"I’m living a little bit of a double life,” says Kaylyn Monk, owner of Hart Republic, the Halifax-based online shop that launched May 1. Working as an engineer by day means her browsing time is limited and her shopping experience lacking. She's busy, and then some.
“I shop online out of pure convenience and I'm left a little bored from the experience. It doesn't feel personal and unique.” That’s where Hart Republic—a collection of designer transition pieces for working women in their 20s and 30s—comes in to play. Though it lives online it lives for the experience, hence why next Tuesday, May 20 will bring its first pop-up shop to Obladee, a wine bar (1600 Barrington Street) to turn online shopping into a social event from 4pm-8pm. RSVP early and your first glass of wine is free! And keep tabs on the latest looks here.
