I think I just got my first taste of a real sample sale. I checked out the PYA sample sale (15 Apex rd., Toronto) and I could not believe the craziness that was going on. The prices are great and the shoppers are shopping bags and bags of discounted designer wear such as Like Knitwear, Ted Baker and Earnest Sewn to name a few. Go early and be ready to be creative about parking space (I parked illegally and got a $40 ticket, but was worth it!) and leave plenty of time because the lineups are crazy! Here’s the info you gonna need: PYA Importer – 15 Apex Rd., Toronto M6A 2V6 November 23-25 12pm-9pm November 26 12pm-6pm November 27-28 11am-6pm All cards accepted! Here is the official poster for the sale, click on the image to make it larger! sa
Banana Republic theme for this fall is “Life at work”, and I totally get it. Most people I know including myself spend half of our time at work so our wardrobe should work for both work and everyday (play!). I love the look of cargo pants paired with structured jackets; the classic trench coat is a MUST in every closet and is still going strong in the fall lineup. I love the mixture of silks with the wools, the warm chunky sweaters for men worn with a lightweight wool just to dress it up for work. Love it!! I can’t wait to see what’s around the corner for their Holiday line. Here are a couple of favorite looks from their Fall 2010 lookbook. sa Ladies wear….. And for the guys this season…..
