Spring 2011?!!? Oh thank god, maybe the weather is soon to follow.

Isabel Marant Etoile's fabulously early first delivery of Spring 2011!!! I feel like this is some kind of amazing present for New Year!!!!

Of course, this is not everything we received, but a naughty taster of a few things we got photographs of in a few spare minutes...

Adorable little vest and skirt (love the navy/black combo), paired with these Joseph boots, which, bewilderingly, we have on sale in a size 36 and a 37.

We think fighting may happen over this jacket. Because it's ADORABLE. It is herringbone, as you can hopefully see from the photo, but the fabric is quite rare for this look and weight: 100% linen. A must-see!

Crinkle-y textured shirts are an essential element of any woman's casual-yet-interesting outfit. Unfortunately, we did not buy one million of these, because it is definitely gorgeous enough to warrant it.

Rag & Bone Pre-Spring Delivery!!

I remember the designers of Rag & Bone, when talking about this delivery, said that they wanted items that were very wear-now, and I have to say, they succeeded with flying colours!

We love this washed denim cargo jacket, because it's that easy-to-wear casual for Vancouver, but it's interesting and painfully cool.

We're not sure which colour of this amazingly cozy scarf-shawl hybrid is more amazing... thoughts?

My rant on the Kennington jacket could go on for years! First of all, the leather collar? AMAZING. Second, the gorgeous olive green wool was supplied by a Swiss company called Schoeller, and GET THIS: the fabric is waterproof!!! IT"S WATERPROOF WOOL!!!! Who does that?!?!! AMAZING!!!!! I love you Rag&Bone, you guys are geniuses.

This gorgeous oversize wool sweater has all the appeal of "I stole it from my boyfriend", but it's super soft wool, so you know it was totally made for a woman.

Côté Bastide Candles

The name Côté Bastide loosely translates to "around the house" (but a countryside home in the south). All the fragrances are inspired from a childhood in Provence, the owner's family garden, and her extensive personal travels. The candles are all handmade and beautifully hand packaged in France; the ingredients come from Grasse (the perfume capital of the world), in the south of France. A very elegant, refined and authentic little luxury with an absolutely irresistible charm.

Tilleul, or Lime Tree/ Linden Tree Blossom. A symbol of happiness and faithfulness. A gorgeous subtle scent, with a hint of masculinity. If they weren't all completely mouth watering, I would say it's my favourite.

Lait, or Milk. Reminiscent of sweet cream, fresh, soft and comforting. A very subtle, innocent kind of scent.

Figuier, or Fig Tree. The fragrance is extracted from the crushed leaves, and is both a bit woodsy and a bit floral. And amazing.

Thé Vanille, or Vanilla Tea. A very warm, cozy scent. It's so homey, it could be the perfect scent for the holidays.

Fleurs d'Oranger, or Orange Blossom. This is the one we have burning at the time of writing. I'm completely intoxicated. It is a an amazing fresh scent, taking me to straight to sweet, sweet, springtime.

Argan, the same in word in english, is a tree endemic to Morocco. Another very subtle scent, with an almost hint of a floral, but barely.
