Our Story


We like to think of our team at The Dressing Room as YOUR personal shoppers and fashion stylists!  We provide a wide range of looks to complement your lifestyle, taking you anywhere you need to go!  You'll be thrilled to find everything you need to create your look from casual, professional, evening, special occasion and travel fashions. 

As your personal shoppers, we have spent countless hours seeking out the very best fashions for you!  We have carefully selected our designers with a specific criteria in mind. For us, it is key having the perfect fit for women of various shapes and sizes, along with the highest quality garments, easy care, wrinkle free and comfortable fabrics.  

Collaborating with Canadian fashion designers remains high on our priority list, as we believe it is important to support our Canadian economy.  We view thousands of garments each season, carefully choosing with you in mind!

Our role as your Personal Stylist allows us to assist in helping create your exciting new image!  We focus on accentuating your shape, while enhancing your individual qualities and unique beautiful features. Body shape is all about proportion, and fashion is all about dressing your proportions to look your very best!

We strongly believe that it doesn’t matter what you read in fashion magazines, there isn’t a cookie cutter approach to personal style. The exciting thing about fashion is that anything goes.  If it makes you look beautiful and feel confident, this is what's most important. Dressing with confidence is more than wearing the latest fashion trends.  It’s about feeling good about what you are wearing.  When we feel good on the outside, we feel good on the inside, which boosts our mood and increases energy!  This is exciting stuff!!!

Our customers say that we make shopping easy!  After all...it's where their clothes are!

Thank you for allowing us the privilege of dressing women like you every day since 1996! It's truly an honour, and we appreciate every minute we have with you in our store.  The friendships, laughter and time spent with our customers is the ultimate gift, and we feel extremely blessed.

We hope that you enjoy your shopping experience at The Dressing Room!

Yours in fashion,

Since discovering The Dressing Room 7 years ago, when I moved to the County, I have come to appreciate Lori and her staff not only for what they do, but also for what they don’t do!

- They do offer classic and contemporary upscale ladies' clothing at reasonable prices.
- They do greet me by name when I walk in, and readily recall conversations we’ve had in the past.
- They do give honest, helpful advice and styling suggestions.
- They do show they appreciate my business, even if I don’t make a purchase on every visit.

And what don’t they do?

- They don’t follow me around while I’m browsing, trying to sell me items that are not of interest.
- They don’t tell me something looks great on me, just to make a sale, when I know it doesn’t suit me at all.
- They don’t make me feel that I’ve wasted their time if I don’t find something to buy.

For all these reasons and more, I will definitely continue to love shopping at The Dressing Room!
