Lovely and luminous, their 100% vegetable wax blend candles have superior fragrance holding capabilities allowing aroma to radiate further. This blend is made from renewable sources and is grown by American Farmers. Cotton wick, hand poured in glass, with an aluminum cover or with a gift box.

The exclusive formula of the liquid soap is moisture rich and deeply cleansing; great for your hands and body. The recipe is a blend of select vegetable oils, honey, and botanicals and has no petroleum or animal components.

The generous two pound bottle of mineral bath salts looks stunning in any setting, but works and scents even better.

K. hall reed diffusers are among the best anywhere using thicker reeds that saturate thoroughly, allowing the scent to disperse further. They use only the highest quality essential and fragrance oils.

The hand lotion is packaged in a pretty gift box, and inside their special formula  is made with 5% shea butter, aloe leaf juice, and other fine ingredients that give the cream its rich, moisturizing qualities.

Their pure vegetable soap is enhanced with shea butter and olive oil known to moisturize and protect the skin. This half pound oversized bar is rich and creamy. Triple milled, this soap will last and last.

HUE Leggings and Tights

By now, you are probably familiar with the superior style of Hue Leggings. We just received a shipment of their best seasonal designs including soft suedine, pleather, metallic snakeskin, herringbone with leather trim to name a few. Shop early while we still have a good selection of sizes and styles. They are priced from $35 to $60. Unbelievable!

We also have all the new fall colours and patterns of tights that will streamline every fall outfit.

The Perfect Shoe

The legging and skinny jean look continues to be super strong. Many of our customers have been asking what show goes best with that look. We tell them a sweet little ballet slipper or a sleek bootie are the best match – so this year we brought them in so you can pair up the perfect shoe for yourself.

Plus we have some news to share on one of our designers….

Sympli

Recently the Globe and Mail carried an article on one of our favourite designers – Jan Stimpson the creator of Sympli. We have received a new collection of Sympli in great shapes and colours for our Goddess Plus Boutique. Let us put a holiday outfit together for you that promises to turn heads. Like our friend Judith Luther Wilder who rocked this outfit.

Here’s an excerpt of that article:

Canadian fashion designer conquers crowded U.S. market

It all started with the hunt for a flattering T-shirt.

Jan Stimpson had worked in the fashion industry for years – as a wholesaler, retailer and designer. But by the nineties, her children were grown and leaving the nest, so Ms. Stimpson was looking to get more serious about building a company.

Inspiration struck while on a shopping trip. No matter which store she went to, the only T-shirt Ms. Stimpson could find was “an oversize box with no shape whatsoever.”

“I’m not a small person, but I’m not a large person, either,” says the Burnaby, B.C.-based founder of White House Design Co. Inc. “But I would go in a store, and all of a sudden I’m an extra large, and I thought it was really insulting. Styles were really cute but there was nothing that fit. And it wasn’t just me – so many women just couldn’t shop any more. There was very little, if anything at all, that you could find in a popular store or a little boutique.”

To remedy this hole in the marketplace, Ms. Stimpson decided to create Sympli, a line of versatile clothing for women of all body types. Each item would be designed in three different fits: snug (for smaller body types), relaxed (for “a 35-year-old who’s had a couple of kids and doesn’t want to wear skin-tight things,” Ms. Stimpson says) and tunic (for a fuller-figured woman).

“We offer the same style for everybody, we just reinterpret it so that they can wear that style in a way that’s flattering,” she says.

Since introducing the Sympli line in 2001, Ms. Stimpson has seen her business grow into a $14-million enterprise, with clothing sold in more than 700 stores in Canada and the United States. The line includes more than 300 designs in 38 colours. Sympli bucks the current trend of cheaply priced “fast fashion,” offering high quality wardrobe staples that are made in Canada with a “moderate to high” price point.

For the whole story….
