Model Citizens Cocktail Party: Featuring the Delicious Best Kind Bakeshoppe

So something a bit special is happening at our Christmas Cocktail this Friday night. Yes, there will be champagne, yes there will be music and most importantly, a-mazing clothing and accessories from our back room but we are adding a bit more to the mix.

Best Kind Bakeshoppe is a home based business of fab sister duo Jana and Jess from beautiful Port-a-Grave. Best Kind Bakeshoppe is their homage to butter, cream and all that is holy in the sweet world.
With flavours like Blueberry Cheesecake, Mint Chocolate and even maple bacon they are taking their business to new heights, one delicious cupcake at a time.

We are so excited to offer our guests samples of their beautiful creations at our event on Friday night and the girls will be selling their divine creations, just for our customers. Sample as many as you want and then take some home for later.

Down with Denim

Double denim? I'm doubly down! While this trend has long been dubbed a serious fashion faux pas, acceptable to those only capable of lassoing a horse or attending a hoe down, major designers and stylists are saying YES this season. Embrace the denim on denim! And I agree.  Obviously I don't think anyone should be a rocking the "Traditional Canadian Tuxedo", or a go back to the denim pants suit (circa the early 2000's). However, playing with the 50 shades of denim and interesting pieces can make for an awesome casually cool look.

This look is super easy to pull off. I've paired a vintage Guess denim wrap dress (circa the 90's), with a super long grey knit vest. The jacket is vintage Marc by Marc Jacobs. The military style cut makes this longer denim jacket super hot. Paired with my favorite thing of the season- a vintage Coach satchel. We have a great selection of these in stock, and you should get one before they disappear! If you're following Coach at all you'll see many of the vintage styles reappearing in their Legacy line, so the original styles are becoming a hot commodity!

Happy Thursday everybody, we're open until 8 tonight. And remember- if you don't see it, can't find, or really, really want it- talk to us! If we don't have something for you in our magical wardrobe stash, let us add you to our wish list! Model Citizens aims to please :)
