Grab of the Week: a mood ring for nostalgia’s sake (and for a good cause)


Published:

If you told us you had never heard of a mood ring because you weren’t around in the ’70s, we wouldn’t believe you. We can’t think of one girl since the ring’s invention in 1975 that hasn’t been intrigued by the idea of a wearable liquid crystal thermometer. How else are we to ever know how we are truly feeling inside?

Mood rings are back, and this time they’re bigger and better than ever. As of this month, some limited-edition mood rings have hit The Bay across Canada in stores and online.

Wearing this ring supports Partners for Mental Health. Did you know that only one third of Canadians who need mental health care actually receive it? Slip this on to help create some awareness.

$10. Available at The Bay, 176 Yonge St., 416-861-9111

Lo and behold, we’re about to ring in Canada’s sesquicentennial this very weekend. For many this means donning the ole red and white combo but for others, something a touch less expected is desired. Leave it to Smythe — one of the country’s most revered labels — to whip up a garment that celebrates being Canadian in an incredibly chic manner.

Local Love: Sliding into the footwear trend of the summer with a local designer

This summer, it’s all about the slide. Perfect for those who hate dealing with fiddly sandal buckles, it’s hard not to fall for the charms of the shoe that exudes low-key elegance. One of the season’s best finds hails from Toronto’s very own Zvelle line.
