Tiffany's crop top!

Vancouver's best kept secret: Oak + Fort (32 Water St - Gastown).

Upon moving back to Vancouver (permanently), my friend Tiffany & I have been on an adventurous search for new/fun/exciting places to shop, eat and hang out. Oak + Fort happened to catch our eyes with its minimalist-designed space and stylish clothes. Think: high fashion, effortless style, simplicity (back to the basics) & luxury at an affordable price. The girls were kind enough to let me take some photos while we shopped (Thank You!) - I ended up buying another wool blazer/jacket in a tweed-printed charcoal grey, while Tiffany found a side zipper sweater & a Greece-inspired crop top. I'm very excited to see what direction they'll take for SS11 and it is now on my list of places to drop by from time to time tout les temps...

PS. Will be back in Toronto Jan 29 - Feb 1st.
Note to self: need to take photos of everyone before I leave for good...

- Love, S.

Went in there today and fell dangerously in love (and in future debt). I agree with comments above, incredibly affordable considering the quality and design. Better than run-of-the-mill, everybody's got one Artizia and cheaper. Crazy. Let's keep it a secret though? ;P
