That’s me on Desigual’s website

That's me in the lower left corner wearing the Desigual Ethnic Deluxe jean jacket. I took the photo to model the jacket for a customer, who wanted to see what it looked like on me -- she later bought the jacket.

Jackie.1 Jackie2 Jackie3I was surprised to see myself on Desigual’s website this week under its #MyDesigual section. And your photo can be featured there too. Just take a photo of yourself and post on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #MyDesigual and you might see your photo be featured in its collection of customers modelling their latest Desigual purchases.

desigual-one-million-fansLast fall, Desigual did a makeover of Angel, which now is a Desigual Wow Shop —  the first Desigual boutique in Vancouver.

For those heading somewhere warm this winter, we still have some Desigual summer dresses, men’s short-sleeved shirts and shorts, as well as Desigual sandals & flip-flops.

Angel also has Desigual rain boots on sale at 40% off, as well as 30% off the other Spanish brands we have in stock at our store in Gastown — Smash!, Paramita & Compañía Fantástica.

We ship worldwide, including free shipping in Canada for purchases of $250.

And finally, Angel specializes in custom hand-painted clothing, including a new batch of fabulous kids T-shirts painted by Justine Brown, who used to paint for Angel when the store was on Robson Street:

carrall&powell.1886 Angel Vancouver is located at No. 2 Powell Street in the Gastown district of Vancouver, Canada. We are on the corner of Powell & Carrall Street in Maple Tree Square, where Vancouver began.  The photo above shows what the location of my store looked like in 1886.

Today’s video is a flashback to 1965 with the San Francisco group The Beau Brummels, performing on the seminal Sixties TV show Shindig!

I saw the Beau Brummels in Vancouver back in the Sixties. They were the opening act, along with The Knickerbockers, for Sonny & Cher, whose big hit then was I Got You Babe, now considered one of the greatest duets of all time:

Sonny wrote this song for Cher, Bang Bang, released in 1966:

Frank Sinatra‘s daughter, Nancy Sinatra, released this version of Bang Bang (this is the remix by Robin Skouteris & Pat Scott) the same year:

Fast forward 50 years, and here’s a song with the same name by British singer Jessie J, American singer Ariana Grande and Trinidadian rapper Nicki Minaj:

And here’s the title track to the 2014 Indian movie, Bang Bang!, featuring Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif:
