Make a plan before you visit this downtown trend-spot. You could get turned away, logic we find strange in a recession.

      Rude Owner
      The owner was very rude, a friend of mine and I walked passed after van pride, as it was hot, I was in shorts and work out tanks. The owner pointed out how no one will let me in their clothing stores the way I am. Again, being hot, she would not even let my friend and I into her store, but very much wanted to chat out ears off. She complained about how Canadians have no style and her business is dying because no one comes by. And she was surprised that the gay community here did not frequent her shop and when they did, did not spend money. She gave me her business card and told me to come back when I actually wanted to have nice clothes and to spread the word to others. Word spread.

      Loves it

      Originally from Texas, was walking downtown Vancouver when I came across this small trendy store. Walked up and was immediately greeted by the owner. Was introduced to what I call my first fashion experience. She completely changed my outlook on what fashion was in the States and what Fashion was in Europe/Canada. I must have tried on thousands of dollars worth of top of the line clothing. In the end I only took a few items, spent well over $1200 Canadian, but in all honesty was worth every penny. I had an enjoyable experience. If I may suggest one thing, it would be to make an appointment. She will definitely make time for you and any friends if you call and schedule. It is not your ordinary store, which I must admit I love. If scheduled the owner will listen and dress you like you have never imagined. Well worth it! To those who have not had a pleasant experience, you obviously did not call first. Please give it a second shot, I highly recommend it. One of the best parts of Davie Street really.

      One of the Worst Stores in Gay Community
      She is rude, dismissive and the worst example of a "business" woman imaginable. Made the mistake of going to this store a few times years ago. Won't ever make the same mistake again. I don't know how she stays in business, but it's my hope that one day she won't be.
