I figure since it’s gay pride in Calgary this weekend, what better time to write about the limited edition Magenta Collection at Holts! For their 175th anniversary, Holts worked with some pretty awesome designers for some limited edition pieces that are exclusive to the store. Some of the items include Christian Louboutin heels (not my fave – a little much), Valentino heels (pretty), an Etro jersey top (cool on the right person but not a fan of jersey), a Smythe tuxedo blazer (love), an Alice + Olivia peplum dress (good price and they’ll sell tons), Manolo Blahniks (super good looking and a good buy), Jimmy Choos (OK but not the best), a Max Mara purse ($3,840 says it all), a Kate Spade tote (cute), Alexis Bittar bracelet and necklace set (too matchy but the bracelet is cool on its own) and many others.
Other items in the collection include nail polish, hand cream, coca-cola 6 pack (?), and chocolates – but $150 seems a bit much for truffles. Maybe it’s just me.
If you’re a big fan of Holts, some of the items are pretty cool and are a good buy.
Congrats on 175 years Holts
