In Vancouver, Holt Renfrew windows are always a big attraction, sort of like the Macy’s windows in New York. Of course Vancouver is no New york, but i quite enjoyed gazing at the latest marc by marc jacobs window displays at Holt Renfrew. This is the place Tinny and I always went to when we skipped school. good times! Admittedly I never really buy anything from Holt Renfrew, although there are always many things i like. The way i think about it is that everyone can look great wearing expensive labels but not everyone can put together cheaper pieces and still look amazing. And of course I simply just can’t afford anything from there, LOL.
We looked for a place to grab quick lunch before heading to something more serious, and ended up at Smart Mouth Cafe. It is a quaint Gastown café with a large window view for people-watching. They serve tasty sandwiches, pastries, and great coffee, with very friendly service! We also managed to snap a few pictures in Gastown before time ran out.
