Oh, confession time...I own lululemon pants too! And I can't really justify it by saying that it's for yoga because that's also one of those things that *all* Vancouver girls do...

I shopped at Aritzia when I was 14....years and years ago now..and I own a pair of Lululemons..but I actually use them for yoga and the gym..the worst is when people wear Lululemon to the bar...
As for clubs..I like Shine and Believe Saturdays at the Red Room..
And in terms of design..Ayden Gallery and Lumen Gallery (they had a wicked David Carson exhibit not too long ago...)

agreed with everyone. i ABSOLUTLEY LOVE my city and i feel very fortunate to have grown up here.. but vancitys style is not great. EVERYONE and their effing grandma owns a "TNA" suit and a pair of Nike shox.

the city is plagued with fake designer things (as mentioned above fake LV stuff) so you can't walk down the street with a designer bag without being asked if its fake or not.

and apart from the gym, lululemon should not been worn OUTSIDE

I came across this: http://thecommodified.blogspot.com/ thanks to the link on the facehunter site. I'm tempted to stroll into that AA now I'm at Metrotown all the time for work.

i live near main street. i've passed by a lot of stores with nice clothing outside, but i feel too intimidated to step into any of them.

does anyone have pictures of anything they've bought from stores on main street?

hoping to start shopping soon for back to school

Oh wow, those pictures are pretty impressive, I must say! But where are those people? Why do I never see them on the streets?! Instead I see prepubescent girls frolicking around Kerrisdale, Robson, and Richmond Centre in the "uniform" (Aritzia, A&F, Hollister, AE, Lululemon).

I'm dying to check out Main St. and to rediscover West 4th, I've been so bogged down with school, all the shopping I've done since the summer was in the States. Oh New York.

You can find a decent amount of uniquely dressed folk at concerts here and there Speaking of, a random guy took a picture of me and a friend dancing... It hasn't turned up anywhere yet.

Those pictures are great!! I am travelling to Vancouver for a wedding in a couple of weeks (my outfit is ready, giant cheetah print silk minidress, black tights, not sure about the shoes yet, sounds kinda tacky but its not that bad) but my friends and I will be there for New Years Eve and we dont have a clue what to do or where to go. Any hints would be greatly appreciated.

I am proud to say that I own no items from Aritzia nor Lululemon

But there is some good street fashion in Vancouver. However, they're few and far inbetween.
