New Pioneers - We're honoured to be included!

Today we are being honoured by The Women's Enterprise Centre at a luncheon and book release. We are part of 100 women in the province that have been chosen as pioneers in business. It is quite an honour.
New Pioneers: Stories of 100 BC Women Entrepreneurs
This book, New Pioneers: Stories of 100 BC Women Entrepreneurs is a celebration of the pioneering spirit of 100 contemporary women entrepreneurs from around the province. At Women’s Enterprise Centre, we feel it is not only important to recognize and celebrate our entrepreneurial roots, but also essential to record those accomplishments for the generations to come.It is our hope that this book will build that awareness and encourage, influence, inspire, provide role models and motivate women and girls to consider entrepreneurship. The stories in this book showcase the successes and challenges which BC women entrepreneurs have faced. The book also highlights the support these women have received from friends, family members, women’s business networks and business service providers such as ourselves.

8 Years and Still Growing!

This past week marked our 8th anniversary (which we'll be celebrating in the store with you all on November 6th) and it's amazing to look back through the years at how much we've changed and grown.
From our little shop on Broadway selling pre-owned treasures to a boutique filled today with not only our own label but those of established and much-loved local designers'. I can't even tell you how thrilling it still is to see women come into this space that we created with such love and care to find clothing that they love that fits and flatters, twirling in front of the mirror with pride and celebration.
Creating a beautiful safe space for women to try new styles, push their comfort zone (maybe show a little more leg or bare their arms!) and support each other in their uniqueness - that is definitely a dream fulfilled!
Thank you to all of you who continue to support the concept and the dream.
Make sure to get your name on the list for the soon-to-be-arriving "Incredibra!" by SHAPEEZ. We can't wait!

Come Check Out The Drift this weekend!

4th Annual Drift
Art on Main Street Vancouver BC
The Drift is an annual weekend local arts & culture festival taking place along Vancouver's trendy Main Street in artists' open studios and participating local shops, cafes and restaurants.
Drift along Main Street and see an eclectic variety of fine art and original handcrafts from established and emerging local artists including ceramics, painting, sculpture, photography, woodcarvings, collage, mixed media, glass works, jewelry, film, clothing design, textiles & multi-media compositions.

We are so excited to be featuring this talented local artist during The Drift event this year! If you get a chance, "do" Main Street this weekend and support all of these wonderfully talented artists. Come on in to Bodacious and see more fantastic pieces of Bernadine's work. (We've also got a store full of new clothing items that you'll want to check out:)

Bernadine Fox
Mixed Media Painting Bodacious, 4393 Main St. (604) 874-2811.

A BFA graduate of ECIAD, I worked as an animator/filmmaker before turning my focus to survivors of trauma as a consultant, educator and support worker. It was this work that has inspired me as an artist to create images that speak to the reality of the contemporary woman’s life. As an emerging artist, the fundamental root behind all of my work is the experience of being female and addressing the role of woman as ‘Other’ within a broad social context.

VANCOUVER, BC - Bodacious ROKS while Raising Funds and Awareness!

Join the Bodacious ladies Thursday, November 6th, 6-9 pm as they launch the HOT, HOT, HOT new ICEROK jewelry line out of Toronto. IceRok crew will be on hand to show off the latest designs recently spotted on Lindsay Lohan, Julianne Hough, and 90210’s Shenae Grimes!

The concept of IceRok Jewelry originated in the summer of 2006. After several months of traveling around the world and experiencing a variety of cultures, three friends, Michael Wainstock, Russell Gozlan, and Michael Kimel, identified the need for a company focused on stylish, progressive, and affordable jewelry. Based in Toronto, Canada, IceRok aims to create unique products with a slick aesthetic and an accessible, customer-based approach.

Fantastic goodie bags for the first 50 people in the door, prize draws, live entertainment by The Lucky Devils and more.

A percentage of all sales during this event will be donated to the YWCA’s “Welcome to My Life” program which is an after-school program offered at selected schools throughout Metro Vancouver to help Grade 7 girls with their transition to high school.

With every donation to this program on the evening of the event or a purchase of IceRok jewelry, guests will be entered to win a signature IceRok design valued at $1000 retail!
