Nordstrom opens first Toronto department store

We’ve all been waiting patiently for Nordstrom to show us what they’ve got and on Friday, September 16th, we’re finally going the full taste of the department store. The CF Eaton Centre location sits on three levels, with three different restaurant concepts and you better believe it’s absolutely stunning. The store features shop-in-shops by Gucci, Burberry, and more; a Nordstrom exclusive Alexander Wang pop-up; a Nike kiosk; and massive dedicated sections to men, women, children and babies. Think you can’t afford anything here? Think again. Nordstrom stocks tons of mid-priced brands as well as luxury labels. We encourage you to drop by and discover Nordstrom for yourself!

Shop trendy womenswear at this pop-up


It was a shame to see Jacflash close their doors a few years ago but luckily for fashionistas, the Toronto-based retailer is alive online and frequently pops up across the city. From September 16-18th, Jacflash will be popped up in Get Fresh Co. on Queen St. West with apparel, footwear, and accessories.

Get your hands on UNIQLO before the store opens


If you weren’t among the first to shop UNIQLO’s signature basics and flannels for fall at the Drake General store on Queen Street West last weekend, you’ve still got time! The pop-up is open from September 10-25th. Consider it an appetizer for the main course, when two UNIQLO stores setting up shop at the CF Eaton Centre and Yorkdale at the end of September and next month.

Zvelle is best know for their handcrafted shoes, with comfort as their number one priority. And while comfort is typically synonymous with, well, ugly, you better believe us when we say these heels are anything but! Think high-quality leather pumps in unique cuts and a rainbow of colors.
