This Wednesday from 6:30 to 9pm, join Vancouver's eco-fashion industry insiders as they congregate at body politic (208 E. 12th Ave., near Main Street) for Eco Shops For A Cause. This one-night only event promises "organic eats, treats, and a fun night of shopping for a cause with proceeds to benefit the David Suzuki Foundation." The evening also marks the launch of the new Dutzi Designs handbag collection. To attend, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every $200 purchase earns you an entry in a draw for a $500 prize pack. Want another way to win a prize? You can win a makeover sponsored by Aveda and body politic by entering Granville Mag's contest here.
For the little girl in all of us, local designer Dace has commissioned artist Dallas Shaw to create free downloadable paper doll PDFs. Download the dolls--and their Dace outfits--and have fun mixing and matching! Keep checking back for new doll clothes too.
From now until August 31st, enjoy 70% off spring/summer sale merchandise at Wear Else. An insider source tells me that most of the sale merchandise is consolidated at their W. 4th Ave. location, but there is some stock available at the Oakridge and Park Royal locations as well. That's not all: Print off this post, bring it into the store, and you'll receive an additional 30% off the last ticketed price of sale items. That means you could save up to 80% total. Happy shopping!
