"The Bohemia Gallery"

STORE OF THE WEEK:


One of the amazing finds I scored on Sunday at the Main St Car Free Day was a red vintage dress from Bohemia Gallery. This store is amazing! Its two stories of vintage gems, and one section upstairs is a new designer who sells from this space. The store is run by a mother and daughter team who I found easy to shop from. They were very helpful, fun and nice. I found the downstairs to be super crowded as it was on Car Free Day but not a lot of people had ventured upstairs, where there were even more amazing gems to be found. The prices all varied but I thought they were in a good range for the quality and styles. There was also a large shoes section and a counter of jewellery. They take cash , debit, visa, the works! I tried on quite few items but not a lot fit me, as its vintage and there is only one of each item.

Then I found my new favorite dress, my Ladybug Dress! It is beautiful, and in my favorite color, so I had to have it. I wore it yesterday to work and then to school after work. A guy at my work said I looked like a ladybug and as I love ladybugs I have named the dress after them. Plus he is right it does kind of look like a ladybug. It is so fun, and a good way to get some of the new big shoulder trend without going over the top and out of my style realm. 

  
Dress: Vintage $20 at Bohemia Gallery
Belt: H&M $15

See the resemblance?



Not only did I find this amazing dress, but I also score a great hot pink bolero jacket that I have yet to wear. My friend, Ali found two great dresses, and my friend, Jen score a perfect hairband. That fact that all three of us has different body types and could all find something we loved makes this store my store of the week. 

I seriously suggest you check out The Bohemia Gallery, not only were there amazing pieces to be found but the ladies who run it are so nice and helpful. Take your time and browse the whole place as you never know where your next favorite piece could be hiding. I know I'll be back!
