Eco-Luxury Boutique The Closet YVR Launches in Vancouver

I first met Helen Siwak of The Closet YVR when she kindly helped me style the cast of Hamlet last year. It's truly amazing to see her incredible collection of thrifted luxury goods finally find a much-deserved home in Gastown: a big step from what used to be an all-online shop!

The Closet YVR is an eco-luxury boutique that carries not only designer fashion resale, but also local eco-friendly products and fashions. Mixed among the shoes, scarves and beautiful dresses are all-natural soaps and straight-from-the-runway designs from local fashion talents. Her pre-loved designer items are definitely worth perusing; you'll find everything from Dior to Gucci and more. The shop will even offer personal eco-styling services and wardrobe consultations from Lead In-House Stylist Dominique Hanke.

And it doesn't stop there, every month, The Closet YVR will host pop-up shops in the boutique, giving more local designers and artisans a chance to have their products available for you to shop!

The most adorable Valentino blazer in plaid (of course, it's an obsession) caught my eye while I took a look through the racks of luxury clothes; check it out below, I feel like it's the perfect transitional piece for fall, no? 

If you're in the Gastown area in Vancouver, pop by the boutique at 360 Carrall St, say hello to Helen and check out the beautifully curated collection of eco luxury fashion! The Closet YVR is open from Monday to Saturday, 11am-6pm, or by appointment on Sundays.

'Gassy Jack' made a pit stop by the store too, although he chilled on the floor more than he shopped...

Happy Styling! xo
