  • Oktoberfest

    As part of the International Village, we'll be celebrating with the Oktoberfest tomorrow! Sure, it's only the end of August, but what better time to celebrate the end of summer with beer, music and shopping! We'll be having a special sidewalk sale tomorrow from 12-5 and will have some new fall items hitting the racks.

    I've always loved collecting vintage from different cultures, and anything German or European folksy is one of my absolute favourites. It's not uncommon for me to buy a pair of leiderhosen that would only fit a baby or an old dirndl just because. I love the care and time put into these special pieces and the whole decorative and traditional style amazes me. 

    For more information on the festival, go here: Oktoberfest in International Village 

    Check out some images from my first ever lookbook, inspired by Oktoberfest and featuring pieces from my vintage collection:

  • Loly in the Sky

    We are so excited to announce a new line of shoes we are now carrying: Loly in the Sky. Designed and manufactured in Mexico City by talented shoe designer and all-around cutie, Lorena Vasquez, these flats add a little fun and wonder to your everyday wardrobe!

     

    Inspired by all things lovely, feminine and quirky, the line of shoes are made from natural materials handpicked in Mexico and lovingly screen-printed with various cute designs. What I love most about the shoes is how they are light as a feather making them a perfect travel shoe- either for day-to-day or faraway journeys. 

    We picked four styles that we thought were perfect for fall and have a range of sizes available! I'm already planning all the cute fall outfits I'm going to wear with each of these pairs!

    Abril, Erika, Carla and Fernanda. $42/pair

    Available exclusively at Girl on the Wing
