It's September issue time, friends! I love September issues because they are really just big picture books...I'm not reading them for the articles!
Here is something we don't see everyday in the shop: leather gloves! I love the vintage look of these gloves (but they are not vintage, they are from Aldo).
This chambray shirt from Anthropologie is perfect! I love the cut, the material is so nice and soft, and the colour is a nice, clear blue.
So this Simons layered top is a boxy, black crop over a built-in white tank.....
...but what makes it special is the back!
How awesome are these suede boots?! They nailed the green so it doesn't look too "Robin Hood". I didn't try these on for you (sorry!), but I'm thinking they wear a bit slouchy which keeps them looking edgy.
If this blazer was just lace throughout it would already be unique, but the added chambray structural details make it a real stand-out!
And check out the charming label!
This cozy Aritzia crop sweater is made of merino wool, one of my favourite fibres!
We have a bunch of locally made, hand-knit head-bands/ear-warmers by Go Gidget Go.
There are lots of different colours and styles to choose from!
This sweater from Noul is also made of wool!
OK, and one more woolly number: this asymmetrically built cardigan from Anthropologie; check-out how it ruffles on one side but not the other!
And hey look, it's a button with a message!
This lovely Anne Klein shift dress:
Look at the adorable little grommets around the neckline!
We carry a line of hand-made jewellery that I've mentioned before, Darling Gems, which so far had been precious stones source from Salt Spring Island made into necklaces and earrings with sterling silver, but now we also have a few made of 14K gold! I love how delicate the gold looks, and this opaque stone is a two-toned "jasper" stone.
Bright green and bold flowers could look really vintage and funky, but this JCrew top is silk and has a great feminine and elegant shape:
What's so special about this top?
A safety pin print!
For fall and spring, here is a great Gentle Fawn jacket:
Look at the great print in the hood!
This understated, asymmetrical Lululemon vest is also great for the changing temperatures.
This dress is even more simple than it looks...the waistband is elastic, so no bunching or fussing!
These hard-working boots are vegan, friends!
We should be getting a shipment of Hue items shortly; I've already forgotten what we ordered so it'll be a surprise for all of us! There is still one week left to get 10% off your purchase for being a friend of the blog! The last day is August 31, and the code word is "mermaid".
