We are thrilled to be stocking the very fabulous Mr. Tom Binns!! This is a very small delivery - just a teaser for our much more extensive Spring delivery - but nice to have a bit of sparkle right before the Holidays!

I cannot even tell you how excited we have been for this amazing Varsity jacket to come in! Every bit as hot as we remembered.
Who doesn't love a little stripe action from a Resort collection? Clearly we are all over it. This dress is a cool variation on the classic.
We kinda figure that most of the time the photo just can't do a piece justice. This time we know it for sure. It's not just a pea coat!! This fabric is so soft and light it's almost more of a knit... but it's not a knit. It's a jacket. But it's not really a jacket. This 'thing' needs a category all to itself. A light, soft, jacket with movement that feels like air. With leather elbow patches. A car coat? with elbow patches? Anyone speak Italian? THEY WOULD HAVE A WORD FOR THIS!!
Good shorts are so hard to find I think. We are always looking for good shorts when doing a buy that could even feasibly have shorts in it. These 100% linen ones, paired with the striped cotton shirt from the same delivery, are going to look good on pretty much everyone, we're sure of it.
BOY by Band of Outsiders are rather well known for their blazer, this much we know. So this classic one button fit - WITH LEATHER LAPELS!! - we thought was pretty exciting. We styled it with this mini polka dot sleeveless swingy cotton top from the same delivery and Forte.Forte pants.

The dress to end all dresses!!
What more could you ask for? It's original, elegant, flattering, and dark (but not black). It should be easy enough to think up an occasion - I could see this for a wedding, a fundraiser, a big party at someone's house - OMG I'm not even sure I care where I would wear it - it's so stunning!

We don't keep it a secret how much we love Helmut Lang's blazers. No secret at all. So I won't waste too much of your time telling you this fact of nature over and over again. His latest creation? Beige linen with black leather trim at the waist and inside the lapel (almost like a vest - it's hard to explain). * love *
An asymmetrical wool/alpaca blend mesh sweater - styled with the newest leather leggings - the D-ring lace-up side detail! SO HOT.
Apparently the answer to the question: "How many leather leggings does a girl need??"is:
"More than one!"
We all know how rare it is to find a proper waterproof jacket in fashion... but the boys at Rag & Bone obviously know how to keep it real. This hits all kinds of marks for us - removable quilted lining, removable fur trimming - and WATERPROOF??!! We still can't believe it!
The heathered wool on this charcoal wool cardigan gives it a great texture - cute for everyday - maybe styled with something amazing like these leather leggings: our favourite!!

Nobody's allowed to say that this is too much for daytime in Vancouver or we will all quit, shut down the store and move to New York or Paris where it is perfectly acceptable to look fabulous at any time of the day.
