Last night, Elaine Kim presented her new Lover’s Tempo spring and summer jewelry collection and the gorgeous pieces were a huge success! While celebrating Elaine and her new designs, everyone enjoyed beautifully decorated pastries by Liberty Bakery and tasty wine samples by Broadway International Wine Shop.
Thanks to our neighbourhood friends, Liberty Bakery and Broadway international Wine Shop for contributing to such a successful night. Our staff heard many compliments about how great the refreshments tasted.
Elaine’s vibrant personality filled the room as she mingled with friends, family and other Lover’s Tempo guests while describing her eclectic designs and colour inspirations for this season.
All of the jewelry that was previewed last night is now available in store and some of the pieces are only carried in our store!
Thanks to everyone who attended!
Easter is approaching fast, which means it’s time to bring out your Sunday best and pick up some sweet treats. And if you feel like sharing some of the latter, these DIY milk carton templates are a cinch to put together. Just download and print the template below and follow these simple instructions for a sweet Easter gift for family and friends.
– Printed template (cardstock or a stiffer paper stock works best)
– Scissors or X-acto knife
– Bone folder or other tool for scoring paper
– Glue stick or double-sided tape
– Easter treats
– Sticker or washi tape
1. Print out the template. Fill out the “To” and From” portion. Line up a ruler with the corresponding arrows score along the indicated lines (see guide above).
2. Cut out the template and fold along the scored lines.
3. Fold the template into a box and seal side and bottom tabs in place using a glue stick or double-sided tape.
3. Fill with your Easter treats. Gently press in the scored/folded sides of the box to bring the top edges together—exactly like a milk carton!
4. Fold over the top and seal with stickers or washi tape.

Sneak peak of Elaine’s spring-summer collection
Spring is IN! We’ve rounded up the freshest links that have us inspired and excited for the season.
The days are getting longer and warmer — spring is just a hop skip and a jump away. It’s the perfect time to clear out the closet and we’d love to see you in store. We are currently taking Spring items, and we’ve whipped up a little editorial of what we’re craving at Front!
Please note, availability of consignment pieces may vary. if you see something you like, we’d be happy to try and find something similar when you come by!
Romance is always in style. This season we’ve fallen for a silhouette reminescent of the 1990’s; grungey magic meets the modern sweetheart.
Vintage Levi’s jacket, Aldo Rise heels, Lumiere dress, Front moon necklace.
This ain’t Woodstock! The new bohemian is carefree and cool. Free flowing layers, gladiators and earthen tones make getting ready a breeze.
Vintage silk duster, Wilfred Le Fou top, Wilfred pants, Forever 21 sandals, Brixton hat, AJ Morgan sunglasses, vintage eelskin bag.
A Spin on the new classic. Trenchcoats are a perennial favourite, and we love this fashion forward and modern take. Paired with a simple pair of slides and neutral colors, it’s easy to achieve both fashion and function.
H&M trench, Gap sweater, Zara leather skirt, Zara slides, Front necklace, Rebecca Minkoff bag, AJ Morgan sunglasses.
Sometimes the easy does it. Athletic inspired pieces are going strong, and we love the look paired with relaxed denim and bright monochrome accents.
Maison Scotch tee, Press jacket, Cheap Monday jeans, J + shoes, AJ Morgan sunglasses, Mat & Nat backpack.
Love Tree blazer, ACNE jeans, Replay shirt, Qupid shoes, AJ Morgan sunglasses, Front blue clutch & necklace.

With rising temperatures comes a plethora of music festivals! We’re officially in the throes of festival season: SXSW, Coachella, Pemberton, Sasquatch, Glastonbury etc. The locales are diverse but one cardinal concern remains: How do you look stylish and still stay cool and/or warm with limited access to civilization?
Music festivals have long been the hallowed grounds of rebellious and bohemian styles, dating back to the psychedelic gatherings of the 60s and 70s (Woodstock, anyone?) Whether you’re headed to catch a single show or plan on spending the weekend away, music festivals are an excellent time to dress wilder than usual.

High Impact: Monochrome packs a punch, offset by bold red boots (that are perfect for muddy festival grounds). Comprised of mostly vintage, this look is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
Vintage striped anorak – $28 | Vintage abstract printed dress – $28
Senso red ankle boots – $75 | Straw Boater – $16
Lounge E robe – $24 | Zara sleeveless sheer top – $20 | Gold lion necklace – $22
Le Fou striped zipper trousers – $54 | BDG blue loafers – $26
