Discovering CandyStrike and Elizabeth Albert

Sometimes when you find or rediscover something in the city that makes you happy to call the Moldy Pueblo home despite the crap we have to deal with from time to time, you have to give a shout out.

And that's what I'm doing right here — a shout out for Elizabeth Albert and her coolest of cool boutiques, CandyStrike, located in the warehouse district off Toole Avenue. The last time I talked to Albert was when she was starting Tucson Fashion Week back almost three years ago.

CandyStrike is her new project — a store with cool clothes, some designed and made by Albert, mostly for plus-sized gals. What drove me into her store was the Virgen de Guadalupe skirt (pictured above). I ended up leaving with a dress and a shirt, too. Her clothes are beautiful, unique and priced right. Plus, Elizabeth is another example of a strong and creative woman I'd like to grow up to be one day.

Need proof? Check out her blog, Your Life in Design. It's smart, sexy and makes me feel so lucky Albert calls Tucson home. I'm particularly excited about the relaunch of her online store on June 1. For more info, go here.

But please, please visit CandyStrike to find out what it's all about: 197 E. Toole Ave.
