Wanda June brought in some more fantastic tunics and dresses that are perfect for any season! She makes them so they're easy to layer or wear as they are in comfy fabrics with cool appliques. They range in sizes from XSmall to XXLarge. And they also coordinate perfectly with a new line I'm now carrying of women's clothing by local designer, Jaclyn Marquis of Arbutus Clothing. This outfit shows a Wanda June cropped top along with one of Jaclyn's awesome wrap skirts. Jaclyn uses all recycled fabrics that have a lot of structure making for really sharp lines in her clothing which I'm really digging.
She's also got some beautiful reversible lace up tank tops in the most gorgeous fabrics as well as great high waisted super wide leg pants. She's working on more of the wrap skirts to bring to the store which I can't wait to see. I'm thrilled to be carrying her growing line of eco-clothing! Come check them out today!

Well, I've sold out of my 'Practice Random Acts of Awesome' tshirts but have made up a few with Photoshop and my heat press and they turned out.... well.. AWESOME!
And I whipped up some new switch plates this week, too!
And today Trevor of U.S.E.D. Seat Belt bags brought me in some great new bags!
Most of them are nice big messenger/laptop style, perfect for lugging books and whatever else you need to keep on hand.
Don't forget it's Louis Riel Day on Monday & Sew Dandee is the place to get your Louis pride items! From tshirts & dish towels to pins and magnets!
You can get it all here! Just be sure to come over the weekend since we'll be close on Monday for the holiday.

I just had to share this great class being taught at The Costume Museum of Canada. It sounds like an amazing opportunity to learn the long lost craft of millinery! Also known as hat making! Check it out! And check out the Costume Museum while you're at it! It's an amazing place that needs and deserves all the support we can give it!

Local seamstress and designer, Gracious Designs, dropped off a few more pieces today including more super wallets, a beautiful reworked dress and the AWESOMEST denim skirt! She used the most comfy stretch dark denim and the stitching details along with the buttons are beyond cute! And you can expect to find these in a FULL range of sizes from 2 to 18! Stay tuned to see when they're all in stock. As soon as I get more I plan on snaging one for myself! I'm in LOOOOVE!

Check out these super awesome new wallets that came in today! They're made by Kristy of Dear Sukie in T.O. out of cool print paper and vinyl.
The accordian wallet is great for keeping the bare necessities on hand and they fit perfectly in your back pocket.
It was tough picking out the paper designs since she's got such a great collection. I hope you like the ones I picked!
