The long weekend is almost here!
If you’re celebrating B.C. Day in Vancouver, stop by the Orb store for some fantastic sales on Spring 2010 styles, sunglasses, jeans and Dakine product.
Look for our special tent outside our flagship store on Fourth Ave. - sunshine and smiles all day long!
Orb's fall collection is now in store! Check out our online catalogue to see all the styles arriving this month.
Quintet Spirit Dance Landscape
Quintet (OF10-504) is the kind of blouse every girl should have. Made of gorgeous (and so soft!) poly silk, this top also features 3/4 length sleeves with a rolled cuff and a skinny self tie for an open or cinched waist. Bonus: it's lightweight enough for summer! Wear it at the office or in the evening.
Inspired by the Northern Lights, Spirit Dance (OF10-1001) brightens up your day with a radiant splash of colors. Available in 5 different color schemes and made of a soft slub jersey fabric, this will be your very favorite tee this season.
It's baaack! Landscape (OF10-1103) was a huge success last fall, so we're offering it again, this time in color blocks requested by customers! The top features batwing sleeves for the ultimate in both comfort and style. Wear it off the shoulder for a look that's lovely and effortless.
If you haven't heard Adrienne Pierce's new album, 'Oh Deer', now's the time! Described as "the icon of the literate pop scene", this talented artist has had songs featured on Veronica Mars, Grey's Anatomy and The Hills, to name just a few. Even better...she's an Orb Girl!
While her introspective lyrics seemingly cut to the core of many of her emotions, Adrienne always manages to balance this with melodious refrains and a current of optimism that keeps you wanting more. Listening to her album while relaxing in a shady spot in the park seems like the perfect way to spend part of the upcoming long weekend!
Not just about sound, Adrienne also explores her artistry through mesmerizing visuals. The music video for 'Museum' - the album's third track - depicts Adrienne in a fun series of colorful balloon hats and is set before a simple, white background.
"We shot against a white wall using a borrowed camera and a lot of imagniation to create a film that captures the spirit of the song and a fun work of art in itself," says the video's director, Allison Beda. And fun it is! 'Museum' is a sure favorite and a perfect day-starter.
'Oh Deer' will make its Canadian debut August 17th. Check out her website here, or follow her on Facebook and Twitter.
Celebration of Light
You know it’s midsummer in Vancouver when people start talking about the Celebration of Light – a world class fireworks competition held at English Bay, part of the city’s gorgeous waterfront.
The lucky countries who’ll be showing their stuff this year are USA, Spain, Mexico and China. Did we mention that the fireworks are set to music? Spectacular! Here’s some additional info:
If you’re lucky enough to be in Vancouver for one (or all) of the shows, we hope you’ll stop by the Orb store first to check out our Fall 2010 line, arriving in-store this week! And of course, our killer summer sale is in full swing, too.
In the words of your mother: Have fun, be safe, and bring a sweater!
Last week we introduced you to the Jasmin (OSP10-1305), a dress that can be easily dressed up or down. This week’s pick is just pure fun!
You’ll want to cheer when you start your day in the Ra-Ra (OSP10-1304). Look how Adri shines in front of our flagship store on Fourth Ave.! With its lightweight feel and cute-as-a-button look, this is an easy breezy style for summer.
One of our favorite things about this dress is how easily it lends itself to accessorizing (which, as we know, is almost as important as brushing our teeth in the morning!). Along with the Ra-Ra in Black, Adri dons one of our beautiful wooden pendants from Billy Would Designs - available in-store. She is also carrying Orb’s Susy bag (OSP10-22) in Tan.
In terms of best summer styles, this one’s definitely a winner. Oh, one more thing…It’s on sale! Get 30% off the Ra-Ra and 50% off the Susy either in-store, at an Orb dealer near you, or by mail order here.
