Summer Is On Its Way!

June 14, 2017

It has certainly been a long time coming, but the heat wave we recently experienced brought the shoppers out in droves. It was fun to see the people in full shopping mode and optimistic that the weather was here to stay! We have stocked our Vancouver shop (and all other locations) with a beautiful assortment of fashions and hope you will see something here that might be just the thing to add to your wardrobe!

Toni knocked it out of the park with this little dress! Linen with ribbed knit cotton side panels and front pockets make this a natural choice for a casual day out. Available in fuchsia, denim blue and coral.

This is our own toni T. “Salt & Pepper” collection! It is a lightweight linen weave with pieces that mix and match.

Caroline loved this outfit so much, she is buying it! It is from our private label toni T. as well. A sleeveless tank and matching linen pant. Here, we added a long duster to the ensemble to finish it off!

A sleeveless tank is another option for your look.

The same toni T. pant now paired with an asymmetric contrasting tunic. As you can see, new jewellery has arrived also!

Wide leg linen pant paired with matching top from toni T.

Meet Jane! Jane is a client who loves natural fibres, cotton and linen are her favourites. Jane loved this toni T. striped linen blouse so much she bought it in every colour and volunteered to be our model! So here she is…

Jane: pretty in pink!

And sea foam green!

Jane wanted a little something to cover her shoulders and found this lightweight cotton knit poncho to wear with her new waffle cotton pants.

This little topper is made of lightweight waffle cotton. I liked it so much, I bought it!

This linen blouse from Marina Rinaldi is really fabulous. It buttons down the front but has a peplum back cross seam. It is available in off-white as shown, bright orange and fuchsia. This TILO scarf was too perfect not to add it to the look!

From Marina Rinaldi we have the “Zambia” collection. Lovely linens in natural colours of off-white, black and natural linen. This dress is banded with crisp black linen and boasts pockets for a more casual look.

Linen pants are paired with a complementary striped top edged in matching linen to the pant.

This dress doubles as a duster when left open but comes with a slip for dress wear.

Rachel Roy is a line that brings lots of colour to the store. This latest collection has it all! Caroline is wearing a lovely sundress in pretty shades of blues and pinks. Perfect for a summer garden party or BBQ!

From Rachel Roy, a lovely white blouse paired with a black-and-white patterned pant. It’s business in the front…

Party in the back! We have seen this detail in a number of Rachel Roy pieces and we’re loving it!

This V-neck blouse has peek-a-boo shoulders on a flutter sleeve. Also available in cornflower blue and a floral pattern.

This bomber jacket has been a big hit! It features beautiful embroidery work on the sleeves and back. Just a fun summer piece that can tie in with any colour pant. We chose a deconstructed girlfriend jean.

Love, love, love this jungle print top! Lots of colour and an easy print to wear.

This top was so hot at the beginning of the season, we had to bring it back! There is something about off-the-shoulder that is so feminine!

This is another Rachel Roy dress with a hi-lo feature and tie neck. Printed black on black.

We took some liberty here and paired our new Not Your Daughter’s boyfriend jeans with a sleeveless Rachel Roy top and then layered on a silk Bryn Walker piece to tie it all together!

You saw this piece as a top and here is the dress version! Peek-a-boo flutter sleeves and a V-neck. A great little dress for a wedding!

Our new Eileen Fisher collection features rich colours like this aubergine day dress. Also available in black.

Basic Eileen Fisher tank dress.

The tank dress with a little linen jacket.

Love this button-front dress! Wear it open as a duster with pants and a top.

Right in the middle of our photo shoot, in walks our customer Erika with the exact same outfit that Caroline is modelling! Timing is everything. This open weave knit linen sweater top is also available in papyrus green.

Everyone should own a basic black tank!

That tank was perfect to go under this Joseph Ribkoff burnt velvet poncho style top.

Aubergine tunic over ankle pants.

Such a pretty tunic from Eileen Fisher.

We added this knit sweater to layer the look.

I liked this so much, I bought it! Just a fresh white knit top to wear with all of the Eileen Fisher pants I own!

This papyrus tunic is really lovely when paired with these green tencel pants which have a gathered cuff.

This is our second collection from designer Dressori. The first shipment was a sellout and this is proving to be another winner. Here we have a silk tunic/dress with side pockets. The silk has a rippled texture and I cannot even tell you how stunning this is!

Tunic and pant.

Dressori is a company who works only in silk. Here, we paired a gorgeous printed silk jacket over the tunic piece and added a matching pant.

A simple black silk sleeveless dress from Dressori.

Adding the jacket gives a finished, soft look.

So many looks can be attained with just a few pieces from this collection. Here, we took the silk blouse and added it to the tank dress. It’s all about mixing and matching and getting mileage out of your wardrobe!

Stunning! Printed kimono style button blouse with a silk pant.

As beautiful from the back as it is in the front. They will be eyeing you whether you’re coming or going!

The same silk pant now paired with a V-neck silk tank.

Alternate long sleeve silk top over silk pant.

We saw a style like this earlier this year and it has come back again in the new collection. What makes this top so special is the black silk side panel which drapes to the side (see below).

It is little details like this that set this company apart from others!

Ready for a night out on the town? This Joseph Ribkoff dress has a smart asymmetric overlay with a sequin border. Colour is navy.

This long gown is a toni T. piece! It features beading at the waist and a tie back.
