When I was a teen I used to have two pairs of Dr. Martens. Basic black leather (obviously – black goes with everything) and an awesome pair of faux-fur leopard print. I LOVED them both! And yes – it would really be cool if I found them hiding somewhere in a box of my old stuff stored in my parents’ basement. But then again, maybe I should just leave the past behind me and move forward in a pair of these…

Last weekend I attended the Home County Folk Festival here in London. There’s a festival almost every weekend here in the city but I think Home County might just be my favourite. The music is great, the crowd is relaxed, and there are always some creative vendors. This year I was most attracted to the pretty jewelry and the lace and vintage window display at Fierce Deer, a Toronto-based shop owned by Kate Swan.

the Fierce Deer earring collection displayed on lace-backed vintage windows
Fierce Deer necklace charms
pretty knobs (remember this post?) hold necklaces
a cup full of charms that are used for custom design

it’s the details – like the consistent deer theme – that make this shop so charming
Kate’s white cat – brings the shop good luck!
what I walked away with – a tiny bear on a long chain necklace – a must for my menagerie
It was great to meet Kate and to explore her charming jewelry shop. If you’d like to see more – go on and visit Fierce Deer.

Not all hats are created equal and today we’re featuring the ultimate in glam -yet practical- toppers.
The floppy extra-wide brim hat is lightweight due to its straw construction, and all that extra girth will provide the wearer with ample shade and a fun accessory whether you’re lounging by a fancy pool or heading to the beach for a day.
I’ve always wanted one and it’s looking like this will be my summer to pounce on this tireless classic. Looks great with any swim suit, a breezy maxi dress, or knee-length shorts for a day of urban exploration. We recommend it in white although the colours available are quite fun to coordinate with your suit- black, fuschia, and natural straw.
