good night, day pre-fall 2014

10306456_734520803250928_6521156030650224830_nThe weather has been quite warm, and I think it will be staying that way for a good while now, so it seems a bit silly to even be considering warm garments like wool knits. But just a few weeks back Tara-Lynn Morrison, the talented gal behind the Canadian knit-wear label, good night, day, released her Pre-Fall collection, and it is just too good not to share. Strange it seems, just this past weekend I was saying to Ryan how I wish it was socially acceptable to wear a blanket outside during winter without fear of being deemed a wee bit nutty, and behold, the Bloomfield Blanket Lace Wrap – just the sort of thing I have been dreaming of for years now! GND always has such gorgeous, quality knits that I absolutely love collection after collection, so it actually seems ridiculous I do not own my own piece at this point. This is an issue I shall rectify in due time.

Check out the whole collection, lookbook, and past collections here.

Lauren Winter February Collection


You may already be quite familiar with Lauren Winter if you have been following this blog since it’s inception, or well, if you follow any fashion bloggers who supports independent designers. – she’s been around for awhile. Under the former name Blooming Leopold, she has re-branded her site and line to go by her own name, Lauren Winter. Seeing her newest collection, the new name makes sense to me. Her designs have matured quite a bit since her very first collection. They are simple, body-conscious, modern and sweetly feminine (without stinging them teeths). Lauren wanted to create a collection that transitioned seamlessly from late winter to early spring, and boy did she deliver. You can find silk shift dresses, light-weight tops, cardigans both in silk and boiled wool, and a jumpsuit in bamboo rayon. After seeing these new designs, and comparing to the former, it really makes me believe in Lauren as a designer (not that I didn’t before). Though this collection feels wholly different from some of her past ones that I adored oh so much, it shows what range she really has. Lauren can do cutesy gal and flip to sophisticated woman in the blink of an eye, and that is something I truly admire.
