Deals of the Day
Back in the day, the end of July meant only one thing for teenaged girls: the arrival of the enormous Seventeen magazine “Back to School” issue on newsstands. It was as important to us as Vogue’s own September issue, heralding both the end of long, lazy summer days and the arrival of the annual fantasy that involved hanging around handsome boys while wearing the coolest new clothes, as red and orange maple leaves drifted softly down around us. It might have been 30 degrees outside but we would drool over the fashion spreads of layered wood sweaters, scarves, crisp blouses, boots, and of course, menswear.
It’s possible to relive that excitement at the end of July 2021, by scanning our favourite Canadian clothing brands for sale items from last winter’s collection.
▪️ At Toronto’s Desserts & Skirts you’ll find long-sleeved tops, tunics, and dresses to take you through til next Spring, all marked down significantly. The Celeste Dress in Maroon or Teal Floral is self-described as “happiness in a dress,” and we don’t disagree. Floral pattern: check. Cozy fabric: check. Pockets. Check. It’s now $59 down from $145.
▪️ Over at Melow, we’re pretty much in love with the high waist and straight silhouette of the Bernadette midi skirt. At $108.50 on sale it’s a higher price point than some, but this skirt feels like a classic whose style will endure for many seasons to come.
▪️ The Rock Steady Pants by Annie 50 are a corduroy wide leg dream of trouser that could have leapt off the pages of those old Seventeen mags, yet they look very fresh and very 2021. Maybe it’s all the sweats and lounge pants we’ve been wearing (no judgement) but these structured pants look amazing. There are only a few left in limited sizes but you can grab them now for $118 (down from $195). It's worth checking the rest of the Last Chance tab for other discounted pieces.
