Fine Fabrics

Fine jewellery can add great detail to a somewhat plain outfit. We all have our favourite pieces, mine are small enough to wear daily, but have a little personality, for those who take a second look.

I love silk jackets, wraps, coverups, well silk in general. I think there is nothing more luxurious this fine fabric, so whenever you can get a hold of a silk treasure, with a great pattern as a bonus, hold on to it. These will likely (hopefully) be timeless & classic pieces that can be worn decade-after-decade differently, and passed along to friends and possibly even future generations.

I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekends, and had a great first day back to work, or for those lucky enough to be continuing their education, back to school.  I had so much fun this weekend  and was able to explore the Toronto Island, The Canadian Exhibition, and  Main Street Unionville. Though, waking up for work this morning was a very difficult.  It may have been the rain or the weekend’s activities, but I was definitely not the only person who was tired today.

So when everything is telling you to be sleepy, why not dress for it.  Fashion, this season has given us the “go ahead” to wear pajamas to work, out for dinner, basically anywhere. This lounge wear is so effortless, and is really about layering and comfort.  Made from cottons and silks, pajama pants (with matching tops) can be found everywhere, from Joe Fresh to Topshop. Next time your bed is calling your name at 6 am, put on some silky pants, and feel better knowing that you will likely be the most comfortable person in your office.

So it’s happening, the first of my friends got engaged and a huge mazel tov goes out to the lovely couple! So as summer festivities tend to a lot of excited people, in often tight spaces, it’s important to start building a stay-cool summer wardrobe. Opt out of a glam cocktail dress for a change, and try something a loose silk dress. It will keep you cool, and a classic piece can be worn year after year, as this is just the beginning of a lot of engagement (and outfits!).

Oh and I do have two vintage silk shirts that are basically the same .
