Winterlicious Reservations Starts TODAY (January 12)!!!!!!!

Who is excited for Winterlicious?  The twice-annual ____licious (winter and summer) commences on January 26 and will continue for two weeks.  Many of the regulars are back, including La Societé, Boulud and Oliver & Bonnocini Bayview Village (I always wonder why it’s THAT location rather than, say, Front Street.  Shouldn’t there be some sort of […]

Toronto Fashion Week is Back!

According to BlogTO, anyway. Toronto Fashion Week will now run by Peter Freed of Freed Developments and will be held in Yorkville rather than David Pecault Square, essentially a late trade with TIFF (The Toronto International Film Festival). TIFF, after all, used to be mostly in Yorville. This probably means it will be held in […]

Favourites and Discoveries at the One of a Kind Show!

I had the opportunity to attend a media preview/opening day of this season’s One of a Kind Show, and many of DelectablyChic!’s most loved vendors are back at this season’s show.  While I have some spring-only favourites, I have to say that I see MORE of them at the holiday season show.  Highlights include: BLINK […]

Royal Conservatory of Music Gala with Lang Lang

Wow, what an experience!  An extremely well-known 30-something classical pianist from China, someone who has as much fame and following as a member of a circa late 90s/early 2000s boy band member, playing at a small venue like Koerner Hall in Toronto – when the guy typically plays with symphonies at larger venues like the […]

Yorkville’s NEW Sephora a Disappointment

The Sephora in Toronto’s Bloor/Yorkville neighbourhood recently moved to a new, bigger location a block or so east.  I have to admit that I was excited about the move – a bigger spot means more room for products, right?  After all, I’m pretty much a Sephora addict – I’ve been a VIBRouge for at least […]

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 […]

The Death of the Skinny Jean Has Been Greatly Exaggerated

People have been predicting the death of the skinny jean for years.  In fact, they say that the fall season is most definitely the end.  After all, New York fashion editors have been photographed wearing anywhere from flares to boot cut to, well, anything that isn’t skinny (no, “distressed” doesn’t really count, since they can […]

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 […]

Scrubs in the City brings London to Toronto

Scrubs in the City fundraiser for SickKids was held again at Evergreen Brickworks. It is the 15th year of this event, and approximately 900 attended, with a record-breaking $800,000 raised.  This year’s theme was London’s Calling and the dress code was Posh or Punk. Event Co-Chairs were Lucinda Kogan and Molly Fitzpatrick.  The décor was […]
