This Friday you can catch all of us at MVC wearing purple. Why? It’s International Women’s Day! We are proud to be a local Ottawa business run by women. There’s nothing better than building a strong community of women who support each other. Today we want to highlight and give thanks to some of the Ottawa babes who support us!
@MsBeltempo: Alyssa Beltempo
Every month we are so fortunate to have Alyssa (@MsBeltempo) as our guest blogger to keep us up to date on the latest and greatest eyewear trends. For those of you who are moving towards sustainable and slow fashion then you need to check out her youtube channel! One our personal favourites is how to style a shirt dress 20 ways! Watch her on YouTube or read her blog and you’ll see why we love working with Alyssa – an amazing boss babe who cares about sustainability!
@YOWCityStyle: Katie Hession
Want to know about the coolest restaurants and events in Ottawa? You need to follow Katie @YOWCityStyle – Ottawa's fashionista foodie! With her cool insta-stories and insta-feed you’ll feel like you’re getting VIP access into Ottawa’s hidden gems. Not only does she promote shopping locally (which we love!) but she’s also doing incredible things with Mealshare – an organization that provides meals to youth in need. Check out Katie and all the great work she does for our community!
@Chantsy: Chantal Sarkisian
We absolutely love seeing Chantal (@Chantsy) in all our eyewear from glasses to sunnies! She’s worth a follow if you’re looking for awesome beauty tips, fashion advice and tasty recipes. Her message is simple: “we can make the world a trendier place for women of all shapes and sizes!” We love her positive outlook on life and her fun personality! Check out her website or give her a follow on Instagram!
@Dominique.Baker: Dominique Baker
This hard-working boss babe is absolutely worth a mention. A public servant in our Nation’s Capital and a lifestyle blogger – talk about non-stop hustle! Dominque is a fashionable, charitable and wonderful lady who keeps you up to date on the happenings in Ottawa on Instagram and on her blog. Have we mentioned that she looks absolutely stunning in all our glasses? We love hanging out with Dom when she stops by for a visit!
For International Women’s Day, we will be donating $25 for every pair of glasses sold on that day to the Zonta Club of Ottawa. This organization works extremely hard by advancing the status of women worldwide. If you haven't heard of them then click here for our post about them last year.
Stop by on Women's Day and join us by celebrating with some treats and bubbly all day long! If you mention this ad you will receive $50 off your purchase off a complete pair of glasses. On top of that, we will donate $25 from your glasses purchase to Zonta Club of Ottawa!
We are so grateful to have created such special relationships with so many incredible Ottawa women. Comment below and let us know who inspires you in Ottawa! Stay tuned for more posts about awesome ladies in the community. Happy International Women’s Day!
