You caught a glimpse of this top in my last video, but I wanted to devote a full post to it because the backstory is so much fun. On my first morning in Toronto, I decided to take a stroll around the block before getting ready for the day. Being an avid explorer and adventure-seeker, I couldn’t keep my jaunt to just a block. Pretty soon, I was thoroughly lost, but having a terrific time and making new friends.
That’s when I happened onto an adorable little market with handmade items from India. The woman running it was especially charming. I couldn’t resist trying on some of her pieces. While I did, she offered style tips and divulged little nuggets of wisdom like… “Cake is really good, but too much of it gives you a stomach ache. I would know.”
Then, even though my college days are past, she decided to give me the “college discount.” My top came in at the grand total of $10! I know, big spender! And I got two summery skirts that will be great for cruise season. Each was only $5.
Fortunately, while I was in Toronto the weather was enormously warm, so I got to trot out my new pieces.
