I have become a bit obsessed with a few local Canadian designers since I left San Francisco this past spring. One that particularly stole my heart is this hidden little gem in Victoria, B.C. – Oxford. While trying on a few fabulous dresses, I talked all things online shopping, shopping portals, and the role of social media with the store owner – Dave. It was brilliant and quite clear that he has an incredible vision of how simple and practical dresses can be designed beautifully for us busy minimalists.
I will have to devote an entire blog post to their lines of dresses very soon – especially the few that now live in my closet. For all of you breastfeeding moms out there looking for a post partum outfit – finally a cute dress with buttons!!! Think Fall. Think long sleeve. Think buttons. Think the perfect ‘Oxford Shirt’ dress in the most beautiful Japanese cotton. Designed and crafted in Victoria, B.C. – this store is my new absolute favourite. Check out the summer tank style below.
Let’s talk handbags – this one in particular. Buttery soft pebbles leather – I would send you think link to shop online but the owner Dave – is too busy designing these bad girls, he hasn’t had a chance to get his site lauches. Tisk, tisk.
If you are in Victoria, stop by the shop (589 Lower Johnson St.) and try a few things on. Tell the owner Dave that I sent you 👌🏻and tag me in your next favourite Oxford dress on Instagram @citymommastyle.
