Merchandising and online creations at Leslie’s is a blast. Today I styled up a few posts for the blog features… usually inspired from outfits I wear myself. Check out the Leslie’s blog here.
What a busy year it has been for both of us. In order to introduce our pup Nanc to the wonderful world of Winnipeg, we decided to make our holiday visit… a road trip! Working up until the last minute, we didn’t have time to check the weather network before venturing off to Chicago, Wisconsin… need we say more? The storm of the Century took us by surprise… but we made it through… and we were not just happy, but […]

Thrilled, and grateful are two words that describe how we feel towards our online shop featuring local boutique Saffron Road. What a wonderful start to our J. Lofthouse online shop. There is a lot to know about what it takes to run an online shop, we (Jen & Jesse) are new to this game… and we learn something new each day! Our shop features mainly women’s fashion, with a few beautiful men’s pieces as well. Some of the brands we […]
A couple weeks back I dropped in to David E. White Barber Shop for my first clean up shave of “Movember”. Not being very familiar with the old fashion shave, I was a little nervous and had to trust Ken with the blade. As soon as we started, I realized this was not your typical five minute shave. Ken the barber took me through a full thirty-minute process, which involved everything from hot towels, moisturizing lotions, a precise clean shave, […]
Just a couple more days and the J. Lofthouse online store will be up and running! We are in the midst of loading up our inventory, and working out any kinks. New arrivals will be available each week. A portion of sales will go to the Masigcine home (South Africa), a place close to our hearts. We hope you can find something you love! “Like” our FB page, or check back on Saturday to check out our little online boutique!
Saffron Road, a local boutique to the city of London hosted a party featuring Greta Constantine. The evening was filled with interesting people, shopping, drinks (one called Greta… the other Constantine), and the guests of honour, Stephen and Kirk, the Canadian designers themselves! Throughout the evening, models would be walking about the party, sporting Greta’s Spring 2013 collection (draw-dropping, attention to detail, beautiful). Below are a few pictures we snapped throughout the party, so lovely spending time with great people, […]

Last Wednesday Jen and I enjoyed Saffrons Fall Fashion Show, featuring their Fall 2012 collection that they are selling in store now. We were greeted at the door with a warm welcome, a glass of wine, and the choice between several delicious hors d’oeuvres. Raffle tickets were also handed out, giving each guest a chance to win a Love Heals necklace. Ironically , being one of the only men in attendance I held the winning ticket. I had the pleasure of […]

It’s a pleasure being the visual merchandiser for Leslie’s Clothing. SO MANY beautiful things, I don’t know what to do with myself! I am amazed when people can actually leave the store empty handed! There is something for everyone, if you’re needing a treat, or needing to treat someone, come on down! More pictures here.

We both love shopping boutiques; however, it is rare to find a shop that we both equally love. ‘We both found love’, as Rihanna might say at Saffron Road! This well established Richmond Row (London) boutique offers Jennifer plenty of sophisticated elegant fashion selection, and also offers Jesse a selection of men’s casual wear, James Perse and J Shoes being two of his favourite purchases thus far. We’d like to thank Gail-Lynn and all the ladies of Saffron for being […]

“Love me , Love me, Say that you love me.” WILDFOX has officially made its way into my personal wardrobe! A couple months ago, the ‘reps’ for Wildfox were visiting the boutique I work in. They mentioned Romeo and Juliet as being the theme for this years fall (Wildfox) collection. I thought back to high school, when reading this particular book… and couldn’t imagine how Wildfox was going to incorporate the book within their branding; however, I did NOT even […]
Who knew a fall scarf would be such an outfit lifesaver! I’m LOVING this 5Preview massive red scarf. Red isn’t my colour; however, the print on the scarf surprisingly matches well with everything in my closet. I’m in love! 5Preview is a wonderful Italian clothing line we carry at Leslie’s Clothing on Richmond, C’mon down!
Together, Jesse and I drove to Ottawa to attend a wedding. We were situated downtown, and decided to permanently park our car underground, for the duration of our visit. We walked… aka cabbed around the city, it helped that every destination was within a close proximity to our hotel. A wedding, Parliament, Rideau Centre, the market, boutiques, local restaurants were just a few highlights of our trip. We loved the vibe of the downtown life, not to mention the fabulous […]
