So Tuesday was my 22nd birthday and I spent the day doing everything I love with the one person whose closest to me…my mum! And of course you can imagine when two women are out on the town what they end up doing…SHOPPING!! Even though I literally have like pennies to my name, I still did some serious swiping of my plastic lol, but it was totally worth it. And one little gem that I came across was in our very own Gastown district. I had walked past this store several times to and from work but had never had the time to take a look inside. Their window displays were also filled with beautiful clothing so Tuesday was the day when I finally stepped through that glass door. And thank god I did! Ended up walking out with a few bags between the two of us, but the items offered in this store are truly once in a lifetime pieces that are ageless and for a decent price! Can’t get much better than that.
This store features local Canadian designers and items from New York city too. 212 has two locations at the moment but I can guarantee that you will be seeing this boutique popping up in more major cities across the world. They even have the most gorgeous handmade shoes shipped all the way from Denmark, so if you aren’t in the mood for any purchasing just to check out this stores assortment of goodies is good enough too!
