• One Year Anniversary Celebration!

    We're so excited to say that it's been one year since we first opened! To celebrate, we'd love to have you to our Customer Appreciation party on Friday May 9th. Just like our seasonal shopping parties we'll have treats, tunes and drinks. You can also expect some special deals and discounts. The party will also mark the launch of our spring collection...and believe me there are some goodies to be had! 

    So invite your girlfriends and get your weekend started off right! There's also an Art Crawl that night so stop by on your way and say hi. And thanks for making it a year to remember. Love y'all!

  • Desert Field Trip

    It's been a busy few months since opening the shop and I'm very excited to be treating myself to a little vacation next week! The past three years I've gone to Arizona every fall and I'm so excited to go again.
    The majority of my favourite vintage pieces have come from these trips and you may have even seen or purchased some of these items in the shop! My best finds to date; a Tucson-area yearbook from the 60's, a cheerleaders megaphone (which I had to bring as my carry-on...I got some interesting looks), and one women's collection of bathing suits from the 50's.
    I love the desert and all the mysticism that goes with it. I'm planning on doing as much vintage hunting as physically possible, a fashion shoot for the shop and brainstorming for the store's fall season. Stay tuned for updates on Instagram! We'll be open regular hours and Trish will be manning the shop while I'm gone, so stop in and say hi to her!
    Check out some shots I did a few years ago in Tubac, AZ and you may even spot some familiar items!
  • bathing beauty

    In the shop we're ignoring this gloomy weather in favour of dreaming up our perfect summer! Plans are being made for the summer launch, happening Friday June 21st (summer solstice!). We're getting our collection of swimwear in order, with both vintage one-pieces and vintage-inspired two pieces to be unveiled in just a few weeks time! You can also look forward to a summer lookbook video that will showcase the swimwear and some key summer looks. Our inspiration for Summer 2013 is Saint-Tropez. Think beach wear, with hints of the classic french stripes, Big floppy hats and movie-star sunglasses, the perfect high-waisted bikinis and flirty short-shorts. Check out our inspiration board below, channel your inner Brigitte Bardot and get excited!
