“Visiting any shop for the first time is exciting. There's always that buzz as you push open the door; that hope; that belief - that this is going to be the shop of all shops, which will bring you everything you ever wanted, at magically low prices.”

Hello Everyone! If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you may have noticed me celebrating the fact that I won a $1000 gift card to Yorkdale Mall in Toronto, as part of their #YorkdaleCheer contest.  I picked up the gift card on Monday, and spent the entire day shopping with my mom.  (I'm credibly indecisive on a good day, let alone with all that money to spend, so I brought her along for some guidance!)  My next few posts are going to be about what I purchased (don't worry, I didn't go through it all--yet).

First is my absolute favourite purchase of the day.  Normally, I'm an excellent sale hunter.  Both of my other J. Crew coats I grabbed for about 100$, some cashmere in the 60$ mark, and a blazer for under 50$.  But when I saw that there were only three coats left in store, and was informed that it's virtually sold out online, I knew I had to grab it before it was too late.  But look at it.  It's perfect.  It has a big fluffy hood, and two sets of front pockets, and a zipper and snap closure.  I feel like a little eskimo in it and I couldn't be happier--as you can tell, I was literally frolicking around.  It's really warm--although it's very mild this week, so it will happily be hanging on my closet door for now.  I also grabbed the sweater I'm wearing in the pictures from Banana Republic, which was on sale, and an extra 50% off sale.  I cannot wait until the cold weather returns and I can actually wear this--come on Canadian Winters, give me your worst!


















Coat 1: J. Crew (currently 30% off with code HOLIDAYTIME; also, I'd definitely recommend trying this on--my Majesty peacoat is a size 4, but I bought this in a 0; I would have preferred a 2, but the only other sizing option was an 8P) // Coat 2: Quilted Field--on sale in store, similar here online // Sweater: Banana Republic // Jeans: Rag and Bone old, similar here // Boots: Hunter // Gloves: Danier old, similar here

I can't wait to share what else I got with my gift card.  Stay tuned for some more posts and IG pics later this week! 

Until next time,

Happy Christmas shopping

xoxo K
