So now that I've finished my comprehensive coverage of Full Figured Fashion Week, I can go back to the traditional OOTD posts! I had a meeting with a professor I'm doing some research for in Toronto yesterday, and I decided I wanted to look cute for it so I wore this vintage inspired look. Like for my conference in May, I wanted to look professional and put-together, but still *me* and I think I pulled it off. My professor complimented me and everything!
Here's what I wore to my meeting:
|Dress - Forever 21+ (not available on the Canadian webstore yet, only on the US one)/Cardigan - Traded from Big, Fat Toronto Clothing Swap/Shoes - Re/Dress NYC (I think they were originally from Target)/Bracelet and Purse- Gifted/Necklace - Ardene/Sunglasses - ASOS|
The first great store I came across was called Lady Mosquito. All of their fantastic accessories are handmade, imported from Peru and are amazing. So colourful that they are sure to brighten anyone's day. Here's their website. They ship internationally.
The second cool store I found was called House of Vintage. It's in the Parkdale area and they have a bunch of really awesome vintage finds, but this store is a little on the pricier side (just a word to the wise!). But they have some amazing Halston scarves in the display case. LOVE.
The third and my favourite of the group was a store which I've passed on many occasions, not realizing how exceptional it was. The display in the front window doesn't do much to represent what's on the inside, and maybe that's why it's always got such good stuff (they're a well-kept secret). It's a vintage store and even though I promised myself I was only window shopping, I left with two hats. Vintage hats are usually like $75 and up. I got 2 hats for $25! I couldn't just leave them there. So awesome. It's affordable vintage, finally! This store is owned by the same people as Black Market further east on Queen St., and it's called Public Butter.
So I think that's about it for this post... Today is the last day for my giveaway, so enter now!
