Veering into the very behind the scenes on this blog post. So courtesy of a friend, I got to go on what I consider to be quite the haul on Monday.
It was quite the adventure and I was like a fish out of water, high end brands are stuff I see in magazines but not in my closet LOL. Nothing against them but $50 jeans make my heart pound and me sweat. I was definitely in my element as the adventure started with our stop at a Value Village where I picked up a huge bag of goodness for $25!!! And yes that is a knockoff Dior bag that I’ll put up for grabs once I’ve tried it out a time or two for spring.
From there it was on to the surprise shopping location aka Toronto Premium Outlets. Where I, as a far girl, figured I’d get purses and some jewellery but did far better. (FYI, I’m a size 14-16 and there are no plus size speciality shops currently here.) I got lucky at La Vie En Rose with 4 new bras (two of them under $20) and a buy one get one 50%! And though they aren’t exactly what I’d been looking for, they fit and followed me home along with a fluffy mini poncho.
So I need jeans. I hate shopping. I have a hard time finding jeans, or clothes in general. I was going to walk by Lucky Brand and I have no words for how glad I am my friend said go see because the two best fitting pair of jeans EVER followed me out. It’s actually one pair in 2 fabric weights and colours but holy wow! They fit amazing and were buy one get one half price and the shopgirls were amazing!
We were in and out of almost every shop, though I stayed clear of the Body Shop and the Second Cup LOL. I also got to touch my first Burberry and Kate Spade bags really wanted me to bring them home! I did find a bag at Bentley on for 70% off so yay!!
And almost as shocking as the high end shopping was the addition to my 2 pairs of shorts with these I found at Walmart. And of course more candles, because candles and coffee are life.
So that’s my adventure / haul. I did a vlog of it on my rainecaster YouTube that you can watch here.
P.S. I’m working on links and updates so look forward to another blog post very soon with info on the streams, shops & casts.
