Devon Dale is a twenty something Vancouverite. When she isn’t being a lady adventurer for hire she is at Venus & Mars selling you corsets, kilts and other steampunkery. She enjoys hula hooping, reading and yoga. When you see her in the store, mention the Doctor and she will squeal like a delighted child.
I came across an article called “Old-world corsets and gowns define a modern romantic chic” by Mary Frances Hill featured in the Westender in October, 2000. That’s like before smart phones so people still had to use newspapers. You can see it here. I had to scan it btw.
Mary highlights two hot new designers and their shops, Heidi Schmidt from New World (holla) and Sanne Lambert from Venus & Mars (duh). She goes out of her way to praise lace up bodices and Queen Anne collars.
Where am I going with this?
Well, we just made a hot, new fresh batch of wicked sexy QUEEN ANNE CORSELETS (lace up bodices with Queen Anne collars – see what I did there?) and you absolutely need one. Devon’s Super Awesome Wardrobe of VM has three so far but I’m totally going to get myself a fourth one because now they come in purple.
These things NEVER go out of style. They look equally awesome with jeans or crinolines or skirts. You can dress them up or dress them down but ultimately you will look super sexy regardless and they are as comfortable as wearing a tshirt. You need one. What are you waiting for?
Check out some vintage VM QUEEN ANNE CORSELETS in the video below.

The New York Times has declared that the monocle is back in the recent article ‘One Part Mr. Peanut, One Part Hipster Chic’ by Allen Salkin.
While I appreciate that the New York Times is an esteemed publication and historically held up as the holy grail for freelance writers, I still have to express the following: Duh and/or hello.
Monocles are badass and as far as I’m concerned they never went out of style to begin with. No, monocles are more like the unicorn of eye wear. You may
go you’re entire life without seeing one, but for the pure of heart who are graced with it’s presence it is truly a magical experience.
The dapperness of a monocle is beyond compare. It’s like a classy eye patch that you can see through. I for one would be ecstatic if they became a
fashion trend and were readily available in every mall in an assortment of styles and colours.
But alas, that day is not today. Do not despair, Venus & Mars has a solution for you.
We carry MONOCLES and MONOGOGGLES (for when you need to be classy
and a cyborg). You too can join the ever growing micro-trend before it explodes into the mainstream.
Below is a video that explains how to wear one of these uniquely awesome accessories.
What do you think of the monocle trend? How much do you dig it? Let us know in the comments below.
Everyone knows someone who wants a monocle. Why not share this with them over Facebook, Twitter or by email?
Once upon a time there was a little rocker chick from Richmond.
Her name was Sanné Lambert. The little girl studied hard, won many proud battles and eventually landed in glamorous Gastown where she built the kingdom of Venus&Mars.
For 19 years the steampunk kingdom was a land of peace and prosperity. One dark day an evil troll named Landlordia decided that she no longer wanted the kingdom of Venus&Mars steampunk in the land of Cambie and poisoned all the crops giving the good people of Venus&Mars only thirty days to find a new home before they starved.
Sanné Lambert search high and low through all of Gastown until she found a space of abundance on the edge of glamorous Gastown to rebuild the kingdom of Venus&Mars.
After a year of hard work, Venus&Mars Hastings was more prosperous than it had been in years and everyone knew that it was only going to get better with time.

Oh yes, and of course, they lived happily ever after but it is far from the end.
