Standing Armed - An Afternoon Of Shopping

Yesterday Lyndsey and myself spent our afternoon doing what we would love to do every single afternoon. We shared a one on one shopping experience with the Lindsay Walsh, designer of Standing Armed in her Studio on East Hastings!

Lindsay started Standing Armed in 2009 and after a 2 year hiatus living in London, England she decided it was time to get back into the game. She debuted her label with a F/W11 collection and recently showcased her SS12 collection in September.

As Lyndsey tried on her Fall/Winter 2011 collection it was apparent to us that this designer is extremely talented and on our list of favorite designers! Everything from the flow, style, cut, fabrications and colors made us feel beautiful and super feminine and if there wasn't more people that needed to use the room to change...we would have been there trying on the entire collection.

One amazing bonus was that we also got to try on the SS12 collection even though she only had runway samples. I immediately fell in love with a silk button down tank that will be made in black, (so excited!)

Lyndsey had some troubles deciding what she wanted but we all agree that she made the best choice and went with the purple silk dress.

Thank you to Lindsay and her mother for putting together a wonderful trunk sale, we will be back soon!

If you're interested in shopping the collection, Lindsay will be having another Trunk Sale today from 5pm - 7pm at 9 East Hastings Street, Vancouver. You can RSVP to

If you're unfamiliar with her collections, be sure to check out her site.
