Introducing: Putchipuu

fashion, bags, trends, shopping

What is Putchipuu? So glad you asked!

During one of my recent buying trips to Los Angeles, I met the lovely founders of Putchipuu, Giovanni and Todd. I fell in love with the bags, and just had to share the compelling story behind them.

Every bag is handmade by the women of the Wayyu tribe in Colombia, using traditional, intricate weaving techniques. The production and sale of the bags has created a new independent and socially conscious economy with the aim of supporting women and their families. You can read their full story here.

The bags are now available in Victoria, Santa Monica and select Calgary boutiques. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Brow Game

eyebrow waxing

Eyebrows are like a frame for your beautiful face. Whether you’ve got bold natural brows or barely-there blondies, they can have a huge impact on your look.

We absolutely love providing brow waxing and tinting services to our clients. Even if you don’t think you have any hairs to spare, our brow consultants will work their magic to help you design a look you’ll love.

Our friend and blogger Hilary of The Canadian Quaintrelle walked us through her brow routine with our esthetician Katie. Check out how she keeps her brow game strong here.

fall nails with The Canadian Quaintrelle

One of our favourite Calgary bloggers, the gorgeous Hilary of The Canadian Quaintrelle, came to our Mission location ready to transition her nails from her summery pinks to a more neutral fall palette to go with her favourite seasonal plaids and knits. After her mani, she shopped our new fall accessories and found a fringe-y statement necklace and a carry-all clutch to complete her look! Check out her blog post about us for more fun fall fashion inspiration.
