ARITZIA – Snooze You Loose Sale (officially starts Feb. 4th)

The “Snooze You Lose” sale at Aritzia officially starts today, February 4, 2009. I checked out the downtown locations this morning, and saw silk skirts for $50, ribbed beaters for $10, slight discounts on the TNA hoodies, reductions on winter coats, but not much of a price reduction in terms of new stock. In fact, if you’ve been to Aritzia in the past week or so, items have already been put on sale and even though the official start (according to posters around downtown) is today, prices haven’t been noticeably cheaper than what they were in the past week.

Aritzia – 25th Anniversary Sale (Nov. 18 to 20th)

2009 marks the 25th anniversary of Canadian fashion retail chain, Aritzia. From now until Sunday November 22, they are having a sale to celebrate this occasion. I stopped by the Pacific Centre branch today and I didn’t think there were outrageously good deals. The usual 10% off house brands (TNA, Talula, Wilfred, etc.) The best deals I came across were 30% off UGG Boots and Rock & Republic Jeans for $150.

My cousin and I have lined up at 6am for the past three years – it’s tradition! We come prepared with magazines, a mat to sit on and playing cards.

The “Boyfriend Blazer”

Despite the crazy Vancouver weather, spring is almost upon us and that means getting rid of the heavy winter parkas and exchanging them for a lighter option. Ironically, this new piece in my wardrobe came from raiding my mom’s closet before she left on vacation. A black, three-button tailored, “longer-than-average” BCBG blazer which can only now be labeled as a “boyfriend blazer”.

Occasionally described as retro or vintage, my personal description of The Boyfriend Blazer is more “stylish corporate”. This fairly new label in the fashion world allows a casual outfit to be dressed up with added style, without feeling out of place. Continue reading for five ways to wear The Boyfriend Blazer.
