It’s been 4 days since Fashion’s Night Out hit Toronto, and we’ve finally recovered from having all together too fabulous a time party-hopping around the city, in sky-high heels, no less. We’ve spent the last few days nursing our sore feet back to health and basking in the glory of one very fun night that kicked off for us at – where else? – Toronto Eaton Centre.
TEC had invited The Backseat Stylers to live tweet during their FNO party, a task that couldn’t be more up our alley. We’re addicted to both fashion and Twitter, so it was the perfect gig for us. We spent the evening gifting tweeters with official Fashion’s Night Out branded t-shirts and totes; we felt like stylish Santas – though S prefers her Clover Canyon dress from Mendocino over a red suit – and may have found our new calling in life.
The fashion show, hosted by She Does The City’s Jen McNeely, featured the latest fall arrivals from Juicy Couture, Gap and Stuart Weitzman. The chicly styled looks (and gorgeous models) were a hit with the big crowd of FNO revelers, and with us as well. Between a sharp black riding jacket by Juicy Couture, a grey blazer with neon trim from Gap, and Stuart Weitzman’s to-die-for shoes and boots, there was plenty to covet and add to our growing fall wish list.
It was quite convenient, then, that TEC’s doors were open until 11pm for some fervent late night shopping. We took the opportunity to stop by the freshly-launched Massimo Dutti boutique and newly-renovated Harry Rosen store for a closer look. Located on the upper level, both retailers will have new neighbours in a few short months with both Ann Taylor and J.Crew setting up shop this fall. TEC is just getting better and better, and we can’t wait to shop the new stores for some new autumn wardrobe additions.
Missed the FNO shindig? Don’t fret. We’ve got a fabulous contest for you to make up for it. If you haven’t yet heard, we’ve teamed up with Toronto Eaton Centre to give one lucky reader of The Backseat Stylers a $400 shopping spree, lunch at Trattoria Mercatto and a mini style consultation with us! Contest details are over here. Enter now before the contest closes tonight at midnight. Good luck!
Free FNO swag make for happy shoppers
