We’ve heard from our loyal customers who wanted a few more days to be able to stop by for the big Fresh & Fabulous Blowout Sale. We had such a blast today helping everyone who came in find the perfect holiday dress, or the gift for that special someone – so we decided to extend the sale until December 01! Save 40% off vault stock including Brenda Beddome, Mandala Design, Kollontai, Melow, Annie50, Soia & Kyo, Dinh-Ba, Hush Puppies, Miz Mooz Shoes and more!

In addition Fresh Baked Goods is now $50.00 for all dresses and $25.00 for all tops and bottoms. We also have some $10.00 t-shirts that would make perfect stocking stuffers!

We have limited sizes and colours in all the lines, so you’re going to want to get to each store early to find the gems.

This sale is only at our Roncesvalles and Queen Street stores!

Stop by this weekend on your way to the One Of A Kind Show, and share some holiday tunes, styling advice and good times with our Style Staff!

Our #FRESH10 Contest Winner

fresh10 winner

 

Just two weeks ago we announced the winner to our #FRESH10 Contest – a contest celebrating our 10 year anniversary and giving one lucky FC fan the chance to win a 10-piece wardrobe!

We were overwhelmed with the entries – hundreds of tweets, likes and lovely top ten lists came flooding our way and we were genuinely moved by it all!

Photo: Our lucky #FRESH10 winner Carley grabbed over $1000 of goodies today! CONGRATS! @someonecallacab

Meet Carley – our fabulous #FRESH10 winner. We had a blast shopping with her this Saturday.

Carley was on the hunt for a nice skirt to fill out her wardrobe. She didn’t have to look far. The minute she spotted this fun print, she was head over heels! (LENA skirt from Mandala Design – $88)

This sassy tank was a must-have! (Cancan Tunic from Kollontai – $152)

Our newest Queen Street gal Ana, was excited to have a twin when Carley tried on this best-seller from Rita Di Cesare – they couldn’t help but snap a picture together! (Christina Tank Dress from Rita Di Cesare – $159)

There was a bit of a squeal of delight when I pulled out the domino pieces Tara of Odd Bird Design had dropped off!

I
 believe “YES PLEASE!” was all Carley said when she saw this gorgeous 100% silk creation from Monikova. The LAST one of its kind! Lucky steal!

This cozy cardigan from Paper People clothing looks great with Carley’s colouring and will be the perfect transitional piece for fall! (Rosemary Cardigan from Paper People Clothing $139)

A pair of earrings and a necklace from Curious Oddities definitely had us all swooning a little…

Carley received a voucher to grab a pair of Hush Puppies online, but she had to try on what we had in-store and fell for these coral pumps! (Sanguin Pumps from Hush Puppies – $120)

Not only did she get a cute pair of Candi Factory undies for herself, but she got to treat her lucky boyfriend to a pair as well! (Candi Factory underpants – men’s $32, women’s $22)

We adored this bold piece with a belted sash from Studio Fresh – looked great with her jeans, but can you imagine it with a pencil skirt in a classic black or a bold colour? Va va voom! (Vestie w/Sash from Studio Fresh – $120)

It was a pleasure spending the afternoon with Carley – she was an absolute doll and we can’t wait for updates on what she’s up to in her new Fresh Collective wardrobe!

Fun at Foursquare Day

I had a blast attending Foursquare Day on Tuesday night! The evening was full of fun, networking, laughter, delicious beverages, yummy food (thanks for the delish veggie wrap Lou Dawg’s!), goofy photo ops and great giveaways!

The Beer Academy was buzzing with social media professionals and app nerds galore, and hosted (as you now know) by the lovely web mavens Nat & Marie, who we were proud to dress for the occasion.

Nat wowed the crowd in this gorgeous dress by Desserts & Skirts!

Marie totally rocked this great outfit featuring a bolero jacket from Kollontai, Tiger tee from Things Aren’t So Terrible and amazing trousers from Monikova!

I chose to wear this pastel coloured number by Brenda Beddome which I topped with a leather jacket for a little rock and roll edge… as well as this hat and glasses… for a… cartoon Johnny Depp look? Okay okay… they were photo props, relax!

One of the night’s highlights was this fun make-your-own-gif station from SweetGif – I of course had to sneak in some FC promo – Do YOU follow us on Twitter yet? (do it… or else…)

photo (29)Other great perks: I got a yummy Pilsner from Creemore Springs and a brand new case for my iPhone thanks to iSkin!

Thanks to Karly from Foursquare Day, Nat & Marie for promoting FC so beautifully and all the other partners and attendees for a wonderful 4/16! See you next year!

“What’s Galentine’s Day? Oh it’s only the best day of the year! Every February 13th my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home and we just kick it – breakfast style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It’s like Lilith Fair… minus the angst… plus fritattas.”
– Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), Parks and Recreation

 

We are ALL about ladies celebrating ladies and so – we at FC are totally taking on the Parks and Rec way of life! HAPPY GALentine’s DAY!

Sooooo the perfect Galentine’s Day outfit? It mixes comfort and a little sass! Wear your favourite pair of comfy black Yoga jeans with a brand new Kollontai tunic (just arrived THIS WEEK!). This tunic is flirty and romantic, but still manages to be casual over jeans and paired with sweet Chaste Skimmer flats from Hush Puppies (also brand new)! Toss a Mandala cardigan over top to keep warm and you’re ready for a night out (or in) with your best gal pals!

Unsure of what to do for Galentine’s? Why not grab a girlfriend and bring her down to Fresh Collective Queen St tonight at 7:30 – You’ll have a blast shopping with our style coaches, seeing our new spring arrivals and meeting even more great gals!
