The store was set to open at 11am but I arrived at 10:30. I had to take a bus and a streetcar and then walk about 3 blocks. I was the forth person in line. Shoe geeks, Unite!
There were limited edition men's and women's shoes that will only be sold at the Distillery store. I was smitten. Yes, I bought a pair! They are from the Miracle family.
Compared to the Queen Street store, this one is positively huge. It might even be larger than the Gastown store in Vancouver. It's big enough for this huge chandelier. I also loved the design on the back wall.
There was a table full of Minis.
And the Queen Transcendent Elizabeth with the Kitschy Kitschy Boom Booms and some Acid washed Angels.
I only stayed for about 30 minutes but I left with two pairs of shoes. The limited edition Miracles and the Integrity Arabella. It's a bit of a trek for me to get there but I'll definitely go back to visit the awesome sales staff.
And here's what I wore today, including the new shoes. Sorry about the blurry shot.
Cardigan: from Value Village
T-shirt: American Apparel
Skirt: Studio Gang on Ossington Street
Shoes: Fluevog Miracles | Marvel
Studio Gang is an awesome store with clothes designed and made by the owner Deborah Korosec. She told me that these pockets were inspired by watching Apocalypse Now. I'm guessing she meant the military lapels. I went in for the clothes and stayed to pat the shop dog! Doggies!
I'm 100% more likely to visit a store that has a dog or a cat in residence. True fact!
Pinstripes and floral? Not too bad if I say so. The shoes are quite comfortable.
Tomorrow I'm going to Ottawa for about 6 hours. Not sure if I'll get an outfit photo or not.
