I’m in Toronto’s chic Yorkville neighbourhood at least once a week for events or errands. And I always make it a point to scurry on by Augustina, averting my eyes from the stunning clothes and accessories calling my name from the window as I’m trying to curtail my shopping… Sometimes I’m successful, and sometimes not so much.
But now they’ve launched an e-commerce site — and I may as well just give up on trying to be good. Loeffler Randall, Rebecca Minkoff, Me & Ro and so many other gorgeous goods all so easily accessible at my fingertips? Oh my.
Shipping and returns will be simple, too, since it’s all here in Canadaland.
What items are you coveting? The Loeffler Randall Rider handbag is at the top of my wishlist.

The day is herrrrrrrre! Zara launches their Canadian e-commerce site today, whee!
I’m not typically an online shopper when it comes to clothes (I really like to see how pieces fit on me and to touch the fabrics) but having received an invite to shop Zara.com pre-launch, and being pretty familiar with how Zara’s clothing fits–I have a feeling I’ll be shopping online much more often now. Plus, there’s a new app, too, so shopping on your smartphone or tablet is even more streamlined.
Standard delivery is free for orders $50+ (or you can pick up your order in store for free delivery, too). Same return policy as shopping in person, that is 30 days for returns or exchanges. And yes, you can return or exchange items bought online in store (I personally much prefer that over mailing back items).
Lucky me, I was invited to shop the new site and my order should arrive today. I’ll anxiously be awaiting the courier! I’ll post my buys on Instagram (You can find me there @healthandswellness).

I don’t normally aim to be all judge-y but as part of the Schick Quattro for Women Canada Style Squad that’s exactly what I’ve gotta to do with the Style Idol contest. Which you must enter because the prize is most excellent: a trip to the Big Apple and some spending $$$. Sweet! (Totes wish I could enter!)
All you have to do is go to the Schick Style Idol page, upload a pic showing your killer sense of style, get peeps to vote for ya and and then the top 10 will get judged by the Style Squad (that’s moi, Niki Blasina of A Haute Mess and Janine Falcon of Beauty Geeks)! (For full rules and regs, go to the Style Idol page).
(And if you haven’t yet checked it out, be sure to give the Schick Quattro for Women Canada Facebook page a look and a big ol’ thumbs-up “like” to stay tuned to the Squad’s style, beauty and health news and such!).
