We may celebrate Thanksgiving at different times but as our American neighbours recover from this week’s turkey and fixings with a little retail therapy, we too will join in the shopping frenzy that is Black Friday.

The much-anticipated shopping day falls on November 29, 2013 and retailers are offering extended hours, not-to-miss markdowns, giveaways and special perks to get into the festivities. For those of you who want to avoid the crowds, Cyber Monday will follow when the deals hit the web for your at-home convenience. Like never before, shopping deals are available on both sides of the border with brands like Old Navy having a storewide fifty percent off sale and the chance for one lucky shopper to become a millionaire by the end of the day. Heyo! Cyber Monday 2013 will also prove launch day for M.A.C, as the cosmetics company is adding to the hype by launching a black lipstick dubbed “Hautecore” online only.

Now that you’ve browsed our 2013 holiday guide and your shopping list has started to take shape, this weekend will be a great time to tackle your gift buying. We’ve gathered the best deals, perks and services to expect before and during Black Friday and not forgetting Cyber Monday. We’ll keep updating our list so do check back.


Fashion week prep: A street style maven turned online intern shares 3 inexpensive and vibrant outfit statements


Fashion Week Prep Mo Handahu

Having traveled from Halifax to Toronto for the past three years to document up and coming fashion, beauty and street style trends for my site Lion Hunter, I’ve come to accept the madness of fashion week. This season, as an online editorial intern at FASHION, I get to experience fashion week differently, having already been in the city for a few months and working for the magazine. Each day will still bring worries of failing to squeeze in a quick bite between shows, publishing up to date content and finding a moment to rest before the next day rolls in. Thankfully, concern over my sartorial choices is the least of these.

My approach to figuring out outfits leads to a heap of gathered wares from my favourite thrift and vintage stores that I’ve slowly collected since the lights dimmed last season. Vintage trinkets and jewellery, a plethora of prints and dope heels that I will curse at the end of each day, are all under scrutiny. As a frugal shopper I’ve found ways to create street style worthy looks without making my bank account sweat. I put together possible looks out of that pile of goodness allowing myself to change them due to last minute thrift store finds or an inspired trade of pieces between outfits. The upside of taking in Toronto Fashion Week is a prior month worth of street style inspiration from New York, London, Paris and Milan to inspire a week’s worth of looks.

In the spirit of anything goes when dressing for fashion week, here are 3 inexpensive looks that are worthy of a little show and tell.

Along with the crisp fall breeze that assures us summer is winding down comes new fashion possibilities—and what better to fill the void in your closet? With fall comes a tendency for darker attire, the bold textures, edgy colours and metallic hardware—of course, these are just a few of things to look forward to this season, and don’t feel restricted to just one!

We’ve combined this season’s boldest looks to love and layer, and they’re sure to spice up your wardrobe of neutrals and remind you that more is more. We may not be shedding skin as the temperatures drop, but we sure are showing new skins, like wine-stained leathers for trenches and tops and multi-hued furs for coats. Classic camouflage prints were all over pants and pumps that came stomping down the runways for everyone from Jean Paul Gaultier to Carolina Herrera. These pieces are not for the faint of heart or the timid to trends—but keeping warm doesn’t mean letting your style go cold. Read more »

Finally, summer is just around the corner and surf, sand and sunscreen are words we’re thrilled to bring back into our vocabulary. We’ve got four glorious months of swimsuit potential just around the corner and to help you prep, we’ve got 30 must-have new styles for the swim 2013 season. While we can’t promise to make the changeroom experience any easier, we can take the guesswork out of choosing a suit that will make the biggest splash poolside.

Look to the runway for inspiration and test the waters in a brand-new bather. From bright shades to solid stripes, we are drawing inspiration from Rochas’ dainty outing to Burberry’s metallics.

On the runway, Michael Kors showed us a sporty take on stripes with a lake-ready colour-blocked style. At Moschino Cheap and Chic, the theme was floral, with hints of Hawaii. And if colour ain’t your thing, Jason Wu made us want to buy a one-way ticket to Saint Tropez when he sent a glammed up little-black-one-piece down the runway with an ultra-feminine cover up worn over top.
