Window by CFON





Fashion bloggers love local boutiques and they're showing us some love back! A few Vancouver bloggers including myself were invited to take part in styling the windows at the oh-so-lovely store Barefoot Contessa. The store proudly supports local designers and has an abundance of feminine jackets, pretty frocks, and vintage-inspired jewelry. If you're a girly-girl like me, you'll find it difficult to walk out empty handed.





Following the fabulous styling work by Kelsey (The Anthology), Nicole (Le Mode du Jour), and Melissa (Miss Melissa), my beautiful fellow blogger Anya (I'm the It Girl) and I had the pleasure of showcasing our personal style at the Main Street location this week.





The theme I went with was Tea-party for a real lady. From tweed jackets to laced mini's, she is elegant for every occasion. Not only is she a classy lady who dresses the part, but a fun fem who's not afraid to wear mini-top hats and flowers in her hair. My window is on display until Wednesday, Oct 27th. I'd love for you to check it out in person if you're in the area. Don't forget to give a shout out to Anya when you spot the adorable it-girl buttons on her outfits!

Oh wow, This is such a cute idea!!! I wish we had something like this in Toronto. As far as I know only 1 blogger got an opportunity like this. She got to have a BIG window display at Holt Renfrew.
You're window looks super cute!

This is a fantastic idea for local business and bloggers combined. Almost like an art installation meets live art exhibit. I will have to let my local boutiques know about this. Also, you get to put your name on the window :)

I absolutely LOVE your window displays! It's all my favourite things in one place...tea, girly clothing...

Is that pair of shoes in the first shot yours? I think I have the same pair somewhere in the recesses of my closet...from Nine West, right?
