Resort 2015

Headed to the beach this spring break? Leslies has you covered. This year’s resort 2015 stock has all of us at the store ready to shed our parkas and slip into some awesome colours.
Our newest line, Bobi Clothing, is all about linen and jersey cotton. Born out of Los Angeles, California, who better to show us what “fun in the sun” means.
This year we’ve also brought in Pink Stitch’s Resort line “Impulse”. Their colours and patterns are amazing, making a bathing suit coverup look at classy as an evening gown. Bravo Pink Stitch!

Our resort collection also includes our ever popular Free People and Gentle Fawn lines. Needless to say, everything we bring in from these two brands leaves our customers in awe.


So for all you vacationers, though we are incredibly jealous of your soon to be tans, we at Leslie’s Clothing would be more than happy to outfit you in the best this season has to offer.

Safe Travels and Happy Shopping!


Fall in Love With Matt & Nat


One of the most requested brands in our store is Matt & Nat handbags. Their products are of such amazing quality, and are timeless pieces. I personally own a wallet by them which I have been using for 6 years, and I am still constantly complimented on it. However, most people don’t know how unique this brand really is; so here’s a few cool facts about one of our most favourite (and probably most ethical) brands.


All is Good in My Hood


Leslie’s Clothing is happy to introduce a new line in our store from a local designer and Western Alumni, Tonia Debellis. Her awesome designs focus on “wear-anywhere-active-wear”, which encompasses the comfortability of your favourite hoody with the chicness of your favourite dress. Perfect for work or play, these gorgeous hoodies and jackets make an outfit all on their own. Perfect for the office, toss one on with a pair of leggings and you will be complimented for your style, while feeling as if you are wearing pyjamas.
I’m in!

Melissa Shoes… Taking “Gellies” to a new level!

Everyone remembers when gelly shoes were all the rage. Well, it looks like they’re back, and scented!

Melissa brand shoes have taken the idea of a rubber shoe, and added a modern spin. These babies are both stylish and comfortable, not to mention perfect for rainy weather. If that wasn’t enough, they’re also scented like bubblegum! This Brazilian company gets an A+ in our books!
The new fall collection is now available in both our London and Bayfield stores. We dare you to come try a pair, and we guarantee you’ll be hooked.






Wedding Season

It’s that time of year again; love is in the air and couples are getting hitched. And while weddings are always a blast, many of us struggle with the decision of what to wear. Aside from a white embellished ball gown (or ripped jeans and a t-shirt) there are very few faux-pas outfits. There is no worse feeling as a woman, though, than feeling over or under dressed at an event. Different styles of weddings demand different kinds of dresses; when I am styling women in our shop, I start by asking some basic questions about the wedding they are attending. The following are some of the types of weddings we have styled for, as well as dresses from our store that I would suggest for any of our clients.

Summer is here…Finally!

Summer is here, and it looks like it’s finally here to stay. At Leslie’s, we’ve been gearing up for summer with loads of cute dresses, shorts, skirts and my favourite, boyfriend jeans.

One of the most frequently asked questions we get in the store is “what do I wear with my boyfriend jeans?” I admit that this question plagued me when I tried my first pair, but they have now become one of the most staple items in my closet. These beauties can be worn both day and night, dressed up or down. When I’m trying to create an ensemble using my boyfriend jeans, I stick to some of these basic guidelines:
