Last Saturday, Kim, Anita, Gracie, Hawley and I jumped into our comfy Ford Escape and set out on a mini road trip to Vaughan Mills Mall armed with gift cards and the mall’s new social shopping app to do some pre Toronto Fashion Week shopping. Our mission – find a perfect fashion week outfit. Dying to check out Holts Last Call and J.Crew outlets, we entered the mall pretty much running, grabbed some Starbucks for energy, and hit the floor!
Three hours later and still at Holts Last Call, looking through rows of Tom Ford, Alexander Wang, LINE Knitwear, Prada, and so much more, the girls and I finally made our first purchases. Anita – a gorgeous Jil Sander blazer for $240 (originally $3000!), Gracie – the sexiest pair of Tom Ford heels I’ve ever seen, Kim – a skin-tight A.L.C. leather dress pretty much made for her, Hawley – a Philip Lim sweater, and a cool burgundy hat, and last but not least, I picked up a green fish scale Prada clutch, and a stunning Maryam Keyhani necklace…each for a fraction of an original price. SCORE!
Using the mobile shopping app on our phones, we were able to find our next stops in no time – J.Crew outlet and Joe Fresh store, where we did some more damage. Lucky for us, the app advised us of the extra 20% off at J.Crew, which we made sure to take advantage of!
When it was time to leave, we stuffed our numerous bags into our Ford Escape, typed in our next destination’s address into the GPS, and set off for Toronto, happy to know that each one of us found some amazing deals, and that come fashion week, we won’t be standing in front of our respective closets having nothing to wear!
