Vancouver shopping surges ahead without me

I guess I missed a Vancouver Urban Outfitters by 9 months. Will have to check it out when I visit later in the year even if it has become ridiculously spendy in recent years. (I'm still wearing a green cardie that I bought in Austin almost 2 years ago just to get my money's worth.) I'm also missing the new H&M that's coming to town. But they're putting it in Coquitlam. Random!

Sydney is a city of over 4 million people - I know it's on the other side of the planet but man! We deserve an H&M, Zara, Topshop or Forever 21. And Sephora.

Where do I start a petition?

Ha! I want a GAP, that will ship directly to me for el cheapo (without have to ship to my parents) and an Ann Taylor.

Why aren't ANY of these clothing stores down under? It amazes me that they can have a flippin Tiffany's in CBD Sydney but no GAP...

I feel your pain! I'm in Melbourne & it amazes me that companies like H&M & TopShop haven't expanded to such a huge country. Love your website, by the way!

It is truly a beauty during the early Fall when the leaves are
changing. The place you choose for your ceremony or reception can encourage the fall theme and be a decoration.
Go to your local farm or tack store and get a couple of signs
for the equine liability law in your state and post them prominently in
and around the barn.
