A clumsy woman’s guide to caring for suede shoes

I was walking on sunshine, in love with my new shoes, feeling like I was on top of the world, wearing them in the house, out of the house, cooking, when—uh-oh. Don’t ask me how, but I got a drop of olive oil smack-dab on […]

The generational history of knits

The generational history of knits

Ever since I was a little girl, I remember my mom wearing this beautifully knit fisherman’s sweater with natural horn buttons. She would bring it out when we ate late summer meals outside, and wrap herself up in the crisp air. I admired it for […]

Ethical fashion is not all that accessible. I know it, you know it. Buying a shirt for $100 is outside of the realm of possibility a lot of the time. And while I do save up for some cherished items from ethical brands, my first […]

How to transition your summer pieces for fall

I can’t believe it! Another summer is wrapping up and we’re all looking forward to crisp leaves and cosy sweaters— well, I’m sure some of us are! I’m a little sad to see the days getting shorter, and was only just getting used to taking […]

Styling Kotn’s new woven shirts

I can’t do justice to the story of Kotn. A Toronto & Egypt-based garment brand that started with simple, staple t-shirts made from Egyptian cotton, they just know how to tell a story. Really, really well. What I can share with you is my own […]
