Damzels' last gasp
Damzels in This Dress designers Rory Lindo and Kelly Freeman launched their new Doll Factory Studio line of record-sleeve-packed clothing at the Bovine on March 23 with a rowdy dance karaoke show, but a few Damzels dresses are still kicking around. They're being sold at the Final Frock Sale today through Saturday (April 6 to 8) at 101 Spadina, second floor. Pick up a few flirty numbers before they find a home in another fashionista's closet.
Casa on the cheap
If making the down payment on your 500 square feet of downtown condo heaven has your bank account reading "Empty," you can still score a sweet space-saving deal at Casalife 's (170-171 East Liberty, 416-922-2785, www.casalife.com) spring sale. All through April, selections from their stock of urban-scaled decor solutions are marked down by 20 to 80 per cent. Pick up a storage-savvy ottoman, score an extra-discounted floor model or style up your balcony with a teak lounger, table and chairs.
