At ease, ladies. Standing Armed, a Vancouver-based clothier headed by Lindsay Walsh, presented their Spring/Summer 2012 collection that brought a California aesthetic to this feminine line of dresses, blouses and skirts. 

Held at the enchanting Waterfall Building, the presentation brought out the who's who of Vancouver's fashion blogosphere and print media, all channeling a Westcoast vibe while sipping wine and snacking on canapes.

What we loved: the prints, maxi skirts, Moroccan-inspired detailing, and coral (a favourite colour with designers season after season). Not so great: while the collection as a whole is very wearable and pretty, there were no exceptional standout pieces.
