canadian tuxedo

Hi All,
I'm finally back in Toronto after what seems like years (but in reality was only 2 long weekends) away. Last weekend I was in Montreal, and this past weekend I visited Halifax for the first time! I promised when I came back from Montreal I'd have a list of my favourite spots, so here are some of my shopping favs:
George & Jane - 5364 St. Laurent
Friperie St Laurent - 3976 St Laurent (where I picked up the most incredible Mongolian fur vest)
Les Etoffe - 5253 St Laurent
Unicorn - 5135 St Laurent (where they snapped me for their blog here)
Eva B - 2013 St Laurent (don't go unless you're prepared to dig, which I wasn't)
Boheme - 206 St. Viateur
Annex Vintage - 56 St. Viateur (probably my fav. vintage store there)
Swing - 151 des pins E
Memento - 3678 St. Denis

Apparently in other parts of the world, double denim is referred to as a Canadian Tuxedo. As offensive as that is, I decided to wear one anyways. I am absolutely obsessed with these Gap jeggings and I have them in 2 other colours. I'm also wearing a vintage Coach bag, Miu Miu clogs and a thrifted top.


I've got so many new things to blog about, so look out for more frequent postings in the next few weeks. Also, don't forget to enter the Shopbop giveaway before it ends on Thursday, October 28th!

  8. I've never heard of that? But you've done denim on denim brilliantly! It looks so casually stylish especially with the miu miu clogs.

  9. here is Australia I've always known it to be a "Texan Tuxedo" which has much better alliteration and makes far more sense in my opinion :)

  29. I just came across your blog and was so excited to discover you are Canadian - it's always exciting to find fellow Canadian bloggers in general, but to find an impeccably styled (and might I add STUNNING!) Canadian blogger is extra exciting! Not sure how I haven't seen this before, but very glad I found it! Following through bloglovin'!

  33. I love the mix of denim!!! In Texas if the denim matches, they call it the rancher's tuxedo...and I've actually seen ranchers wearing them at a funeral. Sadly it doesn't look as chic as you!
