19 Sep

Between movie fests and shopping nights out we were crazy enough to squeeze in our very first pop-up sale on September 7th!  Thank you to all our shoppers who made it out that night and made it such a success. In case you missed it, don’t worry – we are definitely planning to have another pop-up soon!

The Pavlyn Girls

First of all, we want to send a big THANK YOU to Angela and Valentina from The Store On Queen (TSOQ) at 719 Queen Street West, where our event took place. We love their mix of sexy and edgy pieces, and they were so sweet to let us use their phenomenal venue for all our dresses, jeans, blazers, and accessories.

Second of all, we want to thank all our interns and friends who helped us make this event a reality! Especially, Lee Anne, Ruth and Stacey. We couldn’t have done it without you girls.

Thank you to The Store On Queen (TSOQ)

Dresses, Blazers and Deepa Gurnani Crystal Headpieces

The night was hot, because of the sexy clothes (of course!) and… maybe the broken AC ;) but thank goodness we had a little bubbly to cool us down!

The Pop-Up Sale Begins

We had some great sales and were able to feature some of our newest arrivals like the Keepsake Say You Will dress. Shoppers couldn’t keep their hands off our Naven, Blaque Label and For Love and Lemons dresses and blazers! It’s always so fun to see how people pair our pieces to create their own looks!

Our new Deepa Gurnani crystal headpieces were brilliant and Maria sparkled in hers throughout the night. If you’re tired of the same old accessories and want to try something new, these little headbands are a total show stopper and will instantly dress up any outfit, look super cute, and dazzle everyone! Plus, the celebs are loving Deepa’s handmade bands!

Pop-up sales are such a great way to meet new people and get an idea of what our customers like! We just love seeing the dresses in person and providing styling tips on the spot! Overall, it was a really fun night and we loved meeting all of you!

Keep your eyes out for our next pop-up. And let us know if there’s a neighbourhood you’d like to see us in!

Pavlyn Girls Photoshoot – Summer 2012

13 Sep

Photoshoots are always such a stressful experience! They leave us running around town, coordinating hair appointments and make-up, all the while making sure the photographers and the clothes are on set at the right time. We’re not sure if it would be better or worse if we hired models that we had to coordinate in addition to all this! Here is a little sneak peak of all the craziness from our last shoot for our Summer 2012 collection with Photographer Matthew De Miglio of District PR (God bless them for being so patient and making this experience so fun!)

When we see the final product on our site, its so easy to forget how much work goes into making it all. We love to document the experience ‘behind-the-scenes’ to remind ourselves of the process and remember to enjoy every minute of it! We are now prepping for our Fall 2012 shoot, which promises to be one of our most exciting collections to date! So stay tuned for all our amazing new Fall Fashion and of course a documentary of our journey there!

Dress of the Week: Keepsake’s Lost Without You

3 Sep

Here at Pavlyn Boutique, we’ve always been huge fans of Keepsake. This brand provides glamorous pieces with the sort of unique detailing that guarantees to be a show-stopper.  And of course, all this comes at price points that cannot be beat. For this season, one of our favourite pieces by Keepsake has been the Lost Without You Dress. Right on trend, the dress features subtle cut-outs at the bodice, adding a dose of sexy with glimpses your skin. The dress is further complete with a ruffled v-neckline and a baby doll skirt, creating a real flirty effect.

A-list celebs, including Hayden Panettiere and Nicky Hilton have been spotted rocking the latest colour addition to this dress – Spearmint. Which is why  we couldn’t be more excited about adding  Keepsake’s Lost Without You Dress in Spearmint to Pavlyn Boutique!

Hayden and Nicky are glowing in this season’s hottest  colour. We love the way Nicky paired her Keepsake dress with neutral coloured pumps and clutch, allowing the gorgeous mint colour to shine.  And while Nicky’s look is great for a night out, if you’re looking for a more casual look, we suggest wearing gold gladiator sandals matched with cute gold jewelry.

Looking to tone it down for fall? We love mustard yellow and blush. Sarah Carroll opted for Keepsake’s Lost Without You Dress in Blush while Nicole Richie looked beautiful in Keepsake’s Lost Without You Dress in Mustard Yellow! We love that this dress comes in so many colours, making it easy (or hard) to choose the colour that works best for you.

Recently, we had the opportunity to style the girls from the Nat & Marie show  for their final show of the season. We chose this flirty dress in Mustard for Nat, pairing it with white pump and gold accessories.  We loved the results and so did she!

With so many celebs rocking this gorgeous dress, who do you think wore it best?

Fall 2012 Fashion Trends

21 Aug

The summer is coming to an end and Fall 2012 is just around the corner. It is always sad to see the summer go, but we’re so excited to start rocking Fall fashion! Fashion Week has come to an end, but these amazing fashion shows have left us loving the official trendiest colors and styles for Fall 2012! With unexpected mixes of darks, brights and neutrals, we’re completely gaga over everything that Fall 2012 has to offer!

1. Oxblood

We’re so excited to see deep hues decorate the Fall 2012 landscape! Call it what you want – maroon, burgundy, oxblood – we’ve gone absolutely gaga for all shades of red! These deep wine hues are the new black and we can’t wait to see these fantastic colours make a huge statement this season!

It’s back and classier than ever before! Military-inspired ensembles marched down the catwalk at New York Fashion Week. From Victoria Beckham, Tommy Hilfiger to Alexander McQueen, army greens and uniform details are must-haves for Fall 2012!  We love the way these ensembles kept their feminine silhouettes, however military accents were added, which included high collars, oversized pockets and glossy gold buttons!

Darker embroidered lace will be used with the occasional pop of color. We love lace because it’s always the perfect blend of sweet and sexy! The beauty of lace is that it can be worn to the office and then worn for a night out on the town!

We absolutely love this For Love & Lemons Scarlet dress. This mini dress is a real beauty with crafted floral lace, long sleeves and crochet trim and the cuffs and hem.
