Last week was a crazy one, and my blog posting schedule took a hit…I didn’t attend any previews, parties, or launches, choosing to deal with some crazy stressful life stuff instead. But when I learned that Michael Kors would be stopping by his new Bloor St boutique, I knew I couldn’t miss it…no matter how busy I was!
At the party, the designer danced the night away to the beats played by the gorgeous Alexandra Richards (clad in Kors, of course), autographed a couple of his bags for the awe-struck customers, and mingled with the attendees and staff members of the boutique. Full of energy and always with that toothy grin at the ready, Kors was sure fun to observe, and my friend Sharon and I even got to grab a pic with our fave Project Runway ex-judge before he drove away into the night. Not bad for a Wednesday. Not bad at all.
After the designer’s departure, the crowd thinned out, and I actually got to check out the store, which was bright and airy, and stocked to the brim with neon bags, pretty summer shoes, and lovely modern American classics (as well as edgier pieces) which we’ve come to expect of Michael Kors‘ signature line. I pawed at some black and white purses, which would be a perfect addition to anyone’s wardrobe this season, but at the end of the night, just meeting the designer and watching him get down to old school Michael Jackson was enough fun for one night.
If you are curious to check out the new Michael Kors boutique in Yorkville, it’s located on 131 Bloor St West. Happy Shopping!
