My search for the perfect summer sandal may not be over but I have found a perfect pair of platforms. Part gladitor sandal, part wooden platform but what I love about them the most is that they are not black. They are a nice shade of navy blue, and dark purple, with great hardware. Just tough enough for all the floaty spring dresses I have been longing to wear. On top of all that they are from Spring, only $49.99. I feel like Spring has up their game and enter the grown up shoe world.

This dress was only $29.99, it fits great, has pockets(which I am a sucker for) and fabric covered buttons. There was quite a few cute dress, some more summer beach party but also a lot of office appropriate dress that were not boring.
This mini skirt was too cute to pass up. It too has pockets and great details that make it seem like it should have cost more than $24.00 dollars. There is even a lining in it. I can't wait to wear it with a white tank top and gladiator sandals.
This skinny belt was $6.00 same with this great sun goddess hat. This hat with be going to the beach with my ever day this summer. You have to protect that delicate face skin from those UV rays might as well look good doing it.
There was so much more to choose from and I will definitely be heading back for some more delightful day dresses. But the joys of Superstore don't stop there. If you need some other summer basics before you hit the beach there is sunscreen, beach towels, lawn chairs and why not get yourself a Bocce set to challenge those boys to a game with? Superstore has it all. You can even get the making for a picnic and be off to the beach or your favorite destination all in one stop. So I say give it a chance, you might not agree with me but I am not the only fashionista I know who rides the skytrain out to one of the Superstore just outside downtown to check out the cute frugal finds at Superstore.

Sunday and my parents tried to get out on the ocean in my parents boat they just got but the tide was too low and then when we were driving home on of the axles broke. Luckily the boat was fine but we got stuck on the side of the road for a couple hours. We did however make it home in time to have my favorite meal, with my grandparents before heading back to Vancouver on the 9:00pm ferry. It was a great weekend and a long time overdue.
I am a huge fan of the fashions of the '50s so I mostly took pictures of that time period but there was some fashion from every decade start in the early days of Vancouver.
I would wear these shoes still now, they were beautiful, as were the hats. The amount of time and detail that went into the hats was amazing.
This bathing suit you had to rent at Kitsilano back in the day. If someone wore that at Kits beach these days you would notice them a mile away in the sea of bikinis and bare chested men. I am glad that these suit are not around anymore. It was a great rainy day at the museum, and as we were leaving the sun came out. So we walked up to Cornwall St to Nando's Chicken for some wings and a pint of beer. All in all a great Sunday!
