Hey hey!

I recently came across these cool new stockings from another friends blog that I wanted to share with you. I love how artistic they look and how unique the patterns are. You can have your own for only $28. Check out the website to shop online.

(212) Fall/Winter Preivew

Word blockandstrut followers!

So I’m bringing you coverage of (212) Boutique’s fall runway this week! I got invited to go to the event through working at LYNNsteven in Gastown. They decided to show their fall collection in season so you could get the looks hot off the runway. The event was held at Montauk Sofa on Abbot St.  The venue was buzzing with an attractive crowd of Vancouver’s local designers, fashion bloggers and industry people. Delicious cocktails were flowing and funky beats were streaming to get the energy level up for the big show.

This collection was about  solid colours, simple cuts, and form fitting silhouettes. It was about elegance with a youthful flare of layering. The models painted the runway with silky blacks, winter grays, gem stone purples, emerald greens, and splashes of cobalt blue.

Here are some pictures of the great looks from (212). Enjoy!

Week 2 – Strathcona

Welcome to Strathcona, where the fashion conscious kids come out to play.

I make my way out to this neighbourhood mostly to visit friends and people watch on the stoop. This hood is made up of trend setters galore. Whether the fashionistas are wearing designer or vintage, they always find a way to stand out in a crowd.

Cruising in the streets of Strathcona you’ll be sure to find several bicycles, BBQ’s and guitars. Come to the area and meet your fellow fashion savvy friends and hang out at the nearest block party.

When you are walking to Strathcona be sure you pop into Charlie and Lee Boutique, located on 233 Union St – –  This shop is home to many unique designers creating quality clothing for men and women.

Peace out friends, xo Dewy
