Shop the Look: Channelling the Seventies

My parents were married in 1974. My mom, wearing a simple dress, with a hood, and my dad a suit with bell bottom pants and leather clogs! I am not joking. In 1977, I was born. We have albums full of sepia coloured photos of our home featuring macramé wall hangings and suspended planters my mom made. Our brown floral Laura Ashley wallpaper in the powder room still haunts me to this day. Despite that, I seem to have a very large affection for the seventies and the carefree style it displayed. So when I see glimpses of this trend coming back in style, I cannot help but channel my own seventies-ness. Yeah baby! Here are a few of my staples:

In terms of flared jeans, I like these by 7 for All Mankind and these from J Brand.

Channel your haute hippy with this Marc by Marc Jacobs number. I am crushing over this malachite ring too!

For my techno, a floral iPhone 6 case.

How cure are these birthday girl cards?

BohoGypsy is the queen of all things hippy and this vintage pompom bracelet is no exception.

Although a splurge, I am looking for an excuse (any excuse will do!) to buy these boots for myself.

This burlap carryall is both practical and cute. Plus, when you’re tired of wearing it as a bag, you stitch up the opening and make it into a cool pillow!

Speaking of pillow, I love the colours on this kilim pillow from Buk & Nola here in Montréal.

I am really into all things green these days and these cute planters are great for my growing cacti collection!

Hazel & Hunter’s weaving wall hanging bring me back to my (really) early years!

Winter Wonderland

winter wonderland

 

If you can’t beat it, you might as well join it. This winter has been particularly harsh, at least for us here in Canada. That being said, there is something ethereal and so gorgeously beautiful in a pristine winter landscape. This converted schoolhouse, nestled in Ontario’s bucolic countryside,  had the feeling of a warm and fuzzy blanket when I saw it. Despite the all white colour palette, it felt enveloping,  cool and yet very warm.

My heart first skipped a beat at the spiral iron staircase with the definite marking of St-Lawrence Foundry, until it skipped yet another one after noticing the mantelpiece, the Louis style grey felted wool chair, & the large and massive harvest table in the dining area.

This home is a perfect example of old and new world colliding in the most elegant and yet livable way.

Have a great week lovelies, stay warm!

So lovelies, here we are, in the heart of another week of pure polar vortex-ness. I am beyond exasperated with the whole situation and I am seriously considering moving to a warmer climate! In my mid-winter escape mood, it is no surprise then that I found myself basking in the beauties of New York’s Fashion Week Fall-Winter 2015 shows, when the presses stopped… at least in my book. I mean, I literally stopped writing what will become my book comes fall to peruse the looks from the J.Crew Fall 2015 show, which was held this morning.

In terms of inspiration, it’s all about saturated colours and plush textures, two themes that fill my cooler weather wardrobe, year after year. Throw in a few nautical stripes for good measure and there you have my uniform. #CreatureOfHabit

“The women’s Fall/Winter ’15 collection was inspired by Peter Schlesinger’s book “Checkered Past”. He captured his friends, including David Hockney, Tina Chow, Paloma Picasso, Eric Boman and Cecil Beaton in the 1960’s and 70’s. The energy of London and these iconic friends inspired the texture, color and silhouettes of the collection – intense yellow, blue violet, pale pinks and lush heather greys paired with textures like faux fur, gorgeous knitwear, burnished shearling, denim and fringe.” -Tom Mora, Head of J.Crew Women’s Design

Even the boys got some great looks!

I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but I am excited for next fall to roll around.
