In My Easter Bonnet, With All the Frills Upon It….

ShareOK, so no Easter Bonnet.  I don’t even wear hats very much (other than wool ones you wear in the winter), but for Easter, my husband and I decided to head over to a local hotel for a delicious buffet brunch.  It wasn’t a fancy place – just a regular, run-of-the-mill hotel chain about a […]

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). Not sure if LOFT is opening as well. The… [Continue Reading]

As cold weather approaches, I’m finding that I’m wearing more and more sweaters.  I actually have a huge collection in my closet (and my old closet at my parents’ place) dating back to high school (I think I still have a Fair Ilse sweater from the Gap circa 1995 or 1996.)  My three newest additions,… [Continue Reading]

Vintage J.Crew (Circa 1996): Size 2

ShareWhen I was 16 years old, I went to Chicago and purchased a gorgeous J.Crew skirt (above), which was, at the time, a bit too small for me (but the size up was too big – the salesperson recommended this size. Don’t know why). Believe it or not, it was a size 2, the smallest […]

J.Crew’s Spring/Summer 2012 Collection

ShareJ.Crew presented its Spring/Summer 2012 collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week for the first time yesterday. The colourful collection consists of J.Crew’s usual pieces of tops, pants, skirts and dresses in vibrant colours in time for warm weather (I kind of like the paisley pencil skirt (though the length is just a tad too long, even […]

Quoted in the Globe and Mail Today (Tuesday)!

ShareLast Friday, I was contacted by the Globe and Mail via my other site, DelectablyChic!, about price increases when international stores open in Canada (this was after all that kerfuffle about J.Crew double charging duty that was in the media).  After receiving an email, I called the paper right away to discuss what I thought […]

New Canadian Pricing at J.Crew Still Means $$$$$ for Canadian Petites

ShareSure, shipping is now a flat $9.95 US, but prices are listed to match the store at Yorkdale.  On top of that, you’re still charged duty plus taxes. This means that if you want to order anything that is an online-exclusive (basically all petite sizes and guys’ clothing for the time being), you’re going to have […]
