I totally get dressing for comfort when heading out for a long day of shopping but that does not mean you need to err on the sloppy side. In fact, some of my best shopping is done when I'm all dolled up. Here's my philosophy; looking great equals heading to the shops with swagger, crucial to the bravery required for trying new looks, the fitting room experience is stellar because it's easier to envision the finished look, and while it might seem a little unfair, you'll definitely attract more helpful shop girls along the way. I'm happy to report that my fellow hip urban girls who made it out to our recent VIP shopping party at LOFT Yorkdale definitely got the memo.
See more great shopping style on Facebook and to those who made it out, thanks again for joining us. We hope you enjoy your new LOFT goodies!
