4 fab designer lines, a Mary Kay makeover and mini cupcakes?? What else can a girl ask for on a chilly November weekend? It was the weekend of the Holiday Pop-up Boutique hosted by Sally Han of Psalms 91:1 Accessories.
What is a pop-up boutique you ask? It’s a spur-of-the-moment, spontaneous way to offer up a one-stop shopping experience to shopping divas. It’s a collaboration between some pretty fab designers in the fashion industry showcasing uber-chic merchandise and it was just in time for the Christmas season! For a girl like me… it’s absolute heaven.
The Holiday Pop-up Boutique was held at The Loft down by the Distillery District and featured an amazing line-up of leather bags (442 McAdam), clothing (Aime, Brazen Hussy), jewellery (Psalms 91:1 Accessories) and makeovers (Mary Kay)! There were also delish mini-cupcakes from prettysweet (seriously, to die for!) and a little bit of bubbly to wash it all down in style! Along the way, I got to meet some pretty amazing women and entrepreneurs who really made a lasting impression! To top it all off, a percentage of all proceeds from sales over the weekend was donated to Dr. Roz’s Healing Place.
I did my part and picked up some choice items that I couldn’t resist! Who am I kidding? The only way I would be able to NOT buy anything is if I incinerated by wallet into oblivion and glued my eyes shut so I wouldn’t be able to see all the pretty things…. and even then, I’m sure I’d figure out a way to feel the luxurious pieces and barter for goods with anything I had on my person at that moment! Oh shopping gods… why doth thou tempt me?!
My new ultra-fave leather bag designer… 442 McAdam. Sarah’s bags are much like the cupcakes mentioned above… to die for. The familiar smell of leather just soothes the soul. I had to pick up one of her handbags… keep an eye out, I will be blogging about it later! Beautiful, rich leathers and suedes, amazing detail, what else could you ask for?!
This is Sarah… smart woman who was pre-med and then followed her dream and passion headfirst into the fashion industry… brilliant and hilarious to boot!
These mini cupcakes by prettysweet were fantastic! Yummy and moist… can’t ask for a better combination.
I lurrve Sally’s jewellery line, Psalms 91:1 Accessories. In fact, I had to stop myself from buying up entire collections because it is Christmas after all, and I do need to save some money to shop for gifts for other people!
Sally and I will be setting up a shoot sometime in the future so keep an ear to the ground on that one!
Meet the sexy and savvy sisters behind the Brazen Hussy fashion line! Kathleen and Michele were amazing to talk to and their line of women’s clothing is bold and… well, brazen!
Absolutely love the vintage feel around Sally’s loft. She did an amazing job with the decor.
The textures and feeling of the women’s clothing line Aime is just amazing! Think, the comfort of yoga wear in pretty chic business wear! Monica is one awesome entrepreneur who has ingeniously fused comfort in high fashion! And she’s got a brilliant smile… and shoes!
Lisa and Kareena were the Mary Kay consultants who were doing the mini-makeovers! Some serious pampering was going on… of course, I had to get in on that! I remember when my mom’s friends were selling Mary Kay and it was definitely not a chic thing back then… but now?! It’s not just your mom’s make-up company anymore!
I just had to throw this last photo in… Sally and her husband Dave, who by the way, is so diligently lending a helping hand to his amazing wife. I can bug him about this because I’ve known him for ages! Tee hee Dave!
