Remember when I felt bad about forcing winter finds on you a few weeks ago because it seemed too early? Well suddenly it's winter here, and you and I are well prepared!
I am certain that this dress is from our friends at Rowena. It's just a feeling, given the retro look of the dress, that little bow, and the great colour. (PS Rowena's new location is on Whyte Ave and 105 street!)
This gorgeous Anthropologie shirt is printed on the front with a sweater-knit back and arms:
...and it has pockets! They are well camouflaged, square front pockets, so look closely:
What's this? MORE Chie Mihara?!
Yes it's winter-fall (wintall? Finter?) now, but I couldn't not share these with you. I would wear those brown ones with thick Hue tights (which, hey, we also have in the store!).
I was so happy to find this chic tunic! Sometimes tunics can be a little ho-hum, but this one is different: the winter colours with the warm-climate print is unexpected and genius!
Plus it has cute buttons at the collar:
Ooooooo, I love this cropped jean jacket! The indigo is the perfect tone and the red reinforcement stitching signals that it is "casual" jean jacket (Ecko Red would call it "street"), as opposed to dressier denim. I would wear this under my winter coat and let it be part of the outfit, like a cardigan.
But my favourite part of this jacket is the white and red piping inside!
For friends in-the-know, here is your high-end trophy find: two Missoni tops!
Channel your inner Iris Apfel with these chunky bangles:
This absolutely gorgeous Tory Burch top is wool (perfect for wintall/finter!) with a silk lining!
Check out the exquisite beading across the collar and down the front:
Hey, look at that: Lolë makes belts!
Two sister-dresses from Aritzia:
And check out the tag:
We've had the Hue leggings, jeggings and tights in for a couple of weeks now, and now we finally got our first shipment of socks! We have lots of styles in, including my friend (and yours!) Danielle's favourite: the super-soft boot sock!
This lovely Urban Outfitters art-gallery-curator top:
I first grabbed this sweater thinking it was a regular cool, vintage, wool sweater, but it is so much more than that! Royal Robbins has such a detailed and rigorous social responsibility policy that it even made ME sweat! Along with dedicated environmental practices, this company also has a plan for the after-life of its products. Specifically, when the first owner no longer has a need for the item, they want that item to go to another wearer (rather than a landfill or a pay-per-pound exporting outfit). And here it is at Red Pony fulfilling its Royal Robbins destiny to be re-worn and re-loved by someone else!
This tag still reads vintage to me, plus it's wool!
Do we have your winter needs covered or what?! Along with new socks, we have a large assorment of mittens and hats too!
From Vancouver comes this one-of-kind coat designed by artist Terry Sasaki. Terry was (is!) a painter who wanted to broaden his scope of visual art and dove into fashion. He is as mindful in his fashion creations as he is his paintings, designing to flatter differing body types and also to be functional: he insists on pockets!
So our Laura takes the pictures for the Red Pony Instagram, and they are consistently amazingly simple and yet so captivating! I'm always trying to copy her. Here is my attempt at a taking a Laura-esque photo of some of the beautiful knit scarfs we have in the shop right now. (That top scarf is chunky and super long!)
So next Wednesday (October 19th) I will be on-site at Red Pony all day! You should pop in and say hi. We can talk blog and fashion, and maybe I will make a "mistake" at the computer and "accidentally" give you discount on your purchase (wink-wink).
In the meantime: stay warm, friends!
