Last Friday, Vanessa (Editor of Modern Mix Vancouver) and I got the chance to visit Violet Hill boutique in Steveson, Richmond, which is primarily known for its fishing and small community feel, and not known for fashion or style. I was pleasantly surprised by the small purple store, which houses many unique labels, not all local, but not all huge international designers either. Style wise, it was right up my alley, because all pieces were not too dressy, but versatile enough to pair them with other pieces in your wardrobe and create stylish and cute outfits. Aside from the few bright pieces of clothing, the majority of items in Violet Hill are neutral and earthy tones, which I love because that makes matching them with other pieces much easier to do. Great job in selection, Nicola!
Guests of the media event on Friday received a sweet swag bag which included a $50 gift card for Violet Hill! And this was in addition to everything in store being 50% off!! So of course I had to take advantage of the awesome deal! But instead of purchasing clothing (yes it was so hard to resist), I opted for jewellery, specifically two Social Experiment cocktail rings, and a pieces bracelet. (my astrology sign)
