You may have begun to notice that I’m featuring more local artists, designers, shops and restaurants on this website than before.
Since there were travel restrictions for a long while, I looked closer to home and began to pay more attention to artists within my own circles, city and surroundings. And let me tell you – we do not lack here in British Columbia for local talent in plenty of areas. And so it is with great pleasure that I share another chic boutique owned by a local designer I recently met by the name of Anna Kosturova. Anna’s gorgeous pop-up shop is located in Gastown, Vancouver where she sells her ethically made and sustainable designs of the most exquisite crochet clothing. Shown here in photos taken by me.
The vibe in the shop is pure Summer at it’s absolute finest. And if crochet isn’t your thing, there’s enough locally made eye candy inside to attract any fashionista worth his/her salt. If you’re wondering where this phrase originated (of course you are!) the saying “worth its salt” originated with the ancient Romans, who valued salt highly. A true fashionista values genuine “style” – even if it’s not really their own style so to speak. Speaking of which….
Nap Lovers Candles by Pourlair, Sandals & Flip Flops by Malvados, Photographic Prints by Rebecca Amber, Hard Kombucha sign by Plenty…and plenty more like sunglasses, handbags, hats, bikinis….it’s possible I may have missed some things…there’s a lot to look at.
