Bling and more Bling

Posted on August 02, 2019

Very close to us here on the west coast of Canada is a lovely company called Myka Designs.  They are a husband and wife team of jewelry designers who use Austrian Swarovski Crystals to make some of the beautiful jewelry that we bring into our shop.  Bracelets, earrings and necklaces sparkle from within our jewelry case, begging to be tried on. 

Here are some of photos of their beautiful things:

A Bit of Bling

Posted on July 27, 2019

A woman walked into our shop in ordinary faded jeans and a white tee. 

Definitely casual attire BUT she had pared it with a stylish necklace and she looked fabulous!  How does one little piece of jewelry change ordinary to extra-ordinary?  Is it just because it looks like we made an effort or do some things just stand out?

Summer weight cotton pjs and robes

Posted on July 12, 2019

One of the first companies we carried when we opened our shop was Powell Craft, from England.  We brought in a nostalgic line of classic white cotton nighties with beautiful detailing like pearl embroidery and lace edging in an absolutely incredible array of styles.  These nighties have been a staple of our shop ever since.

This year, Powell Craft brought in a colorful array of summer weight nightwear from paisley to floral.  Soft brushed cotton, lightweight enough to wear all through the hottest day of summer and so pretty, too.

We now stock the nightshirts, pjs and robes in a huge array of colors and patterns. 

Isn't it lovely when classic can encompass such a beautiful range of styles?
