1. & 2. The change in season always makes me think about new shoes (although, frankly, I think about new shoes all the time). Lately I have been admiring these F-Troupe mesh sandals, as well as these Aldo Rise heels by Preen. Both so cute.
3. As some of you may know, I am currently having two tattoos that I got when I was 18 removed via laser. It is such a disgusting, time-consuming (it will have taken almost a year of treatments for them to fully fade) process that while I have no problems with tattoos on other people, I’m pretty sure I will never get a tattoo again. Caitlin Shearer just released a line of temporary tattoos, which is so great! No more blown out edges, that’s for sure.
4. The Blonde Woman: an ongoing comic by Aidan Koch. I love her illustration style.
5. I sent this Chloé ad, in all its pleat-y, trapeze-y glory, to the designer who is making my wedding dress. Currently obsessed with my dress having some kind of cape attached to it.
6. Speaking of wedding things, I keep looking at Twigs and Honey’s newest collection because it is just so pretty.


Since we had many requests asking if we could sell the Not Forkchops tote, and since we couldn’t, we decided instead to modify it and turn it into a print. It’s available here, if you’re interested.

    1. Oh my goodness, that is so amazing! I probably read more than you (I read a ridiculous amount), so I'm sure you're fine...

    Ugh, why do we get tattoos when we're 18?
    Would you mind sharing where in Toronto you're having yours removed? I feel like there's so many places offering laser removal these days, so I'd love a first-hand recommandation.

    I'm terrified enough of the process/cost/pain, I'd hate to end up at a shitty laser-clinic.

    I would so appreciate your thoughts!
    Thanks!

    1. I go to a place called On Second Thought (ostlaser.com). I came across a review on Yelp and went in for a consultation. Emily is so great and it's so affordable compared to other places. She's not a doctor and she doesn't work in a clinic, but so far so good! It's definitely painful but it's quick. My tattoos aren't huge (a band around my ankle and maybe 3 inches square on my arm) and each appointment takes about 30 minutes. I wouldn't have been able to afford to go to most other clinics!

  5. Chloe ads are the best.
    They always are beautiful, have beautiful clothes and make you want to live in them.

    1. Aren't they amazing? I find that so often hair ornaments can look cheap (it's the materials), but Myra's work is impeccable. I've seen it in person and I met Myra in Portland a couple of years ago, and have my heart set on owning one of her pieces since!

    2. They'd look stunning with your features and your dark hair! And I agree, it's such a nice change to see quality in wedding accessories instead of the plastic and polyester that's rampant these days. Good to know they look just as beautiful in person :)

    1. Oh wow, those Acne ones are so cute! The F-Troupe ones are maybe a little too cutesy, but I like them anyway...

  9. Yes to a dress with a cape and I really love the sandle with the tassle. I don't have any tattoos but my fear is that I'll be over it within a few months if I did get one. My mind is always-a-changin.

    1. When I got my tattoos I didn't think I would ever change my mind! Ha. It didn't take long for me to realize they were ugly & grow to hate them.

  11. I am so very fond of those F-Troupe sandals.

    The tattoo removal process must be painful Anabela, I hope you're not suffering too much! Seeing my friend go through the process kind of cured me of any temptation of getting a tattoo myself.

    1. Oh, it's fine... not pleasant but completely worth it. I hate the tattoos so much more than I hate the discomfort.

    1. I broke my ankle a few years ago and the pins in there cause it to swell, so now I can't wear straps like that. I can barely do this one up! It's really sad.
