I love wearing hats! I have a large collection of hats and I’m always on the look out for new and interesting styles. The fedora I’m wearing here is by Goorin Bros. and it’s great to wear when I can’t be bothered with my hair. I got this floral dress in Amsterdam, but it’s from H&M and available in Canada too. I thought this style wouldn’t be sold in the Canadian stores, but we really do get all the same great stuff they do in Europe. My moto-inspired jacket is from H&M as well, and my high-heeled booties are by Dollhouse from Winners. I might bust this look out again with combat boots or flat vintage boots. JD
Every time we check our Facebook homepages it seems everyone is getting married. How are we supposed to keep up with a new party dress for each one?
The Goal: find multiple budget friendly dresses
Where: Off the top of my head I always recommend checking FCUK, Mendocino on Bloor, Zara, Winners, and Cors Boutique on Queen West. Cors sells dresses by the likes of Catherine Malandrino, BCBG, Nicole Miller, and Betsey Johnston for a fraction of what they’re supposed to cost. I’m not sure how, but I don’t ask questions. I try on, I like, I buy.
The dress I’m wearing here came from Winners on Bloor for just $60. I wore it to my cousin’s wedding and got quite a few compliments on it. I like the fun zipper detailing and the way it bounces and moves when I walk.
Tip of the day: always be on the look out for great party dresses even if you don’t have an event coming up. Another invite is bound to land in your mailbox soon. And if not, throw a fancy dress party. Just be sure to invite us! JD
PS – excuse the band-aid on my leg…I forgot it was there.
