Getting It REIT

I have to say that I’ve been pleasantly surprised by all the sale items in Reitmans these days.  My entire outfit (minus the accessories) in this post has been assembled from the pieces I’ve picked up at from their Clearance Sale racks. The easiest way to make your Summer pieces more Fall appropriate isn’t to…

Backless Nautical Navy

Ooo!!  It’s summertime and I have to admit, I’ve been baring my arms and legs much more than I ever had in pervious summers.
