I have been super busy and stressed at work these past few weeks but the storm has passed and I can get back into fashion.
Besides working I have been planning a trip to Italy (more in future posts on this) but I’m still shopping for myself and finding interesting things.
In a run down strip mall in South Etobicoke, is a small gem under the unlikely guise of a Zellers Clearance outlet. It’s loaded with Lord & Taylor and name brand apparel carried at Hudson’s Bay. I scored a 100% navy, asymetric wool skirt for $2.97 and black, cotton fringe skirt for $12.99. The navy skirt is a pencil skirt on one side and a 1/2 circle skirt on the other. It has beautiful movement when I walk. The black fringe skirt is super fun and will be great for cocktail parties and after work functions.
The CNE is once again on in the6ix and the international bargain bazaar is always worth a look. I picked up 2 Indian gypsy skirts for $25. This bohemian style is a classic and perfect for summer or fall. I plan to wear the light blue one with espadrilles for the rest of the summer and then switch to booties in the fall. The black one I will wear with laser cut black boots and then switch to booties before the snow flies.
A good friend of mine was so thoughtful in bringing me this set of Marie Antionette paper Dolls from France. I think it’s a great addition to my doll collection. Merci Tracy!
