Toronto Premium Outlets at Halton Hills

…what a disappointment!  I spent much of Friday up there, just to see what it was all about.  After all, the mall has been around for more than a year.  I knew, going in, not to expect Woodbury Common in New York, but I wasn’t thinking that it would be DREADFUL, either.  Especially the food […]

Petite Sizes: Is it Getting Better?

I’d say, to a certain extent, yes.  Most major brands that carry petites have launched their spring looks, and while many of the pieces still lean towards office-friendly, the choices are growing, sometimes with almost as much variety as regular sizes.  But, it’s not quite there…yet.  Sometimes, certain looks aren’t available in petites at all […]

Shopping While Petite at Yorkdale: A Positive Thing

SWP.  Shopping While Petite.  It’s often a problem.  You. Just. Can’t. Find. Anything.  Well, that’s not ENTIRELY true – it’s just that you feel awful because everything is too long and at times, it doesn’t look like you can alter the outfits after purchase (or it will cost a fortune).  And, it’s hard to find […]

Marimekko: Banana Republic’s Next Designer Collaboration

It all started in 2012 with Trina Turk.  Last year, it was Milly, Issa and L’Wren Scott.  The first announced designer for 2014 is Marimekko.  According to the press release, Marimekko was first known to the North American public in the 1960s, when the pieces were worn by Jacqueline Kennedy during the 1960 Presidential Campaign.  […]

Mad Men’s Spring/Summer 2013 Collection at Banana Republic

With the sixth season making its debut on AMC in April, it’s time for another Mad Men collection at Banana Republic.  As the show heads deeper into the 1960s, the looks are more inspired by the “mod” look than the early 1960s glam of the Kennedys.  Many of the women’s pieces are a nod to […]
