Give more good gifts
We've only been away from the holiday shopping fray for a few weeks, but here we are again with some sweet gift advice. A pair of new sites will point you in the direction of great gotta-have-it buys. Former Wish fashion editor Alison Lawler-Dean's just-launched GiveGoodGift.ca offers tips on tracking down the perfect present for any occasion. WhereDidYouGetThat.ca is a new e-boutique focused on well-edited best buys in jewellery, clothing and home accessories.
Yorkville jewellery boutique Daniel Espinosa (21 Avenue Rd, 1-877-331-7883, danielespinosa.com) has created a limited-edition bracelet to benefit the Wear White 4 Windfall fundraising campaign (ww4w.ca). The sterling silver chain is on sale now for $40, with $10 from each purchase benefiting Windfall Clothing Service's collection and distribution of new clothing to social service agencies around Toronto.
LG is the new L'Oreal
In case you missed the news during the pre-holiday hoopla, LG now has naming rights to the city's biannual runway shows (though L'Oreal still has dibs on the event's URL - lorealfashionweek.ca - for now). The bigger story is the addition of IMG to the fashion-week mix. The international sport and entertainment management company produces New York's Fashion Week, along with shows in Miami and Berlin.
Etiquette gurus go on about the old-school charm of scribbling post-holiday thank-you notes, and a good dose of gratitude never goes out of style.
