UK’s Ted Baker uses Petite Models? – UPDATE: The Model is 5’10”

ShareUPDATE: Looks like it’s a typo.  I just got a note from the people at Ted Baker who said that the model is actually 5’10”.  Too bad.  It would have been nice to see a non-celebrity petite model! Diverse body types should encompass EVERY SIZE, including height, not just curvier women! This is the first […]

Ann Taylor and Kate Spade Join Tory Burch at Yorkdale…(UPDATED – FALSE INFO)

…at least according to the map below. There hasn’t been any official announcement about either store just yet (though I had a feeling that Kate Spade was coming to Toronto last year when they sponsored a TIFF event.  Probably came to scout locations to open, too).

Packing for Trips: The Carry-On (From DelectablyChic!)

Share I’m in Hong Kong for more than a week and packed a huge checked-in suitcase for the trip. It is the holiday season, after all, and there are many dinners and reunions to go to. However, that isn’t the only suitcase I have with me. I also packed a smaller roller-on-board to take with […]

TopShop Opens in Canada – Petite Section SUPER SMALL

Share The first official TopShop has opened in Toronto at Yorkdale Shopping Centre.  I was able to go on the first day to see what the store has to offer.  It’s much smaller than the London location, but there’s a petite section that is fairly decent.  It’s not very big, but proportionately, it’s actually more […]

Webitor’s Picks: A Couple of Teal Looks

Another top colour for fall this season is teal.  It wasn’t a colour that I thought I could wear well at first and I actually avoided for a long time.  But then, I decided to do something different, tried it and fell in love.  Though I don’t think the colour works well on everyone as… [Continue Reading]
