Style Swellness: Apolis Market Bag


To market, to market…

So didja know me and Gisele Bundchen are like total twinsies? I mean, isn’t it obvious? No?

I not only tried on the Kenzo sweatshirt she has on here a few days ago(but decided against dropping that amount of cash — $495 — on a sweatshirt), I own the same Apolis Market Bag she’s toting.


I received the Apolis Market Bag on a press trip to Philly (where I’ll be in less than two weeks to run the marathon!) and I can’t get enough of it. The luxe leather handles. The waterproof lining that keeps the insides easily wipe down-able. It’s just so well made — I look forward to using it for years to come. It’s perfect for quick stops into the market to pick up a few ingredients for dinner.

I’ve got my eye on their Standard Tote, too, with the shoulder straps…

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.
