Silky Silk for a Sumptuous Experience

For December’s launch (and the holiday season), we decided to focus on ultra-lux feel-good loungewear made out of washed silk. And now I’m going to gush about it (while still being wonderfully informative). Now. Put up your hand if you didn’t know washed / washable silk was a thing. I’m 32 and had never heard of such a thing. I always assumed silk was dry clean only, probably due to all the care labels stating as much. If you’re anything like me, you don’t buy garments that need to be dry cleaned, or if you do, once “dirty” enough, they all get shoved in a bag and slowly collect dust and wrinkles until you finally make it to the dry...

Rin's 8 Essentials to Survive 2020

It's November, folks. School is getting stressful, the weather's feeling grim, and we are most certainly deprived of sunlight.  This year has been a hell of a ride. In this new-found world of increased screen time, limited exposure to loved ones, and perpetual pandemic paranoia, the energy is feeling especially heavy. We have to get back to basics. I mean, if you're anything like me, procrastination is currently exhausting you more than the actual tasks. I can't *stress enough* the importance of taking care of ourselves and each other.  I have been looking away into a nostalgic abyss in the hopes that this new-found "normal" would make sense.  In the meantime, let's find our peace of mind by reconnecting with...

Whatcha' Reading November 2020

Hi, I'm Katherine and I love books.For those of you who don't know me, I've taken on the position of copywriter/editor, online merchandiser, and photoshoot stylist (among other things) for Boutique Lustre. After a few years of being a huge fan of Lustre, Yasmine, and her designs, we found a way to work together. FUN FACT: Yasmine made my wedding dress!As I said, I love books. Always have, always will. I feel perfectly at home sitting cozily in a corner reading quietly for hours. (If I'm honest, it's not always "quietly." Sometimes I'm laughing or gasping out loud and occasionally throwing the book across the room if it's particularly upsetting.) Since COVID first hit Montréal in March, my husband and I have basically...

A Snack and a Stain: Halloween Edition

Welcome to "A Snack and a Stain" the culinary edition of the Lustre Boutique newsletter, where Alex walks you through one of her favourite recipes and how to remove any ensuing stains from your beloved garments. Since time has lost all meaning, here's a friendly reminder that tomorrow is Halloween and Movember is just around the corner. Brace yourselves. In typical 2020 fashion, we're going to be doing things a little differently this year. Masks aren't just for costumes (or covering up a botched handlebar mustachio) anymore! You might be tempted to cancel Halloween, but that's so 2019. We've made it through 10 whole months of 2020! We're stronger, more resilient, and desperately in need of a novel excuse to...
