Trifecta of Awesomeness Charity Event!!

Dresses + Shoes + Charity! (+ cupcakes!)

Last night Cherry Velvet Dresses, along with Fluevog Shoes held a very special event at the Fluevog store on Granville Street in Vancouver. We were thrilled to team up with Fluevog, our favourite purveyor of shoes on the planet. But even more important than tasty refreshments and goodie bags, and pairing gorgeous dresses with amazing shoes, was the third element of the Trifecta. We felt that Mom2Mom was the perfect charity to put our collective support. We wanted to let you know about this wonderful cause that supports families right here in our own neighbourhood.Cherry Velvet and Fluevog put on a charity event to benefit Mom2Mom

About Mom2Mom Charity:

Mom2Mom works to improve the lives of children living in poverty by supporting their moms. In Vancouver, Moms in poverty struggle with incredible stress and isolation. This puts stress on the whole family and deprives both mom and children of connection to resources, positive influences, and opportunities.

We believe that when moms thrive, children thrive. Since 2011, Mom2Mom charity has worked to support moms’ wellbeing by reducing the stress and isolation of living in poverty.

Mom2Mom builds strength-based relationships and a caring community through a volunteer program; reduces poverty-related stress by supporting children’s basic needs, and provide opportunities and connection to resources for both mom and children. We envision a future where moms and their children thrive in caring and connected communities!

Our Fabulous Customers!

We couldn’t be more thrilled with the attendance at our event last night. It seems that the combination of fabulous frocks, sublime boots and shoes, social consciousness and wonderful people created just the right atmosphere for the perfect evening. Most of all, we want to thank everyone who took the time to show up and help make a difference in our own community. Ultimately it’s the kids who will benefit with the help of Mom2Mom and we are honoured that we could be part of that!

Quirky Erstwilder Brooches!

Vintage style

A few years ago while traveling in the United Kingdom I discovered a little pin-up shop in Manchester. There was the most adorable red poodle brooch I had to have. It reminded me of vintage bakelite and so I’ve been looking for more ever since. Now I’m excited to tell you that we are selling these very same Erstwilder brooches in our showroom and online.

A Perfect Match

It was easy to choose the brooches as they have the same bright, fun and quirky appeal that our dresses have. So many of the pins are a natural match to Cherry Velvet dresses as so many of the themes are similar: Flowers, Cats, Birds and even Space! We absolutely had our Fall line of dresses in mind when we made our choices.

Zombies are in all year, right? This one is called “Drop Dead Gorgeous” with Olivia Dress in Circuit.

Our Vanessa Final Frontier Dress adorned with swirling planets is even more perfect with retro “Roxy’s Ray Gun” pinned to it. Space themed brooches are stellar with dresses like Doris Star Magic.

Whether you match or just accent, these pins are true conversation starters. The “Ruby the Red Cardinal” pin sets off the deep red of the hardcover books just right. Norma Dress in Page Turner.

Limited Edition

Erstwilder designs and produces collectible, limited edition brooches made of layered resin. The detail is truly amazing! They obviously draw a lot of inspiration from all things vintage, rockabilly, pinup, retro and have a love of animals of all kinds too. Each brooch comes its own gift box complete with a little story paying homage to history, myth, pop-culture and classic storytelling. They’re the perfect gift for anyone who loves to accessorise.

Pinning on one of these little pieces of art is bound to fill you with joy! These brooches can sell out quickly so if you love one, don’t miss out!
