Dresses for Any Occasion

Wedding season is in full bloom and there’s nothing worse than having nothing to wear. Whether your cousin is having a formal church wedding, or your BFF is celebrating with a casual backyard garden wedding, we’ve got the dress for you.

 

v12

The BB Dakota Joss Dress meets the criteria for any wedding or event. Flirty without showing too much skin, and the black and white floral adds an extra edge to the sweet summery yellow.

 

v13And look how it flows!

 

v10

This is the dress you’ll be wearing around the grandparents without feeling too old school. The BB Dakota Elissa Dress has an updated crochet stitch and a neckline that resembles the pom pom trend adds a modern touch to a classic look.

 

v3v6

The BB Dakota Willow Dress is the perfect destination wedding dress. Its’ length will add an extra touch of elegance, while its’ back will leave you cool when the humidity is high. The unique print strays from the bright colours and tropical prints so you don’t feel like a cliché .

 

v5

The BB Dakota Haleigh Dress is one of our absolute favourites this season. Its’ sweet embroidery details contrast with a plunging neckline. Perfect for those outdoor weddings that leave you dancing in the moonlight.

 

v2

The Heartloom Farah Dress is perfect for any occasion. The details of this dress are perfect: the pleating throughout, the bold floral print, and the chevron lace accents.

 

So, you can stop stressing out about what to wear to your next event.

We’ve got you covered.

Free People has blessed us with the PERFECT dip dye cut off shorts and if you like the simplicity of rompers, the Grow Up jumper by RVCA is the answer to your prayers – more grown up than similar rompers, super comfy, and POCKETS! Need we say more?

We also started carrying denim from RVCA. These boyfriend jeans will pair great with your favourite band tee or a cute crop top (like the Bruxon above). If you’re looking for a little crochet we’ve got that too! This adorable dress from Bellfield will transition you from a day at the festival to an evening on the patio.

RVCA also has these amazing lyocell shorts (with elastic!). They’ve got a cool vintage gym short vibe to them and will keep you comfy all day long. Tofino Towel Co.‘s signature round towels aren’t just for the beach. Lounge on them between sets with your best girlfriends, or wrap yourself up in one when the sun sets and the night gets cooler. Either way it’s on the top of our festival essentials list.

 

Whatever you’re looking for to complete your look this year, we’re sure you’ll find it at viens avec moi.

Practicing the ‘ALOHA’ Way of Life with Tofino Towel Co.

tofino

We’re so excited to be carrying Vancouver-based Tofino Towel Co. this summer! A company that emulates Mother Nature, encouraging its’ customers to “consciously slow down, be present in the moment and enjoy the simple pleasures of life”.

These towels were designed thoughtfully with their iconic large round shape to put an end to the constant adjusting and shaking of beach towels so you can continue enjoying the outdoors without any distractions.

Tofino Towel Co. has adopted what they call the “1% model”. This means donating 1% of all profits to local non-profits, 1% of all product to people in need, and 1% of its’ employees time to the protection and enjoyment of the West Coast. Their current partnership is with Strawberry Isle Research Society, a group of dedicated naturalists living and working on the waters of Vancouver Island conducting research and monitoring our marine ecosystems.

You can find Tofino Towel Co. in store at 1338 Wellington Street West, or online.
