Club Monaco lace skirt
I am beyond in love with this skirt. Even though it’s not technically “basic”, I can always think of a new way to wear it and have found it’s been just as amazing in the winter as it was in the summer. Its cream tone also makes it so easy to pair with other colours, and the scalloped lace texture makes it special enough to stand alone with simple styling.
Twenty8Twelve leather jacket
I have a bit of a beautiful love story with this leather jacket. I found it at Holt Renfrew during one of their big sales, and initially wasn’t quite sold on it just from seeing it on the hanger. Then the staff told me it was the last one and consequently the price had been even further reduced that day. Thinking that I might as well try it on, I slipped into it and then, to my surprise, immediately felt at home. I find it’s the perfect shade of grey, one that’s easy enough to pair with both cool and warm tones, and it’s literally the softest leather I’ve ever felt. The little details like the criss-crossed double zipper and cut-away lapels make it a great statement piece on its own, though I’ve become so dependent on it that I usually just use it as a staple piece. Worth every penny.
Club Monaco leopard clutch
This one was a no-brainer…you just need a great leopard piece in your closet. When I spotted this beautiful clutch in Club Monaco, I knew I had to have it – it was the perfect shape, the perfect print, and the perfect colour combination. I’ve used it so much that it’s literally paid for itself in terms of a cost to wear ratio (which is the system I use to rationalize and justify all my purchases). If you don’t own a great leopard accessory, put it right at the top of your list! So timeless and glamorous.
On another note, a few girls I know put together this stunning video shoot. I’m loving that they’re fully dressed in both Aritzia and vintage pieces. Such a great way of showing how you can mix the old with the new to great effect. Be sure to check out my girlfriend Jenny’s tumblr where you can see the video’s details!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend lovelies!
