How To Shop at Value Village

I’m obsessed with Value Village. I’ve written about it here, here, here and that’s only the beginning. There’s something wonderfully satisfying about finding a good piece of clothing in a thrift store. It’s easy to find a jacket that’s both cute and cheap at H&M, but getting a beautifully structured wool coat for $12.99 at “VV Boutique” is incomparable. The only issue is that the dry cleaning fee is usually more than the jacket itself. Both jackets in this blog post are 100% wool and were found at Value Village.

Saying Bye Bye to Leather Weather

I left a wonderfully warm and cozy Moroccan themed dinner last week and stepped outside to find snow! Winter is here my friends and it seems like we barely had fall. I’m not complaining, I was having lunch on the patio just a few weeks ago and in Toronto that’s pretty special. Because the transitional fall fashion season was cut a little short, I didn’t spend as much time in this AKL X Bano eeMee jacket as I would have liked, but I guess I’ll be ok. 😛


Canadian Designers at TW Fashion Week

My second Toronto Women’s Fashion Week has come and gone and round two was just as fun as the first. One of my favourite aspects of fashion week is celebrating the local talent that we have here in Toronto. Leading up to this TWFW, I reached out to a few Canadian designers that I had discovered during the previous season to ask about wearing their designs. I was very excited when they said yes! I also discovered several new and wonderfully talented individuals that I will be sure to reach out to for next season, so stay tuned!
