We praised Lydia Klenck and her Lydia K line two weeks ago as one of our local design faves. Saturday (February 4), from noon to 7 pm, she's holding her seasonal sale at cutesy Market style shop Iki (19 Kensington, 416-598-0790) and offering great discounts on her coveted folk-inspired duds. Felty capes and pointed hoods aren't for wardrobe wallflowers, but a 50 per cent discount makes it easy to incorporate her pencil skirts and wool hats into your daily wear.
Brava on the move
Vintage staple Brava has abandoned its Queen and Spadina digs (the developers are coming!) and hopped to a shiny new shop on the west side of Augusta (553 Queen West, 416-504-8742). Digging for old-school style in the organized space is a treat, but the swanky vibe hasn't affected the number of fabulous finds. Wool herringbone fedoras go for $25, as do retro pumps, including a hot red patent leather wingtip pair. Start prepping for prom at the wall of frothy 50s dresses starting at $150.
Groovy furniture hot spot Morba (665-667 Queen West) has knocked 10 to 75 per cent off its stock of mid-century-style home decor. Plastic table lamps are marked down to $14.99, stackable serving trays go for $19.99 each, and a retro chrome barstool gives your diner-style kitchen cred for $95. And just between sweet deals and you, we hear Morba will be holding a blowout warehouse sale mid-February to clear out its cache of prop furniture. Call 416-364-5144 to find out all the details.
