PATENT PER­FEC­TION HazelLily De­signer Con­sign­ment, 510 Eglin­ton Ave. W., $295, “Th­ese Jimmy Choos are ab­so­lutely clas­sic. A stun­ning patent shade of pewter, softer than black.” SILKY SOFT Haute Clas­sics, 1961 Av­enue Rd., $350, “Even if you can’t ever af­ford any­thing Her­mes, you could prob­a­bly man­age a scarf. This co­ral is the colour of the year too.”

VEL­VET DAZE The Cat’s Meow, 180 Av­enue Rd., $495, “I love this Anna Sui dress. This gor­geous plum vel­vet, it’s so rich, it looks re­gal. The mil­i­taris­tic but­tons are fan­tas­tic.”

PRINTED PUFFER Sec­ond Na­ture Bou­tique, 514 Mt. Pleas­ant Rd., $600, “This Pucci puffy coat is just per­fec­tion. Put on a big pair of sun­glasses and walk around the ski vil­lage.”

’60s THROW­BACK Printv­in­tage, 834a Col­lege St., $165, “Who could re­sist any­thing that’s Mary Quant? I love the pleated skirt, and checks are so hot and hap­pen­ing now.”

GROOVY BABY Rewind, 577 Mt. Pleas­ant Rd., $595, “This Ce­line coat looks like it came out of a psy­che­delic ’70s mo­ment. This is art to wear. It’s so graphic and so ir­re­sistible, and there’s a real weight to it.”

FLOWER POWER Re­vival Cou­ture, 363 Eglin­ton Ave. W., $595, “I have a sim­i­lar McQueen knit dress with this cut and th­ese lit­tle capped sleeves. It’s so fem­i­nine. Sexy, but de­mure.”

ICONIC PLAID Sec­ond Na­ture Bou­tique, 514 Mt. Pleas­ant Rd., $150, “It’s not the clas­sic brand colours, but this darker Burberry combo is lovely. Plus the great fringes on both sides.”

BODACIOUS BOOTS Cur­va­ceous Con­sign­ments, 7670 Yonge St., $70, “This is a dressy boot with a ’70s vibe, but the way that it’s colour blocked makes it con­tem­po­rary.”

COSY MEETS CHIC Com­mon Sort, 444 Bloor St. W., $95, “I love the graphic na­ture of this Rag & Bone funky lit­tle sweater. This is a great nod to cosy chic.”

SHINE ON Haute Clas­sics,1961 Av­enue Rd., $1,900, “What I love about this me­tal­lic is that it isn’t gold and it isn’t sil­ver, and it’s Dior. It’s a for­ever piece.”

A WORK OF ART The Cat’s Meow, 180 Av­enue Rd., $949, “This beau­ti­ful knit sweater of the Venus by Bot­ti­celli paint­ing is so great. It’s play­ful and artis­tic. A state­ment piece.”
