Wish.List Boutique Giveaway

Comments 151 by Rebecca Bollwitt

One thing I enjoy about Vancouver is that aside from franchises, chains and box stores, we have a wide range of independently-operated and locally-owned shops. One of such establishments is Wish.List Boutique on Broadway at MacDonald. It is a joint venture by a mother and daughter team that specializes in bringing designer beauty products, jewelry, cosmetics, and lingerie to Kitsilano.

    My favorite accessory for fall and winter is definitely a chunky scarf. I don’t have enough scarves and I can’t find any reasonably priced, good-quality ones. Scarves instantly spices up an outfit and anchors the entire look.

  2. RubyTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 2:34pm PST

    a cute pair of glomitts 🙂

  3. RoshenaTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 2:34pm PST

    A comfy, cozy snood!

  4. PhyllisTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 2:35pm PST

    My favorite accessory is my faux fur scarf – looks luxe and keeps me warm!

  5. IrisTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 2:37pm PST

    I thought the Fortune cookie pendant necklace was pretty and maybe it would bring me some luck.

  6. JessTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 2:40pm PST

    Favorite accessory this Fall are my fleece lined tights (that still look like regular ol’ tights) from Beauty Mark. Picked up another pair. They’re the best.

  7. EmilyTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 2:51pm PST

    My fave accesory is definitely my oversized purse!

  8. LiaTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 2:53pm PST

    My favourite accessory this fall is my plaid scarf. It keeps me warm and because it’s black white and red coloured it goes with everything I own! 😀 My red olympic mittens come in a close second!

  9. SalimaTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 2:58pm PST

    I’m going to say my beige crochet circle scarf! It is awesome, was reasonably priced and keeps me warm!

  10. stuTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 3:02pm PST

    My favourite accessory is my wife! she makes everything about me look better :), and HER fave accessory is a nice Pashmina scarf! “you can’t have too many!” (apparently?!)

  13. ManaTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 3:17pm PST

    My favourite accessory would have to be my amazingly soft and cozy First Nations beaded sheep fur slippers. It feels good to have both my toes cozy, and to support local First Nations artisans with having one of their beautiful creations.

  14. FZTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 3:35pm PST

    a warm scarf for sure

  15. BrendaTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 3:37pm PST

    A pair of gloves that look good, keep your hands really warm and are flexible enough to wear while driving.

  16. LBTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 3:38pm PST

    A little handmade scarflette that fits perfectly in my coat.

  17. ashleeTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 3:41pm PST

    Circle scarf from Lululemon! It goes with everything!

  21. MeganTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 4:33pm PST

    If it is cold out I always have my long scarf and my fleece gloves 🙂

  26. JeremyTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 5:36pm PST

    Best winter accessory is my warm toque!

  27. LynnTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 6:08pm PST

    Do knee-high socks count as an accessory? I just love them peeking out of boots, whether patterned or plain black. Adds both warmth and a bit of sass!

  28. CathyTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 6:23pm PST

    Warm and cozy knit mittens/gloves.

  29. KatieTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 6:43pm PST

    Funky sweaters! Oversized and cozy <3 mmmmmmmhhmmmm

  33. TavaTuesday, November 16th, 2010 — 7:49pm PST

    my favourite winter accessory is a peppermint hot chocolate – if you see me on a downtown street without one in hand then it’s clearly not winter.

  55. Ruby BWednesday, November 17th, 2010 — 12:13pm PST

    My favorite accessory for fall and winter: my black & white checked rubber boots. They work with casual and add a funky touch to dressy and I get so many compliments while my feet stay dry during my transit commute.

  56. HollyWednesday, November 17th, 2010 — 1:15pm PST

    Hats…Hats and More Hats!!!

  57. stephanieWednesday, November 17th, 2010 — 1:21pm PST

  60. JessicaWednesday, November 17th, 2010 — 3:32pm PST

    Ack! I love this place, but I never have any $ to spend in it.
    My essential fall/winter accessory is definitely the scarf and toque combo. I have a lot of them, very warm, often hand-knit. The one I’ve worn almost every day for the past few weeks is all multi-coloured, striped, soft, matching goodness!

  61. SanazWednesday, November 17th, 2010 — 4:17pm PST

    Favourite accessory would have to be a funky umbrella, as very much needed in Vancouver!

  62. brianne sheppardWednesday, November 17th, 2010 — 6:08pm PST

    MY favorite thing for fall is probably a good pair of leather riding style boots… a seriously good investment. Thanks!

  63. BeckyWednesday, November 17th, 2010 — 6:20pm PST

  67. LindsayWednesday, November 17th, 2010 — 7:59pm PST

    I am in love with my circle scarf from the lululab
    what a great idea…

    I love accessories though…

  68. MarissaWednesday, November 17th, 2010 — 8:39pm PST

    This is my favorite time of year. I would much rather be cold then hot, and I look forward to swaping out my summer clothes with the winter ones that I keep in boxes all year. But my favorite accessory would have to be gloves!

  69. icitea/clareThursday, November 18th, 2010 — 12:40am PST

    My favorite autumn/winder item would be… legwarmers. The more colorful the better! <3

  70. TriciaThursday, November 18th, 2010 — 11:32am PST

    My kitty hats are def a winter fav…along with matching paw mittens <3

  78. PatriciaThursday, November 18th, 2010 — 6:32pm PST

    The accessory which is paramount to one’s wardrobe has always been gloves and gloves are my absolute favourite. One can just never have enough pairs of gloves–every imaginable shade, fabric, texture….gotta love winter just because of gloves! They keep your manicure lasting longer, your honkin’ 2-carat zeezees safe from getting chipped, and germs away from your fingers while you reach for cash. It’s a tad difficult to text message in them (I’m 60 and arthritic) but gloves are the ultimate accessory–get out there and get some gloves!

  79. cesiliaThursday, November 18th, 2010 — 10:38pm PST

    my crazy-colored circle scarf. Keeps you warm, AND adds a pop of color when everything is so drab and gray.

  80. AddieFriday, November 19th, 2010 — 1:04am PST

    my favourite accessory for winter are the red Olympic mittens

  84. Brenda TangFriday, November 19th, 2010 — 12:50pm PST

    Scarves! I have so many of them and they change up any outfit.

  85. AmyFriday, November 19th, 2010 — 1:11pm PST

  105. PingSunday, November 21st, 2010 — 9:40pm PST

    Leather gloves with cashmere lining!!

  106. SevieMonday, November 22nd, 2010 — 10:16am PST

    My favorite beauty item for the winter is the Avene lip balm!! The texture is wonderful and the scent reminds me of baby lotion 🙂

  107. shannonMonday, November 22nd, 2010 — 11:10am PST

    would love so extra fun things.

  108. KatherineMonday, November 22nd, 2010 — 1:16pm PST

  109. LizMonday, November 22nd, 2010 — 2:09pm PST

    Can’t go wrong with a chunky-knit scarf. Not only is it fashionable, but it’ll help keep you warm on what is supposed to be the coldest winter Vancouver has seen in a long time!

  115. MarianneMonday, November 22nd, 2010 — 4:23pm PST

    definitely a scarf…with this weather, how can you do without one??

  117. Michael KwanMonday, November 22nd, 2010 — 4:24pm PST

  118. Liz ZdunichMonday, November 22nd, 2010 — 4:24pm PST

    As the weather turns cold, I can’t live without a good hand cream!

  133. TiffanyTuesday, November 23rd, 2010 — 9:08am PST

    With -8 degree weather lurking around, it definitely has to be a chunky infinity scarf that you can just wrap around, and around…. AND around your neck 🙂

  134. RCTuesday, November 23rd, 2010 — 9:11am PST

    With this weather, a good ol’ Canadian toque is where it’s at!

    colourful nail polish works magic for me!

  137. SusanTuesday, November 23rd, 2010 — 9:13am PST

    My favorite accessory for this season is something beautiful that frames the face so a necklace, scarf or earrings. Perhaps even something reminiscent of the beauty of the winter season; for example something that mimicks the colours and sparkle of freshly fallen snow or the delicate design of frost on a window..

  138. LeighTuesday, November 23rd, 2010 — 9:16am PST

    My favourite accessory right now is my cozy winter boots!!!

    Hands down, my favourite fall/winter accessory is a seasonal scented candle. It fills a room with a great scent and really gets me into the holiday spirit!
