Badland Vintage Shop in Toronto at Ossington

21 comments:
 
I still have a few things left to post about vintage shopping in Toronto. Tomorrow I will be posting about the vintage clothing O.C.M.S. talk I went to at the University Women's Club. This is one of the stores we visited before we saw The Great Gatsby at the youth theatre on Osslington. The play was magical and wonderfully acted. The store loooked very small when we saw it from the outside and then we discovered that there was a huge basement full of surprises! We took a ton of pictures and laughed as I tried some hilarious things on. I ended up buying this fabulous Jackie Kennedy looking dress for twenty dollars. I miss Toronto so much already. What do you think?

Anthea, you look SO. DARN. PRETTY. in that dress! Well you ARE so darn pretty, but that dress is wonderful on you too :)
To answer your question re: knee highs - I find buying the ones with a lot of elastic/spandex in them helps, but otherwise just doing a lot of hiking them up as you walk :P
xo hope to see you back in Toronto soon - we will totally go shopping at the wicked stores at Ossington next time :)
