What I'm Wearing 26.06.2009

Today I stopped by Holts in the morning to check out their blogger window display that I mentioned a couple of posts ago. They hadn't actually finished it when I got there around 11. Or when I returned at noon after browsing through the store and Pacific Center mall. Drats. I will be back in the area tomorrow to take another look. I did, however, see a miniature Tour Eiffel, a stack of magazines, and snapshots of various fashionistas including Kate Lanphear peeking out from the bottom of a white curtain.

I also ventured inside to see what sort of pieces they're stocking. I rarely venture to Holts because I know I'm never going to buy anything (maybe in a few years). But I was surprised to find a gorgeous printed Jean-Pierre Braganza dress there, because from snooping around online I thought the collection would only be sold in Toronto stores. I also asked the nearest sales lady if they carried Mark Fast, but she had never heard of him, and neither did another sales associate she asked. Way to go guys! He's even featured in your catalogue! I guess his pieces are only stocked in Toronto then. It's too bad, I was just itching to have a close-up look for myself.

I was wearing a newly thrifted bright-pink tank underneath my current favourite blazer (that I wear far too much these days) with Topshop trousers. The shoes are inconsequential. Brown sandals. I felt the need for comfort.

I just walked past Holts and had totally forgotten about the window thing, but was stopped short by the Sea of Shoes one, which was all ocean and beachy themed gold and pastels and kind of not Jane at all...

That is one serious pink.

Love Grace.

Shay: That's funny about the Sea of Shoes display. Holts is a bit lame. Sales people don't do their research, marketers don't do their research... They should hire me! Heh

The blue blazer against the pink is gorgeous and I love how you juxtaposed the color with a neutral-toned pant.

I see you changed your blog design -- it's so simple as compared to before!

I like the neons and the detail on the pants' pockets. :)
