About Eva

Hello and welcome to Barefoot & Lovely! My name is Eva and I am the owner and lady boss of the Barefoot Contessa Boutiques in Vancouver, B.C. – two pretty little shops filled with gifts, clothing and accessories.

I live in the tiny house I grew up in, with my Dutch husband, two daughters and a Chihuahua named Henry. We have an overgrown garden, a claw foot tub and chandeliers in every room. We eat off vintage china, sleep in old iron beds and are constantly on the hunt for the beautiful, old and forgotten. I adore pretty things, hunting for the perfect vintage piece, new ideas and making jam.

Barefoot & Lovely is a space to keep all of my favourite things. I hope to inspire you, empower you and entertain you. Stay awhile!

the shop

I started my shops with a dream, hard work and not much else. I believe you can, too. Barefoot Contessa is not just a shop, but it’s a way of life. When someone walks into one of my shops, they can expect to be inspired by the displays, the curated products and clothing. They can enjoy the atmosphere as they find a new treasure to love. We encourage personal style and self-love, one dress at a time.
