Well, Toronto, it’s been a pretty eventful last few days. My social media feeds are chock-full of new mayor and CBC scandal buzz.  If you need a bit of a break from the brouhaha, why not take refuge at Hudson’s Bay on Queen and check out the Fashion Blows exhibit? 55 beautiful items from the collection of late fashion and art patron Isabella Blow are on display, including pieces by Alexander McQueen, Bill Blass, Dior, and Philip Treacy. It’s free, open during store hours, and only here till Saturday.

Saturday also marks the first day of November (times flies!), so here are my top three events for the upcoming month: Continue reading

Now would be a good time to clone yourself. World MasterCard Fashion Week is upon us and with it comes a gajillion (no joke) events. The big runways shows are happening in the tents at David Pecaut Square, next to Roy Thomson Hall. Unfortunately, most events are not accessible for us mere mortals but there are friendlier associated happenings, so keep your eyes out for those! If it’s all a bit overwhelming, save your energy and dollars for Fashion Saturday. Continue reading

Toronto fashion lovers, get thee to the Jack Lux Toronto Pop-Up shop! They are down to their last week, so everything is $20 or less! I stopped by on Wednesday during Vintage Crawl Toronto and picked up a 1950s wool coat for $20. Yup, $20, no joke. It’s my first legitimate piece of vintage clothing and is perfect for fall/winter. You have till October 23 to find your perfect vintage score!

While you’re browsing the racks at Jack Lux, you might want to keep this contest in mind. Continue reading

It is now fully fall in our fair city. I bought a cozy, slightly oversized, grey cable knit sweater and am ready to wrap myself up in tall leather boots, thick tights, and fleece-lined mittens. Essential for when you’re trekking the city in search of great style and fun fashion events! There are a few worth checking out this week, including two on Thursday: GapDay with FLARE Magazine and the Fall 2014 edition of Vintage Crawl Toronto. I’m also invited to a clothing swap that same evening, so I’m going for the triple threat! Who’s up for the challenge? Continue reading

Oh Saturday, you were wonderful! I hit up both the Etsy Made In Canada and Blogger Bazaar events. It was a beautiful day and many treasures were purchased. I’ll be telling you all about my Etsy adventure in a near-future post but wanted to share my finds from the Blogger Bazaar. I managed to refresh my fall wardrobe for $62 and got a sweet swag bag in the process. Continue reading
