Show some love
It’s the last weekend of July and finally summer in ALL parts of Canada. Our interns tell us Vancouver is finally getting in on some heat action, that TO has been hoggin the past few months. To celebrate, we dug up some beautiful photos, post Stanley Cup…and the issues that occurred, by Vancouver local, Alexis Jackson. A lot of ♥ took place after that incident, and this photographer...

Kickin It With Primary Colours

This old trick in the book is a classic. It’s easy to wear, fun to pair up, and slims you down, despite a lack of black. We took inspiration from Gucci SS 2011 and of course, Jil Sander, the colour-blocking power house, for our September look book! As Alexia, our head of creative would say, colour-blocking is as fun as “fruit loops”. Src: Ruby Aldridge Src:...
Socks and Sandals
I always envy the girls who can pull off the socks and sandals look. They make it look so effortless and easy that I’m always fiendishly trying to find the perfect pair of socks in my sock drawer. We’ve put together a few images of our fav ways to wear this ensemble, high heels or not, these ladies give this look a good name. Src: Vanessa Jackman Src:...
Iman, I love you.
I never miss an opportunity to pay tribute to the supers, especially one as legendary as IMAN! With either an abundance of jewelry or nothing at all, she is style (and her husband’s all right too!) Meet the Somalian goddess: In Mary McFadden jewelry for Vogue 1977. Shot by Peter Beard in the pictures below, who discovered her in 1975.

Tibetan Jewelry at Its Best
This is how you jazz up the white T.
A pair of palazzo pants/wide-leg culottes I have in my closet. Suprisingly versatile, with the comfort of wide-leg trousers and the timeless look of a long pleated skirt. I break these out for the really chic dinners and events.
what is hiding under your pants?
Readers, meet your new summer pants. This week we explore the PALAZZO pant. The waist : high & fitted The leg : flares from the hip and is the widest of the wide, making you look itty bitty.
vintage and lace, oh my!
