Joseph Ribkoff: Canadian fashion company

You never know what treasures you’ll find thrifting. Case in point–this chic faux suede jacket made in Canada by Joseph Ribkoff. Shopping at Goodwill and secondhand shops is easy on the budget, great for the environment and helps support a good cause. Win, win, win!

Joseph Ribkoff is a Canadian designer who started his own business in the fashion industry in 1957 when he was only 21 years old. His company is known for quality, high fashion and timeless classic styles.

After retiring from hairdressing, my mother worked for Holt Renfrew (high-end Canadian retail store) for a few years and I became familiar with Joseph Ribkoff fashion as well as other famous designers like Diane Von Furstenberg. I can’t afford to shop at Holt Renfrew so it’s a delight to find these luxury brands while searching through thrift stores.

I share Joseph Ribkoff’s sentiments …

“We design for a state of mind—for a woman that feels young.”

“We focus in on a fit for a woman who is anywhere from 40 to 80 years old. However, the women who wear our clothes don’t see themselves as older; they feel young.” ~Joseph Ribkoff

When I started blogging 8 years ago I wanted to encourage women no matter our age that we can look good and feel great!

  • Staying young –  having a positive outlook and good attitude.
  • Keeping active – various forms of physical activities according to interests and abilities.
  • Living healthy – eating nutritious, plant-based food, getting proper rest, taking care of skin and hair.
  • Being fashionable – having fun with style; clothes, shoes and accessories.

Thank you for helping me to reach almost 300,000 hits and almost 2000 followers. I appreciate everyone who has stopped by to read and click the like button, and especially those who take time to comment.

Everyone who reads my blog knows I love SLOW FASHION.

      Thank you so much Gail! These are faux suede shoes that I bought in Seattle at
      Ross Dress for Less. They are very comfortable and I love the little peep-toes.
