It’s hard to believe that the shop is already 6 years old! So much has happened in the lifetime of this small business, but one thing that remains consistent is the support and encouragement of our loyal customers. As an expression of thanks on our birthday, we’re having a storewide sale. Everything will be 20% OFF** this FRIDAY, SATURDAY and SUNDAY (Oct. 13, 14, 15) in store only.
We’d love for you to come by, say hello, and maybe pick up a little something for yourself at a discount. We hope to see you there, and thanks again for 6 great years!

We love the look of French fashion label, Harris Wilson. It’s been around for over 40 years for good reason – top quality fabrics combined with timeless, wearable, comfortable shapes that don’t age. Even though the Spring/Summer collection is filled with dresses, everything is true to the easy, tomboy vibe of the brand. Take a peek at some of our favourite picks – more to see in the shop!
We love a good jumpsuit, and the fashion trend that’s been riding high the last few years is showing no sign of slowing down. We’ve got a ton of options in body-loving linens and cottons, and they’re good for all occasions. Whether you’re looking for something for the beach, a night on the town, or the office, we think you’ll be able to find one that’s just right. Have a peek at what’s in store. We have some styles in multiple colours (see below) so you have more choices in your favourite shape. If you have questions about fit, sizes, and pricing please email us firstname.lastname@example.org or call 604-709-9034, or better yet – come in person!
