Most know Rev Wear as the annual eco-friendly fashion show in Hamilton. However it is also the name of the fashion forward clothing line by Sapphire Singh. She takes vintage pieces and refurbishes them a lot like Preloved. Her pieces are often asymmetrical and witty. My favourites are the Men's Yellow Cardigan with the heart patch and the women's red asymmetrical sweater dress. I am happy to announce that Hawk & Sparrow is now housing some of Sapphire's designs.

This is my kind of bling!

Found this photo on Tales of Endearment - Kind of Random but I just love the colours!

I am not that big on macarons, I just think they look pretty. Did you know that Laduree is coming to NYC?!

I love the simplicity of these shoes. They are elegant everyday sandals.
I have become obsessed with everything Navajo. Love this bag! But its $2000.00!

This has been an awesome week filled with good food, intense life chats and awesome dancing with best friends and family. I love life.

Wayyyy Back!

A friend picked this bracelet (circa 1890) up at an auction for me. It is originally from France but made in Turkey. There is some arabic writing on it which I am currently trying to get translated. It has an interesting shape and a secure fastener to lock it in place. It is the oldest piece I have in the store and I am dying to know its full history. It's so cool to have something that old. Come down to the store to see this gem!

A More Reserved Time

On a trip to Montreal last weekend, my mom visited a very dear friend of ours who gave her some of her mother's wedding night lingerie to give to me for the store. I am so touched and can't get over how beautiful the pieces are. Maybe it's me romanticizing the past but there is something so classy and elegant about vintage lingerie that you just don't find in modern day lingerie. It could be that we are so overtly sexual these days that lingerie reflects that attitude whereas in the past sex was not to be discussed and the lingerie certainly has a more innocent and slightly reserved look. I love the pastel colours and the intricate stitching in these pieces.

How cozy is this room?

Ok. I love these so much!

Such a nice idea for a birthday cake...
I would totally carry these macaron rings by Kiel Mead in my store but they are $300 dollars!

I love everything about this banner! Such a simple idea but so pretty!

I have been in very good mood lately - maybe it is all these beautiful things I have been stumbling upon. Hope your week goes well! xo
