Aritzia Warehouse Sale 2013

Image
The sale was held at the Vancouver Convention Centre again. The clothes aren't organized in any particular way so you just have to look through all the racks. 

This is the price list for all the accessories.  This huge pile of phone cases was just on the floor. All of them were for Blackberry or iPhone 3G/3GS. This is the table of denim for the smaller sizes. If you look closely you can see the table behind for the larger sizes has a lot more denim available. Brands I saw included COH, Rag & Bone, TNA and Current/Elliott. And prices were around $29.99 - $99.99. 
There was also another table full of tank tops for $9.99 which included the racerback tanks and bustier tanks. There was a lot of merchandise left over from the sale last year. I bought a couple items including leggings and a Marc by Marc Jacobs iPad case
If you went to the sale what did you buy?

How fun is this lip gloss? It's so fitting for my blog "Inititaled". Love the bling "T" and the grape flavour. Bonus how it matched my kicks today too.

I attended the Endless Summer swimwear presentation in the Quiksilver Lounge at the Knowshow. The Knowshow is Canada's most radical trade show featuring lifestyle, action sports and fashion retailers and brands. The Knowshow is held bi-annually at the Vancouver Convention Centre. All swimwear in this presentation was by Roxy and Vitamin A. There was an artificial beach set up complete with surfboards, beach balls and sand. All the models had a retro 60's look that complemented every outfit. The entire presentation was very fun with all the models hula-hooping, tossing beach balls and posing with surfboards. I look forward to attending more of these great events at the Knowshow.

Jack of all Trades David Bowie T-Shirt - Mirror (similar here and here); Hollister jean shorts; Chicago Bulls snapback hat via F as in Frank (similar); American Apparel socks (similar); Nike Dunk Sky Hi sneakers (similar)
My love of band tees continues with this David Bowie one. I got it from the Guys section. I would definitely get one of the Jimi Hendrix tees from Jack of all Trades next. There's the Live MTL '68 and Label. Both would look great in my wardrobe.
