Refresher Course: What to Wear to a Christmas Party (for Dudes)

Hey Guys,

Last December we posted a style guide for men’s Christmas Party Outfits.  I thought now would be the perfect time to bring it back for a refresher. You CAN show off at your office Christmas party. I give you permission. Check out below for some outfit ideas.

Love,

Devon Dale, Lady Adventurer for Hire.

I want to address the fellas out there.

Guys, suits are great for daily office wear but your Christmas is party is the one time of year that you can really dress to impress. I know that you have a tie with Santa Claus wearing a Hawaiian shirt but let me give you an alternative before you decide what to wear.

Be a little different:

If you just want to dip your toes into alternative formal wear come down and try on a black velvet double breasted vest. You can wear it with a white dress shirt and black pants that you already own. You’ll look classy and elegant and just a little different than you do every other day at the office.

Provide a little shock:

If you want to show a little more of your wild side try switching your everyday pants for our black vegan leather boot cut pants. I know wearing leather pants to an office event sounds crazy but paired with the white dress shirt and black velvet vest you’ll look more high fashion than you think. Its romantic, elegant and sexy.

Go all out:

Time to show the office drones who you really are. Replace your white dress shirt with a white poet shirt. This is a statement.  And that statement is sexy pirate. Do it, you know you want to.

Blow their minds:

Add a cloak to the outfit we’ve been building. Enough said.

What are you going to wear to your office Christmas party this year?

Happy Novemberween!

Happy Novemberween Everyone!

We hope you had a safe and happy Halloween and that your day was filled with more treats than tricks. We have been busy in the shop restocking all the things that sold out over October and making all kinds of new things too! Here’s what we’ve been up to so far:

Fan Expo Prep

I can’t believe it but Fan Expo is less than a week away! We are so excited to be vending for our fifth (or is it sixth?) year in a row! This year we will have a double booth to accommodate all the awesome stuff we’re bring. What kind of awesome stuff? Well how about contacts, goggles, cloaks, kilts and corset? Just to name a few. We’re desperately busy trying to make sure that we have all your favourite things in stock in time. Don’t worry, if you need to pick up a couple things before the show, we are open seven days a week.

 

Faux Fur Everything

Brr… it’s freezing. November has aggressively burst through the door with cold weather and snow! Do not worry, we have been building up an arsenal of faux fur accessories to keep you toasty warm and looking badass. We have faux fur suspenders, cloaks and holsters in store with faux fur hoods on the way. What more could you ask for in this weather?

Cocktail Dresses for Christmas Parties

I know it’s a little early for Christmas carols and decorations but a lot of offices start their Christmas parties around this time of year. Why go in the same little black dress that everyone else is wearing when you could take the opportunity to stand out and show everyone your style? We have some super cute vintage inspired dresses, some sexy goth (but not too goth) dresses and much more in store as well as some new styles on the same. It’s definitely worth coming to check out.

 

New Sale Stuff!

So in order to make room for all the new things that are coming we have to make some space. Our World Famous Last Chance for Love Sale Rack has just been updated with bondage pants, kilts, corsets, crinolines and much more. There are some gems in there so you should come check it out before it’s all gone.

Venus & Mars at Vancouver Pagan Pride

Guess what! We’re taking the show on the road (again). You’ll be able to find our extremely awesome pop up shop at Vancouver Pagan Pride Festival on September 9, 2017. Vancouver Pagan Pride is taking place at Trout Lake Park (3300 Victoria Drive, Vancouver, BC) from 10am – 6pm.  It is a free event to attend.  This is our first Pagan Pride Festival ever and we are pumped! Sanne has been busy making cloaks, pocket belts, holsters and other treats.

About Vancouver Pagan Pride

VPP is a non-profit organization held in participation with the global Pagan Pride Project. Pagan Pride Project is an international movement to promote community and understanding of the Pagan path. Vancouver Pagan Pride events increase community goodwill, public education and awareness towards Paganism. VPP is open to Pagans, non-Pagans, passersby, and onlookers.

Through education, activism, charity and community, the project promotes tolerance and understanding between people with different belief systems.

If you are a Pagan, the project can help you find pride and confidence in your path. If you are not a Pagan, the project can help you understand your Pagan friends, coworkers, and family members.

The first Pagan Pride Day was September 19, 1998; Vancouver Pagan Pride had its first event the following year. Vancouver Pagan Pride Day occurs during late summer/autumn, which symbolizes the responsibilities Pagans hold to their town/city/province in honor of the various Thanksgiving holidays.
