Top Shop Canada Grand Opening

Today is the day!

Top Shop Canada has officially landed.

This is the largest footprint outside of the UK! So exciting.

This is what I wore.

The display is very impressive from Granville Street.

I could spend hours in here. But when I look at the price tag, I lament that I'm not earning pounds instead.

Look at these amazing shoes.

And these amazing purses and cute tops.

The way the mannequins are dressed is super impressive as well. Can't wait to see these looks translated to real life.

There was so much to look at, until I happened upon my Holy Grail!

Of course, leave it up to me to only buy tights. I swear I have a sickness.

Just to think, the day hasn't even started yet and I already had so much fun.

Maybe just one last look at these fall/winter essentials.

Centered around promotion sustainable fashion and reducing the impact of this $300billion industry has on the environment.

"Celebrating her fifth season as founder of Eco Fashion Week (EFW), Myriam and her team are informing and inspiring the fashion-conscious, and sustainable-minded, alike, in a way that harmonizes beauty and the environment. After all, innovation in fashion - the future of chic – is inextricably linked to innovation in, well, sustainability." --ECF website

As you all know, my style is heavily influenced by sustainable fashion. As almost every single outfit I wear is punctuated by a piece of second hand fashion.

I am a huge advocate for breathing new life into the old.

You can buy your tickets here.

I highly recommend checking out the 7pm this Wednesday the 17th for the Value Village for Eco Fashion Week event.

Three of Vancouver's fabulous designers are creating looks purely from items found at Value Village. Going to be so much fun to see.

Here are some of my favourite thrift finds. Hope you get inspired as well.
