September chills are upon us as we venture into alluring trends and layer love at 2, yes two events this month! Join us for our Sweater Soiree: September 13-16 and Couture Outerwear: September 20-22. Our She.la gang recently gathered at a new venue, Mode de Vie, to chit-chat “parlour style” about incoming arrivals and plan for what’s to come. Who’s ready for fantastic fashion finds and cozying up by the fire-we sure are!
Elevated exaggerations to classic fits, crushed velvet, rich hues…ROMANTIC MAUVE…PAPRIKA….HONEY MUSTARD…plaid & ruffles…a lil retro from the eighties “think Grace Jones”, shiny textures, power shoulders and pantsuits…future fashion…metallics and bright neon… ruffle nuances…catchy catchphrases…transforming styles…almost architectural…tie-string sleeves…aesthetically art-like…with hand-painted kimonos…in the cuddliest quality fabrics to cuddle in.
Dressing is a way to express ourselves and can truly bring fashionistas a way to divulge together and converge through fashion. As John Galliano once said, “The joy of dressing is an art.” Enjoy a lil VISIONARY DELIGHT about Mode de Vie and a peek at our fluttering arrivals of this season!
Mode de Vie, meaning “Way of Life” is a French-inspired champagne bar with a menu drawing inspiration from traditional French culinary and flavors from around the world. Cajun Fondue, North African Wings, Spring Roll Salad, Shrimp and Sweet Potato Cakes, The French Onion Sandwich, Clay Pot Seabass, Moroccan Chicken Thighs, Rum Scallops, just to name a few to salivate your palette. And did we mention they have dessert too? Chocolate Mousse Parfait, French Apple Tart and Hibiscus Tart-oh amour. Drink offerings include a list of original craft cocktails, local beer and sparkling wines. If the weather permits, we suggest sitting on the outdoor corner patio and sip on delightful chardonnays, cosmos and French-75 cocktails as we embark on fall.
