Best Spring EVER at Bodacious!!!

by Apr 15, 2014Uncategorized

I have so much to share so you might want to grab a cuppa and get comfy…

Last week I had the great pleasure of attending the first ever Body Love Conference in Tucson, Arizona! lorna and tess munster body love conf 2014

It ROCKED MY WORLD!  I got to meet so many beautiful and inspiring women.  Read more about my experience here.

As the conference was only one day, I decided to stay a few extra days and play tourist.  Pool time! Road trip along the Catalina highway!  The Sonoran Desert Museum! So awesome and HOT!  My body loved getting drenched with that vitamin D.  I ate a LOT of  Mexican food and drank a few margaritas!  I took the time to catch up on my reading and journaling.  And I really just enjoyed some time on my own.  The last year and a bit has been wonderfully intense and it felt really good to just soak it all in and appreciate the journey. tucson desert
And how lovely to come back to such a beautiful SPRING in Vancouver!!!

The store is so full right now, we’ve actually just added two more racks to accommodate all the amazing new items that have been arriving daily.

Beautiful new Chalet LINEN and crinkle just arrived yesterday!  Loving this soft, washed linen and the colours are all so bright and fresh.

This Modern Print skirt by Chloe Angus is an abstract interpretation of Haida art that combines the traditional form with modern abstract designs of the 21st century.
Available in black & orchid. Gorgeous!
Sizes medium – xxl
I have to say that the Chloe items were a huge part of my travel wardrobe.  The buttery soft bamboo/cotton blend works in all temperatures and wears so well.
There are several awesome new styles this season that will also be hanging in my closet including the tank dress, the gauchos and the cowl top.
The linen tank tops have already been flying out the door and the new colours of their famous button wraps are so lovely!  And all made right here in Vancouver!
