Material pleasure: Need Supply and Toms

June 11, 2010 § Leave a comment

Virginia’s Need Supply clothing looks amazing! Their dresses are so fun, and really quite affordable. I may need to do some online ordering in their sale department…


In other news, I really want a pair of Toms. I tried some on last week and they’re surprisingly comfortable and so light-weight! You also can’t go wrong when you buy a pair of shoes knowing that some poor child in an impoverished country will also receive a pair of shoes thanks to your purchase.

I’d probably go with their classics, but what do you think of their new women’s wedges?

Material Pleasure: Spring is (almost) here!

March 18, 2010 § 4 Comments

Spring is only a few days away from officially being here and although it’s kind of frustrating me that another season is starting I’m still in Canada and not in New York, it’s also getting me excited for new clothes and lighter coats! I have been wearing the same parka for months now and the thought of having a few spring coats to choose from is incredibly appealing.

I hit up H&M’s coat sale on Saturday and picked up a very cute lil number. They have so many adorable spring items, it was very hard to contain myself and not buy more! Although if you’re going to spring for a new wardrobe, H&M is a great place to do it.

I also treated myself a pair of Fred Perry flats like the ones shown above, but in solid red. Peep toes!

Anthropologie always has the best dresses, like the airplane detailed above, sometimes even on sale! I’m looking forward to spending my strong Canadian dollars on sale items there once I get back to NY.

Smythe has some amazing blazers! No, I haven’t indulged yet, but I might need to add something like the grey one pictured above to my wardrobe of light jackets!

Target is hosting Jean Paul Gauthier’s line of spring collaborations – yet another reason to get back to America! The trench pictured above adds a sexy private detective flare to the green dress.

Today through Sunday at Dalaga in Brooklyn, you can receive 10% off when you purchase a spring jacket and a dress. If I were home in Greenpoint right now, I can guarantee you not only would I be taking advantage of that deal, but I’d probably be walking away with a couple other items as well.

I love this tiny wooden play set of New York! It’s also pretty decently priced at only $14 online, but I’m going to wait until I get back to NYC and head over to Muji to pick one up for my apartment. They also have models of Tokyo, London, and Paris.

I have yet to venture into Toronto’s Coriander Girl, but the shop that boasts both flowers and antiques sounds lovely. I have really gotten into flowers the past couple years and am currently keeping a lookout for the perfect wedding bouquet to take to NYC City Hall with me. I may need to meander in to this shop tomorrow and record ideas in my brain.

Amy Sol’s “Garden Nest” is beautiful. The painting will be on display at the David B. Smith Gallery which opens on Friday, February 19th and runs through March 20th.

Amazing photos from the National Wildlife Federation’s 2009 photo contest.

Gorgeous New York designer Alexandra Grecco.

Daydreaming about hiring this Los Angeles photographer to photograph my eventual wedding.

Loving these Fjall Raven backpacks.

I am going to sign up for the next online class at 503 Photography.

Ryan Jacob Smith’s prints include those with outlines of America, with the messages “Sorry” and “We’re Totally Fucked”. Awesome.
