Dixie Outlet Mall Shopping Challenge ~ Outfit Reveal

Last week was all about hunting exciting deals from  Dixie Outlet Mall. It was an opportunity to test my skills for saving through deals while creating a cool spring outfit. It was full of fun as I got the chance to explore almost all the shops in Dixie Outlet Mall. Not only I visited my regular brand stores but found quite a new ones which I never been to. Since spring is a season of cool breeze so I choose my outfit on the similar theme ‘BLUE’. What better could be in blue than Denim shade. I tried to keep my outfit casual and simple enough to be carried by any shape & size. Do you know how much I saved while compiling this complete outfit ? Keep reading to know the exact saving.

I always try to gather pieces from various shops so that I can save as much as possible. I did the exact same thing this time. I sticked to my plan and explored quite a lot different outlet stores and found the best deals they were offering. It is always a possibility that you get at least one of your favourite from a store and hence you can end up making a great outfit with lot of savings.






So finally here’s my total savings revealed in the below picture. Yes, I saved total of $128.90 with a $200 Gift card provided to me by Dixie Outlet Mall. Isn’t it great ? Well, Dixie Outlet Mall is fabulous place for deal hunters.


I would personally recommend to all the readers and my dear friends to visit it at least once if you are in Greater Toronto Area (GTA) or if planning to visit near by region. It is a must try for all deal hunters.

Dixie Outlet Mall Visit To Get The Best Deals

Few weeks back in my this post I mentioned that I got a great chance to participate in Blogger Challenge via Dixie Outlet Mall. Here’s a second round-up on various stores and exciting deals I found there while visiting them for my spring outfit challenge. This was my first visit to Dixie Outlet mall since I live in downtown so never got a chance to explore it. To my surprise, it was flooded with high brands and their great deals. I walked in that mall from end-to-end for at least four rounds to explore each and every shop inside out.  I personally even checked men’s shops as well as kids, so that I can come with my family for our next shopping trip. Each and every shop has deals and prices were comparably way less than regular stores price.

I was asked to get a spring outfit for me and the shops which I personally hunted my deals from are Levis, Aldo, Guess, Urban Planet, Tommy Hilfiger, Nine West.


Family Trip To Legoland Discovery Centre Toronto

Few weeks back I was invited to take a visit to a newly opened Legoland Discovery Centre in Vaughan Mills in Toronto. I was ecstatic but was skeptical whether it will be good place for us to go with toddlers, since by this age they hardly figure out what exactly Lego fun is all about. But to my surprise, my kids (2-year-old twins) totally enjoyed it and it was worth the visit. Read ahead to know things I noticed and worth the point to know before you visit.

The Kimono Trend

Street style has been recently flooded with Kimono Trend. It is one of the bohemian staple piece and it brings lot of attention. This is one of the most extraordinary trend from Japanese culture. Wear it with simple tank or tee with a great pair of denim and it changes the complete look. Celebrities are the one who are using it in most of the casual wearings. It goes very well with a pencil skirt and camisole too. Keep the rest of your look streamlined and modern to avoid looking an over do. Miley Cyrus is a big fan of the kimono jacket.

“She Who Hunts Finds” Blogger Challenge

Fashion outlets are the best place to get the deals specially, when it comes to high-end brand which are mostly unaffordable. Another problem with the outlets stores are finding them since they are scattered around the city so it takes like infinity to actually shop at them. But when I heard of Dixie Outlet Mall, I was so excited to visit and get my favourite brands at much reasonable prices under one roof. Their deals are widely known as  #DixieDeals.


It is located at 1250 South Service Road Mississauga, ON L5E 1V4 (along the Queen Elizabeth Highway & Dixie Road). Dixie Outlet Mall is one of Canada’s largest enclosed outlet shopping centres having more than 135 stores. They have great brands like Tommy Hilfiger Outlet, GUESS Factory Store, Boathouse Outlet, Aeropostale, Levis Outlet, Winners, Nine West Shoe Studio and Laura Outlet. Isn’t that amazing?

Blogger Challenge – Fortunately, I was asked to participate in “She Who Hunts Finds” Blogger Challenge where I will be provided with $200 Dixie Mall Outlet Gift card to use against all my purchases. I have to create a spring outfit from varied stores with great deals and to save as much money off the full retail price as possible. Focus is more on ‘savings’ through deals. I am very excited to participate in this challenge with other fellow GTA bloggers.
