My favourite accessory from the FW13 runways was hands-down the jeweled crowns from the Dolce and Gabbana show. Maybe not the most practical or sensical for the average woman, but sometimes you just gotta throw caution to the wind and get decked out in whatever way makes sense to you. And these ornate golden crowns make sense to me. I especially love the way they coordinate with the oversized gold earrings and decorative garments. We've got some beautiful vintage ornate earrings in stock and may even have one vintage golden crown hanging around somewhere (that is if you can pry it from my strong grip).
I'm really loving the new Wren collection designed by the amazing Leith Clark. Most people know Leith as the editor of Lula Magazine and fashion stylist to the stars. Now she can add fashion designer to her resume with her collaboration with one of my favourite lines, Wren. Shot in L.A. and starring the wonderful Kirtsen Dunst the collection has nods to the 60s, some amazing tees and cute patterns. Also did we mention the extremely-talented Leith Clark is originally from Oakville? Yup!
Love these simple polaroid-style shots.
We just got in a great new shipment of Out of Print clothing, totes and accessories! This company is based out of Brooklyn and has an amazing concept: design cool and comfy pieces using classic book covers as artwork and with each sale donate a book to communities in Africa. Pretty cool, no?

Editor's Note: As a girl, I know there is nothing cuter than a boy who reads, so a boy in a book shirt? Sign us up!
The resort collections are always my favourite to drool over and this season I'm crazy for Collette Dinnigan's work. I've been feeling inspired by all that is the South of France these days...feminine silhouettes, pastels mixed with deep corals and aquas and nods to nautical style. Her collection encapsulates all these things and is heavily rooted in 60's style. Check out some of my favourite looks!

Just when we think we're set for sunny weather, we get a day like today. Grey, damp and cool. The best way to combat these gloomy days is with a cute little rain outfit (followed by an old movie marathon)! We have some cute and cozy raincoats, puddle jumping boots and umbrellas perfect for singing in the rain! Plus some Holly Golightly-inspired trench coats. So get in your coziest sweater, pull up those rainboots, put that hair in a bun and come on by for some lovely little things! (*Warning: anyone with a cozy bed and cat or two may find it EXTREMELY difficult to leave house on a day like today. It's ok, we completely understand.)
our rainy day picks: Out of Print tote bag ($22), Stay Home Pennant ($12), Vintage Umbrella ($14), Rain Booties ($34) and Reversible Vintage Rain Coat ($34)
