i want: Body Jewellery by Dolorous

Toronto has a number of great jewellery designers and Dolorous is one of them. Danielle Singer, designer, uses brass chains and various vintage components to create her beautiful, minimalist designs. I’m really into her body jewellery right now.

Menat Broad Collar Body Chain
Menat Broad Collar Body Chain

Menat Broad Collar Body Chain is my favourite piece by Dolorous right now. It would make a great statement piece on a long gown for formal occasions. It also would be great more causally too. It’s $278.64 at here Etsy shop.

The Menat Broad Collar Body Chain, inspired by medieval accessories, is a modern style of body jewelry meant to be worn across the shoulders. This beautiful and flattering statement piece is made with two draping strands down the front and three across the back, connected at the shoulders with a section of ornate vintage copper chain from which several strands of brass chain are draped, creating a cap sleeve style look that allows the piece to balance comfortably across your shoulders.(source: Dolorous Etsy Page)

Crystal Lattice Body Necklace
Crystal Lattice Body Necklace

Crystal Lattice Body Necklace is another great piece that would make a great statement on a simple gown. It’s a cheaper option than the Menat Broad Collar Body Chain at $187.55.

The Crystal Lattice Body Chain is a versatile necklace featuring a large vintage chandelier crystal that is absolutely breathtaking in person.The vintage crystal at the center of the necklace is surrounded by layers of draped brass chain, interlaced with one another.
Its constructed to allow it to be worn either as a draped and layered necklace, or as a beautiful body chain with chain interlaced down and around the torso and creating beautiful back detailing.(source: Dolorous Etsy Page)

When I was younger I had so many mini skirts in my closet. Now I have two and I miss wearing them. It’s pretty pathetic. So I keep my eyes peeled and I love coming across unusual ones like this neon green perforated leather mini skirt by Proenza Schouler. Of course this piece is expensive, $1650 at Barneys.

i want: Aldo Rise x Preen Buito High Heel Sandal

Aldo Rise x Preen Buito High Heel Sandal
Aldo Rise x Preen Buito High Heel Sandal

I’m a big fan of the Aldo Rise collections and I’m a huge fan of Preen. So when these two get together, I get a little giddy. For Spring Summer 2013 Preen and Aldo released three styles of shoes with two different colourways per style. I’ve already picked up the Musilova style which has a pointy toe, asymmetrical vamp and ankle strap. It’s in a bone colour and the leather has some texture to it. I’m also a big fan of the Preen x Aldo Rise Buito Sandal. It wasn’t available when I purchased the Musilova thankfully because I would have walked out the door with both.

All the styles from the Aldo Rise x Preen collection are $155 and can be found online at aldoshoes.com or in select Aldo Stores like Eaton Centre.

i want: Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II

Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II
Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II

I was in Bay Bloor radio looking for some spare earbud covers but somehow ended up getting a demo of the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II. My earbuds were sold out but I started talking to the Sale Associate about the Beats Pill, a portable speaker. The wasn’t sold on Beats but mentioned that Bose has the best portable speaker in the business right now. I was intrigued so it was demo time.

The speaker connect to devices wirelessly via Bluetooth which makes it available for use by any Bluetooth enabled device. A major plus for those that love their iPhone upgrades and the inevitable change in hardware that makes all peripherals obsolete. I connected my iPhone to the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II and started pumping out some Lucy Pearl. Bay Bloor Radio was filled with the sweet sounds of “Don’t Mess With My Man”. There was power and clarity in this portable speaker. I was really impressed because I’ve never heard a small portable speaker with such huge sound. It’s only 3 pounds and has an integrated cover (which comes in Nylon or Leather). The Rechargeable lithium-ion battery lasts for up to 8 hours of play. I was sold as soon as I heard “Don’t Mess With My Man”. This would be perfect for my balcony, summer days in the park, trips to the island and impromptu photoshoots.

You can pick up the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II at Bay Bloor Radio or baybloorradio.com starting at $329.

I finally visited a Brooks Brothers store in Toronto. I don’t know why it took me so long to visit the Brooks Brothers Flatiron Shop.

I can’t remember the Canadian price but they are listed as $248USD on the website which also ships to Canada.

i want: Embroidered Asymmetric Moto Jackets by Sacai

Sacai, Sacai. Is there many brands cooler than you? I don’t think so. Chitose Abe has created my dream moto jacket. The front of the jacket is true to motorcycle style but the back is loose and drapey. It’s the kind of coat that makes an entrance with this build in cape, superhero styles. It’s cut from the same cloth as my Moncler S Shihoko trench coat which was also designed by Chitose Abe. I hope Moncler S is coming back, I haven’t seen anything on the Moncler website for the Spring Summer 2013 collections.
