If you’re going shopping this weekend…

And if you’re in Vancouver, might I suggest you stop by Barefoot Contessa on Main Street? And might I also suggest you put a little window shopping in your shopping?


I styled the windows of Vancouver’s favourite independent boutique. The theme I chose? Le weekend. (I’m Saturday and Sunday’s biggest fan.)


Packed one window with pretty party dresses, chunky jewelry and disco balls perfect for a Saturday night dance party.


And the other with frilly floral dresses perfect for Sunday afternoon high tea. (Is there a better excuse to get dressed up and get together with your girlfriends? Nope.)


Already one of the dresses sold right out of the window. (They’re ridiculously pretty. I can’t take credit.)


Thank you, Barefoot Contessa, for the invitation. I had a blast! And I can’t wait to see how the other Vancouver bloggers decorate the windows.

P.S. If you’re tweeting this weekend, might I suggest you follow The Anthology?

    what a cool idea – kudos to barefoot contessa and to you for a great partnership. great exposure for both and such a fun creative project. hope you get to do more of these – maybe for some vintage shops around town since they always look so dodgey.

    hows’ cali?

    btw you going to york house market this yr?

    This just reminded me of how I haven’t been in that store in ages.
