Style & Swirl with Calgary’s Heart and Swirl
Shopping and wine. Have I got your attention? It totally got mine when Calgary’s Heart and Swirl announced a private consignment shopping and wine tasting event at Clothing Bar Boutique. And I didn’t even mention yet that all of the clothes were 50% off. That’s right. 50% off. And there was delicious wine and a lot of interesting women.
I hadn’t been to Clothing Bar Boutique even though it is only an extremely short drive/bike ride/walk from my house in Calgary but I had been to a Heart and Swirl event before where I spent the evening painting and drinking wine with Kelley Abbey, creator of Heart and Swirl, and local painter Jill Paddock. The evening was a huge success and went on late in to the night. I’m surprised there was anything left in the store at the end of the night… I came home with three things – a J.Crew sweater that I had seen not too long ago but didn’t buy even when it was on sale for $17, a plaid jacket that was a little bit more of an impulse by for $21 and a black sleeveless blouse that was only $7. The J. Crew sweater has been worn at least three times already and the black blouse once. I regret the jacket a little because I haven’t worn yet although I think it is really cute. My total cost for the night was $67.25 including my ticket. And I had a fabulous time. Take a look at my photos below and make sure that if you live in Calgary that you find out when the next Style and Swirl event is. If you even had a fraction of the amazing time I had, you would be seriously winning. I happen to know that there is one happening TONIGHT but have no idea if it is sold out or not. If you are interested, ask Kelley on Instagram!
