The Apt613 Style File: Great Glebe Garage Sale Edition

By Apartment613 on June 1, 2011

Stephan Telka takes the reins for Apartment613’s Style File team this week, giving our usual fashionista-finders Melanie Yugo and Lauryn Kronick a break. All photos and text by Stephan.

While there was no shortage of “yoga” pants and Mountain Equipment Coop/North Face gear on display at yesterday’s Great Glebe Garage Sale (not to mention the wares for sale), I was lucky enough to cross paths with a handful of Ottawans who stood out from the crowd. I doff my hat to them, as they effortlessly rose the fashion bar on a rainy Saturday morning.
