If you’re a soon-to-be Mrs., you have to hit up the first Canadian location of Kleinfeld. The New York-based boutique of Say Yes to the Dress fame has opened up its doors in Toronto. Sprawling over 2,000 sq. ft. on the seventh floor of the historic Hudson’s Bay building at the corner of Queen and Yonge streets, the shop is nothing short of spectacular. Complete with glittery lights and walls of stunning dresses, the open-concept showroom features a few choice luxe furnishings to glam it up. It’s the sort of space that makes your heart skip a beat and your stomach flutter a bit, the kind of realm where dreams come true. At least that’s the impression I got at the launch party several weeks ago, when fellow nearly newlywed associate editor Amanda Etty and I stood sipping bubbly, rubbing shoulders with the likes of dressmaker extraordinaire Pnina Tornai. Here’s a taste of what we saw.

What are your plans for Father’s Day weekend? If you live in or are visiting Toronto, check out Through the Garden Gate. This annual tour is put on by the Toronto Botanical Garden (TBG) and showcases of some of the city’s most beautiful private gardens. Don’t you love the idea of peeking into strangers’ backyards and taking inspiration for your own garden? I’m definitely into it, since I live in a downtown condo with minimal outdoor space (unless you count my balcony, which is currently housing my collection of potted plants).
I’m a self proclaimed amateur crafter (I’m slowly getting better, one DIY at a time!), but I enjoy it…and that’s all the really matters! My favourite thing to do is to make cards. From birthdays, to engagements, to sending friendly hello’s – I like to make simple DIY cards that give that extra personal touch. Previously, I have worked with glitter (artwork seen here, wrapping seen here)…but these days I’m on a tape kick. I was thrilled to learn that Scotch has come out with a new Expressions line that has Washi, Masking and Shipping tapes in a ton of fun colours! Read on to check out some of the collection and a few simple quick crafts I did..I just couldn’t help myself!
Just as the issue is coming off the newstands I found the before shots of my kitchen and dining room. It took a lot of planning and decision making to get it where it is today, but it was well worth it.

Happy National Doughnut Day, friends!
Yes, it’s a thing. A deliciously indulgent thing that requires no excuse to enjoy today. The Style at Home team are certainly no strangers to these sweet treats, having gotten a taste of everything from regular sprinkles to s’mores and maple bacon creations (thanks Jelly Modern Doughnuts!)
While we leave these tasty concoctions to the experts, we have seven doughnut recipes to help you celebrate this scrumptious day. Which one would YOU love to try?
