Let me introduce you to my new friend, Bicyclette Boutique on Queen Street.
I met the darling owner Paige on Twitter and after browsing the site, I knew we would get along. The shop is filled with pretty things, vintage, white space, foreign style, mirrors and heaps of shiny things. Paige opened the shop in March, although she’s had two pop-up shops and an online presence for a while.
It’s totally my kind of shop. Look at all these things. I wish I had my closet organized like a store. Paige calls it “urban meets fairytale“. See, so me. *sprinkles glitter*
I was trying on outfits for the Fashion Connect panel: 265 people have tickets. Cripes.
The night is about fashion & technology so, the other day I called out on Twitter to see if someone wanted to outfit me for the night. That’s how Paige & I met. Her twitter is @shopbicyclette. I love meeting people who love what they do. We had a great chat today. Hi Paige!
She was at the Blog Stars talk I did last year with Raymi, Sean & Carly. Nice to know she’s had an eye on my blog. I heard about her pop up shop last summer via Twitter 😉 How great is the internet? Pretty awesome great.
The shop had a steady flow of girls in & out while I was there. Then, who walked in the door? Only the lovely Carla…who I see EVERYWHERE! I’m gonna start her Jukari & dance classes the week after next at King West Fitness. I really need to get my bike fixed before then.
Hehe Bicyclette Boutique, bike talk, no relation corelation. Alliteration. Love.
Carla, you are cute. Her friend is the girlfriend of my other friend Ish. Small world yo.
Love the paper mache mannequin heads. I need to pick up one of these funky head things when I go back next.
This dress reminds me of Peaches & Cream Barbie, one day I will have one like it. So pretty.
I could have stayed in there all day trying on dresses, only champagne & friends could have made it better. (Will talk to Paige about that. Shopping party anyone?) BTW, love the panorama shots I can take with the Olympus XZ. Very impressive point & shoot cam.
After a bunch of dresses, I decided on this little black number (Sole Mio – Italy) & denim-ish jacket (covet – Montreal). “Covet incorporates organic and sustainable fibers while remaining true to the details and styling of a contemporary fashion brand.” @covettweets. I love when people tweet, when brands tweet. Meet & tweet.
In other news, I have been walking all over the city now that it’s gotten a tiny warmer. A few hours a week, paired with some type of other regular workout has me feeling pretty in shape. I’m ready for summer. I’m vow to work from interesting places and catch rays in the grass at the park.
