I’ve been to Toronto about a dozen times and I wanted to stay away from all of the tourist attractions during my latest visit. Even though I was only in Toronto for a day, I still had the opportunity to check out some of the shops, the ice rink near city hall and had the pleasure of walking down the streets gazing into the windows of some of the city’s most unique shops and boutiques. Toronto offers top shopping locations for people who want to buy something out of the ordinary as well as something that is trendy and popular. I had a blast window shopping for outfit inspirations as well as exploring some vintage shops that I never even heard of before. I can’t wait to visit Toronto once again because this city is full of unique and exciting for bloggers, stylists and people who just need a little getaway.
Of course, I had to step inside the NYX store in Toronto, which is located on 363 Queen Street. This store looks small from the outside but you will be amazed once you walk in because it is FULL of makeup! I spent an hour just looking at products that I was curious about.
This is the ombre blush by NYX and it is highly pigmented. The tone is incredible and it feels incredibly soft on the skin.
The Black Market: this was my first time and I was amazed at how cheap everything is. This is a vintage shop that sells old vinyl, clothing, shoes, handbags, leather jackets, sunglasses, hats and the list goes on. The store is located on 265a Queen Street West in Toronto.
Next stop: Original. This is a one of a kind type of store located on 515 Queen Street West. They sell designer shoes, jewellery, clutches, dresses and I am sure the list goes on.
Alice in Wonderland Shoes!
This dress was upstairs and it was displayed right before walking into a warehouse of handmade dresses. The details are to die for!
I had to check out a place called Off the Wall which is located on 450 Queen Street in Toronto. Not only does this shop sell cool art, they also provide custom framing, offer printing services and do art consulting. I didn’t take too many pictures here because it’s better to see all of the art in person and I didn’t want to get kicked out lol
Last stop: Nathan Phillips Square Ice Rink! This was the highlight of my day in Toronto and I was lucky enough to share that experience with my boyfriend. I had such an incredible time in Toronto and like I said at the beginning of this post, can’t wait to visit again!
