As expected, when I stepped away for one week there was massive turnover at the shop and so many amazing things came out! (And the backroom is bursting with great new stock too!)
First, this outfit (which I can't take credit for, it was already on the mannequin when I came in. But it's so perfect, isn't it?) is actually two pieces: a great peach strapless top (with exposed zipper in the back), and a bold floral skirt -with pockets(!)- from Anthropologie:
Also from Anthropologie this adorable green and lace jacket:
Can you see the great scalloped pockets?!
This beautiful shrug was actually the first thing that grabbed my attention when I came in. The satin material, and the elegant coral on black print are stunning!
How's the colour on your screen? Because I'm crazy for this light, sea-foam green colour; it's so perfectly ethereal!
Over at Matt Bernson they only use "small-batch" materials, which means there are fewer of the same items floating around in the world. I can totally see how there wouldn't be another pair of sandals out there exactly the same as these!
Hey look! Another dress from Anthropologie! I can't help it, I'm such a sucker for this type of vintage cut (plus it has pockets!)!
I forgot to take a picture of this tag....it's a Paper Crane top, with a bird print on it!
I can't wait for summer to show off backs of things like this!
This bag is a Lululemon beach bag, and true to Lululemon form has all sorts of pockets and pull-outs in it. In fact, the entire inner-bag comes out to be a bag on it's own!
I'm loving the bold colours on this dress, plus it's silk!
Friends, you know how I love a shot of orange in fashion: such an unexpected colour. And you also know I love a bag that can stand up on its own. Well, ta-dah!
This charming faux-two-piece dress with a scalloped, beaded and lace peter-pan collar:
I just love the sleek, thick, modern straps on the otherwise classic shape of these Steve Madden wedges!
Sheesh, I know: we're like an Anthropologie outlet this week! But there are always sustainable, unique and known-origin gems to be found, like this great dress from British fair-trade company Nomads:
And for a vegan, water-proof (and super-adorable!) sensible shoe:
And now, the moment we have been waiting for....a peek at the back room!
Then on the other side of the room: a whole other rack!
Yes, we see you Matt & Nat!
And I peeked at the apple print dress behind the Matt & Nat....it's Emily and Finn!!
I was away last week visiting my friend Laura in Saskatoon, staying up late in our sweat-pants and catching up on "Girls"!
