My favourite 2017 trend: the oversized vintage denim jacket

Oversized vintage denim jacket

Lately, I am in love with the oversized vintage denim jacket trend, albeit I realize that it’s not the most flattering look, especially for my wide frame. But you know what? I don’t care! I love my vintage Preloved jean jacket by Wrangler. It’s so comfortable and roomy and it does that perfect temperature control only denim can do. I wear it all the time, and I am styling a lot of looks using this trend.

Escaping in Style: Fashion Art Toronto, Food and Fun with Ford Canada

Fashion Art Toronto Ford Escape 2017 Ford Canada Ottawa Fashion Blogger Chantsy

My first official press tour has sadly come to an end. And what a whirlwind it was. My friend and fellow Ottawa influencer, Katie Hession from Yow City Style, joined me for a road trip to Toronto for the weekend. I drove us in a brand new 2017 Ford Escape, courtesy of Ford Canada. We had a hectic agenda and truly made the best of our time there, sans our family! It’s quite refreshing to travel with someone that has the same interests and goals: do, eat and see all the things in Toronto! No need to deal with kiddies or hangry husbands who want to eat before we have had a chance to photograph our food. I know most of you were following our Instagram stories, and I have to say it was nice staying in touch with Ottawa while we were in Toronto. Hopefully we made you proud, and you were able to enjoy it as much as we did!

I heart this spring look: Frayed Hem Jeans & Gucci slides

Last month Preloved Toronto sent me a whole bunch of clothes, including this sweet Broken Hearted Sweatshirt in Off-White, from their Heart Collection. To stay true to their recycling word, the signature red heart on this sweater is made from the material of other vintage sweaters. It’s super soft and has the cutest details, including a little heart on the back! The ¾ length sleeves on this sweater are perfect for spring, especially when the temperature fluctuates so much. You will be happy to know that Preloved is now available at Sporting Life in Ottawa.

Going back to my roots: Preloved Toronto now at Sporting Life Ottawa

A few weeks ago I was approached by Preloved Toronto, a popular clothing store and staple in Canadian fashion known to reclaim vintage fabrics. For most, they are known as an institution for sustainable fashion who are responsible for breathing new life into over a million pieces of clothing since 1995. This Toronto girl could not say no to this collab for many reasons. One, obviously I am going back to my roots and supporting my old hood. Two, I love vintage and consignment pieces, so this was a no-brainer. Third, Sporting Life Ottawa will now be carrying the Preloved brand, and I could not miss the opportunity to share this news with you guys! Oh, and I guess the fourth reason to be super excited is that their clothes come in size XL- so, you’re welcome!
