Hey! You looked great in 2017

Last year was a big year for Nettle’s Tale. We celebrated our 3 year anniversary. We opened the Nettle’s Tale flagship shop in Gastown (how was that only this year?!). 

And before we breeze by that crowning moment, let’s take a moment to celebrate the elbow grease, sweat, and beer that helped us pull off the shop renovations. We levelled the floor, laid the floorboards, painted & cleaned every surface, built fixtures, installed shelves, and what we couldn’t do ourselves, friends and family stepped up.

So thank you to everyone who pitched in. And to everyone who came to visit us this year! We appreciate it, and hope you enjoy walking on our floor more than we enjoyed installing it.


But aside from all of that, it’s you guys who stole the show in 2017. Thanks for being friends, followers, and for looking so g-dang good all year.

You are the inspiration here. You are the real women who are out exploring, butt kicking at work and family and life, and feeling beautiful at every age and shape.

We’re just lucky to come along for a bit of the ride. So before you take on 2018, take a sneak peek at last year.

We’re jealous of A) the scenery and B) @wildfrolicker’s nerves of steel for braving the ice cold Yukon waters in her Carli suit.


 And further south, @foodbymaria paired her Misty with some serious feel good, tropical vibes. Also, we’re bringing in some new patterns on the Misty this spring - stay tuned!


@thefamjewels looking as classy as ever, poolside in the Deirdre

@emmahansen showing off the ultimate zen. (PS we just restocked this floral Britney, in the shop and online now!)

@rachaeljaynes took her Britney suit to Tofino for the quintessential west coast weekend

The wonderful @nolatrees, dressed in the Kelsey and an unstoppable attitude.

Reminders that you don’t have to go far to feel like you’re on vacation. @charbrowning catches Michelle and her Heather top mid-laugh at one of our favourite local lakes.

Take a look at the face of @riggbee: pure, summertime bliss. The cute one-piece certainly doesn’t hurt either.

Another local lake, another lovely lady. @constancelh in the Julia top.

We can’t decide what we like more, @lleesslliiee’s puppy or her yellow floral suit. Love this floral? Check out the Britney or watch our newsletter for a new suit this spring!)

Congratulations to @zojoroberts for looking so laid back on an inflatable swan. Magic bottoms and Heather tops go with any species of pool toy.


Mama and fitness queen @dailyroutinefitness is on the countdown to summer. Though it looks like her Eastwood hat has made a few appearances through the winter ;)
