Please meet Guru for Life. I recently discovered this company through my friend, Heidi Munro (one of Saskatoon's most beautiful musicians). Heidi had an instagram live party featuring Guru for Life and I fell in love immediately. Our host, Ofra, shared some truly eclectic and one-of-a-kind pieces. Of course I had to have one of these pieces and I would be lying if I said choosing was easy. Each item was unique in style, print and size. It was such a fun night watching the fashion show.
I was really inspired to hear the story behind the brand. Guru for Life has been in business for 20 years. They collaborate with local artisans in Rajasthan, India from design to handmade production and are a great alternative in our fast fashion world. What I really love about this brand is how easy they are to communicate with. When I ordered my dress from Guru I wanted to ask so many questions, which I did. I was so impressed by the way they took the time to chat with me about the garments, where they came from and how they are manufactured. I am a fan for life!
FINDING THE PERFECT PIECE
Here is a jazzy little photo of what I chose. I love how it flows and there is a peekaboo back that scores 5 stars in my book. If you are looking for a fun and flirty new piece, I highly recommend shopping with Guru for Life. You will not be disappointed.
