If you’ve been following our Instagram account (which I’m sure you all are) then you know our big news: we’re moving Bridge+Bardot online! Our 1138 Dundas Street West location will remain open until the end of January, and after that we’re going digital! It’s been an absolute pleasure getting to know each and every one of our customers and we hope that an online shop will better serve as many of you as possible. If you haven’t checked the shop out yet, you definitely need to. The items are incredibly unique and the selection is only going to continue to grow and get better as time goes on. While it’s lots of fun to bundle up, head outside, and hit the shops (no thanks!) – we simply must ask the question – what’s better than online shopping? Here are some reasons why we absolutely adore it!
Working in a vintage shop day after day, you tend to fall in love with many pieces, but it would be unfair of me to snag them all for myself (though plenty end up in my closet regardless). While I’m often sad to see some of my favourites go, I’m comforted by the fact that they’re at least going to a good home (our lovely customers’) and with someone who loves them as much as I do. Now that the holiday season is upon us, I have to start focusing my spending on people other than myself, and therefore, lots of my favourite items are up for grabs! Perfect pieces for your holiday shopping, whether they’re gifts for others, or a treat for yourself.
If you’re anything like me, and will forever be a n00b in the world of beauty, then you know that beauty inspiration is necessary to everyday life. Whether you’re scrolling through your Instagram feed, scoping the latest runway trends, or ferociously tearing through magazines, having some sort of beauty reference makes it all the more easy when you sit down in front of the mirror and try to make something magical happen from the shoulders up. But instead of just looking at what’s current, why not take a page out of the beauty book of some retro babes?
I’m going to make a bold statement here, so prepare yourselves – Halloween (if done right) is the best night of the year. Don’t misunderstand me, things can go wrong on Halloween and your night can be ruined. It’s cursed with the same expectations as New Years Eve, but with an air of mischief and possibility, it hails supreme in the holiday department. Nothing is more fun than getting ready for Halloween. Whether you’re alone, or with your friends, preparing for Halloween (fake blood, lashes, and fangs close at hand) is all a buzz with excited anticipation for the night ahead.
As we mourn the passing of the splendor that is summer, we must look forward, to the joys that the coming Fall months will provide. I mean, there’s pumpkin spiced lattés, little tiny halloween sized chocolate bars (that means I can eat way more of them, right?), and chunky knit sweaters. Sadly the transition from Summer to Fall not only takes away the warm temperatures, but also the outdoor music festivals such sunshine provided. But have no fear, despite the music moving indoors, Toronto still does (and always will) play host to an endless supply of amazing shows.
As much as I’m an advocate for the occasional *treat yo self* day, I’m also often privy to a more frugal mindset. Sure, indulging in some primping and pampering is luxurious and relaxing, but it can also be done at home, without ever leaving your couch or doling out payment. To start this series off, […]
No matter your age, gender, or the season – denim is universal. It’s universally a wardrobe staple that you can’t live without. Whether you feel like slumming around in your boyfriend’s denim and watching movies all day, or if you wear that same denim with heels and some bling to paint the town that night […]
Bridge + Bardot is located in one of the best neighbourhoods in the city. Not only is there an endless supply of shopping, watering holes, and cute boys with their cute dogs – but also an endless supply of places to get your snack on. I don’t mean light snacking, I mean getting your snack on in a very serious way. Whether it’s with after work drinks or a dinner date, Dundas and Ossington will have your mouth watering and head spinning with all the different snacking options.
Source: blogTO by Matt Forsythe During the winter months Toronto is beautiful frozen city, but where are its inhabitants? Oh, they’re just hiding inside, trying to avoid the frigid temperatures. Come the summer months (which apparently includes May now?!) the city has thawed, the sun is shining bright, and it’s hard to make a Torontonian […]
