Happy Father's Day

For many of us, Father’s Day can be a tough one. He may not have gone through labour, but with newborns comes chaos and diaper disasters. We’re also fairly certain he’s spent a number of sleepless nights caring for you and has relentlessly given up attending some of his favourite sporting events to play tea party.

So, what do you buy the man who taught you how to tie your shoelaces, play catch, and likely a thing or two on how to reach your greatest potential? Sure, you could pick him up another “World’s Best Dad” coffee mug or t-shirt – he probably wouldn’t make a fuss. But why not get him something unique this Father’s Day?

Luckily for you, we’re having one of our biggest Father’s Day sales yet. We’re now offering 50% off on all of the men’s goods currently in store! We’re sure you’ll find something special for dad, whether you’re looking to buy him a new comb for his beard, simply the best tasting maple syrup that can be found in town, a top of the line travel bag or some small batch ginger ale for his favourite apr├Ęs work drink.

Scroll down for a peak at some of the goods currently on sale and then hurry on over before we sell out!

Vacation Mode

Packing for a trip can often feel daunting. Questions start to brew in our heads weeks in advance, like: what will I feel like wearing while I’m away? Will it be warm or chilly in the evenings? How much can I pack before it’s considered "over packing"? Well don’t fear VAMers, we’re here to help. Just sit back, relax, and let us do the hard work for you – it’s your vacation after all!

The key to packing a stylish, yet light, wardrobe is to choose versatile items. To us, this means packing items that can be mixed and matched and easily transformed from day wear into night.
Black and white items are always a good base. Simple and versatile - you can never go wrong. 
Once you have your bases covered, add in some printed items and a pop of colour! We've gone ahead and selected a few must have vacation pieces for you (each under $200!) - whether you're headed to the beach or plan on roaming the streets of Europe, we've got your wardrobe covered.

Pink Stitch black tank top: $95, DRA Clothing white maxi dress: $169, Glamorous black culottes: $69, BB Dakota tropical playsuit: $110, DRA Clothing charcoal top: $120, DRA Clothing charcoal skirt: $120, DRA clothing printed dress: $189
