For anyone that's ever been a middle (or younger) sibling, you know what it's like to always get hand-me-downs and feel somewhat stifled by your older sibling's style.
Linda Sin can relate.

Located in the heart of Kitsilano on West 4th Avenue, this lovely boutique is inspired by Linda's travels and journeys that have brought her to where she is today, and it offers shoppers an excellent selection of unique pieces that can't be found elsewhere in the city.
Growing up as the middle child, Sin was all too familiar with having to shout a little louder to be heard. But now it's her store that's doing all of the talking, and Vancouver's listening.
West 4th Avenue is home to a number of stores, but if you're looking for that special, fashion-forward piece, you'll want to check out Middle Sister.
At Middle Sister you'll find a thoughtfully curated selection of goods that have been hand-picked by Sin and, in fact, she has traveled the globe to meet the designers and artists that are featured in her store.

At Middle Sister, you'll find things like Korean runway fashion and accessories, one-of-a-kind gifts, Garance Doré stationery and jewelry from around the world. It's pretty dreamy.
A notable brand you'll find at Middle Sister is Korean fashion designer Chung Chung Lee's LIE. Standing for love, identity and ego, this is the first introduction to the Canadian market for LIE. Chung's style combines masculine shapes with feminine details to create timeless and bold pieces.
Celebrities like Beyonce, Rihanna and Lady Gaga have all worn LIE, and it has also been featured in a number of magazines, including Vogue and W Magazine. Suffice to say, you're going to want to get your hands on some of these pieces. Currently, the only other place in North America where you can find LIE is in New York City.
Other clothing brands you can shop at Middle Sister include Enzuvan; Ti:Baeg; Bodybag by Jude; and Bourie.
Currently, the store features jewelry from Paris, Athens, California, Vancouver and South America. From bracelets and earrings to necklaces and rings, Middle Sister carries a wide selection of quality pieces that'll complete your favorite outfit.
Linda Sin's boutique is a breath of fresh air to Vancouver's fashion scene; it's a store you've just got to visit!
