Outfit of the Day: My New Favourite Top!

Hey Guys!

I thought I do another quick outfit of the day post since I'm feeling chatty and I recently took several pieces that I am in love with from my store for my own wardrobe! This top has been flying of the rack, and I kept meaning to keep one for myself, but they'd always sell out. By my third order of the top, I smartened up and ordered loads of them so I could be sure I'd snag one for myself! I also finally got my hands on a book clutch! I'd been wanting one ever since Kate Spade came out with them in early 2012, but I couldn't justify $400 for a statement purse (maybe for a really good everyday purse I could, but not so much for something more evening-wear-ish). Anyway, ASOS came out with one and I snapped it up right away for a meagre $40. Well worth it!

I also just changed the window display at the store and I'm loving the looks! The navy dress with the stripe-y skirt has all but sold out today. It's so pretty and the colours and print remind me of Marc Jacobs SS 2012 collection. I will definitely be ordering more (one for me and loads more for the store) and posting this dress on the website. So pretty!

The Launch of EDIT by Jeanne Beker for Addition Elle

Hey Guys!

About two weeks ago, I was invited to the launch of the EDIT collection by Jeanne Beker at the new Addition Elle flagship store in Toronto. Having seen a great preview in the Fall, I was excited to see the full collection in the store and actually try on some pieces. I was a bit surprised as I thought there would be a more comprehensive offering of the samples I saw at the preview, but the pieces I did see were lovely. There were only about ten styles available, and I think that maybe some of the inventory didn't arrive at the store in time for the launch, which was really unfortunate. I definitely look forward to seeing more of the styles in stores as the Spring/Summer fashion season progresses!

Outfit of the Day - Black and Gold

Hey Guys,

Peter and I decided to wake up early one day when the weather was nice to go for a bit of a stroll in our new 'hood (The Junction) and explore. We haven't had much of a chance to do that yet since we've been so busy with the store, so we were really excited to get out and have a bit of fun. I thought I'd bring my camera along as well and have Peter take a few shots since I haven't done an outfit post in a while. I finally bought the House of Harlow necklace I have been coveting for like two years as well. I've been working so hard, so I figured I deserved it! I am so happy with my purchase. We were also able to stop in and say a quick hello to the enormous cat in the window of Snug as a Bug (an adorable kids' store nearby), and picked up some really amazing cheese from the Junction Fromagerie. I'd say we're pretty happy with our new digs =D I really like this outfit because it's comfortable and casual, but still chic and a bit edgy/pushing at people's idea of what bigger girls should wear, because the midriff is sheer. I think this top will look pretty great with jeans as well, so I'm going to try that next time!
