It’s official, my countdown is now totally on!! I am beyond excited to be heading to Coachella this year { remember the promise I made my self last year } along with various other spots along the Californian coast line. A bit of a dream trip many years in the making. We’ll have one night in LA and, if I had it my way { well technically I do, I just don’t have the outfit } here’s what I would be wearing -

Sass & Bide – The Big Go sequin-embellished cotton jersey tank
Current/Elliott – The Stiletto cropped low-rise skinny jeans
Acne – Donna textured leather ankle boots
Rag & Bone – Floppy Brim Fedora in purple
Bing Bang NYC – Crystal Shard Ring Rose
Chanel – Le Vernis Nail Colour in Emprise
Super Sunglasses – Panama Glasses
Theory – Tivona stretch-crepe blazer
Zara – Cut Work tote bag

Here’s wishing! xx

everlane comes to canada

everlane

When I stumbled upon Everlane about a year ago I wished very much that their products would be available to Canadians. It’s not very often that a company pushes so hard for something like that, but Everlane did. With their #CrowFundCanada campaign they have made their way North!

quote

Since then, I’ve been obsessed with their clean lines, cheeky spirit, and luxurious basics at reasonable prices. It’s all about transparency; their MO is cutting out the middleman in order to pass mega savings along to their customers. Works for me, and can’t wait to place my first order! xx

textures + textiles

Print

I always seem to be drawn to textures and textiles when ever I am looking for inspiration. The gals at the Block Shop { image two } are creating beautiful block dyed scarves and that lace in the first, used in Marissa Webbs Spring/Summer ’13 collection, is so delicately beautiful. It’s hand spun and hand woven from genuine natural Indian cotton. In addition to hand weaving the base fabric, fabric artisans hand embroider and hand cut eyelets – perfect! Happy Sunday xx

Obviously, tigers are all the rage. They are everywhere from clothing, to jewelery, to home accessories! For a quick { inexpensive } fix I picked up this Zara Tiger-Print Blouse that I am in love with. And, if you’re up for spending a bit more, you could always splurge on an iconic Kenzo Tiger Embroidery Sweatshirt { well actually you probably can’t because they are eternally sold out ! } Or, for something in between, be inspired by the above. xx

at the library


Wouldn’t it be nice to imagine days spent lazing around the library in a big leather club chair; reading your favourite books, sipping on a coffee, making endless lists…? I wish!

Snowed in over the weekend, I did just finish up one of my new favorites { a major tearjerker } The Fault In Our Stars. SUCH an amazing book. I highly recommend this young-adult love story. In fact, I highly recommend anything by author John Green. xx

textiles & closet space

Ok, so gearing up for a comeback is not such an easy task. There’s a lot of umm what if I can’t do it, ahhh what if it’s not like it was before et cetera, et cetera. Step one, I suppose, would be to get rid of those negative thoughts right. Ok, so then what? Step two, find inspiration in new ways. Queue stumbling upon Allison Watkins. California-based Allison Watkins is an artist whose work combines art and fashion in an very intriguing and inspiring new way! I love the idea of bringing your carefully curated closet out from behind closed doors. Why not let each zig – zag, each polka – dot, and splash of colour come to life! Allison says;

I’m mainly attracted to the color, pattern, and texture of material – it’s so seductive.  This is partly what drew me to the closet as a subject to embroider. A closet can be full of memories, and the eclectic nature of a persons wardrobe is what draws me to it.

I absolutely adore it and hope you are feeling inspired on this fresh Wednesday morning! xx
