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
Extreme humidity is something I love. The hotter the better. But it also means I’ve given up on my hair. There’s absolutely no way I can have my spaghetti hair draped along my neck. I. will. die. I keep wearing it in a high top bun – so high that it looks like a little hat on top of my head….like one of those fascinators.
Yesterday I found myself in a full H&M look – I didn’t mean to, it just happened. Skirt, t-shirt, belt, and jacket are all from H&M. Funny how that happens. Booties are oldies from Capezio, and my purse is from Cole Haan. PS – I loved this wall I stumbled upon. Life should always be pretty. JD
Shopping at Value Village aka VV Boutique is always better outside of the city, so I went on a mission and hit up VV north and south of the city. I found some pretty sweet stuff. My favourite find was a pair of never-been-worn white leather shoes. Love them!! They have a perforated pattern pattered and are lace-up. I also found this floral and lace swing top that I belted with a vintage gold belt I already owned. I’m also wearing my yoga jeans by Second Denim that I can’t get enough of. Sunglasses are from Opticianado – the coolest sunglasses store in town. JD
Speaking of leopard print tights (in my previous post), here I am wearing them again with a charcoal coloured angle cut skirt from Zara and bright pink blazer from Zara as well. Boots are from Top Shop, and I finished the look off with a vintage belt and necklace.
My sunglasses are a new and exciting addition to my eyewear collection. I have never owned proper sunglasses because I could never decide what to get, and I’ve always been too afraid of breaking or losing them. This pair is from an AMAZING eyewear store called Opticianado located in the Junction. They specialize in iconic unused vintage eyewear (mine), as well as contemporary independent designers. They have such a unique selection that definitely stands out from all the others. Check it out at 2919 Dundas St. W. JD
