West Coast Loungewear – Why You Need Paper Label in Your Closet

Let’s be honest; as much as we all love a night out in a new little black dress, nothing beats a Sunday morning in your favourite shirt and a cozy chair. We all spend so much time perfecting our weekday wardrobe that when it comes to your day-off outfits they should be easy and comfortable decisions. North Vancouver’s Paper Label agrees and is here to provide you with perfect West Coast-inspired options for elevated loungewear.

Designed with style and wearability in mind, Paper Label is, “created by women for women. [It] is well-considered, clever lounge and sleepwear that will move you through the day from sleep to street.  Intentional style and contemporary lines for women who are on the move and want to feel ready for anything.”

There is a rising trend that sees many of us taking our love for comfort from the bedroom out into the world. Here on the West Coast, we are known for our yoga inspired day-to-day style. But Paper Label’s goal is to elevate us beyond worn out spandex and gym wear; a mission they are succeeding at.

Their evolving collections are rooted in contentment and relaxation but aim to put style and fashion at the forefront. There is no reason why loungewear should be confined to your living room. Take any of their pieces, alone or layered together, for a spin to the coffee shop, on your weekend errands or to brunch with friends. Tanks, joggers, cardigans and tees, there are plenty of ways to mix and match your perfect relaxation look.

The highlight of this loungewear-as-outerwear style is their Tencel fabric. Tencel is made from extracted wood and offers so many wonderful West Coast benefits: it is more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen. Because of its structure, there is a gentle, draping quality to each item that adds to their femininity and coziness. There is no risk of shrinkage after washing with Tencel and its moisture absorption and release makes it perfect for our rainy climate. Tencel is a sustainable and eco-friendly fabric making it even easier to love.

We at Forever Yours Lingerie are super fans (as you can see if you creep us on Instagram!) and are always stoked when a new collection hits our store. Being comfortable and stylish is something we take seriously – even if we aren’t a very serious bunch. Paper Label is absolutely one of our favourite new and local brands and we’re so excited to share it with you.

From your couch to the cabin to the cafe, Paper Label loungewear is everything you’re looking for when it comes to elevated and cozy day to night wear. So grab a new loungewear item and share some wearable West Coast style around.

Acts of Kindness for Valentine’s Day

“In a world where you can be anything, be kind”.

February is a great month to celebrate love and kindness. And while Valentine’s Day tends to shine a spotlight on romance and couples, there are plenty of ways for you to share of yourself with the world that don’t rely on hearts and chocolate and teddy bears (okay, but a little chocolate never hurts).

Christmas and New Years have come and gone, Spring is still far off on the horizon and sometimes the rainy, grey days can feel endless. February is a month that often requires us to dig a little deeper to find something that makes us smile. But the one thing that will never fail to lighten your soul is to give of yourself to others. This month, Forever Your Lingerie would like to challenge you to act in kindness – to those you love, to those who can be hard to love, to those you’ve never met and – sometimes the hardest of all – to yourself.

We at Forever Yours Lingerie are all about daily selfless acts of love and acceptance, but we won’t let that stop us from celebrating Valentine’s Day with a purpose. Our goal is to listen to our hearts and to intentionally reach out in love to those around us.

Bake your neighbour some cookies.

Buy a stranger a coffee.

Call your mother and tell her about your week.

Treat yourself to some new underwear.

Do the dishes even though it’s not your day.

Take some flowers to a nursing home and sit a listen to someone’s stories.

Go for a long drive and clear your head.

Buy your husband some comfortable boxers.

Volunteer at your local food bank.

Ignore the laundry and make a fort with the kids.

Tell your boss what you admire about her.

Take the initiative and plan the romantic evening.

Light the expensive candle and take a few deep breaths.

Invite someone new to your community over for dinner.

Ignore your inner critic and wear the sexy lingerie.

Whatever you can think of, let it be done with sincerity and out of love. We bet that the love you give will find its way back to you. With all that is heavy and terrible in this world, let’s be people who cultivate and encourage kindness and watch it spread.

And whether you celebrate Valentine’s Day with your partner or alone, whether you make it a Galentine’s Day with the girls or you focus on all the love you can pour out on your kids, we hope that you will find ways this month to be authentically you. We wish you a very love-filled February with kindness around every corner.

Through their eyes…

I hate my thighs, I hate my tummy, I hate my butt,  I hate my….

For so many of us the list can go on and on and on. We so often spend so much time thinking, stressing and obsessing about what we don’t like about ourselves that we sometimes have a hard time seeing through that and recognizing what we actually like about ourselves or how others see us.

Armatitis

I used to have a condition called ‘Armatitis’…I am now officially cured! What is armatitis you ask? It’s an affliction that a lot of women have whether they are big or small. It is a ridiculous, and often unfounded distain for your upper arms. I used to live in cardigans and sleeves regardless of how hot it was outside, because I didn’t want anyone to see my fat, ugly, hangy arms (these were all my own descriptors, no one else’s…)

Tell Us What You Love About… YOU!

It’s 2:30AM and as I was laying in bed not able to sleep (which unfortunately happens to me waaaaay too often),  I am thinking about Valentine’s window displays. So what to do for a Valentine’s display that has some impact, and is not your run of the mill hearts and flowers…
