My boyfriend and his best friend just got an apartment downtown Toronto, so on Saturday we all spent 4 hours strolling around Ikea to get all the necessities; lamps, couches, frames, 50 cent hotdogs, stuff like that.

I’ve been a big fan of Jonathan Saunders ever since I found myself in the London studio where all his patterns/textiles are printed last year. Way exciting. Sadly, I did not get to meet or even sneak a glance at the designer himself, but I did get to see his locker where he keeps all his printing materials. Baby steps right? He’s an incredible designer with an amazing eye for colour and pattern. I love how he’s mixed different colourways of the same pattern, as well as juxtaposed modern geometrics with floral and fauna in his fall 2011 collection. Genius!


anyhow, just a little weekend inspiration!

I had a little request from my uncle in Colorado (hi Uncle Ken!) to post about my Oscar favourites. Basically I’m a sucker for embellishments and lace, and I’ve always felt that a night like the Oscars deserves a gown, no mini- dresses allowed!

Who was your favourite look of the night?

pretty pastels

all images JCrew february catalogue + a few sequins

I’m loving these cool pastels with pops of yellow and olive (and sequins!) for spring. A look I will definitely be embracing, once the weather allows.

Have you SEEN this gorgeous girl yet? I love Cee of Coco and Vera‘s parisienne chic style, especially when complimented by a Denj + LaurenElan bracelet! If you haven’t seen her wonderful blog yet, you need to; especially because she’s about take off for Paris and become a true Parisienne for a few weeks. Jealous? I think so.
