BeFunky Collage

When you try one of their pieces on, you’ll instantly fall in love with the fit and the quality, so stop by the shop and pick one up while they’re fresh – you know they won’t last long!



Heatwave Cool

It’s easy to lose track of fashion trends when the temperature rises well above our comfort level. With a heatwave often comes the desire to strip down to the bare basics and wear simple, loose clothing; but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear items that make you look just as good as you feel.

During a heatwave we recommend gravitating towards easy, flowy dresses, that give a little breathing room. Not only will you look “heatwave cool” but you’ll feel it too; because how else can you stay cool while having a picnic in the park or roaming the city streets in 30-degree weather?!

Currently on sale at VAM is an assortment of light and breezy dresses perfect for any occasion – whether you’re looking to dress up or down. (Editor’s note: you can snag a few of these items at 50% off this weekend only!)
See you at the shop shortly! – VAM xo

Creme de la Creme

While a healthy and glowing complexion has as much to do with what you put in your body, there’s nothing like some all-natural paraben-free products to put on your body to help with the process. 
Here at VAM, we’ve started carrying Archipelago Botanicals, a line of fragrant and gentle skin products made from all natural ingredients and filled with antioxidants to keep your skin looking youthful and glowing. 
In the shop we have a selection of hand creams, (Coconut, Oat Milk and Soy – $18) perfect to keep in your bag to battle dry hands when the AC in the office is a bit too much. We are also carrying the scrubs, to exfoliate and keep your skin glowing (Oat sugar scrub, Soy sugar scrub – $19). To top it all off we have two variations of the body butter, that OK! Magazine called a “milkshake for your legs!” (Oat and Soy – $19)
So come in and try some Archipelago Botanicals, your skin will thank you. 

Hintonburg Hap!!

Of all the ‘hoods in Ottawa, Hintonburg has to be our favourite. Okay, I’ll admit we are a bit biased, but you can’t deny the appeal of Hintonburg. With all the shops, galleries and cafes there is no doubt that Hintonburg is a happening place.  (If you haven’t noticed, I’m going for the “saying Hintonburg the most times in one blog post” prize.)

Starting this weekend and for nine days after, Hintonburg will be happening in an official sense. Starting on Saturday, June 21 to Sunday, June 29, there will be events galore in the ‘hood of Hintonburg.

We’re celebrating with a trunk show featuring local scarf wunderkind, Krista Norris and the always amazing Bernice & Barclay on June 22 so make sure you stop by!!

Other events include a workshop with the queen of positive thinking, Kate Durie will be down the street from us at Twiss and Webber along with art exhibits at Cube Gallery, Cyclelogik and on bus shelters along Wellington. Our friend Dwayne Brown and his LoveOttawa project will be showcasing a special LoveHintonburg night at MINT Hair Salon and Peter Joynt will be performing on June 21 in Somerset Square!
