Orfus Road!
And if you're feeling vintage, check out Kensington Market. It never disappoints.

I definitely recommend Queen St. for some cool mix of shopping. Bloor St. for more high-end as is Yorkville. You might want to check out Yorkdale mall - they've done it up.

Has anyone been to any of the Mango stores that opened up in the Eaton Center, Sherway Garden and another mall? It's only coming to Montreal in the fall, I cannot wait. Luckily my sister is going to Spain in next few weeks, and she'll bring me back a few things.


Review from http://toronto.fashion-monitor.com/n...2mango_toronto:

Mango Store in Sherway Garden
Mango, another hot Spanish export, started the battle for the hearts (and wallets) of stylish Torontonians. We visited the first Mango store, opened recently in Sherway Garden.


Mango is not Zara. Period.

...

The collection is stunning. Ecru section is epecially lovable, with flowing skirts (opposite to stiff embroidered pieces in each and every store window) and delicate two-toned blouses that you won’t give to charity at the end of the season.

Mango plays with layering a lot this season, offering transparent blouses to be worn under cropped cardigans. The muted light colors and elementary lines prevail.

Byzantino part of the collection pays homage to the gypsy chic with rich metallic embroidered arabesques and crocheting. Aged metal rules in accessories and jewellery. Gipsy part plays with flowing shiffon in oversize blouses and matching bikini tops in Roberto Cavalli way. Again, nothing too obvious – these clothes will live with you happily even after this folk craze goes away.

The design of the new store is sleek and contemporary, but not in a cheap way when you go for white and throw in some metal hangers. In Mango store unusually wide windows, black hardwood floors and shockingly alive mannequins make the shopping for a colorful tee an rich and opulent experience.

The price range is reasonable, with only few items going above the hundred-dollar mark.

Must-haves: hand-made crocheted cardigans, slim crocheted scarves, white cotton skirts with lace and intricate layering.

Mango's decent, but I think its cheaper in Europe than here, but that might be expected. You should check it out though. They have quite the range of prices from low to high.

Ladies and gentlemen: We're forgetting fabulous little finds in Bloor West Village like Le Firme (for some great discouted Pinko, D&G, Cavalli, etc...), Trixie (like a boutique-style Aritzia...if you're into that), and blue angel...

ummm....The Finishing Touch up at Yonge and Lawrence carries some great stuff (Cynthia Steffe, Autumn Cashmere, R.U., etc...)...

Yonge and Eglinton has some GREAT little boutiques..
Paperbag princess...

I've never been to Holt Renfrew Last Call - but I'm sure it has last seasons designs...370 Steeles Ave. W.

I-cii is already closed. I hope Peter will come up with another project soon. TNT has some Cloak F/W and hopefully, anti-Hero will get some Les Hommes.
