Let’s shop: ALDO!

Schvitz. Puce. Aubergine. All words that are just as fun to say as they are to hear.  But none sound as good to my ears as the word discount. So naturally I jumped at the chance to attend ALDO‘s grand re-opening Sunday at the Bayshore Shopping Centre. In addition to 20% off everything in the store, the A-List event promised a few happy surprises and even a little swag. Woot! Here’s some of the highlights.

Our hostess with the mostest: Marilou Moles, ALDO’s local style ambassador and founding blogger of Twenty York Street. Marilou offered style advice, drew the lucky winners of three ALDO gift cards and one winners’ choice of any shoes or boots in the store (luck-ee!) and curated a collection of her favourite items, including some of the hottest new arrivals.

And the shoes! (VALLIO and BROLETTO) Hot hot hot!

And my girl Carolyn of The Fashion Fix upped the ante on her daytime glam with a make-over by one of two MAC makeup pros.

I could have stayed in the chair all day (it felt so good!). But we had shopping to do! (Thanks for this picture, Marilou!)

Carolyn had been looking for a headband to give her mother for Christmas and found the perfect one.

I fell in love with this bag (hello dear friend!) but left it at the store for another day. What I really needed was a good pair of warm winter boots, preferably ones that wouldn’t make my legs look fat. (You know what I mean?)

These ones don’t make my legs look fat, do they? I hope not, because they’re the ones I bought, along with some special wipes to keep the salt away. The boots have a cozy lining that should keep my feet toasty warm.

And on our way out, swag bags for everyone! You totally want to know what’s inside, right? Well I’m going to show you! (I’d want to know too!)

A classic pair of sunnies, the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar, some pretty little ear candy and a long tiger-tooth necklace.

There’s no party like a shopping party! And ALDO knows how to throw one. Watch for A-List events in your area!
