I can't decide on what is the best part of these Tory Burch grannies. The patent leather? The tan colour? The vintagey shape? I love all of it!
For a grey and cloudy day, here is a grey and cloudy t-shirt from Brits All Saints:
This is the kind of vintagey look I love in a dress (could go with the Tory Burch shoes!):
I have no idea where this surely one-of-a-kind purse comes from, but it is marvelous! It features the cover of Paul McCartney's 1982 solo album "Tug of War" on one side......
...and the actual vinyl record on the other side!!!
I love this simple, light mohair sweater. Mohair, by the way, comes from the Angora goat (who looks like a sheep) and NOT from a bread of rabbit called "mo" like I believed when I was younger....like,in my twenties....ok, my thirties...
This sweater loves you too:
A great edgy, flowey tank from Urban Outfitters:
The print is cute (even though I don't know what's going on in it!); I love the branches and dangley pocket-watch!
This lovely little sweater comes from Canadian designer and maker Melody Cebula and her label Precocious. Much like Preloved, Melody makes all her creations from existing clothes that have been discarded. She has a super interesting video about the process on her website. (While doing a mental self-scan of all the clothes I have owned, EVER, I realized that I met her and bought a sweater from her at a Toronto craft sale with my friend Marga 10 years ago! Way to persevere, Canadian designer!).
These Fossil shoes looked like they just walked off of a Wes Anderson film!
From our friends at Noul, this awesome mustard yellow skirt:
Just like Royal Robbins last week, Ibex is one of those outdoor clothier companies that believe in sustainability and the life-time quality of their garments. This zipper sweater is made of 100% merino wool from sheep that are certified to ensure "environmental, social and economic sustainability, animal welfare, traceability and quality". Friends, they even have a breakdown of what their sheep are doing while they are growing their wooly coats (like hanging out free range with horses and dogs)!
I love the feminine flower print on this sweater, and check out the curved cuffs!
A couple of great booties (including from one of my favourite shoe designers, Sam Edelman!):
I love the large buttons and nobby texture of this Free People cardigan:
To avoid becoming bitter and resentful I've decided to just accept that it is winter now, rather than hoping for some weather-miracle to turn this ship around. And, hey, look at all the great wool pencil-skirts we have in the shop to get you through winter!
The BFF team at Amuse Society agree with my accepting-winter approach, so, you know, just amuse:
In case you didn't know what the cat was up to, here's the punchline on the back!
What does that top remind me off? That's right friends, any excuse to pull out this old gem from last winter!
While I was at Red Pony today, the host of one of my favourite podcasts EVER, Oh Witch Please, came in!! (You should listen to it! Start at the first episode). I heard her voice and then I got really sweaty and had a hugely uncool fan-girl moment. She was very gracious about it, and let me take a picture with her!
