Can we talk about the below dress? I’m in love! I recently found it at the new Laura store at Sherway Gardens. It may look like a 2 piece, but it’s actually a 1 piece. It’s making me really excited for all of the special occasions and weddings I have coming up over the next couple of months. I love having an excuse to get dressed up.
If you’re also on the hunt for something to wear to all of your special occasions this summer, you’re going to want to join me tomorrow night as I help host the Grand Opening Shopping Party of the new Laura store at Sherway Gardens Mall. The event is tomorrow evening (May 26th 5pm – 9pm) and I’ll be there, along with a bunch of other fabulous Toronto bloggers. You know I can’t resist a shopping party! You can receive 20% off your purchase and enjoy some bubbly and some bites while you shop. Plus, a style presentation by the lovely Liv Judd will begin at 7pm.
The new Laura store features their new “Triple Concept”, three separate sections of the store dedicated to different body types. Whether you’re considered “petite”, “regular” or “plus” size in the retail world, Laura has a clothing section that will be suited to you.
I’ll be honest, in the past I’ve tended to only think “Laura” when it came to weddings or special occasions but I’ve discovered that they also have a great selection of casual and work-wear items as well. They really have a great, well-rounded selection. I also can’t get over how beautiful this dress is below. I’ll definitely have to wear it to an upcoming wedding this summer.
Hope to see you tomorrow night!

I think it’s safe to say that June is our favourite month of the year. Not only does June mark the official arrival of summer, but it also means the anticipated arrival of peony season! We wait all year for our favourite flower to finally be in season.
This year, we knew we wanted to celebrate in a big way and what better way to celebrate peony season than with a Pink the Town Peony Party?! And how about having that Peony Party fall on National Pink Day (June 23rd)? What could be more perfect than that?
On Monday, June 23rd, the peony-themed affair came to life at Bicyclette Boutique in Toronto. Sweet Woodruff walked guests through an amazing floral workshop, complete with pink vases and a selection of greenery, roses and some of the biggest and most beautiful peonies we’ve ever seen. Guests learned how to professionally arrange flowers and received some great floral tips and tricks. Guests also enjoyed White Peony tea from David’s Tea and a sweets table complete with peony cupcakes and Parisian macarons courtesy of Le Dolci Cupcakes and Cakes. Peony-inspired manicures we’re given by LUX-SPA and everyone posed in the Beaus & Belles photo booth on the floral backdrop to show off their peony arrangements. Guests also shopped 15% off at Bicyclette Boutique. If you haven’t had the pleasure of shopping at Bicyclette Boutique yet, you must!
