Labour of Love - Getting Ready for Valentine's Day

Ok, you romantic fools, fashionistas and fellas out there: We're a couple of weeks away from Valentine's Day, which means you may want to pick up a little something special for the one you love (no pressure). One of my best friends asked me to come shopping with him to pick up a gift for his Valentine. I'm keeping his identity hidden in case his girlfriend happens to read this and she'll know what she's getting for Valentine's Day. So we went to one of the sweetest stores in my neighbourhood of Cabbagetown - Labour of Love.
Labour of Love is loaded full of sweet treats, cards, gorgeous jewelry, unique gifts, household decorations, and many of the items come from local artists. 
Now on to the style aspect of this style post. You see this grey top I'm wearing? Well I'm wearing it backwards. Yes, on purpose. No, I'm not nuts. The front of the top is pretty low cut, and I always have to wear a tank underneath, which ruins the look. Since I've noticed the whole backwards cardigan trend is so big year, I thought I'd turn this top around. What do you think?

And tadaaa...this is the lovely gift for my friend's Valentine. A beautiful fresh water pearl, made to look like it's a pea in a pod in silver. So lovely. So romantic.
Labour of Love is located in downtown Toronto at 242 Carl­ton Street, just west of Parliament. And you can check out their website:
