Goodbye Danier Leather

I am sure you have a favorite store and that it always makes you happy to go there or even just to check out what is new online.  That store to me is Danier Leather so you can imagine my extreme sadness when it was announced that they will be closing all of their stores very soon.  It truly is sad to see another Canadian company closing it's doors after 44 years.  There are many different reasons why people say that Danier will be closing but to me it doesn't matter why they are closing but that they are closing at all!

 

 

I can remember purchasing my first leather jacket from Danier over 15 years ago.  The way the jacket fit and the way it made me feel when I put it on was like nothing I ever felt.  Of course my first leather jacket was not your typical piece that most people would pick but instead I picked a gorgeous soft white one.  This white leather jacket that I couldn't live without just happens to be the one that I am wearing in this blog post today.  I thought that it would be fitting to wear it to say goodbye to my favorite store.  

 

 

I have purchased so many pieces from Danier over the years as I was immediately hooked from my first purchase.  I even have an entire closet at home dedicated to all of my cherished Danier Leather pieces.  Not only have I gotten the most amazing things from there which includes a pair of cropped leather overalls but I have also come to know some of the employees incredibly well.  Some of them I even consider to be life long friends.  It wasn't just a store to me but more like a family and that meant the world to me.  

 

 

I wanted to thank Danier for always making such beautiful things, making me look great day after day and being an overall fabulous company!

 

So Goodbye Danier Leather you will be missed!

It's a pity when a shop closes its doors. Specially when you liked it very much. Btw, the phone clutch is to die for. Jasmine x Jas Claire

I like you, am very sad to see them go. I bought so many pieces from that store I was considered a Prestige member. Like you, everyone knew me and it was a fun place to visit. Such a shame that we are losing yet another Canadian icon. I've never seen another company that did Leather as well as Danier. bisous Suzanne http://www.suzannecarillo.com

Yes it a sad loss for Canada to lose such an iconic store. The clothing pieces were very classy and very well made, accessories were always in style with the seasons, colors were always beautiful. Your outfit is beautiful as usual and that leather jacket will be in your wardrobe I'm sure for many years to come, a great reminder of a wonderful Canadian Store.

Oh gosh, that's rough, losing a store that has been around for ages! At least you managed to get a few fabulous pieces from them! That leather jacket is gorgeous!

As always I love everything about this look. Your handbag - just another one - hahaha - is more than great . Being inspired by your (and I have to be honest one more fashion blogger ;) ) ideas about hats I have just presented a fascinator in my blog www.iameverywoman.eu . The jacket combined with this smart dress and other accessories looks beautiful. Have a great evening Margot :)

I am so sad to hear this news. I loved seeing you wear these fabulous jackets, and it is sad that another company can not compete in today's business world. Love your striped dress and great bag xx, Elle http://www.theellediaries.com/

Oh no, I'm so sorry that your favorite store is closing! I know the feeling of loving a place and having it close, it really is such a shame. Nonetheless, I love your outfit! You always have the best novelty purses, I adore this one! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have an amazing week ahead! XO, Jalisa www.thestylecontour.com

I understand what you mean about losing more than a store. It becomes habit, where we shop for certain items and the loss really can seem disorienting. My favourite fabric store just went out of business, and yes there are other shops but it isn't the same. I know it sounds like the epitome of "first world problems" but now I need to spend time thinking about where to buy fabric/buttons/etc, and it will never quite seem as satisfying because it will just be a transaction-not visiting a place I enjoy and knowing the employees. I'm sorry you've lost a favourite place-it DOES hurt.
