Yesterday I went to a RSVP shopping event at Fine Finds sponsored by Style Spy. Fine Finds is a boutique in Vancouver, located in the Yaletown neighbourhood. Style Spy is a blog/shopping guide that features shopping, beauty and social events in Vancouver and Toronto. Fine Finds is a cute little boutique that showcases many Vancouver designers as well as designers from all over Canada. Although the price points are higher than shopping at the mall franchises like H&M and Forever 21, I love supporting local businesses and Canadian designers whenever I can.
The Fine Finds event was on October 15 and is an one night shopping event where almost everything is at least 20% off. There were also additional discounts and goodies if you pick certain raffle tickets. It was a fun night of free Yellow Tail wine tasting and tasty delights such as French macaroons and mini cupcakes.
The shopping theme is Gossip Girl style fashions and makeovers. I would have loved to get a Gossip Girl makeup over and try a rocker chick Jenny Humphrey look, but it was so crowded in there and the line up for the cash desk was at least 20 minutes long, I didn’t have time for a mini makeover, so I had to pass. There was also, Haute Nails demonstrations and I tried that because it was a quick application. Haute Nails are Japanese rubber nail sticks used to bling up your nails. I picked up a pack and I will do an entry on that soon.
At the event I picked up a cute little feather headband made of duck and chicken feathers with a brass maple leaf charm on it.
For the purchase I got a “swag” bag full of goodies from Benefit: a full sized That Gal Brightening Face Primer, sample sized Eye Con and sample sized B Spot eau de toilette. These Benefit items have been around for awhile now but I have yet to try any of these except for the Eye Con eye cream. I will be back with an entry on these items as soon as I can.

Included in this goodie bag are samples of Marc Jacobs’ Daisy eau de toilette and Daisy Luminous Body Lotion. I am please that the fragrance comes in a decent size of 4ml/0.130z and it is in a miniature replicate bottle of the full size fragrance. I will report back on my views of the fragrance and lotion as soon as I can.

The goodie bag also include sample vials of Lancome Tresor and Magnifque and Fast Food Leave on Conditioner. There were also vouchers from various Vancouver restaurants and beauty salons included.
I can’t wait to try the Benefit and Marc Jacobs goodies and report back. Stay tuned!
