Tory Burch opens May 4th at Yorkdale, Toronto

Another great score for Yorkdale Mall - and fashionistas in the GTA - is the opening of the Tory Burch store this Friday May 4th, 2012.

Tory opened her first store in NYC (naturally) in 2004 and has gained a cult following (celebs like Beyonce, Oprah and Reese Witherspoon) ever since.  That first Store almost completely sold out of everything it had - the first day!  Tory's style is preppy-meets-modern-boho.  Her clothes, accessories, shoes and handbags all have those little details and fine embellishments that make something truly special.  Think of what you'd want to wear if you were lucky enough to be vacationing in The Hampton's at Kelly Ripa's place, or on a yacht in the Mediterranean with Jay-Z and Beyonce, or even your best friend's baby shower or backyard bbq.  Trust me - you'll find the perfect outfit for all those occasions at Tory Burch.  And if you can afford the prices, please do me a favour and buy a few things for me while you're there.  Thanks!

One of her best known items is the Reva ballet flat (named after her mother) - a few years ago you couldn't swing your Birkin bag without hitting someone wearing them.  (sidenote: I really wish I had a Birkin bag).  I'd name something after my mother too if she had dated Marlon Brando and Steve McQueen! 

Born in Philly, she's one of a few truly American designers, and very generous with her charitable pursuits.  Personally I love following her love life, as she's dated the likes of Lance Armstrong and is always seen at the best New York parties.  A cool lady, and a very cool line I wish I could fill my closet with.

I am so looking forward to this. I might not hit it until Monday next week (ANTM LIVE! on Friday and don't want to deal with crowds on Saturday or Sunday) but will definitely check it out before mid-May. I might get a pair of Eddies. As much as I love Tory, I'm not sure about the Revas, since I'm not a big fan of having a huge logo on the toes of my size 4 1/2 or 5 feet!

Oh yes, those are small feet for those big logos indeed Cynthia!
