It may be Fall 17’ but this season’s chicest accessory is something you wear proudly every day: your complexion darling! While you’re layering on the best collections of the season, don’t forget to add a few layers of decadent moisture to that beautiful face of yours.
Shopping for beauty products can be totally overwhelming, so I’ve scoured the ends of the Earth (okay, California) to bring the best in beauty to my boutique for those looking to Bree themselves of drugstore skincare.
These 3 products will have your face looking as fresh as your new A.L.C. shearling this fall:
Add a little magic to your life. I’ve noticed a change in the overall tone and texture of my skin since inviting this powerful potion into my daily routine! I personally swear by this serum and use this day and night. For nighttime use I recommend 4-5 drops on my clean skin after exfoliating with JR Enzyme Exfoliator. First thing in the morning I use a couple drops on my skin under my makeup to give me a glow throughout the day.
_ I also use a couple drops under my makeup if I am going out at night and want that fab glow in tow! If you buy nothing this season, buy this.
This is hands-down the best exfoliator I have ever used.
I recommend applying it on damp skin and massaging gently and then leaving it on as a mask for up to 40 minutes. It is extremely powerful when used in combination with… you guessed it! Vintner's Daughter.
Fall, Winter, Spring, one thing is certain. Skincare never goes out of style.
As we tumble towards fall, our favourite season of all, I want to share my top picks for what is shaping up to be the most fabulous fashion we’ve seen in years. Don’t let the smokey skies fool you, we’ll all be seeing clearly this September.
The Dynamite Duo are Back in Action
It’s no longer a full house at Elizabeth & James with the main designers making way for the co-owners of the brand to take the wheel: Mary-Kate and Ashley.
These twinning beauties placed themselves in the driver’s seat by designing this collection which is looking dangerously like The Row (in a good way). Not to mention their fall sampling is accompanied by more reasonable price tags.
As if you weren’t hooked already, the colour palette is soft and luxurious. We’ll start the cue early for this release!
Falling Hard for A.L.C.
All aboard A.L.C.
Every year there’s just one collection that stops me (and my heels) in their tracks. This year it was hands-down A.L.C.
These hips don't lie.
They put this collection best themselves: “A collection of elevated staples and luxe statement pieces.” This is what dreams are made of ladies!
Bree fall into it A.L.C. this September.
If I could cut through the white noise of trends this fall and just choose two they would be:
1. Shearling, shearling, shearling, darlings. These coats are an absolute must-have for this season. Reconnect with your inner aviator and prepare for your wardrobe to reach new heights.
_ 2. Leopard print this season is SPOT-ON. This is a giant trend for fall and it is simply fabulous. Use it as an accent or just jump right in.
Okay, maybe not quite, but we're slowly getting there and we can't deny the fact that Spring Break is just around the corner! Whether you have some sort of tropical destination in mind, or you're staying on the west coast, our newly stocked merchandise screams SPRING... and we're lovin' it.
From bomber jackets, to bold stripes, to frayed denim and more... we have all your favourite Spring 17' trends in store!
The only thing that's trouble about this look is the amount of attention you're going to get! This slogan back print bomber jacket is giving us ALL the feels. Scallop Silk Boyfriend Shirt by Jenni Kayne and 'Double Trouble' Roadie Bomber by R13. Shop the look here.
Slip into something comfortable and spend a day at the beach. We are loving this Mar Ym Sol vacation bag that is guaranteed to hold all of your beach or travel necessities (cough, photo opt moment, cough!).
We're seeing a glorious combination here and it includes some of our favourites: Tibi, Ariel Gordon Jewelry, Amber Sceats and R13. Shop the look here.
Bold stripes and satin mules... does it get better? Our Ronny Satin Tie Mule will add a romantic and feminine finish to any outfit and help elevate your look while going from day-to-night.
Cozy up to something soft for those cool, brisk evenings by the water. You can't go wrong with this adorable R13 polka dot cardigan that pairs perfectly with trousers or a dress.
Tie that knot up and let your hair down. Front-tie shirts and shirt dresses are making a big statement this Spring season and we are no exception! Black and white both available.
'Athleisure Wear' is a real thing and this two piece by The Great reminds us of just that. Comfortable and luxurious... but made for travel and/or casual settings - how could you not?
These slouchy ALC Drop Trousers are exactly what you need (on vacation or off). We're always up for a sophisticated, yet relaxed, silhouette.
Pleats are going nowhere this 2017 as they continue to make bigger and badder statements. Malene Birger's 'Miqiau' Pleated Long Skirt will bring elegance to any outfit - whether you pair it with a plain tee or button-up shirt. Bonus: no need to iron these royal blue pleats!
We're feeling major Sartorial vibes with this Joseph dress and tee. Talk about minimal chic!
Silk + lace will always have our hearts. This dress by Jenni Kayne is the perfect choice for that romantic getaway. Hugging all the right places, you will move with ease and comfort, and feel nothing but soft, luxurious material against your skin. Bon voyage!
Show off those collar bones in Current Elliot's Embroidery Smocked Tee. Comfortable and feminine, the embroidered cotton will pair nicely with jeans or shorts.
Jason Wu has us in (deep-red) love. This perfect concoction of pleats and floral print has us begging for sunshine! Shop the look here.
For the first time ever, we will be hosting a Boxing Day clearance sale - *that will continue throughout the entire week* - to end all clearance sales! Shop online or at our Vancouver store located at 3680 W 4th Ave (side note: We are never open on Mondays so this will definitely be worth the wake up!).
Clients will receive up to 80 per cent off accessories, clothing, and of course, SHOES! Amazing designer pieces at insane prices. Move over Christmas, the Bree Boxing Day Sale is the new black!
Ladies, kick those heels up and get ready for a day of designer sale fun!
Christmas and New Years is just around the corner and we want to celebrate. It's time to announce that new jackets, dresses, tops and bottoms are in and they scream HOLIDAY! Get the latest and shop our new arrivals here!
PS. If you haven't already heard, we're offering 30% off on select Fall pieces in-store and online. Browse a few of our Fall and pre-holiday items below and treat yourself to something sparkly (or not!).
Add a little bit of Christmas cheer to your wardrobe. This RtA dress proves to us that a little sparkle CAN go a long way! And if you want to bring it down a notch, pair it with our IRO leather jacket for an extra-edgy look. No outfit is complete without our fabulous No. 21 shoes.
Maximize the concept of "casual-chic" with a Mother denim pullover paired with our Tibi blush skirt. Toss in our snowy-white Roseanna lace sweater (which also happens to be a part of our sale!) and fa-la-la-la-la, your look is complete!
This is what it feels like to hit the jackpot. Fitted midi skirts are all the rage and there's nothing better than a gold-mustard item or two to give it the accent it needs. Our Camilla & Marc 'Primula' Cami and No. 21 shoes will take you from day to night.... and because RtA is anything but ordinary, so will their Black Serge Cashmere Cardigan.
