Was the son of a preacher man.

Together Marylouise Pels and Vanessa Giovacchini make up the creative due POSSO. They make music, art, dj and can now add design to the list. Posso The Spat is there first design project which consists of a small collection of spats. The definition of spats (according to are "a short gaiter worn over the instep and usually fastened under the foot with a strap, worn esp. in the late 19th and early 20th centuries". Anyways they are beautiful and I would kill for a pair but my student budget cannot currently afford this sort of extravagance. The spats below are on my list of things I want so bad I would do unforgivable things to get list. The names are pretty crafty to.

I need to post this FANTASTIC photo shoot. I found it somewhere on the internet and fell in love. It's from Vogue Italy in November of 2007. The shoot was shot by Richard Burbridge and was simply, and appropriately, titled Silhouette. I loved it so much, and was on the prowl for some sort of new page heading, and used one of the photos for it. Feast your eyes and enjoy.

I would like to attend...


Why can't there be parties like this around for me to attend? Clowns, costumes, bathtubs, Dumbledore like characters, live band, dancing galore... the whole shabang! That was a special for the UK show Skins called the Skins Secret Party Special. Jason burned me the first season and I just started watching it today and love it so far. This clip is from 2007, I believe, when the show first aired. The show revolves around a group of friends and each episode focuses on one of the characters. I can't wait to watch the rest of the show... Also the band is Foals, in which I thoroughly enjoy, and if I do say so myself the band is quite easy on the eyes particularly the lead singer...

New stompin' grounds.

Newly purchased faux fur vest from Zara.

Our kitchen. Stainless steel microwave and toaster. No biggie.

Outerwear closet.

Kirsty's beautiful antique headboard which was handcrafted in the 18th century in Paris. Maybe not...but it IS from Ikea.

My most loved purchase for the room...sheepskin rug.

FINALLY we have a home. We moved into Mallory Place a couple of weeks ago and it feels great. Can't say I have ANY urge/want/need/desire to do anymore Ikea trips... but were here now and aside from a few boxes (mostly mine, what can I say I've accumulated a lot of raw goods in my days) were getting settled. Now to plan the house warming...

The flow.

Found this photo on the SARTORIALIST this morning and I love it. The colors, the flow, the material...hmmmmmm. I found some material like the gray and black stuff and was going to make curtains out of it and possibly a dress of sorts and it was $30 bucks a meter. The prices of fabric soar HIGH in Toronto. You can bet your bottom dollar I'm going to be raiding, I mean RAIDING, Mitchells fabrics when I go home at Christmas.



ps I feel like all proper bloggers do a little xo of sorts when they sign off so...YAH.

Turn the beat around.

Yesterday while waiting to take the bus to Ikea I got Ry P. to snap some photos of me whilst I tried to keep warm by spinning in my full, evergreen, fall frock.
On another note Toronto is starting to cool off, although today was quite beautiful, and I'm craving a new (but actually old) fur coat and/or vest. Any of these beauties should do the trick just fine I'd say!
