You are going to get so many compliments and people stopping to ask where you got this shirt, friends! (It's originally from the Netherlands, but you can say you got it at Red Pony!). Want some history to go with your shirt? "Le Chat Noir" was a 1896 advertisement poster by French artist Théophile Steinlen. The ad was for a new touring cabaret show featuring performers from the Le Chat Noir cabaret.
I tried this amazing suede fringe-coat on for you, and it was AWESOME. There is SO MUCH FRINGE! As always, let's give credit: fringe coats were originally worn by First Nations people. The fringe would help to wick away moisture from the garment (the water would drip off the fringes). In order to ensure minimal waste, fringes were typically made from the left-over pieces of animal skin that had been put to other uses. The fringe was practical, yes, but also decorative and stylised! Fringe style varied by region; garments worn in more wooded areas would have shorter fringes to avoid getting caught or tangled in branches.
Yes, these awesome shoes are Fly London; and yes, that is an ankle strap!
This wool Anthropologie coat is a great take on the traditional toggle-coat.....
...and the furry cuffs are removable!
A brand new, delightful little dress:
For those of you Blundstone fans (salut Ginette!), we have a pair of the "chunk sole" style. (The size says 6.5, but they looked a bit bigger than that to me, so you'll have to come in and try them on!).
Another fringe coat! This flannel high-low coat is by new designers Pepin from New York:
The contrasting fringe goes across the front, the pockets, and across the back!
Surprisingly, Canadian West-Coast brand Mia Melon is actually specialised in snow-board gear and outerwear....and at least one super-cute, one-piece dress!
I love the feminine contrast of the lace work to the solid functionality of the foot part of this boot! From established Spanish boot company Bunker, these ones still have their tags on them lovingly detailing their dye process.
This BCBG laser cut suede jacket does an amazing job of combining edgy with elegant:
Designer Charlotte Linton used to be specialised in printing scarves and now combines "hand-drawing and digital print techniques" to the garments. This silk blouse is just stunning; I almost want to frame it!
It's the other fringe: the fringe dress! Here is something that you don't come across everyday, but that we all secretly want (amiright?)! This dress isn't cutting any corners: the upper bodice has boning to keep everything in place (while you are dancing the Charleston), and the texture of the fringe is consistent throughout and solidly attached.
Remember the taun-taun fur coat from the back room last week? Here it is:
It turns out it is not tuan-tuan fur, or any type of real fur, but it is a perfect condition vintage coat! The lining is still intact, and check out the buttons and the cuff:
And, friends, the new Hue leggings and tights are in! We have lots of different styles (Jeggings! Leggings! Tights!) and all sizes!
