Black Sheer

If you follow my blog, you know I’m all about a deal and I find great pieces in random places.  This high low dress top was found at Spoof on Queen St. for $18.  I actually cannot stand that store, but I saw it in the window and knew it had great potential.  I paired it with a striped lycra skirt from Forever 21, a chunky necklace from Anthropologie, vintage clutch, and I think I can say vintage gold shoes – I bought them 12 years ago at the Galleria mall in Buffalo. Yes. I’m making the executive decision that they are indeed vintage. JD

Levi’s Bootcut Skinny @ Junction Flea

Yesterday I wore my Levi’s bootcut skinny jeans to the Junction Flea.  The bootcut skinny is perfect paired with flats for exploring the city on a Sunday afternoon.  I went for a 70’s bo-ho look, inspired by Stevie Nicks.  Floral top is from Skylark (my favourite store on Abbott Kinny); lace vest is from H&M, hat is by Goorin Bros., and my bag is vintage coach.  Sunglasses are from Opticianado (best eye wear store in Toronto).
The Junction Flea is Toronto’s newest outdoor antique market that happens monthly at Dundas and Keele.  It’s similar to the Brooklyn Flea and features a mix of antique decor, handmade jewelry, vintage clothing, and delicious food. It’s fab! You should definitely check it out if you like markets.
Also, keep a close eye on my Twitter feed, as I’ll be doing a contest to win a $300 gift card from Levi’s! Holla! JD

The next flea is on October 14th

Vintage Flowers

I was in a rush to leave the city one Friday and out of the corner of my eye I noticed Starling – a new vintage store on College St. (west of Dufferin).  In a matter of minutes I found this floral dress for $20.  There’s nothing I love more than a well kept vintage shop, and this place is definitely that.  They sell really cute dresses and a lot of other eye catching items at fair prices.
I’m also wearing my grandma’s necklaces, vintage earrings & bag, lace-up boots by Bass, and my most exciting accessory – my new bike by Beater Bikes.  It’s the most comfortable ride, and I’ve been all over town with it.  I call it the green machine.  JD
