Trina Turk for Banana Republic, Part 1: The Pisces Top

ShareOne of the items I purchased from the Trina Turk collection that Banana Republic recently released was the Pisces top.  I had thought about getting it in the warm combination (pinks, oranges and yellows), but decided on the cool version (turquoises, greens, blues, etc…) as it was more of a contrast than a compliment on […]

Trina Turk for Banana Republic Loot

ShareSome of the Banana Republic stores hosted an after 5 event to celebrate the launch of their Trina Turk collaboration where people got to shop for the looks as well as enjoy some delicious refreshments.  The collection of brightly coloured, resort-inspired pieces includes a very good selection of petite sizing, including tops, skirts (well, skirt […]

This was announced Thursday, but it isn’t clear based on the articles whether this means that there are actually two Ann Taylor stores, or if one is LOFT.  If it is indeed two Ann Taylor stores, my guess is that one of them will be at Yorkdale (long rumoured) and another will either be on… [Continue Reading]

What? Ron White Carries Sizes 4 & 4.5 at Nordstrom, Not Own Boutique

What I Wore at Toronto Fashion Week: A Week of Outfit Pics

ShareI decided to post my week’s worth of Fashion Week outfits in one post rather than separate “Outfit of the Day” articles that everyone else seemed to be doing.  As usual, there was a lot of emphasis on wearing Canadian brands, so every day, I tried to incorporate at least ONE Canadian designer or brand […]
