Vans just opened a brand new store on Yonge Street between Queen and Dundas. I’ve been a huge fan of the brand for years. See about a dozen posts mentioning Vans here. The last few collections have had so many cute things for girls and awesome stuff for guys. I snapped a few pix but I highly recommend you stop by and check it out for yourself. Tried on a few things and went for a great red striped button down, small purse with a tail, and leather change purse. I’m gonna pop back in the for the aztec shoes below and some sunnies. I really love the leather shoes for men. I imagine my future boyfriend having a pair. The staff in the shop were young & hipstery and very friendly. Check out coverage of the opening party last week on 1LoveTO and StyleDemocracy.
I would like to get this red bag before summer. SUMMER!
This is the purse I got.
This sweater has Lauren’s name all over it.
Thank you Williams PR for letting me know about the shop! The new flagship store is located at 245 Yonge Street, Toronto. GO VISIT. Buy yourself something nice.
On December 5th I went to the SS 2013 launch of Thomas Sabo. It was at the Shard London, UK. There had NEVER been an event there and it doesn’t open to the public until FEBRUARY 2013. Amazing experience to be one of the first Canadians in the building and post the first Instagram’s checkins OF LIFE. Ermahgerd. I got to meet Thomas Sabo himself and the new brand ambassadors Poppy Delevingne and David Garrett. Poppy was lovely and energetic with an accent I wish I could borrow. David is an American/German, violin playing, bad boy with long hair, great style, and a beard. Both total babes.
There were a pile of celebrities there including including Formula 1 driver Nico Rosberg, Jade Jagger, British Pop group Sugababes and Ellie Goulding. The new GOLDEN SILVER line is all about tri-colour matching Sterling silver, rose gold and yellow gold.
I wore that gorgesous dress from Ted Baker London, with a Ted’s purse, vintage jacket, Top Shop tights, Thomas Sabo jewellery, and Jeffrey Campbell shoes. It was so much fun. Here’s a little recap of my night!
Took it easy and got a good sleep on Day 1. Tuesday was a busy day one with the big launch event and I wanted to be well rested. Here’s a recap of the day, tour of my hotel suite, and my downtown shopping adventures. It was a blast to hand out with Truc from Flare Canada and Lindsay from Faulhaber Communications. We represented Canada well!
Welcome to my room…
This old bath was lovely and the bed was MASSIVE. So relaxing.
Woke up to a delivery of Thomas Sabo goodies!
Started the day with a tea. When in Rome!
My third day in London was very short. Most of it was spent in traffic and at the airport. Had a lovely English breakfast at the hotel before my driver arrived. Luckily, there was a bunch of empty seats on my flight to Montreal so I was able to take a whole row and sleep! I needed it! Soon as I arrived in Montreal I has to get to hotel and change for the Tia Maria Room event with Community. It was hectic but I loved every minute of it. Huge thank you again to Thomas Sabo and Faulhaber Communications for this adventure. It was inspiring and exciting. Check out the Thomas Sabo shop next time you are in Yorkville. My fav collections are Rebel at Heart and the new stuff for SS 2013!
