If you know me, you know I seriously l-o-v-e Preloved! Preloved is a local brand that reclaims old fabrics and integrates them into new pieces. I’m sad that they closed their bricks-and-mortar store; I miss sifting through the treasures in their fantastic warehouse sales. They now sell exclusively online (sad face) as well as through a few select retailers, and have just released their gorgeous spring collection! I’m not an online shopper (I need to try before I buy!) but might take a chance and order a couple of pieces, namely the Koo pants and Rin tunic.
Preloved has also partnered with another one of my loves, Anthropologie, to create the gorgeous Piecework Sweatshirt. You can win one of these beauties by visiting Preloved’s Instagram and following the contest steps by March 6th. Good luck! I’m keeping my fingers crossed; would love to add this to my spring wardrobe!

The show looks at how photography defined Hollywood glamour beginning in the 1920s up until today. With works by Edward Steichen, Annie Leibovitz, Richard Avedon, Andy Warhol and more, this is sure to be a must-see! Continue reading →
Toronto might be a big ol’ gray rainbucket right now, but even that can’t get me down. The holidays are here! I actually had spare time today (a rare gem in a grad student’s life) and stopped by the Annex Kind Exchange. These gorgeous J. Crew pumps were sitting on the shelf, just waiting for me to try them on and fall in love. Continue reading →
