Tucked away in the charming fishing village of Steveston, Violet Hill Boutique is a little treasure trove of adorable and affordable fashion finds. Because I rarely venture outside of Vancouver, Violet Hill's party last Friday evening--hosted in conjunction with blogger Monika Hibbs of The Doctor's Closet--seemed like the perfect occasion to see the store firsthand.
Guests sipped cocktails and champagne and nibbled on dainty macarons while conversing and perusing the store's mix of local and international brands. Lifetime Collective (whose spring collection I blogged about here), Gentle Fawn, J Brand denim and Danish high street label Oxmo were just some of the brands on the racks. Violet Hill also stocks Monika Hibbs's bfrend bracelets and Georgia Heraty's Social Experiment cocktail rings. (I featured the latter in this post.) Bloch ballet flats and Kelsi Dagger sandals rounded out the shoe selection.
With the generous discount and gift card offered by owner Nicola Gillam, I just couldn't say no to a couple of new wardrobe additions: an Oxmo mod shift dress and a turquoise Social Experiment ring.
The next time you stop by Steveston for fish and chips, definitely drop by Violet Hill Boutique!
