Full Skirts and the Petite

ShareI recently purchased two full skirts, one from Femme de Carriere, a Montreal-based clothing store with office-friendly clothing (both casual and formal) and another from a Kate Spade outlet in Niagara Falls, New York.  Some people think that  these skirts can overwhelm a petite frame, but it really depends on the style (e.g. how much […]

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]

Cynthia’s Banana Republic Mad Men Collection Loot!

I walked into the Yorkdale store expecting disappointment, that it was going to be like last time, where there were NO PETITES AVAILABLE.  Turned out I was wrong.  Sort of.  As noted in the earlier post, there were only three dresses – two dresses inspired by Joan and one by Betty – on the racks. … [Continue Reading]

My Obsession with Kristin Continues

Share I recently took advantage of my 30% off card for Coach and bought another bag from the Kristin collection, the Kristin Spectator Leather Zip tote (I already have the Kristin Spectator Willow) in ivory.  The bag measures 16 1/4″ x 11 3/4″ x 4″, a bit bigger than what I normally carry, but like […]
