Today is a Good Day!

My interview went incredibly well, which has put me in a wonderful mood for the rest of the day! I had no idea Reitmans group owned so many of the Canadian clothing stores! Smart Set (where I had my interview) is by far my favorite, but they're also home to Addition Elle, Penningtons, RW&Co, Thyme, Cassis, and of course Reitmans! You've got to love these thriving Canadian born and bred retailers! My second potential interview location is Spring, which is owned by another Canadian company, Aldo Group. With so many of our companies either being bought out, or struggling to compete with bigger named American companies, its good to see a few of our own remaining to be so successful.
As someone who has studies business in a very liberal arts University, remaining local and supporting the Canadian economy are qualities I hold close to my heart and hope to contribute to in the future.

Now that I'm done my little speech, on to some photos!

This day I happened to be cleaning my uncle's house with my grandmother as a nice surprise before he came home from Italy. Don't ask me why I got so fancy for such a task... I just like looking pretty I guess! Anyways, as boring as cleaning sounds, I managed to find a few of my aunt's old things that I've appropriated as my own. As they are mostly jackets, none will be getting much wear until the fall, but I'll be sure to credit my dear Zia Carmela where applicable in the future!
For now I'll leave you with one of my many new treasures:
Thank you Zia!
