Gap Canada Launch Party, Toronto

Toronto's finest fashion and lifestyle bloggers/writers came together last week to celebrate the launch of online shopping in Canada from Canada for Gap, Banana Republic and Old Navy.  Which means no duties, no handling fees and free returns!  
That's right.  If your local store is out of stock, you don't have to drive to every mall in the GTA to hunt down your size.  It's also great news for petite HUGs such as myself, who need a shorter hem on their pants - which can be hard to find.

Guests try shopping online
Right now, the Gap Canada website is offering free shipping on orders of $50 or more.  So if you don't want to brave the mall during the back-to-school rush, this might be thing for you.  The flat-rate shipping fee is only $8 and you can shop all three stores and pay one flat fee.  We love anything that makes shopping easier!  For the not-so-style savvy (also me!), all three websites have some great ideas on how-to rock a certain look and gave me a couple ideas on how to piece together a hip outfit.

Delicious beverages enhance the shopping experience inside the cool loft space of Andrew Richard Designs.  Laptops were set-up for browsing with lots of cocktails and canapes on offer.  The DJ kept us all in a great mood, while we all figured out what we wanted to buy.  I ended up with this cute navy shirt dress from Banana Republic, for the win.  Comfort casual with a bit of style is the way to go, especially when travelling.  I'm taking this thing with me to the Italian Riviera next month.  Done.
