GTA Sale Alerts – August Edition

Who doesn’t love a good sale? Even if you’re on a budget, now is the perfect time to add a last-minute addition to your summer wardrobe or pick up a classic that will work year round. Even if the flurry of July sales are over at the mall, here are a couple worth checking out now in Toronto.

eLuxe is an awesome Canadian website with a selection of mid-range designers like JBrand, Smythe and Rebecca Minkhoff. Shop their warehouse sale without going to a warehouse in the boonies – even though this girl will travel for a bargain! The sale starts next week, and arrive early. I’ve heard this one clears out fast. I’m keeping my fingers crossed I’ll be able to snatch a navy Smythe blazer to channel Kate Middleton’s look this fall.

One of my favourite shops in Toronto, Jonathan + Olivia is having a renovation sale! I’m excited to see them expand to a second level of retail, and nothing gets me more excited than finding a coveted bargain on this 49 Ossington Ave. mainstay. They stock some of my favourites including Isabel Marant (even those godawful wedge sneakers), Acne (how I miss Europe and its endless supply of Acne stores) and Comme des Garcons. I doubt those will be on sale, but I always manage to find a jewel or two on their clearance rack.

I’ll be adding to this list as I find more sales around the GTA so come back for more bargain hunting so we can all afford tuition and a new totebag come September!
