Karen Mabon Popping Up at Time




On Saturday we had an amazing (and rather busy) day in Dundee.  With the Scot Street Style Gathering hitting the city for the first time, the place was filled with creative happenings. Along with the lovely Miss Vicky Viola, we headed through to join in some of the fun. Our first stop had to be the Karen Mabon Pop Up Shop at Time Lifestyle Boutique. With all three of us being huge fans of the designer, and always interested in checking out an independent boutique, it seemed like the logical thing to do, even if it was a poor choice for our bank balances.




A relatively new addition to Dundee, Time offers a wealth of luxury gifts and accessories. With everything from fun cards to products for a gentleman to keep his beard in check, this is the place to go when purchasing presents (even if they're just for yourself). We enjoyed meeting Nicola, the owner, and hearing her enthusiasm for the store and the brands she stocks. The sparkling wine and nibbles didn't hurt either.

We spent a ridiculous amount of time browsing what was on offer, especially the Karen Mabon goodies. It was great to see some of the newer designs in person and get a feel for the size and detail of each piece. Favourites of ours included the Taco Nights Scarf, Prize Poodle Scarf (as modeled by Vicky) and Eve Necklace. but we could go on.

 It was also great to meet the lady herself, who is one of the nicest people ever! We really enjoyed chatting with her about her designs, other designers we all love and how it's ok to be an internet stalker but that it's nice to get offline sometimes.




After much chatting, browsing and some sneaky purchases (hello new limited edition Glasgow scarf) it was time to move on. Big thanks to Nicola and Karen for making us feel extremely welcome and we will definitely be back to Time very soon!
