On the weekend, I decided to go to Toronto Premium Outlets in Halton Hills and didn’t really expect much. When I arrived, I realized, it was an outdoor mall and it was already quite chilly that day! However, as I was running through, I found AMAZING deals. At the Hudson’s Bay Outlet there was a Thakoon dress marked down from $1500 to $300! Madness! There was a Brooks Brothers Outlet (I’ll have to remember to bring my hubby), Calvin Klein and lots of interesting high end stores. However, the one store that made me go nuts? Kate Spade. I walked by and saw a 50% off whole purchase and lost it. I ran in and tried on anything that fit me! I had to control myself! I ended up with a nice top and a big tote/diaper bag. I had been looking for a bag that would fit my gym stuff and other essentials. Since I ride the subway, juggling multiple bags can be a pain.
I came across Fever Clothing (http://www.feverdesigns.co.uk/) a few days ago when I walked into a Toronto store, Girl Friday, and saw this dress. It looked so perfect. I had to try it on. For about $109.00 CAD, it seemed like a worthy purchase, with gold detailing on the bottom half of the dress. The store only had one left and it was a size 6! I thought it was going to fit a bit larger but I forgot that UK sizing runs differently! I could barely get the zipper up…..and I normally wear a size 2 or 4 (size small). I did some searching and found the site and they do fabulous vintage style dresses that range in themes from tea dresses to the 1940s, 1950s & 1960s!
I’ve been missing in
fashion action lately and for good reason. Note to self, never manage 4 major project in your personal, academic and professional life. It makes for too much to do and too little time to shop live. I managed to make a trip to Nine West for a major stress shopping binge and bought two pairs of sandals.
The first pair is the WalkNTall sandal that pairs well with a bright red crochet dress from urbanoutfitters. I picked this pair up for about CAN$62.99!
The second pair, which I’m wearing with black shorts, a silk top and black blazer (it looks like I have long legs!).
I have to say. Nine West shoes are always a 1/2 size too big. I initially thought it might have been certain designs but after purchasing a few pairs, I believe otherwise.
Once things settle down and I’m back to my normal non-stressed out and crying self. I’ll be able to post more often. I’m heading to a wedding in September, so be on the lookout for a posting on wedding guest fashion!
I’ll be MIA for a few weeks, big news to come…
It’s another crazy month or so, getting together projects and getting ready for doing a webinar…once this madness is over, I’ll finally get a chance to update reviews on all the nifty clothing, jewellery and shoes I’ve amassed over the past month or so!
Lately, I’ve become obsessed with find any infographic imaginable! I’ve been plotting one for awhile, when I have extra time, I’ll be squirreled away on my computer on Adobe Illustrator…
Thanks to my structural engineer boyfriend, I’ve become fascinated with the design of buildings. I came across this posting via buzzfeed and now I’ve made note: MUST VISIT THESE PLACES!!!
