Holly Boutique in Gastown

As you Facebook friends know I was defeated by the Aritzia warehouse lineup yesterday.

It went around and around!

Line up for Aritzia warehouse sale inside Canada Place Convention centre

I could have taken a better photo, but did not want to feel like a creeper. Good to see some dudes in the line up though.

Feeling dejected, there was little that could coax me out of hiding from the newest show I was watching and my egg white omelet.

But a phone call from my hunnie in need, I was off.

He needed a button for his gorgeous grey suit for today and he was not able to get to the store in time.

The button mission was alas successful. Even though I wasn't able to find the exact match, I think the options I ended up with will do just fine.

Buttons from Button Button, Code of Arms buttons, Silver Buttons, Vintage Buttons

I think the different top button adds such an edge!! He may even start a trend!

Since I'm out, might as well do a detour.

As luck would have to, down the street from Button Button is Holly.

This gorgeous gem of a boutique in Gastown.

Owned by a lovely lady of the same name I have admired this store for some time now. From the Yelp reviews and testimonial from a friend, I just had to go in!

This would be a lovely addition to the list of stores I frequent.

Lucky for me today, Holly herself was at the store. With her permission, I was able to get some photos of the interior.

I love the colours she chose for her store and the fresh and fitting logo.

These are some of the brands she carry.

The racks are well organized.

I was especially drawn to her jewelry collection.

The trip was fruitful and I did return home with some goodies.

Even the shopping bag is adorable!

I got two items.

The first is this adorable Charlotte Ronson blush crop top with embellished reverse shoulder pad detail.

As well as this amazing Plastic Island lace back little black dress.

The top though, is really what I am super excited about.

I always loved clothing that blended two opposite elements together in one piece of clothing.

The material of this top is soft and girly and feminine. While the black shoulder pads adds a dash of edge! I knew exactly what to style this with.

Since this post is long enough, I will share the style post on Tuesday.

Here is a sneak peak.

Remember those Embellished fishnet leggings from GoJane I got? Well, they make an appearance, too.
