My find of the week was a Canadian based store names Artizia that has expanded country-wide and even made it's way into the states. Having started in Vancouver, this increasingly popular clothing store has maintained its small roots origins in the heart of Whistler Village. I was happily greeted by the two young women working the floor who offered several pieces of advance and suggestions for great outfit combinations.
I was told that all the brands featured in Aritzia, including Wilfred, TNA, and Tulula were all original collections found only in Aritizia stores. After investigating the online site, I instantly feel in love with this store and every collection they feature. I wasn't going to lose the chance to take a little of Canadian fashion home with me and immediately headed for the dressing room to try on a few of the numerous pieces I simply adored. If I could have had one of everything on the racks, I would have instantly created my ideal wardrobe. With my souvenir budget limited, I happily walked away with two items I'm dying to show off back in the States.
When I saw this Floral Blazer I new it was the perfect Spring apparel to add life to my semi-colorless collection of day dresses and casual blouses.

The silkiness and relaxed feel of this wrap dress stole my heart at first touch. I opted for an sea foam green color that worked best with my skin tone. The cropped sleeves and thin shoulder pads add definition to the looseness of the wrap.

I was ecstatic to learn that along with the locations in Chicago, Vancouver, Soho and Whistler, an Artizia of our own is soon to appear in Michigan! The Somerset location will be opening this year and when it does I'll be first in line to get another piece to add to my Canadian collection.
