Kensignton Market

Ok so as promised here are the details of my trip.
The first day when we arrived, it was pouring rain so we just went to Eaton Centre which is just like any other crappy mall in Canada. Nothing new there or exciting.

The second day the weather was better so we went for lunch on Queen Street and then made our way to Kensignton Market through Chinatown. Here is what I wore: my bf liked the background for my outfit. My outfits are a bit casual when i travel because i like to be comfy when i spend the whole day out in the same clothes. I only wore heels at dinner.



Wore: Miss Me top, Tracy Feith Jacket, AE Jeans, Gap sandals, Zara bag, the honey room sunglasses ( thx nookie... love them).

Anyways...Kensignton Market is basically an area full of vintage stores in old Victorian houses. It was the best vintage shopping I have seen.




I bought a white crinoline and a black sequined tube top.... I think they might be my b-day outfit in September... i usually like to go for princess over the top glitz on my b-days.




I also got this retro luggage that I carried all the way from Kensington to Queen's Park and back to our hotel. Vintage luggage's are so heavy even when empty.



The second part of my trip I will post later this week... more sightseeing basically and a bit more shopping obviously.



P.S. I just had to share with u this pic...
