Compassionate, beautiful design is here!

Look good while doing good in Valerie Dumaine's latest print

For the last few collections, Valerie Dumaine has been adding a series of pieces in exclusive prints titled Compassion & Design. With each purchase of these pieces she donates a percentage of the sales to support organizations which care for the well-being of animals. This year, a percentage of sales from the series will be donated to Penny Lane Farm Sanctuary, a registered not-for-profit corporation located east of Ottawa in Saint Pascal Bayton, Ontario, which provides a safe haven to horses and farmed animals at risk of being sent to slaughter as well as those that have suffered abuse or neglect. The Mihail top and the Odessa dress are the pieces that showcase the stunning print that's part of this ongoing series. With bright pops of purple and blue against the white, these pieces are fresh and will look as good now as they will through the seasons. 

Her collection also includes a bit of sparkle and as always, classic black. The sequinned Trixie tops and Zinnia dresses will surely be a hit at any party! And the ever perfect VDLBD (that's Valerie Dumaine Little Black Dress, a term we've officially coined!) Irena and Odessa dresses are made for business meetings and post-5 o'clock meet ups. 

For those of you who aren't familiar with this Vancouver based jewelry line, Foe & Dear is the culmination of classic style and innovative design. From 4" mega hoops to delicate oval studs, you'll not only love the look of these marbled beauties, but be pleased to know they are made of 100% eco-friendly acetate. They'll impact your look but not the planet!

We also received a restock of classic styles from Sosie Sosie, including the ever popular Tencel Belted dress! This luxurious feeling fabric is heat-friendly and perfect for bringing on trips or walking to work on a hot day!
