{Yves St. Laurent}

I have been thinking of spring, and elastic waisted dressed that are forgiving, high heels that elongate my bratwurst style middle and a purse that could theoretically be filled with sunshine and/or life’s natural antidepressant – Skittles.

Are you dreaming of spring yet?

Band of Outsiders – Count Me In






{via Fashionologie}

I’m loving these shots from the Band of Outsiders fall lookbook, shot by Scott Sternberg himself. Marisa Tomei gets me everytime, if only because I feel very Brooklyn saying her last name.

Wanted Wednesday – JanSport Heritage Collection


{JanSport Heritage Editions via The Moment}

When Jared was little he had a much coveted plastic Batman backpack, coveted to the point that he STILL tells this story as one of the most embarrassing / awful moments of his young life.

Jared’s kindergarten was sectioned off so that the backpacks and shoes were in a different area than everything else. One day his really good  friend had to use the washroom, but kept getting passed over by the teacher. Finally the poor kid went around the corner and peed into poor Jared’s backpack, which naturally caused a small childlike riot of taunting.

Jared begged his mom to just wash it out, but alas, the backpack could not be saved. I like to think that JanSport’s Heritage Collection is a killer throwback to those younger days, the styling and vintage labels are just right. The site has some pretty neat (one might even say “gnarly”) 60’s and 70’s photos of the founders. I tip my hat to you JanSport, though there may be no Batman logos, there is also no urine. Yet.

Monday Must Have – Distilled Style

BookCoverG10_14Web1{Available in the US August 12th, by September everywhere else}

The day got away from  me a little bit yesterday… Not sure what happened. Well, not true. When you reward every small movement and triumph over an achey body with ice cream and raspberries and blueberries, there really isn’t much motivation to kick start your day – or at least kick start it in a direction away from the freezer. 

As a result I spent most of it reading and listening to music and being a vegetable. It was nice, and a perfect way to preempt the back to work blues. *smile* I can’t wait to snag Schuman’s new book up there – hopefully while we’re traveling through the states I can nab a copy before it hits Canada, it would make for some inspiring car reading. Looking. Are there words? Does it matter..? xo

Wanted Wednesday- Shabd Simon-Alexander

tights{Shabd Simon-Alexander via Urban Outfitters}

Simon-Alexander models his art and textiles after galaxies and dying stars.. Exactly what I need to distract people from the beer belly I appear to be developing after realizing that working my way (country by country) through Sherbrooke liquor’s beer cooler may NOT have been the best idea.

Who knew?

Don’t you think this is just the most lovely idea? I think having a slide on lid like this would be perfect! I’m so envious of the beautiful Brooks saddle up there.. Stunning. *sigh* xo lovelies, I’ve got the day off to spend organizing for the move and having lunch with lovely friends. What bliss!
