I had to post this because I recently found a gem of a store in West Vancouver called the Glass House. It is an absolute treasure trove of goodies for the serious shopper. I couldn't believe that there is a place like this in Vancouver - or even in Canada for that matter. They carry everything from designer bags, shoes, belts, accessories, dresses, jeans - the hottest tee shirts even some real couture items. It is like a candy store for fashion. You can dress and accessorize from head to toe - and they also cater to guys too. They carry bags from Gucci, Prada, Marc Jacobs, YSL, and even Balenciaga (and they take orders too) there is lots more, awesome clothing from Bluemarine like you have never seen before. D & G coats - Prada and Gucci coats, shoes, boots for women and men, so many things that you won't even find anywhere else! I just bought a gorgeous Roberto Cavalli Grande bag that is to die for - it is emerald green velvet with gold painted in a brocade type pattern with printed alligator leather trim and a pair of Gucci black suede tall boots. Supposedly it is "private VIP" shopping, but if you say that you heard about it through your friend (that is what I did) then they won't refuse you. The prices competative and even better than many of the major stores and online shopping sites (that are in the US by the way). The address is 1425 Clyde Ave, West Vancouver - I am not completely sure of their hours, but I think it is something like 10 or 10:30 - 5pm and I am not sure if they are open on Sundays or not and I am not sure if they ship to other parts of Canada. Happy shopping!
