Notes on Nordstrom Eaton Centre: Likes and Dislikes

I went back to Nordstrom at the Toronto Eaton Centre this past weekend (so I can get the security tags taken off) and checked out the store in a bit more detail.  All in all, it’s a great place to shop – a happy medium between a The Bay (well, a more “typical” store, anyway […]

Nordstrom Eaton Centre Pre-Open Gala

Nordstrom held a pre-opening gala at their Eaton Centre store on Wednesday featuring shopping, fashion shows as well as delicious bites.  Proceeds, which totalled over $270,000, are going to various organizations including the Hospital for Sick Children, Covenant House and Women’s College Hospital. A (small) crowd shot Shot from the fashion show featuring interesting headgear […]

J. Crew Phases Out Petites In Stores…Again

The other day, I trekked from my barre class at the King/University area to the Eaton Centre.  Whenever I’m at that mall, I make my usual stops, which often includes J. Crew.  After the December holiday season, I noticed that the store started carrying a small selection of petite sizes.  Good news for a short […]

Hyba: Active Wear for MOST SIZES…including HEIGHTS!

Hyba is a new brand of active wear by Reitmans that has recently launched across Canada.  Unlike many other national brands, Hyba, which has taken over some Smartset stores (also owned by Reitmans), carries a very wide range of sizes, from XS to 3X and inseam lengths varying from 28″ to 34″.  While smaller sizes […]

Petites at J. Crew Brick and Mortar Stores!

Well, at Yorkdale and the Eaton Centre in Toronto, anyway.  I am unsure about petite availability in other cities.  While the collection is very small (for example, only two washes in the Toothpick jean, perhaps three style of dresses and a handful of Tippi sweaters were among the pieces available).  We shorter women no longer […]

Stores That Need to Come to Yorkville!

With all the construction in Yorkville, I’m amazed people are still coming.  But I think the nasty construction in the area is deterring some stores from opening here sooner.  That, and, of course, the lack of space (which is an issue in other parts of downtown Toronto as well).  But now that Nine West is […]

Long Weekend Traditions: Monday Brunch and Cupcakes

My husband and I have a tradition each holiday weekend.  We have brunch at one particular restaurant.  It’s not exactly a fancy place – in fact, it’s a small chain of breakfast joints called Eggspectation.  And with the exception of the few months the Toronto location moved and was renovating its new spot, we’ve been […]

Mixed Feelings About UNIQLO’s Entrance to Canada

Yesterday, it was announced that UNIQLO, a Japanese fast fashion chain, will open its first Toronto stores in 2016.  One location will be at the Eaton Centre, located on the Dundas side (i.e. opposite end to H&M), while the other will be part of Yorkdale Shopping Centre’s new wing.  Many fashionistas I know are extremely […]

Ted Baker Eaton Centre: Opens November 1

I had the wonderful opportunity to stop into a media preview of Toronto’s second Ted Baker store at the Eaton Centre last night before heading off to the opera.  The new store, located next to Harry Rosen on the south side of the third floor, is probably a bit smaller than the Yorkdale location.  According […]

Saks at Yonge and Queen? Really?

UPDATE: It seems that the Yonge/Bloor spot has been abandoned (for now, anyway) and the Queen Street store will be 150,000 square feet – half the size of the originally planned Yonge/Bloor store.  It is going to be very interesting! According to the Globe and Mail, Saks is coming to the Eaton Centre, on Yonge […]
