Maman et bébé

As you probably may have noticed, both VAM ladies had children last summer and we here at at the shop can confirm that it shifts the dynamic but only with frequent adorable visits. Sophie had Sebastien Beau on June 22nd and not long after Renee had Rocco on July 23rd. Already pals, these two are the best dressed boys around Wellington West. 

Both being new mothers, they had the fabulous idea of creating an event which would take place once a month on Monday. Seeing the benefits of creating a zen atmosphere where new moms can shop stress free, they decided VAM was the perfect fit. Mats and toys are laid out and there is a designated area for stroller parking on the back patio. There are also couches upstairs in our house of clothing that are perfect for breast feeding. 

Fresh coffee and le petit dejéuner is served on these zen mornings. 
Feel free to join us sans bébé as well! See you Monday April 20th anytime between 10-1.

Dress the occasion

Much like the flowers, spring has finally decided to show! Along with the beautiful weather comes an array of formal occasions. Between prom, cocktail events and weddings the perfect dress is always the first thought crossing your mind.

Viens avec moi has got you covered this season with it's new arrivals from Myne LA, and Keepsake. Myne is a feminine line made downtown Los Angeles. Their designs have been spotted on many celebrity clients due to the exquisite fabrics and fit. Keepsake the Label has recently took on a high end appeal playing with shapes and different thicknesses of materials. This results in both show stopping and unique garments. Both structured and billowy silhouettes can be found in our house of clothing over the next couple of weeks.

These dresses are the occasion, no need to create one!

Sparrow Floral Design & VAM event

Spring has finally sprung in our little Westboro house of clothing. We want to celebrate with not only new arrivals clothing wise but with the one other thing that brings a smile to our faces besides fashion.

The ever creative Sparrow Floral Designs will invade a complete room in our shop with an array of plants on April 12th. Whether you are in need of a cacti, a terrarium or a stunning bouquet, Vanessa will have all three available for one day only. Not your typical arrangements, Sparrow creations embody both a vintage/ effortless look. Unique glass wear, stones and rare plants are fabricated into lustworthy pieces of art. 

From noon until five, swing by the store for a mimosa, new greenery and of course some spring fashion!

See you then,

VAM & Sparrow Floral Design

Spring break is for flash sales

Here at VAM we believe in celebrating anything that has to do with spring finally approaching or holidays. Days off can be spent outside in the warm sun wandering Wellington West with not a care in the world. March is the perfect time to get out with the old and welcome the new. Personally a wardrobe clean up is always essential before updating it with the latest wants. Crisp colour pallets & an abundance of white can be spotted in our house of clothing.

Drop by to shop the new spring goods from now until Friday with no tax!
Also have a peek at our sale room and obtain an extra 25% off already reduced merchandise.

North & Navy

VAM is ever so proud of our Les Gars curator Chris for his most recent venture opening Ottawas new go too spot, North and Navy.  Located in center town, this hidden gem already has the food scene buzzing. A cosy and minimal atmosphere was created & takes the customer to Northern Italy. White and blue tiles, lantern light fixtures and beautiful tufted leather booths enhance the ambiance.

A well curated wine list and even better menu has gems such as warm octopus salad, raw mushroom carpaccio and potato stuffed tortellini. These dishes are refined, fresh and encourage sharing with those dining with you.

Take our word for it or go try it yourself.
