It’s that time of the year again, people are more concerned about Vancouver’s rainfall this year than snow. Here we are concerned about getting snow for Christmas but we’re expecting rain for 9 months. While shopping in stores, I was browsing through the racks and I’m seeing a lot of high volume winter jackets, and I mean heavy winter jackets that are meant for negative degree weather. Going to Holt Renfrew and Nordstrom they have a huge section for Canada Goose, which people are going crazy about. In my opinion, I feel that it’s not necessary for our weather in Vancouver. I’m looking for the perfect rain jacket, boots, and accessories that are fashionable and practical. I am sure you are too!
Let’s look at our options:
Burberry – Convertible Raincoat $1,295CAD
Brighten up your rainy day with a yellow raincoat!

I can’t stress enough that every person in this city needs to at least own a pair of rainboots. It’s so crucial ruining our sneakers, flats or even a pair of leather boots because we wear them in the rain. It can get expensive! So, owning a pair of rainboots will definitely save us some money and it will keep our feet dry and smell free!
