Today I wanted to share about a local Winnipeg gem that I just recently discovered. When Aevi invited me to visit their spa, the timing couldn’t have been more perfect since my birthday was coming up. A manicure and fresh blow-dry was the perfect way to freshen up for a weekend of celebrating. Having never visited Aevi before, I was surprised at just how big their space was. With crisp white walls and high ceilings the place is totally Instagram worthy!
THE PERFECT (FAUX) LEATHER PANTS
After my hair was blown out and my nails were painted in the perfect dark rose hue, I took some time to browse their boutique for an outfit to wear for my birthday dinner. I’ve been wanting to purchase a pair of faux leather leggings for a while and I happened to stumble upon the most perfect pair in the Aevi boutique! They are made by Spanx (thus are obviously magic for your midsection!) and they have the most gorgeous motocross detailing. Seriously, run don’t walk to go buy yourself a pair – you will thank me later! To complete my birthday weekend outfit, I also picked out this pretty blush blouse. The lines are so flattering and I love the subtle peplum detailing.
MADE IN CANADA
While browsing the boutique I noticed Aevi really focuses on carrying Canadian brands. A few that stood out to me were Sugar Blossom jewellery and Moose Knuckles jackets which are both made right here in Winnipeg! They also carry Melanie Auld jewellery, a Vancouver designer who’s intricate modern collections are seriously so on point. I just made my Christmas wish list for this year and several of her rings are sitting right at the top of my list (Please Santa! I’ve been good this year!)
Oh, and of course I have to mention Aevi’s selection of luxury cashmere products. They currently carry the 360 Cashmere Linus scarf in tons of beautiful colours and it is likely the softest and most luxurious scarf you have ever seen! When I visited, they had it available in both a blush pink and a burgundy hue that would be absolutely perfect as a fall to winter transition piece.
So what do you think of my birthday weekend look from Aevi? Have you visited the Aevi spa, salon and boutique here in Winnipeg before? I’d love to hear about your experience! And if you haven’t been yet, make sure to stop by to do a little shopping then go ahead and treat yourself to a manicure at their 1580 Taylor Avenue location.
