black-friday-deals-2014
Even though, this is a Canadian site, and even though we don’t celebrate American Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are quickly becoming just as popular north of the border. So in case you plan on doing some holiday shopping this weekend, I put together a comprehensive list of all deals, discounts, and promo codes that you can take advantage of – listed in alphabetical order. Come back on Monday for the updated list, which will include Cyber Monday deals!

Happy Shopping!

Shopping: Fave Pieces from Shopbop Friends and Family Sale!

shopbop-friends-family-sale-promo-code-family25

It’s that time of the year again – Shopbop’s Friends and Family Sale! Which means 25% off almost anything on the site (with promo code FAMILY25). And while normally, I don’t consider 25% off a major sale, if like me, you’ve been watching that must-have item for a couple of months, now is the time to add it to your cart and click PURCHASE!

Below, I put together a few of my fave items from the sale – perfect holiday frocks, warm winter jackets, cozy sweaters, hot boots, and more! While some brand exclusions apply, there’s still more than enough fall merch for you to peruse…and the best part is – 25% off discount applies to sale items as well! Sale ends on October 16th, so don’t miss out and shop early for best selection. Good luck!

Faves after the jump!

Additionally, just like last time, 10% of all sales will be donated to charity – this time – Dress for Success.

Events: Blogger Bazaar Summer 2014

blogger-bazaar-toronto-2014-52

Last month, I joined some of Toronto’s best fashion bloggers (Sharon and Tara backseatstylers.com, Kimberly thesoulsofmyshoes.com, Anita iwantigot.geekigirl.com, Hawley sidewalkhustle.com, Anya imtheitgirl.com, Liane etsy.com/ca/shop/thelostsea, Jessica everafterlacquer.com, and Monica aimeluxury.com) in the SALE OF THE CENTURY! Ok, maybe not. But it still felt pretty epic. Our second Blogger Bazaar, held at Toronto’s Soho House, was a huge hit. Lots and lots of readers, friends, and curious passerby showed up, shopped, sipped complimentary vitaminwater, met other like-minded aka fashion-obsessed peeps, and helped us find good homes for our new and gently used treasures. It was a fashion madhouse, and I loved every second of it.

As promised, we had amazing swag bags to give away, filled to the brim with goodies kindly provided by ALDOArtemano DecorCall It SpringDoveeLUXEessenceFLAREForever 21Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie ParisRootsTRESemme, and vitaminwater. But even better than free swag, some of the deals were just too incredible to pass up. One lucky girl scored a gently-used Burberry trench for less than $200. Another picked up a pair of Wayfarers for $50. And of course there were even more deals on pieces from Hermes, YSL, Isabel Marant, Marni, Proenza Schouler, Prada…you name it – all priced to sell. Impulse buys, well-loved staples that sadly no longer fit, vintage goodies, there were all kinds of treasures to be found, and a lot of you made them your own. At the end of the day, 10% of all sales were donated to the Corsage Project charity. Just a little something to give back to our community.

The best and most memorable part of this summer’s Blogger Bazaar was once again meeting and interacting with our readers. So many of you showed up and spent the time to support our little event, and for that I am incredibly thankful. Without you, the readers, our blogs would just be empty shells, but you make it so much more than that. Thank you! Hope to see you again at the next Blogger Bazaar this September!

What I Wore: #YesIDoLikeCoatsBigTime

RUDSAK-Sample-Sale-Toronto-2

Not to sound like @NotCoatFactory Twitter account, but #COATS, you guys! Yesterday I wrote about the RUDSAK Sample Sale that’s happening this weekend in Toronto, and today I wanted to share a sneak peek of what this sale has to offer. This awesome RUDSAK parka was my fave item from the sale – it’s Canadian, warm, stylish, doesn’t make me feel like the Michelin Man…and best of all – you can buy it for a fraction of its original price! Score! There were so many coats to choose from, I had a really tough time picking just one. And as I mentioned before – there are bags, shoes, and accessories galore too! If you have time,  you should definitely stop by and check it out – it’s one of the best sample sales I’ve been to in a while.

To wrap this post up, I’ll leave you with these words of wisdom from my favourite Twitter account ever – @NotCoatFactory: “Who does like coats? Let us know with #YesIDoLikeCoatsBigTime and tell others about this.” You know what to do!
