Have you ever wanted to be a model? What about winning a shopping spree? The good folks at Toronto’s favourite outdoor store, Camp Connection, take care of both of those things with their #CAMPface contest.


Each month, the #CAMPface contest begins anew – opening on the 1st and closing on the 14th. Winner(s) are chosen from eligible entries received during that time frame. They are then invited to Camp Connection to take part in a professional photo shoot with Toronto photographer hckygrlphoto and get their shop on.


In February, the very first #CAMPface winner, Sophie, modeled some of the latest and greatest products from Levi’s, Dandelion and more. Check out some behind-the-scenes footage from her day:

Cursive Spotlight: Hot Winter Fashion Trends


Winter is officially here! While we have had some warmer weather lately, it is time to bring out those parkas – or go shopping for some – to get you through the cold winter season. We’ve put together some of the hottest winter jacket trends that will keep you warm and cozy during the holidays. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or a loved one, check out these comfortable trends.



Add Some Length. The growing trend for men and women in winter coats is to add a little length. Stray from the classic bomber and stay even warmer this winter. This style is perfect if you do a lot of walking outside.


Army Hues. Green is the new black when it comes to coat colours. Khakis, greens and army browns are all the rage in winter wear this season. Army hues are neutral and go with everything, while still adding a hint of colour as opposed to greys and blacks.


Bomber Style. The bomber jacket will always be in style. It is the perfect coat to just throw on, get in the car, and go! This style goes with absolutely everything and is the most versatile of coats.


Quilted Love. Quilted patterns are everywhere this season. Particularly on the longer winter parka, the quilted look is so simple, yet elegant and unique at the same time. The quilted coat makes a statement without trying too hard.


Go Bright or Go Home. Just because the season can be bland doesn’t mean your winter coat should be, too. Why not add a bright pop of colour to a gloomy, grey and white winter? Reds, pinks and blues are becoming more prominent in winter wear this season.


Camp Connection is stocked with all of your winter needs for everyone in your family! They are also having a 50/50 Winter Coat sale on the hottest winter trends – spend $50 on winter accessories and receive 50% off any winter coat. Take a look at their selection here!

According to the blogTO team, “Not only does Camp Connection stock their shelves with the necessary base layers for outdoor enthusiasts, including Hot Chillys and Truro’s own Stanfields underwear, they also stock onesies (which are technically not underwear, but deserve our appreciation nonetheless).”
