Built by Wendy mirror dress

Ooh, this is kind of a fancy one! Good for a cocktail wedding, maybe? (Correct me if I’m wrong, I’ve never been to one of those…)

Filippa K linen tank

Another easy-breezy piece for summer, in a colour that some people (and Filippa K) call “nude”, but that’s so controversial right now that we’ll go with “pinky-beige”. Anyway, it fits like a dream!

F-Troupe Bathing Shoes

Your summer footwear options just keep getting better and better! These are for days at the beach, or Toronto Island, or anywhere with a water park… they’re lace-up bathing shoes, you guys, with cut-outs along the sides. Robin loves the green and I’m partial to the white, but really you can’t go wrong with either: $50!! Just one pair in each size, hurry hurry…

Oh ALSO, we’re doing something special this weekend: from Thursday May 27 (today!) through Sunday May 30, make any purchase in the shop and we’ll enter you to win a $100 Robber gift certificate! All the more reason to come down and check out our new stuff.

New Alternative Apparel tanks

Umm it is HOT out there, crew! Maybe you need a nice, light burnout henley tank top to take the edge off?

Rittenhouse stripes in Eye Weekly

You probably know by now that we are huge fans of stripes, and of course we are not the only ones… read Sarah Nicole Prickett’s article in this week’s issue of Eye and find out all about their punk-to-preppy past. And then come see the red and white Rittenhouse pirate top in person (looks much better than in my crooked scanning job below)!

Steven Alan Cruiser dress

All you will want to wear this entire long weekend.
