If you're Canadian, you know about The Bay. (If your last name is Hudson, you tend to think of it more frequently than the average person.) It's a department store, not unlike Macy's, but super old, having begun in the 1600s as a fur trading post. How utterly Canadian, I know.
For many of us, The Bay has always been a place your Grandma shopped or a store you'd cut through to get out of the mall. As a kid I remember thinking it was just so big! Some locations were on multiple floors, for goodness sakes!
As I get older, it's become a place I buy underwear and one I cut through to get out of the mall. But as The Bay shifts its focus and takes on a more glamourous place in retail, it's also where I have my first-ever "contributor" role, in the new social pages of The B Insider (that's what she said). It's a blog/online magazine/digital style file. There will be swishy party photos as well as beauty and style advertorials (like this swoon-worthy Boys with Beards story) and much more. I'm totally thrilled to be involved. Get on board and follow their Twitter here.
