Wendy Woods' blog: The upside of down

Shopgirls Gallery Boutique, located at 1342 Queen Street West, is a gorgeous space filled with fabulous Canadian designs. Stacey Zhang, from Montreal, is one of the newest additions to the Shopgirls roster, and her pieces are flying off the shelves!

My favourite piece this season is a down-filled winter coat, which is a fabulous investment piece for cold Toronto winters. With its cinched waist, this coat is the most figure flattering down coat I have seen – and the dramatic hood adds flair to an otherwise simple garment. Exquisite!

Another piece I love for its versatility is a lacy billowing top. This top can be worn with a sexy skirt for an evening on the town or with jeans and a sweater for brunch with the girls. Whatever you pair it with, it always looks stunning and a little bit flirty!

In a ShopGirls fashion show I recently styled real women and paired 10 of the 15 models with Stacy Zhang pieces– two of whom are pictured above. With each of the women ranging in age, shape, size, and character, the show was a true testament that Stacey Zhang’s designs appeal to women from all walks of life!

Always on the lookout for the next fabulous piece!
