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!
I shot a series of three looks that I will be sprinkling on the blog over the next few days, but here is the first look featuring the Bryn Tunic (blue stripe), which will be available at Sporting Life this month.
I styled it with:
- leather jacket from Hudson’s Bay at Place D’Orleans)
- black ripped denim (Topshop)
- black mules from L’Intervalle
- red YSL College Stachel bag
- OPI gel nails (Big Apple Red) from Hair Republic
The tunic is so soft and really comfortable, it’s hard to believe the tunic used to have another life. Initially, I was hesitant about the length, because I don’t tend to wear long pieces. In the end, I am glad I went outside my comfort zone because I will be wearing this look on repeat all spring! So, get used to this repeat offender folks.
If you love vintage, or if you’re looking to add a few new/old pieces in your closet with less guilt, I highly recommend you check out the amazing clothes re-made with love in Canada by Preloved!
