A few weeks ago, Haute Classics, an amazing designer consignment boutique in Toronto, asked me to help kick off the season with them to celebrate their new Summer collection. Of course, I jumped at the opportunity. I mean, spending a couple of days surrounded by Chanel, Hermes, Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, and so much more luxury?! I was like a kid in a candy store.
I visited Haute Classics a couple of weeks ago to select five gorgeous pieces to showcase at their media preview which was held last week. It was one of the most challenging tasks I’ve had in a while. I was so overwhelmed by all of the beautiful clothing, shoes, bags and accessories, that I didn’t know where to start. For those of you a little too far away to make it in to the boutique, they have a huge assortment of their goodies available on their website.
After several hours of oohing, aahing, hemming and hawing, I finally selected my top five pieces. Of course, since I have an eye for sparkle, I was drawn to two stunning sparkly party dresses. I decided to go with a “Party” theme, and ended up choosing the two glitzy cocktail numbers, a pair of drop-dead-gorgeous Manolo’s, the perfect neutral Prada’s and an adorable beaded Fendi bag.
The media event was such a blast. So many well dressed people in such a small space. The wine was flowing, the food was tasty, and the crowd was fabulous. Along with myself, Haute Classics featured the top store picks of two other super sweet Toronto bloggers, Dani from Girls of T.O. and Peter from The Starving Stylist.
The event also celebrated the launch of Haute Classics’ first issue of their new e-magazine, The Haute Curator. They were sweet enough to do a little feature on Peter, Dani, and I. Check it out here.
A huge thank you goes out to Jacky, Jina, Stella and the rest of the amazing team at Haute Classics for allowing me to be a part of this fabulous celebration.
