Kate Spade Yorkville Grand Opening!

Yorkville, Toronto. The most fashionable place in the city, home to hundreds of designers, boutique shops and restaurants – if you’re looking for a statement piece, this is where you’re going to find it. I was met with an exciting surprise today as I walked through the little streets to reach Bloor – Kate Spade has opened up a Yorkville location!

Today was the grand opening, what lucky timing! And I must say, I was impressed by this new addition. The shop captures the youthfulness and effervescence of Yorkville perfectly with all its big windows and bright colours. Kate Spade designs are always so colourful! I guess that’s why the motto is…

I just had to try on this purple dress and colourful spade necklace!

Sitting in the window seat, I realized again why I love Toronto. It’s such a beautiful, bustling city with the excitement of New York and the safety of Canada…perfect! There are so many gems, hidden and otherwise, that lie in this crown of Ontario, and I feel lucky to live so close to them.

Back in my own clothes, I hung out with the mannequins a bit, striking some poses like the best of ’em and enjoying the air-conditioned reprieve from the 31-degree-Celsius weather. When it’s hot in Toronto, it’s HOT!

I love all the neon work in this store! It’s so festive and adds a really nice, retro feel. Maybe I’ll get some for my house and blog by the neon light. :P

HOW ADORABLE are these little coin purses?!? I’m in love. They’re so cute I could just eat them up! ;D Kate Spade’s summer 2013 collection has a lot of cute yummy treat-inspired accessories like these coin purses and the “FLAVORS” bag below.

Hey, remember what I said about finding a statement piece? Here it is! This “OFFWEGO” license plate is actually a clutch purse! It’s super cute and actually holds quite a bit. I’d love to style this with a bright red dress and big black sunhat.

Alright, as the purse says, off we go! What an awesome grand opening. On the way out of the store I noticed this sign below that says, “See you later New York, Hello Toronto!” That’s right, Toronto is where it’s at. Welcome to Yorkville!
