Oliver & Lilly's Celebrates Their Two-Year Anniversary



A hot summer's day, stylish guests, and a store full of cute covetable finds...what more could you ask for at the Oliver & Lilly's two-year anniversary party? Last Thursday I had the privilege of attending the store's celebration along with other stylish fashion bloggers, guests, and well-wishers. It was my first time visiting this gem of a shop on South Granville and West 13th Avenue, and I definitely liked what I saw: lots of on-trend pieces with quirky feminine charm merchandised alongside vintage objects to create an atmosphere of whimsy and fun.

Some of the items that caught my eye: a black ruffly chiffon blouse with a balloon print, skinny cargo pants, and a white tiered ruffle dress.


I love the vintage mirror and accordion in this wall installation. The wooden chair with orange plates stacked on top of it adds a nice colourful touch.


One of the highlights of the party was the refreshment and "build your own sundae" bar. Vodka lemonade anyone? Or chocolate wafers, mini marshmallows, and gummy bears to go with your ice cream?




Oh, and the other highlight: Running into lots of familiar faces and catching up with them, including Carolina, Ace, Erin, Niki, and Nicole.

Congratulations to Oliver & Lilly's owner Leighann! Thanks for hosting such a great party. (P.S. I might have to come back for the black ruffled blouse.)

  5. I loved looking at all the twitpics from that group of the sundae bar! Mmmm

    And that tiered ruffle dress is the cutest thing. If I wasn't an accident waiting to happen when it comes to spilling, I'd totally pick that on up.
