For those who need a break from the sky high platform stilettos du jour, look no further than these delicious little Repetto flats, available at Reborn. In their latest incarnation, Repetto has teamed up with several designers including Ligia Dias, to bring you a fresh twist on their ever popular ballet flat. The Ligia Dias flats (top left, bottom right) are indeed my favourite, as they incorporate both strong and delicate elements, making them perfect for wearing with a feminine frock, or a more tailored casual look. Dias' prior collaborations include stints with Lanvin, Comme des Garcons, and Phillip Lim.

Every once in a while you come across that special garment that makes your heart flutter with sheer delight. Let's be honest, for those sartorially obsessed such as I, it does seem to happen far too often for stability of my bank account. None the less, this frock is a show-stopper. Designed by Toronto based firm Label, this easy yet exuberant tent dress is a great way to dress up the ubiquitous fall uniform basics of leggings and a slouchy leather coat.

I'm sure you have all heard the immortal words of Mr. Saint Laurent "Fashions fade, style is eternal". In my opinion Miss Piksi is the true embodiment of this statement. I have mentioned her here before, and I continue to be amazed by her spectacular styling capabilities.

This editorial is the complete imbodiment of the ideal Parisian style which I so adore, and is therefore aptly titled "Le Paris du Chic". Soft feminine blouses with structural trousers and skirts. Tailored jackets, and crisp shirts mixed with slouchy denim. Top it off with the perfect clutch, classic jewels, a pair of loubous, or the latest chloe flats...what more could a girl dream of? French dressing at it's best indeed.

"When I get dressed, I think of it as dress-up time, like the clothes are costume pieces. That's why I like vintage - it has a story behind it. I'm not afraid of walking down the street in something that people think is crazy. What I can't stand is looking like everyone else." - Mary-kate in FASHION magazine (March 2008)

Have a wonderful weekend lovelies. If you happen to find yourself with some free time on your hands, why don't you curl up with a cup of tea (earl grey is my favorite) and check out some of these useful and inspiring links.


Thanks to tenseventen I have discovered an absolutely brilliant singer from across the pond. Ladies and gentlemen Roisin Murphy ...i'm hooked! Her latest album Overpowered showcases her smooth and soulful vocals against a background of funky electronica beats. This girl is just fabulous and she has a wonderfully quirky personal style to boot. Check out one of my favorites from the new album below.

I'm sure many of you, like me, have been captivated by the beauty and elegance of Sophia Coppola's Miss Dior Cherie campaign. I might go as far as to say it is my favorite campaign of all time. Something about the way the young Parisian spirit has been captured here is just simply delightful.

If you are interested in graphic design, you have probably stumbled across many an internet posting raving about the unsurpassed creativity of the classic Penguin book covers. I could spend hours pouring over photos of these covers, they never cease to inspire me.
 Because of my affinity for quirky tea cups, and coffee mugs, and my love of these wonderful Penguin covers, I must get myself one of these beauties....

I have fallen in love with this shoot of Penn Badgely by the one and only Terry Richardson. Even though there have been so many Americana editorials of late, this one has really caught my eye...maybe it has something to do with Penn in that leather jacket, or Terry's sense of humor. I'm sorry again for being mia letely...lots of holiday plans have been keeping me busy. As I get back into the new term at school I have to work on my resolution of more effective time management, sigh, isn't that always the goal? I will get back to comments asap...thank you so much to all of you who have been following me this year! I hope you all have had lovely holidays, and are enjoying the last of them. Wishing you all the best for 2009!
