Our Annex Location: Before & After

baa (2 of 8)A lot of love and hard work went into opening up our new store in the Annex. We got the space a lot sooner than expected and it felt a bit like a race against the clock to get it ready and opened. A lot of the staff helped, but a big portion of everything coming together was thanks to Dan who was an all around handy/everythingman, Jess who helped plan and design the space, Meg who put together our beautiful window display, and of course Nicole and her partner Stefan, who worked tirelessly late into the night way too many days in a row to get this store open.

I didn’t have a chance to get to the store when it was just an empty space, but hopefully you can gather from our before and after shots the work and effort that went into making our new, beautiful store!

March Staff Picks

Common Sort | March Staff PicksSave for a few people, the staff here picked their fav pieces last month and shared a few thoughts on why they love them. Each one of us has pretty different styles, so it was fun to guess who picked what, which is usually pretty obvious, tbh. Without further adieu…a few words from the lovely humans that make this place go round.Common Sort | March Staff PicksTea: “Tis my fave because it reminds me of a 1980s Fassbinder film.”

Common Sort | March Staff PicksJessy: “I love this double-sided silk kimono as a layering piece because you can wear it over/or under a denim/leather jacket, and it dresses up a plain t-shirt/high waisted jeans kind of outfit. AND IT’S WARM! But, let’s be real…a vintage silk kimono makes you look expensive.”

Common Sort | March Staff PicksSarah: “Be the queen of the Bellwoods picnic scene with this adorable handbag. It’s just large enough for the essentials, a snack and a tall can.”

Common Sort | March Staff PicksElizabeth: “leather jackets are always a solid staple for any wardrobe. I really love this piece because it is still a classic cut, but a little different than others because of the sick clasps on the front.”

Common Sort | March Staff PicksMeghan: “This Topshop Japanese-inspired varsity jacket is what dreams are made of. I mean, c’mon! It’s reversible and embroidered! It’s hard to imagine any outfit that wouldn’t be made better by putting this on.”

Common Sort | March Staff PicksErin:Β “In this coat i am serving you ‘Jenny From The Block on Payday’ REALNESS! Denim jackets are my #1 classic Canadian spring staple and I’m always on the look for ones that stand out from the crowd”

Common Sort | March Staff PicksCaroline: “I’d wear this baby with a tank and red lips ;)”

Common Sort | March Staff PicksRoxy: “I’m a big fan of the twee look and this dress reminds me of Little Orphan Annie, which is a good thing, as far as I’m concerned. If I was feeling super cutesy I’d style it with saddle shoes or Mary Janes, but I also think it could look good with Doc Martens or creepers for more of a grunge type of look.”

AMALIA'S PICK (2)Alex: “I’d pair this linen gem with a pair of high waisted cropped white trousers, white turtleneck and suede olive green slides. It’s the perfect slightly oversized jacket that looks great unbuttoned and tied at the waist to give it a bit of interest.”

Common Sort | March Staff PicksAmalia: “I feel like this is the kind of dress I imagine someone wearing while walking through a meadow picking wild flowers or foraging for berries. Best accessorized with bare feet and a wicker basket.”

Common Sort | March Staff PicksDan: “I like it bc I’m a fab bitch pastel princess and I can never find dresses that fit my man shoulders lol.”

There is so much style inspiration floating around the internet. When I am feeling uninspired in the morning I’ll flip through my Pinterest and Instagram saves to help me come up with some outfit ideas. Because we have such a wide range of pieces in store, it’s very likely you could find every piece you needed to put together an entire outfit inspired by one of your favs from the web. Today we thought we’d recreate a street style look with pieces from the shop to show you how easy it can be.Common Sort | Get This LookCommon Sort | Get This LookCommon Sort | Get This Look

Five Under Twenty

Common Sort | 5 Pieces Under $20Β From high-end to low-end, we get quite a mix of pieces coming in daily. Our higher end pieces get a lot of the lime-light…I mean ACNE for under $100…hello! but we also understand some people shop with us not for brand names, but because it’s significantly cheaper than buying new (and not unethical). Today we are giving a bit of the lime-light to our inexpensive pieces, 5 pieces under $20, a new series we will be sharing here.Common Sort | 5 under $20H&M trousers size XS – $16

Common Sort Late Winter Lookbook

RubyFW (2 of 47)With Ruby Tuesday

We have a very talented team here at Common Sort, so we’ve been making an effort to put those talents to good use, and in this case, in the form of a late (late) winter lookbook. Meghan, one of our senior buyers styled the shoot with pieces from the shops, Ruby, our part time sales associate modelled and Alex, our social media director and sometimes buyer shot the lookbook. Now that we have started our own blog we are planning to shoot more lookbooks and share other content from our staff, so we hope you stick around to see what we get up to. Stay tuned for part two of this lookbook, which we will be sharing in the next couple days!RubyFW (1 of 47)RubyFW (3 of 47)RubyFW (4 of 47)RubyFW (5 of 47)RubyFW (6 of 47)RubyFW (9 of 47)RubyFW (8 of 47)RubyFW (7 of 47)Common Sort | Common Sort Late Winter LookbookRubyFW (11 of 47)RubyFW (12 of 47)RubyFW (13 of 47)RubyFW (14 of 47)RubyFW (16 of 47)RubyFW (17 of 47)RubyFW (19 of 47)RubyFW (20 of 47)RubyFW (18 of 47)RubyFW (21 of 47)RubyFW (22 of 47)RubyFW (23 of 47)RubyFW (24 of 47)RubyFW (25 of 47)RubyFW (26 of 47)RubyFW (27 of 47)RubyFW (28 of 47)
