on a monday...

Posted by jessica

Mondays are my favourite days of the week. They mark the start of a fresh week.

So, in honour of this new week, we've decided to start a Polyvore page to share our collection of fun online finds with you. We hope you like it!

Diane Birch is a musician with an amazing sense of style. Among others, she credits Coco Chanel and Jane Birkin as her style icons and is inspired by the romantic and classical Baroque era both in music and style.

Below, in one of my favourite ensemble of hers, she mixes vintage with designer pieces while attending NYFW.

Nadinoo is a beautiful clothing line based in Britain. With each garment hand crafted, you can be assured that each piece is unique and individualized. It's hard to find such personalized service like this these days.

It's hard to believe that it's been about a month and a half since I last posted. October was extremely nutty for me, and I'm glad that I have a little bit of a breather this month before the pace picks up again. Expect plenty of posts from me as I catch up on sharing the various sewing projects I completed over the summer.

Ridiculously talented illustrator Jon Klassen recently won the Governor General's Literary Award for a book he illustrated, Cats' Night Out. I love his subdued colour palette and the mood that his work evokes.

Audrey Kawasaki's work is sensual and serene. I love that she uses wood as her canvas. I think the grain in the wood add to the beautiful texture in her work.
