But I somehow just discovered accessories this week!
Take this plain navy dress for instance.
Consider how the addition of accessories elevates
and changes up the look of the same dress with...
above: Arielle de Pinto A/W 09 necklaces
I am in love with these Autumn/Winter 09 samples from Arielle de Pinto.
The Canadian designer uses crochet techniques to construct matte, yet shimmering effects in her jewelry.
The necklace shown on the right is also a pouch and was shown in the Autumn/Winter lookbook carrying a mini cellphone. Amazing.
above: Aschon scarf sample A/W 09
Before I held the silky, limited edition aschon scarf in my hand, I had always associated scarves with a certain bourgeois stuffiness. Not so with these gorgeous accessories created by a Berlin design duo. I'm not only addicted to the tactile touch of the fabric, but the infinite possibilities presented by the interesting print. Scarves from aschon: a new addiction.

I finally caved and made my first Etsy purchase with an amazing and versatile harness from popular Etsy seller, Norwegian Wood! The triple elastic harness is comfortable to wear and creates a flattering waistline without being constricting. Love it!
Speaking of Awesome Canadian Designers...
Did you notice that the common thread from this week is awesome Canadian designers (mono, Arielle de Pinto and Norwegian Wood)? Well here's another Canadian to add to your radar: I interviewed womenswear designer Jeremy Laing for my gig at Dossier Journal's style blog. Check it out here!
