Gastown Shop Hop 2013

It's that time again! Tomorrow night will be a night of food, shopping and champagne. The charming hub of trendy night life, Gastown, turns into a "night market" of sorts with participating vendors extending their shop hours and providing patrons with hors d' oeuvres and bubbly. Not the mention my favourite things, special deals and discounts!

I Dream in Chiffon

You are Invited to a Spring Garden Party. Browse the Wild Flowers Look on Shopbop!

I actually can't recall a day when my outfit is chiffonless.

Or maybe that is just my default name to all that is sheer and light and fabulous.

Today's funtastic Friday outfit is oh so creamy and dreamy.

All pieces are recent acquisitions, from local boutiques, to happenstance to adventures abroad. Everything comes together to make this flirty girly outfit happen.

The days leading up to this post, the pieces have been revealed on facebook and my instagram accounts.

Boring work outfit.

The cute purse.

Since I have the purse up, I will talk about the purse first.

From my previous post you guys probably already know that I got this purse on impulse while on my way to the photo shoot destination. But I am so glad I got it, it really completes the outfit.

Especially one with so much cute details.

The Fair, Starfish and Rose moving sale

Happy Friday!

Two of my favourite shops for unique vintage items are relocating from their current location.

This is their last month. I hope they stay close in the same neighbourhood. Right now, they are only steps away.
The Fair is located at 415 Abbott Street.

Starfish and Vintage Collective is located at 419 Abbott Street.

One good thing about the fact they are moving?! MOVING SALE!

They had their big event last night. But, they will continue to have mark downs for the rest of the days.
