well. Makes me want to buy there first.
