I’ve never seen so many people wearing glasses in a room. I wore my everyday Derek Cardigan glasses (bought from CC online) and was constantly mistaken for a corporate employee.

Vancity Buzz‘ers Crystal Kwon, Christie Lohr, Karm Sumal, and DJ Christine Yurie (right) celebrated in tandem photo booth style. The store is really an extension of the same service online transferred in person.
