Saturday on THE RISE…..

Saturday is the day where good friends, who work during the week, get to hang out together having lunch, going shopping, maybe taking in a movie……

I used to suggest Jules Bistro for lunch when URBANITY was in Gastown.  Now I suggest‘Salade de Fruits’ which is the local French Bistro just down on 7th.

URBANITY celebrates 2 months ‘on the rise’ today!

One-of-a-kind linen dresses

I was at the NW Trendshow in Bellevue in March where I saw a few samples of unique dresses from Poland and coats from Sweden, so I bought a small selection of each.  After waiting more than 3 months, and almost forgetting that I had placed an order, the linen pieces arrived.  Shown is an appliqued dress made from three different linens.  This dress is made by Mara Gibbucci–each piece is unique.  You can visit her website at

Perfect with this dress is the treasure chest necklace in shades of brown made by Connie Wright from Bowen Island.  Each necklace that Connie makes is totally unique, made up of beads and trinkets found from her travels to her grandma’s button box.

Fashion at Granville and Broadway

10 models walked the cross walk at Granville and Broadway wearing clothes from URBANITY and neighbour Babs as part of our meet and revisit evening on June 29th.  It was a wonderful summer evening.  Thanks to all who came!
