It's an opportunity for a guest blogger to tell us about their city. Coming from Seattle I know that their are a lot of misconceptions, we're not as granola and grunge as some people may think. Times have changed and here's a chance for us to take notice.
In this First Edition, the Lovely and Stylish Niki of A Haute Mess will tell you about the misconceptions, the designers you should take note of and the boutique you should stop at if you're ever in Vancouver.
I thought this would be a perfect one to start with since the Olympics are going to be there and some of you maybe interested about how fashionable Vancouver really is!!
Fashion blogging for sure. It seems like I'm discovering new Vancouver blogs all the time. It's awesome!
There are so many beautiful boutiques here and emerging design talent. My favourite local designers are :
1.Jason Matlo - I wish I had a closet full of his cocktail dresses! They're so easy to wear.
2. Nicole Bridger - I really appreciate how her entire collection is made of sustainable materials, and she's a perfect example of how to do Eco-fashion. Also her basics are a must-have.
A great Eco-boutique to check out here is Body Politic - it's sustainable from the refurbished antiques inside to every item of clothing carried there. The great thing about this store is it's proof that you don't need to sacrifice fashion to go green. There are a ton of other great stores here, but without making a huge list I'll just say that Gastown and Main St. are awesome for boutique shopping.
