Sometimes the best part of an outfit are the shoes. I found this pair at Winners on Bloor and I’m glad I bought them. I wasn’t sure if I’d wear them enough but I’ve been wearing them quite a bit this summer. The platform toe makes the 4 inch rise bearable…even though I’m convinced I’ll be in orthopedics in 5 years time.
These pants are by Wilfred from Aritzia and I love wearing them because they’re soft and comfortable. This top was purchased at a thrift store in Belgium for 4 Euro. I’m actually wearing it backwards because I didn’t feel like sporting a high neck. See what it looks like non-backwards here. Belt is also vintage from my mom’s closet. JD
Never underestimate clothing yard sales. We love them! I got an awesome purse once from a yard sale on Gore Vale, and this past weekend I bought a top for $1.50. I gave the woman a toonie and said to keep the change, so it was actually $2. Always be sure to wash anything vintage you buy (that’s a given), and then you’re good to go.
I paired my new/old top with my yoga jeans by Second Denim ($110), Banana Republic clogs ($23), Cole Haan purse ($165), and Cheap Monday sunglasses ($30). It was a simple 90s look. I never thought I would like short tops again, but now that’s all I really like. It’s weird how fashion shifts and changes, but fun too. I just really hope flare jeans don’t come back, ew. JD
