Sunday Morning, You Look Fine

We started gorgeous Sunday with a very hearty egg, cheese, and veggie scramble, courtesy of my beloved. Then it was a two-streetcar ride up to the corner of Bloor St. West and Bathurst St. to start our tour.

Our first stop was Mark's favourite bookshop, the Annex location of Book City.  He was quickly drooling over their art section. We then discovered Theodore 1922, a high-end men's store that had us both drooling. The quality of the fabrics alone was stunning, and we were very impressed with the colours and styling.

We then strolled towards the "Magnificent Mile" section of Bloor Street and visited the lower end of the scale retailers, such as Club Monaco, Banana Republic, Pottery Barn, Williams-Sonoma, before continuing east into the Village.

By this time it was 4 pm so we had a quick bite to eat at the quaint and friendly Church St Diner before heading to a favourite clothing store, Out on the Street. The latter occupies three floors of a townhouse and has amazing deals on stylish men's clothing. We each found and bought handsome zipped cardigan sweater; mine is made by Penguin, while Mark's is made by Alexander Christian.

A streetcar dropped us off near our place and we settled down on the couch to rest our feet and enjoy a viewing of "Monsters vs. Aliens", a very fun animated movie!
