Flashback Friday!

We wanted to have a little FUN on this Flashback Friday and give you an insider's look at a buying trip in New York City. Back in February Gail-Lynn, Brianna, and Jennifer spent three fashion-filled days in the Big Apple. Two of fashion's largest trade shows, Coterie and D&A took up most of their time, along with some private appointments throughout the city, a couple great meals and a even quick stroll along the High Line. These three ladies may make the job look easy, but we assure you they put in a lot of hard work to find you the best for the upcoming Fall 2014 season!

This blog features a highlight video and photographs of their trip!    

Throw Back Thursday

Even though it was not long ago, we are now wishing we were back in NYC at the Liebeskind party!  While away on one of their buying trips in September, Jennifer, Jonathan, Brianna and Gail-Lynn hung out at the the flagship store in the trendy SoHo neighbourhood. It was a truly enjoyable evening spent listening to live music, snacking on appetizers, sipping on drinks and conversing with people from all around the world who share the same love...Liebeskind bags.

In additional to throwing a great party, Liebeskind also makes some beautiful bags! There's always something new and exciting from them, so come and check it out.

Shake Shack

Our only day "off" in New York was perfect! Exactly the kind of day you want to spend walking along 5th Avenue, window shopping and taking in the NYC vibe. Still trying to recover from the 3 prior days of appointments, we were happy when we made it to Madison Square Park and could stop for a late lunch at Shake Shack. Perhaps not gourmet, but incredibly delicious mushroom burgers, fries and shakes! Although sad to leave the big apple, we knew we had exciting Fall goods and a Fall fashion show to get home to.          

Sporting our casual looks: Jonathan is in a James Perse tee, Vince pants and Frye Company shoes. Brianna's outfit features a Hoss shift dress, House of Harlow Shades and a Liebeskind bag. Jennifer is wearing Theory, Rich & Skinny, Brave Leather and a Liebeskind bag. Gail-Lynn is rocking an Autumn Cashmere cardi, Vintage Shades Scarf and Rich & Skinny pants.

Bryant Park Lunch

We were fortunate to have beautiful weather while in New York. The kind of weather that is crisp enough to remind you Fall is moving in, but warm enough in the sun to feel like it's Spring. Timing is everything, and we wrapped up our Vince appointment (conveniently located next to Bryant Park) just in time to get a bite to eat and take in some fresh air.  

Jonathan is decked out in Vince, Gail-Lynn and Brianna are wearing Lida Baday, and Jennifer is in Theory.

Coterie, D&A

With Fall in full effect at Saffron Road, we’re getting ready for Spring 2014! Sound crazy? It is, kind of. But now that we’ve received most of our cozy Fall goods, we need to think about what’s next. Though we do a lot of the buying in Toronto, we recently spent 4 busy days in New York City scouting for treats to fill the store for Spring 2014.

We started our trip at the Designers and Agents Show (D&A). It’s a smaller trade show, but the best for finding new and unique collections from all over the globe. We also had a few appointments around the city, but spent the bulk of our time at Coterie. Coterie is a giant trade show with hundreds upon hundreds of booths with pretty much everything fashion.  There are so many great things to choose from and so many decisions to make, including the ever-famous…what do I wear today?!?! Keep checking our blog over the next few days to see what we got up to and of course, what we were wearing!
