This display is as equally saturated in colour as it is in luxe labels. We have so many new fall items flowing through the door that we really should be changing the window daily in order to showcase them all! We also need more hangers for them. So, this weekend we’re offering an additional 20% off all our Sale Room items. Why not get the gang together and head over tomorrow (10-5) or Sunday (12-5) to gobble up some savings this Thanksgiving weekend? We will be closed on Monday.

Some killer navy dresses have made their way in dating as far back as the early 50’s. The centre beaut is sans label but is 100% couture made, of Italian provenance. She came in with four other couture pieces that are as equally worth dying for. Why not swing by soon for first peeps and pick?

When there’s no more room for the grey area then only black and white will do. Be straightforward and cut to the chase in one of these seriously chic looks. For those of you who love a good deconstruction then this week’s window is for you. If you’re more into simpler lines then the centre ensemble may be more your cup of tea. And I think we all can agree that the mini Lady Dior cross body is divine.

If you’re a Gucci fan like us then you may be asking yourself “Is that a current collection piece in their window”? The answer is yes, the Flora Snake print silk dress in the middle is brand new and yes, we have the best consignors! You should come by to see what else was dropped off recently. There really isn’t any need for you to shop regular retail ever again. And your wallet may just sprout arms to hug you with and a mouth that says “thank-you”.

For a night out in white might I suggest one of these 3 beauts? Now let’s just cut to the chase and gaze at that AMAZING cubic zirconia belt! I don’t know much about it other than it came out of an estate in Montreal. Perhaps Persian? Being cubic zirconias, that would date it to post 1960’s. She may just need to sprout some lips in order to tell us the rest of her story.
