Hey all,

if you're looking for the best little-known places to shop in and around Vancouver, check out my blog, Stylefinds! I promise - no Aritzia or LuluLemon. Just the best and brightest of the local fashion and shopping scene. With a little extra stuff on the side.

http://stylefinds.blogspot.com/

Or you can find me posting at Beyond Robson, although I haven't been opsting as much there this month - life always seems to get in the way of blogging!

Strut the Line show on Cambie
Shop Cocoon, a coop of local designers presented a fashion show on July 21st.

Yes, the little girl was a model too. The T had a moose cutout in polka dots. The crowd favourite dress was the short green dress, it had great details on the back.

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.
Hmm Let me guess for some of the street shots... I walk quite a lot all over the place, so I should recognise some of these. Well the skytrain station there should be VCC Clark (the one where you stop at Commercial and then take the only one that goes backwards) so that is a bit far... on the east side.
The one with the white floor, it looks like a mall near Burrard and Dunsmuir--I don't know the name
The girl with the scarf sitting down is at UBC Campus
The girl in the blue dress on the street, with the red building behind her, that should be downtown.. I have seen that red+black building. It's walking distance to waterfront station
The silver building with the green hedges on the roof, that might be the Space Planetarium. I've been there for a lecture... it was night time though

RedGloves I've been to a bunch of shops at Main St and Cordova.. Some nice clothing, but not exactly super interesting. ..they just seem a bit like ordinary clothes, but at least wearable

Try going farther up Main St, Main & Broadway has Lark, Jonathan + Olivia, Hotbox Accessories, Pleasant Girl...then even farther south there is Eugene Choo, Barefoot Contessa, Front & Co, Madison on Main, Narcissist, Umeboshi Shoes, much more...all around the Main & 23rd/25th area.

H&M to open on Thursday in Coquitlam Centre
Very interested to see what H&M will offer.

(Let's keep this thread above Toronto's!)

How about showing what you've found this summer, or take pictures of the tourists on Robson Street?

H&M coupon in their mag
The new H&M store generated some excitement here. They were offering 20% off coupons to the first 150 people. On the radio it mentioned that people started lining up at 4 am.

Any way, they have a 15% off coupon near the back of their H&M magazine, good until Sept. 30. It came bundled with one of my CDN fashion magazines.

I haven't checked out the store yet because I am not ready for back to school shopping The summer ISN'T OVER. The heat and sun just haven't happened yet...
