After hearing all the internet buzz about Toronto's latest shopping attraction - the Toronto Premium Outlets - my bestie S and I decided to go on a shopping date and check it out. I took pics to share here - so that we could virtually shop together - hope you enjoy the sneak peek!
The main entrance - the layout is SO similar to the premium outlets I have visited in the US (especially Orlando). S and I joked that it felt like we were on holiday!
Our first stop - the Coach outlet. We spent around an hour looking around. I was seriously tempted by the maroon & leopard print clutch (so IN this season - and marked down to $89!).
We then headed to the Michael Kors outlet - hoping to find the Selma Satchel, but they seemed to mainly carry outlet-only/made for factory items.
The Kate Spade store was full of candy colored bags and wallets. They had 40% off, with an additional 20% off certain lines - definitely great value for such well-made leather items!
J.Crew Factory was a delight. I have a soft-spot for their necklaces, and I finally got a chance to try on their famous pencil skirts. I ended up purchasing the tweed skirt, but am also smitten with the floral skirt - it would look amazing with a chambray shirt tucked in.
I ended up making most of my purchases at the Garage/Dynamite outlet. The lace dresses (I got them in black AND white) reminded me of an earlier Ann Taylor lace dress - and they were only $22 each! I plan on wearing the ruffled lace skirt with charcoal grey tights. The crochet top was only $7 - amazing deals! I find it so hard to resist Garage/Dynamite's classic pieces - and their fit really works with my body type.
We had a quick peek in the Royal Doulton store - loved all the rosebud pieces - they'd be perfect for hosting a fancy tea party!
We stopped off at the food court for lunch. We were happy to have a variety of options to choose from including Sbarro, Villa Madina, Umi Sushi and Subway...although a Starbucks would have been a nice addition!
We had a great visit - and we definitely plan on heading back soon - especially when they open the Cosmetics Company Outlet. Hope you enjoyed coming on my shopping trip.
