Style Swellness: Mulberry opens at Yorkdale Mall and on Bloor St.

Mulberry keychains

Now these are veggies I can fall in love with (just kidding — I don’t hate veggies, have you seen how many salads I’ve been eating lately?! Check my Instagram, @healthandswellness). But, really, how cute are these carrot, radish and tomato keychains from Mulberry?

Mulburry Bloor St

The British luxury goods label has just opened up its first two boutiques in Canada, one in Yorkdale Shopping Centre and one on Bloor St. in Yorkville. You may not want to visit unless you have plans to buy one or you’ll be in serious handbag lust. I love so many of them, but this Willow bag has an edge as you can zipper off the clutch, so really it’s two bags in one. Makes it easier to justify the buy, right? Or maybe you don’t need to justify it — just treat yo self!

Also on my radar? Well, what isn’t, but I love the bow bracelets and the bow heels, and this Alexa bag. Which I almost bought in London last fall (but then realized two investment handbag purchases in one trip might be overkill…).

Style Swellness: Aldo’s new flagship at Yorkdale

Aldo Yorkdale-112

Hello, my name is Karen and I’m a shoe addict.

And yet, somehow (how?!), I haven’t shopped at Aldo in ages (even though I have admired several of their collaborations, especially the ones designed with Flare magazine, including these ones). It seems I buy most of my shoes while traveling (my favourite souvenirs tend to be shoes and jewelry), but I was pleasantly surprised by Aldo this week.

At the new Aldo flagship in Yorkdale Mall in Toronto, I found more than a few pairs of shoes I wanted to add to my closet (but I ended up with these hot ones from Preen x Aldo Rise).

But I also considered these Preen x Aldo Rise heels:

And maybe several others, too…(Remember? Shoe addict, me).

The store itself looks great, too, bright and airy, and the design cleverly incorporates a modern take on the old Aldo logo into many elements, from the floor to the shelving.

And not to further your possible shoe addiction, but I don’t see all the shoes I was coveting in store on the website…all the more reason to pop into the new flagship yourself. What can I say, I’m a shopping enabler.
