Smart Set


We’re mid-September, but instead of layers-upon-layers to keep us warm, the weather is keeping us in summer dresses!

And I’m loving it!!! 😀

Like this cutie-pie floral one I picked for $10!!!!!!  From a little shop called Smart Set, maybe you’ve heard of it?

Smart Set recently had a CLOSING sale.

The Montreal-based retailer said it will shut 107 Smart Set stores over the next 12 to 18 months, including 31 by year end or early next year.  Curious as to why, click here.

Only 31 of the locations will be closed completely. The remaining 76 will be converted to other company banners, which include Reitmans, Penningtons, Addition Elle and RW&Co., as well as Thyme maternity stores.

When I was in highschool, this was a shop I’d visit often.  But I don’t think I step in one until a few weeks ago, when I saw the closing signs while I was on my lunch downtown.  FullSizeRender-19

Smart Set didn’t carry a plus-size line.  So I was very surprised at finding an XL fit me.

What I really liked about this dress was the criss-cross deep-v back…

If I had a longer torso, you’d be able to see how the peek-a-boo criss-cross action should work. But for $10, it was coming home with me for sure…and my short-waisted self was gonna wear it anyway!!! 🙂

Oh, the hat … picked it up from Public Butter, on WQW. Click here for other looks in this hat 🙂

Were you a Smart Set fan?  Are you sad about the news that Smart Set having closed?
