    Well Worn: Michelle’s John Fluevog designer shoes

    July 31st, 2014     by Michelle Kay     Comments

    I hadn’t thought of these shoes in years. At the time, they seemed so precious, so adorable, the perfect way to hide what I believed were my ginormous feet. They were John Fluevogs in Mary Jane style. They were stiff black leather with red flowers embroidered on the top, such delicate, feminine little things—a modern twist on silk brocade. They reminded me of those cloth shoes you find in Chinatown but they came with a $200 price tag. READ MORE

    Well Worn: Andrea’s loved denim jacket

    July 24th, 2014     by Andrea Manica     Comments

    My favourite article of clothing is my denim jacket. My grandmother bought it for me from a thrift store in Kitchener, Ontario about five years ago. I don’t have much attachment to any other item of clothing because they come and go, most of my wardrobe is made up of clothes I got for free, but I have yet to find a jacket that fits as well as this one does, and matches as well with every outfit as this one does. This jacket has travelled with me to Boston, Pittsburgh, Serbia, and California. READ MORE

    Well Worn: Shannon’s travelling pashmina

    July 17th, 2014     by Shannon Clarke     Comments

    On our last day in Europe, my friends and I walked into a store across from the Trevi Fountain in Rome and tried to spend the rest of our travel money. For nine days we’d been careful, haggling in Athens and forgoing the second and third cups of hot chocolate in Sicily. So when I saw the pashminas in the store, I ended up buying three – two for me, one for my mom. For some reason the patterned yellow, red and maroon pashmina became my favourite. I didn’t realize how much I loved it until recently. Flipping through photographs of the last few years, that pashmina was everywhere; I’d managed to add it to nearly everything that seemed appropriate. READ MORE
