Our One and Only TROSMAN Spring Delivery!!!!

As usual, Argentinian designer Jessica Trosman delivers absolutely stunning, completely original pieces of wearable art for our one and only delivery from her for this season. This delivery is almost entirely made up of silk dresses, tunics and tops, and are the perfect sort of thing for the client who is looking for something really unique. The cutting and draping creates a very avant-garde (yet fun!) look, and is a real personal favorite of mine. I can't rave enough about how original and fabulous her pieces are, and this spring is a real highlight for her in my opinion.

You really need to come down and see it in real life!!

GinetteNY + Sunshine = PERFECTION!!!!!!!!!

Love it!! This gorgeous rose gold looks unbelievable on a tan, so the sunnier it gets, the more necessary the GinetteNY becomes...

SARTORE!!!!!!!!!! The Best Riding Boots EVER.

There are moments in footwear shopping that can only be compared to pure, unfettered bliss. This is one of these moments. I am so ecstatic, I am short of words.

ISABEL MARANT!! Spring 2009 Runway Delivery

A fabulously huge delivery from Isabel Marant! Unfortunately I can't post the photos we take ourselves, but I can tease you with runway photos! This embroidered top is phenomenal! There is also a tunic in the same fabric in emerald green, also amazing.

I'm not sure if this top (below) is actually a different piece, or this is just too long for her, but we have a top that looks exactly like this, only its much much shorter, and its black, and its fabulous! There are a few cousins to it as well, a dress in black (slightly different of course), and in beige, a top and a dress, both of which have more of a sleeve, and are fabulous! The fabric is a silk cotton blend, and is a sort of (amazing) canvas... hard to describe.

I guess with this delivery, you are just going to come in and see! Great flat black strappy gladiator sandals, a great casual scarf, boyfriend blazers, pants, dresses, linen tees! You don't want to miss it!!!!

We realized with the new deliveries of the scarves that lots of the styles hadn't made it into the earlier post... so here are a few of them...

Saturday, April 4, 2009


'Tis the season to strip ourselves of our North Face puffy jackets, Hunter gum boots and entirely black ensembles and emerge decked out in Faliero Sarti scarves, gladiator sandals and colour.
I understand that it's not always ideal to go fishing through magazine after magazine in search of the seasons most prominent trends and fashion forward buys, which is why we have designed a list in which you can refer to and we can have fun making!
So in no particular order, Misch's top faves for the current Spring season are:


As Alice likes to say "Alexander Wang is SO hot right now!!" - paying homage to Mugatu in Zoolander of course, she thinks it's funny..
But seriously, he is. Everythink he creates is the epitome of cool. I can't even stress how brilliant he is, so I won't even try. Just...so hot right now...


So, we all know the gladiator has made a massive comeback yet again this Spring, which I think is great, but I also feel the need to have provided to me a second "It" shoe option that will guide me through the summer sun with style. Tsumori Chisato has created this chic, funky yet incrediably versatile sandal that I am seeeriously coveting. Once you slip one on it's hard to take it off, so try on at your own risk.

(Tsumori Chisato, $495 CAD)


I love the tailored look. And I'm a huge sucker for suit jackets. But usually once a year (and hopefully more) it actually doesn't rain in Vancouver and we actually don't need as much coverage, which is why the vest was such a great fashion invention. They really edge up our flowy summer dresses, dress up our basic white T's, and just create that little extra interest in mostly any outfit.

(Hanni Y vest, $425 CAD)


Question: What's the easiest, most comfortable and chicest way to add style to the most basic tank, tee or cadigan?
Answer: The summer scarf.
Question: Which is the best way to emulate the whimsical beauties whose outfits we study each and every day on The Sartorialist?
Answer: Copy their everyday usage of scarves.
Question: Why don't you already own one of these?
Answer: Because until now you didn't realize what's best for you.

They're everywhere. Skirts, dresses, tops, cardigans, jackets even shoes. Obviously they're doing something right or they wouldn't be taking over the world like they are. That's right, ruffles are taking over the world.
Well, the fashion world at least...
(3.1 Phillip Lim, $578 CAD)


I love little black dresses, I do, they're classic, but don't you think it's time to take a break from the colour altogether? Winter's over, and we've all just covered ourselves in the shade for past 6 months straight, right? Perhaps we should attempt to venture off.
Spring and summer are the seasons of celebrations, graduations and weddings. The perfect dress to carry through all the festivities with grace is a must. Let's be honest, it's not really in all our cards to own a closet bursting with cocktail dresses for every occassion, so if you're dropping the dough just once, you have to make it count. With it's classic shape, feminine neckline, added edge (the studs on the straps and the zipper down the front) this Vena Cava number really sums up all you need or should ever want from a dress. Not to mention, it flatters every shape and fits like a - no, better - than a glove.
So for all of you who are still too attached to black to fully let it go, you can find a friend in this part-black, beautifully constructed dress for Spring.
(Vena Cava, $736 CAD)
I totally get the practicality of a roomy, slouchy oversized bag for fall, as it suits the overall look of the season (and provides space for your "in door" shoes) but for Spring, less is really more. With enough tiny compartments allowing you to give your wallet the boot, and a strap long enough so that you can throw it over your shoulders allowing your arms freedom, and a weight that lends itself to hours of walking without tire (as we live in a walking city, especially during nice weather) this bag really is essential for the upcoming season. Plus, who can resist the nude one? Fab fab fab colour.
(Vanessa Bruno, $531 CAD)
It's all one piece, like a dress, but it's casual, like jeans and a t-shirt, yet it's comfy, like pajamas.
Is there anything else I need to mention about the jumpsuit to emphasize it's greatness?
(3.1 Phillip Lim, $588 CAD)
What's the best way to finish off a beautifully wrapped gift? A bow!
What's the best way to finish off a beautifully outfitted girl? A bow belt!
Plus, they are gauaranteed to fit you perfectly because you tie them as tightly or loosely as you want. Oh, and they go with everything.
(3.1 Phillip Lim, $509 CAD)

I bet you thought I forgot this one, didn't you. You're reading this all the while thinking that I'm leaving out the most exciting and huge must-have of the season, as stated by everyone, when really, I was just saving the best for last. The harem pant. Or just any slouchy trouser in general. The boyfriend jean is even sort of a version of this as well. Whatever it is, make it baggy, slouchy and almost a little too comfy for fashion. They're all perfect.

This ruffle top (silk cotton blend) and sailor skirt (100% cotton) are just as fabulous individually as they are as an outfit!

This jumpsuit is soooo hot! Fabulous fabric too... 50% cupro, 30% cotton, 20% linen.

Thursday, April 2, 2009


Each of the above three tops is made of 100% linen... which is amazing! I would have to say that I think everyone should own at least one of Vanessa's over-sized linen T's, as they are the most practical (yet fabulous) buy a girl can make for her spring wardrobe. We just received in a number of different shapes: The navy long-sleeved more obviously batwinged top (pictured above), which is absolutely gorgeous and sooo comfy, yet elegant. Next, the olive green has these beautiful, subtle batwings. Not to mention the color is so fresh and amazing! And lastly there's the salmon coloured cuffed sleeve T-shirt that you will just want to live in once you try it

To think I went on and on about the linen tops when there are more amazing pieces that came in the shipment as well. The navy silk/cotton top pictured below. A summer cotton navy dress. A poppy red summer blouse with gold pin-stripes. And this beeeeautiful nude linen top with a silk back. The hot pink linen/cotton blend pieces with silk detailing. The super sexy runway dress with little gold chain straps. Seriously, no words. Just come?
