i got: Minimal Baroque Sunglasses by Prada

The Prada Minimal Baroque sunglasses have been my obsession since the spring summer 2011 collections hit the Milan runways last September. I originally wanted the crazy blue and white ones. They’d make a great addition to my crazy sunglasses collection. It didn’t look like the blue ones would be coming up to Canada in any major quantities so I decided on the tortoise shell Minimal Baroque sunglasses instead. My favourite Prada SA John helped The Oracle and I decide between the two offerings, black and tortoise. I liked the lens shade better in the tortoise and they were a bit…

i got: Luxirare Suede Minivest

As soon as I returned from my Whistler vacation I ordered the Luxirare Suede Minivest. I like vests in theory but I find them very, very hard to style. After months of hiding, I debuted the vest at the Greta Constantine x Danier Skin event. Looks like I will have to do some more research on how I can incorporate this great little vest into my wardrobe. I think maxi dresses might work for the summer. Jackets and sweaters would be good combination in the winter. How do you style your vest? Outfit breakdown: Luxirare Minivest, Sheer grey dress by…

i got: Calvin Klein Alex Heel

You might remember my little shoe emergency that happened before the When Tommy Met Anna event.  If not, the short story is that I needed to buy new shoes.  Those new shoes are the Calvin Klein Alex Heel from The Bay..  I wanted some basic and black but it had to give me height.  These  platforms fit the bill and they are different from any shoe I have in my closet.  The heel is 5″ with a 1″ double platform.  I predict these will see a lot of wear this summer.

I love Pierre Hermé Macaron

The Oracle always brings me back Pierre Hermé macarons when he returns from Paris. The macaron are the best thing I’ve ever tasted. It’s a small box of 7 macaron and you can’t have them sitting around for days. You have to eat them within a day or too for maximum freshness. There are all kinds of seasonal flavours so it’s always a different experience. I haven’t tried Foie Gras macaron but I would. images: pierreherme.com

i got: Solvang Clog by Jeffrey Campbell

When clogs came back into fashion I dismissed them. I’ll never wear these. It’s something I say to myself often and the opposite is usually the result. My thirst for platforms has brought me to Jeffrey Campbell and the Solvang Clog, which I bought at Chasse Gardee on Boxing Day. It’s a very comfortable shoe and gives me that extra height.

i got: My Lost Glasses Tights by Hansel from Basel

I was walking around on Queen Street West and decided to stop into Robber. I ended up getting some tights from Hansel from Basel. Hansel from Basel is an independent legwear company based in Los Angeles, California. Inspired by the small and lovely details of everyday life, our goal is to create subtle yet beautiful socks, tights, leggings, and accessories. I like the tights a lot but they do run on the very small side. I bought the m/l size and I’m pushing the limits of the garment. Take it as a word of warning. Robber 863 Queen St. West…

i got: Denis Gagnon x Bedo Dress

So, Denis Gagnon partnered with Bedo last August to created a little capsule collection. I managed to grab myself two dresses from the collection when the markdown season started. I didn’t get any of the iconic pieces that I’ve seen people sporting but I do like my drapy tunic/dresses. I treat this dress more like a tunic right now and pair it with leggings and boots. This was taken at Parts and Labour for the TOMMY dinner party that was hosted by Jeanne Beker. I’m standing with Tiyana Grulovic who is a Fashion Editor at the Globe and Mail. George…

i got: Darcel Disappoints – Fashion Week postcard set

I posted about the cute Darcel adventures at the Fashion Weeks. Craig Redman’s caricatures of fashion icons are so adorable that I had to own them. So I bought the Darcel Disappoints — Fashion Week postcard set. It’s so adorable. To celebrate the fashion week insanity I’m releasing a few sets of the postcards I did with colette and Nowness for Fashion’s Night Out here in New York. They are a nice size (5 x 7) and there are 10 different cards, all for 15 bucks – nuts! In order: Anna Wintour Suzy Menkes Karl Lagerfeld Tom Ford John Galliano…

i got: Camilla Skovgaard Drop Cut Out Sandal

I got a the beautiful Hermès L’air de Paris Gavroche for my birthday. I didn’t talk about the other really awesome birthday present. Oh yes, it’s these babies. Camilla Skovgaard makes the most comfortable heel I own.  They have been getting a lot of wear since June.  I’m loving the last so much that I’ve been toying with the idea of another pair of Camilla Skovgaard shoes in the future, perhaps many pairs in years to come.   Not only are they comfortable, they are a smoking hot shoe.

i got: Criss Cross Sandal by Marais USA

These Criss Cross Sandal by Marais USA are my new favourite summertime flat. They are super comfortable and not expensive. I love the discussion and stares these shoes bring. They are so bright and neon. I love it. I picked these up at Chasse Gardee. They carry Marais USA in Toronto and they range in the $85 – $120.
