Two years ago before I started my blogging, I would have never imagined myself being where I am today- attending cool events, meeting people I see on Instagram and being a part of fun projects! Blogging was something that was just a dream of mine and now it became a reality that surprises and humbles me every day. But one of the greatest perks about being a blogger is that I get to shop and showcase amazing hidden gems around the city to you! And one such gem is Queensborough Landing Shopping Centre, a shopping destination that fulfills all of your shopping needs in one- stop. Whether you are a fashion lover or bargain shopper or both, the shopping centre has got you covered. Today, I want to take you on a fashion journey and explore all the great stores and the amazing varieties of looks you can create this summer with or without a huge budget.
Located in beautiful New Westminster, Queensborough Landing Shopping Centre is conveniently located in the heart of B.C’s lower mainland. Easily accessible by transit from Vancouver, Burnaby, Delta and Richmond, the shopping centre offers tons of free parking and an incredible selection of stores. From fabulous fashion outlets such as Banana Republic, Bench, Armani Exchange, Tommy Hilfiger and Reebok, Queensborough Landing Shopping Centre is also home to great decor, dining and grocery facilities great for families on the weekend or daily weekday commuters looking to carry-out chores and stop for coffee. But of course my deepest passion lies in fashion, so I was most excited to explore all the wonderful clothing stores in the shopping centre.
Outfit 1- Sporty Chic
My first look is a sporty one inspired by these soft pastel pink sneakers from Reebok. I must admit, I haven’t worn Reebok for a long time and soon realized that I have been missing out. When James, the wonderful store manager at Reebok brought these pretty sneakers out, I instantly fell in love and knew that this was going to be the key piece in creating an effortless sporty look with a chic feminine charm. I love the classic Reebok look and was thrilled to hear that the Reebok here not only carry clearance items but also many new arrivals! Not only does Reebok have a great selection of runners and sneakers but also apparel like this cozy pink hoodie, t-shirts and sweatpants that matched perfectly with my bag and shoes. Definitely my go to for everyday, this outfit with a subtle pop of color is perfect for sports activities, running errands and school.
Outfit 2- Girlboss
If you are looking for something more elegant or sophisticated for date night or work - I suggest the dress options at Armani Exchange. For the ultimate girlboss look without paying the boss babe price tag, I suggest investing on a marvelous two-piece tweed set like this one from Armani Exchange. An extremely smart choice for the savvy-shopper, a two piece set is great because you can always interchange the pieces with jeans, jackets, blouses or sweaters. I love this simple stripe navy and blue sweater also from A/X because it really adds character to this grey ensemble and elevates the look from simple to expensive in a minute.
Outfit 3- Vixen
I really had the best time playing dress-up in Armani Exchange and my experience was further enhance by Marina, who is the sweetest person and so passionate about her job. She excitedly pulled out this beautiful wine colored dress with a sexy v-neck and insisted that I try it on. And She was right! The moment I put this dress on I felt like a movie siren and the dress hugged me in all the right places. To complete this date night look, I recommend some sparkly statement earrings, red lips and a little camel trench coat (for when it gets chilly) and you are ready to conquer the night in style. I also love how the camel makes the burgundy pop and really finishes the look in a demure and elegant way. In speaking of this short trench coat, this jacket is giving me major fall vibes and would be a magnificent fall transition piece to have and layer.
I want to thank all the wonderful staff and stores we visited and for their generous help and patience throughout. I had a great time discovering all the wonderful charms of this amazing shopping centre and you will too! Make sure you visit:
