Dark navy from day to night, what better alternative is there to black? And yes, that’s a different Chanel jacket (on the right) than what we posted up for you last week. In fact, we’ve gotten in a couple of new Chanel items since then including a gorgeous grey bouclé wool motorcycle style jacket with jewelled buttons! That’s why it’s always good to pop in for a visit. We’re open 7 days a week.

We’re back in black this week and trimmed with a little fur. I often get into conversations with customers about the politics of wearing fur these days. There are many people, myself included, that will only wear vintage fur as it’s recycling and the funds don’t go back into the farming/trapping of animals. Hey if someone killed me for my hide, they better rock the hell out of it for decades to come! On the flip side, we do live in a cold climate and the fur industry does contribute to household incomes and our Canadian economy. So at the end of the day, you do you!

Chocolate hues and vining grapes set the tone for this label heavy autumn display. Go from day to cocktail hour in that one-pocketed Prada on the right with a toss of the cardigan/blazer. It’s a super versatile workhorse of a dress! That centre Pucci- not so much. It’s more of a show pony, meant to dazzle your on-lookers with it’s fab print and poet sleeves. Separates are not to be overlooked over on the left. Dior ruffles and ribbons abound on that romantic crochet cardigan. It’s paired with a warm wool Celine pleated skirt which would look sweet with some tall leather boots. And there is loads more in store kittens!
