Every Canadian must know that the Duke and Duchess or Cambridge William and Catherine stopped by Canada for a massive 9 day tour last week.

Bring On the Summer Sales!

I absolutely love this time of year because simply, every store has a sale! Right now, when it's the middle of the summer, stores tend to have further reductions so they can bring in the new Fall/Winter collections. Some people believe that sales are sales, and there will always be sales every year, but when it comes to something that you've been eye-ing the whole season and could never get the urge to actually take action and purchase it, maybe now is the perfect time! Click on to read current sales happening around Toronto!

Proenza Schouler Fall 2011 Trunk Show @ The Bay

I really do apologize for the lack of blog posts lately-I've been extremely occupied finishing my last two courses before I graduate from University. It's going to be a very busy month and a half for me! Then I'm done! Woohoo! Well, due to my lack of blog posts, there are many events and stories that I will be posting soon, so don't fret; I'm not going away!

So a little while ago, I went to the Proenza Schouler Fall 2011 Trunk Show event at The Room at The Bay. I was extremely excited as the designers will be present as well, but unfortunately I missed out on the special gala the night before, and opted to only take pictures of the stunning F/W 2011 RTW and accessories offered by the coveted designer brand the day after. Better than nothing, right? Of course!
