Who’s with me?

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…

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.

Isn’t it refreshing to see a beautiful knit all in white on the cover of a rather bid deal mag?
The stunning Lily Donaldson was photographed by Richard Bush wearing a Chanel spring 2012 dress for Vogue Russia’s July issue. I love the shape of this dress- architectural in shape with high texture value.
Happy White Wednesday, everybody! Stay cool!

Welcome to the second installment of the new series, White Out. This series gives readers the opportunity to showcase their white loves. This month I received a few photos of white clothing from our readers (okay, okay, they’re also my friends). While some shy away from wearing white because they fear accidental spills and such, I embrace wearing white (you’ll often see me in a white shirt) and it seems our readers do too.

(I love that it’s also on a white hanger and on a white door!)
Vanessa sent me this photo as a sort of thank you card. It made me laugh out loud. I wonder – what exactly would you pair these socks with? I can’t say that I’m actually going to run out and buy a pair.
Thanks to Emily, Sarah and Vanessa for sending in these photos!
Note: If you would like to take part in the White Out series here on the blog then please submit your photos of design in white to me at whitecabana [at] gmail [dot] com. Thanks! -Jordana
