Shop Til You Drop Recap AKA My Sojourn to Oak and Fort

A couple weeks ago I attended my first Shop Til You Drop event at Metropolis at Metrotown. This famed annual shopping event is where Metrotown, Vancouver's largest mall, offers a veritable bonanza of shopping discounts at many of its stores, alongside exclusive fashion shows, demonstrations and prizes. People literally line up like it's a Justin Bieber contest in order to get their hands on a coveted Shop Til You Drop gift bag containing tons of free samples and discounts. Lucky for me, I didn't have to wait! Blogging does have its perks at times. I was fortunate enough to receive an invite from Vanessa, the voice behind Metropolis at Metrotown's social media (follow @metropolisatmet!), and she gave me a complimentary gift bag. Although it certainly didn't include all the amazing goodies that the more determined waited out for, it did contain some goodies like a sweet water bottle with a built-in filter and a $25 gift card!




Of course I knew right away where to use that baby up and headed straight to the new(ish) Oak+Fort store with my partner-in-crime, Sheila. Oak+Fort is a well known Gastown boutique and it recently opened its latest location underneath the food court. A little hidden treasure this store is and so much slicker looking than most Metro stores with its stylish window displays and modern decor.

Oak+Fort has become a recent favourite of mine, alongside my beloved Zara and Club Monaco. Known for their loose, modern silhouette and laid back yet stylish feel, Oak+Fort is a go-to destination for anyone seeking cozy over-sized knit cardigans, silk trousers and blouses and delicate chain jewelry. There are so many beautiful things to buy here and the prices actually aren't too bad for the quality!

In the end, I was torn between a gorgeous red blouse or a cream knit cardigan:




In the end though, I opted just for the cardigan as the blouse was a bit too high-low for me.

Need more evidence of why you should visit the new Oak+Fort in Metropolis at Metrotown? Here's 4 more reasons why:
