Holt Renfrew has partnered with Canada Goose and Polar Bears International to created a limited edition toque. A portion of the proceeds goes to Polar Bears International. The Toronto Uniform crowd will probably want their matching Canada Goose toque in either black or red. It retails for $50 and are available at Holt Renfrew stores across the country. Previously, Holt Renfrew x Marc by Marc Jacobs x VisionSpring came together to create a limited edition tote with a portion of proceeds going to VisionSpring. Holt’s sent me a black toque and even thought I don’t own a Canada Goose jacket I think the toque is nice. It has a merino wool exterior and a fleece interior. It has a good shape on my head for a beanie type toque. I don’t really wear that style because you need hair to pull it off. The toque is very warm and I can’t wait to see how it does in colder weather. The Bloor Street store has a large in store display for the toques that is …
This Fall Winter 2010 – 2011 collection from Marni has me wondering if Consuelo Castiglioni was a Canadian in previous life. These accessories look warm and are perfect for our crappy winters. I really like the hoods. They look so fuzzy and warm. images: tooklookbook.com
I was playing around with the hat options at the Philip Sparks Spring 2010 lookbook photo shoot.
I was looking at this bag from the Chanel Paris-Moscow 2009 collection. It kept reminding me of something I own, then I figured it out. It was my Soviet Air Force Cap. Ha. Two years ahead of the game there Karl.
hat trick – hat, hoodie and scarf from Where Did You Get That? This is the ‘all-in-one’ defense against winter: The coverage of a hat with the wrap-around protection of a scarf. This blend of cashmere and extra fine merino wool makes this piece exceptionally soft. We are Canadian – we know how to keep warm and look great at the same time. You can get this from a new Toronto based online retailer called Where did you get that? Where Did You Get That began with a childhood friendship. As teenagers growing up in Toronto, Canada we shared our clothes, our secrets and an insatiable taste for fashion. But our styles were always very much our own. It’s amazing how two people can wear virtually the exact same thing and yet pull off two completely different looks â€“ it is the very essence of personal flair and a perfect reflection of our partnership. Our differing styles and personalities, experiences and expertise, are echoed in our diverse and evolving collection. Yet our shared standard of …

Hats by Claudia Schulz I love the shapes of these hats made by Vancouver based Claudia Schulz. I’m not too sure if these would work with my short hair, but I’m willing to chance it. You can purchase Claudia’s hats online through her website.
Regular readers will know of my military love. I’ve added this awesome Soviet Air Force cap to my collection. You will see me with this on the streets with this hat, I love it. On side is full of these great soviet era pins and the other has 3 patches. I got this from Save More Sport Store at Queen and Jarvis, which is one of the best army surplus places for hats. I got my amazing East German ushanka from them and I’ve been thanking them ever winter afterwards. Save More Sport Store Ltd 114 Queen Street East Toronto, Ontario info at savemoresportstore dot ca
Clear Shoe boxes from the Shoe StÃ¶r Wayback in 2005 I won a contest by one of the owners of the Shoe StÃ¶r. It’s taken me two years to receive the product due to lack of contact on my part and a nasty data loss problem on the Shoe StÃ¶r’s end. It’s all be cleared up and now I’m the proud owner of some clear shoe boxes… and I love them! I’ve organized my shoe collection and now everything is at my fingertips. I won’t forget about any of my shoes because they are in the back of my closet in a non-clear shoe box again. They come in various sizes and I use the boot size for my handbags also.
So Prada has made the turban a hot item for spring 2007. I actually got to touch one in person at Holt Renfrew the other day. These things are tiny. I have a pretty small head and I couldn’t fit into a medium. Is Stam’s head that tiny? I think the turban cost $250 bucks. I also saw the knockoff version from M by Madonna for H&M this weekend, it’s a hell of a lot cheaper ($14.99). Man is that collection boring, I’m sure it will sell though. As you can guess, the H&M version wasn’t quite as nice as Prada.
