METAL­LIC MOOD

Ron White, 2901 Bayview Vil­lage

FOR THE LOVE OF LO­GOS

$1,085: “The fab­u­lous let­ters on this Fendi pair are very play­ful and very whim­si­cal, and the logo trend is back in a big way.”

Holt Ren­frew, 50 Bloor St. W.

MAK­ING ME BLUSH

$475: “This is gor­geous, it’s so fem­i­nine. It’s al­most like frayed silk rib­bon that’s been woven. So el­e­gant with a vin­tage vibe.”

Davids, 66 Bloor St. W.

THE OG GUCCI

SU­PER­STAR
