When the leaves start to fall and the air is crisp sometimes we need just a little something extra to feel warm. We absolutely love our Agnelle gloves, but for the girl who is little more edgy, Rag & Bone has sent us something to lust over. Driving gloves in red, black and tartan. The red makes a statement - awesome with a leather jacket. The black gloves bring the perfect amount of bad to any outfit and the Tartan we love best with a trench. How will you wear them?

It is wet, rainy, chilly day outside and we think this is the best way to deal: super cozy Isabel Marant merino wool sweater dress, a Faliero Sarti boiled wool/silk scarf, the Sartore ankle brown boots (with rubber soles!) and this amazing 70's wool felt hat from Rag & Bone to keep the water out of your eyes. I actually don't think there could be a better silver lining to this weather!!
I have to say - my closet could not function without a blazer from Helmut. The clean lines, the versatility, the modernity... I think this chiffon trimmed collarless version is right up there with the best of them.

Every delivery we get is exciting, but there is something about an Isabel Marant delivery... maybe it's because she has such devoted fans, maybe it's because we happen to wear a lot of it ourselves... whatever it is... we're happy it's here!!
Anja Rubik donned this sexy little criss-cross number for the runway, styled with over-the-knee boots. We love the idea of this much body-con with so little exposed skin. We also love the idea of how it could go day or night, and since it IS Fashion Week somewhere in the world, we think it would travel pretty well too.
I think that twist-front details like this are incredible! A silk/cotton blend, with a removable self-belt, and *gasp* a SLEEVE!! Besides the fact that I think this print is stunning, this red-wine colour is a dream to play with: back to black? Sure! But the combinations go on and on and on.
Part of her Etoile collection, this particular fabric group has been hugely popular. A beautiful silk print in a lovely short-sleeve rounded-hemline silhouette. And the studded detail around the neck? Amazing.
I think we can all agree that this dress looks amazing... the gathering, the gorgeous sleeves, the rounded hemline... it's stunning. But seriously, between us, this dress is SO easy to wear - so comfortable. I rationally understand that owning two of them might be greedy... but I think in this case it might be more rational than owning only one.
I've always thought wrap skirts were flattering, but this version breaks down barriers all over the place of where you can take it. Out? Work? Weekend? Casual? Polished? Lady? Edgy? Check, check, check, check, check, check, check! Love!

This amazing top was actually on Vanessa Bruno's runway, but worn over a turtleneck, tucked into pants, and under a jacket... it looked great, but we think it's a total standout all on it's own. 100% cotton - absolutely stunning fabric with a slight heathered effect when you get close. What a silhouette!!
Ok, this jacket was from the delivery before, but, well, we think it's hot.
This shirt? Silk front? Wool jersey back? Amazing crochet detail? This is everything we love about Vanessa Bruno right here summed up in one item - completely feminine, interesting design and beautiful execution.
Vanessa - we <3 u 4 life.
Wool jersey long sleeve day dress? Sure, it's great. But in nude? Thank you!! You can make this very fall/winter fabric take you all the way through to a chilly spring without sacrificing your seasonality. Right now you can make a really beautiful gentle colour palette by pairing back to beige and grey outwear for that whole light-colours-in-winter thing, and then in spring just with a scarf and a vest and it doesn't even matter what the Vancouver weather dishes out!!
Love her shoulder details. This woman is a pattern drafting genius.
