That moment when you finally realize what looks good on you is a bit of a revelation. It took me about forty years but once I got there it made shopping a loteasier and way more efficient. Those shift dresses that I love (but look terrible on me) now stay on the rack while anything that tends to emphasize my waist makes it into the change room.
There’s a store in Toronto called Shopgirls that takes a lot of the guesswork about what to wear. The owner, Michelle Germain, has based her store around buying clothes for the shape of your body rather than just passing trends. She’ll help you figure out what shape you are and then guide you to styles that emphasize your best assets.
(Personally, I always reach for designer Veronique Miljkovitch.)
Shopgirls has recently opened up a long-term pop-up further down Queen Street close to Ossington. In celebration, she is offering one free outfit a month for the rest of 2016 to one lucky person. All you need to do is go down to the store (982 Queen Street West) and sign-up.
Oh and did I mention that she only carries Canadian designers. Support our local talent.
