ShareI have been looking for these pants since I saw them on Jean’s September 30 post.  And they were sold out even then – I went to five stores in Toronto and even searched in Manhattan when I was down there for Canadian Thanksgiving.  I probably went to seven or eight stores in total.  The […]

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]

Banana Republic’s After 5 Event

ShareThis past Tuesday, I attended Banana Republic’s After 5 Style event at the Bloor Street store in Toronto. This was a spontaneous decision as I just happened to walk by the store and saw a guy with a guitar. I had actually thought that the event was private, but was glad that it was not. […]
