Fall Style Inspiration

Fall Style InspirationI don’t know about you, but one of my favourite parts about the changing seasons is refreshing my wardrobe and style – out with the old (and to CS to get re-homed), in with the new (again, mostly CS) and figuring out what pieces still speak to me. Pinterest and Intagram are my go-to’s each season when I’m looking for sartorial inspiration to get the ol’ brain ticking, so today we have pulled some looks from our Pinterest to show you what has been speaking to us for Fall 2018…which is tomorrow!

Designer Pieces / 3

DESIGNER PIECESIt’s due time we have another round up of some designer pieces we have in store. While designer is not our mainstay, we are very lucky to get in some pretty amazing labels that we are able to offer at a much lower price. There is nothing more pleasing than watching a customer walk away with one of their favourite designer brands that they got at a significantly reduced price.

Common Sort at Redux

Common Sort | ReduxA fashion event

A couple Fridays back we had the pleasure of participating in Ryerson School of Fashion’s Redux fashion event. Our amazing personal shopper and stylist Megan styled the entire show (save for the footwear) and we had a pop-up shop where we sold selected pieces from our stores. The night was filled with two dance performances accompanied by a runway show, nibbly bits and drinks.

It was a really fun event and incase you weren’t able to make it out we got some photos from the evening.

Common Scents

Common Sort | Common Scents…by common sort

At the beginning of February we released a Common Sort line of candles made up of four scents; Up North, Hot Bath, Laundry Day and MaryJane Rose. Our owners Nicole and Stefan worked with Kerry Lee, owner of Red SkyΒ to create candles we could call our own and sell along side all the amazing clothes we have in store. With a minimalist look, they’ll be an easy fit into your home and great for days spent indoors (bonus: you can reuse the jars after!). We are super proud of these candles and believe you will love the scents as much as we do.

What Would…

bf552f89320758e2d0dad2558c47b63eAshley Olsen Choose?

When thinking of the Olsen twins and style they are usually thought of as a collective; two peas in a pod. But today on our ‘What Would _____ Choose?’ series, we are focusing on Ashley individually and the pieces she would choose from our shop. Although, I’m sure MK wouldn’t be opposed to sporting some of them, they probably share clothes anyways. Oversized, layered and comfortable are a few words that come to mind when thinking of Ashley’s style…

Five Under Twenty / 3

Common Sort | 5 Pieces Under $20Welcome back to another roundup of clothing and accessories you can find at our stores for under $20. It’s probably obvious at this point that shopping secondhand is generally much cheaper than buying new; not only do we keep an eye out for more expensive brands that you can buy at a reduced cost with us, but we also stock our racks with some brands that are already fairly inexpensive and offering them to you for even less. It’s possible to come away from shopping with us with an entire outfit that cost you less than $100, which is pretty darn great, if you ask us.

Designer Pieces

Common Sort | Affordable Designer PiecesOne of the great things about thrifting is you can often find really amazing designer pieces at a significantly reduced price. While we aren’t known for high-end clothing, we definitely get high-end pieces frequently. If you have a love for thrifting designer, then be sure to scour our racks, you are bound to find something that was once pretty darn expensive for, often times, less than 1/4 of the original price. Today we wanted to share some designer pieces we have in store at the moment.
