I am SO pumped to spill the beans on this one. This summer, two of my fave local boss babes are popping up in the heart of Westboro: get ready for the Sona Clothing x Valamode Pop-Up Shop!
Allow me introduce you to these wonderful women in biz:
Sona Clothing is a local brand launched just weeks ago by my pal Gemma. Gemma’s passionate about helping women feel great in what they’re wearing, and she’s on a mission to bring beautiful, exclusive swimwear lines to Ottawa -- including some made-in-Canada gems!
Be sure to follow her on Instagram for a preview of the gorgeous styles she’s carrying. Her website is launching June 15 and you can keep in the loop by signing up here.
Valamode: Vintage à la Mode
Next up: Valamode. Valamode: Vintage à la Mode is a local luxury consignment biz founded by my gal Dia. Have some Louboutin heels you wore once cuz you can’t walk in ‘em? Yearning for a Chanel bag but can’t bear the retail price? Dia can help with both! Think of her as a luxury matchmaker who helps beautiful designer pieces find new homes.
Need to let go of some goodies? She’ll consign them on her site and put some cash back in your pocket. Eyeing some Jimmy Choos but can’t stomach the sticker price? Find a like-new pair on her site for a steal.
Valamode’s Instagram feed is a treasure trove of designer shoes and glorious handbags, so be sure to follow along! Dia’s been operating online since 2013, but her local pop-ups have proven so popular that she simply had to do it again. And I can hardly wait.
Sexy swimwear and designer treasures. Is this not a match made in heaven?!
