Changes Clothing & Jewelry Bar – 12th annual birthday fashion show (September 24)

I went to Changes Clothing and Jewelry Bar (4454 West 10th Avenue) last week to consign some of my clothing items that don’t quite suit me anymore, but would be great for someone else – an Abercrombie hoodie I never got around to wearing, ballet flats that were a bit too tight, etc.

“As fall approaches so does the urge to add to your wardrobe, and you may start wondering how you’re going to afford to purchase all of the fabulous pieces that beckon you to buy them; Changes has your solution. With beautiful brand name garments at affordable prices you will find you no longer have to curb your urge.”

This is probably the 7th year I have been a regular client of Changes Clothing – whether it’s to shop for myself, to consign my clothes, or to browse through their fabulous selection of jewelry. If you need another reason to visit the girly boutique, Changes Clothing is having their annual birthday fashion show on Thursday September 24, 2009 from 6:30pm to 10pm. For $10 (with 100% of ticket sales being donated to Big Sisters of Greater Vancouver) the evening will feature models styled by their in house stylist, refreshments, and discounts! To purchase a ticket please call 604-222-1505.

MMV Contest – win tickets to Spend on Trend 2009


.
Spend on Trend was one of the first events I ever wrote about on Modern Mix Vancouver, and it was the friendly guidance and support from Nicole Stewart (the PR representative behind this event) which taught me a lot more about the local fashion and media industry.
.
Now, Spend on Trend is back again and Modern Mix Vancouver readers can get first dibs on this trendy exhibition event, featuring Canadian designers and their arts, crafts, clothing, jewelry, accessories and more! From August 21-23, shoppers can head down to the Scotia Bank Dance Centre (677 Davie Street) to, quite literally, “spend on trend”. Tickets to this event are regularly $5 at the door, but one lucky MMV reader will have a chance to get postal-mailed a pair of tickets, directly to their door.
.
All you have to do is email info@modernmixvancouver.com and tell me what your favorite reason for shopping local is! Submissions will be drawn at random and the winner will be notified in the first week of August!!
