Elk & Dawn

Elk & Dawn is a brand new Toronto based hub for highly coveted designer goods at reasonable prices. We're talking everything from luxury consignment, to vintage and pre-loved high end and designer merchandise. Whether you're in the market for Chanel and Givenchy or Jeffrey Campbell and Michael Kors, the girls at Elk & Dawn have got you covered.

Sergio and I recently popped by their lovely showroom to pick up an Alexander Wang handbag they'd found for me. While we were there, we decided to shoot a couple images to give our readers a preview of what Elk & Dawn has to offer. Some of our fave items included a colourful variety of CĂ©line handbags, a handful to-die-for vintage Chanel, and an amazing MCM backpack.

#SHOECRUSH - DECEMBER 2014

I'd like to start this post off by wishing you all a belated Happy New Year and Happy Shoe Year from the bottom of my heart! 

This month your girl did a fair bit of shoe shopping. If you're anything like me, holiday gift shopping goes something like "one for you, one for me," a method which resulted in this mini haul. 

One of my resolutions this year is to try new things, and what could be a better way to start than with shoes. In the month of December I ventured into realms on opposite ends of the footwear spectrum: Sneakers & Stilettos. Not to worry, my love for all things chunky and 90s inspired still holds strong, but every girl needs a bit of variety in her shoe closet!

VESPER

Bloomin' Brilliant is a hand crafted jewellery line by Toronto based designer Rhea Jacinto. She specializes in brass and combines raw crystals, fur, natural stones, and geometric silhouettes to achieve her unique aesthetic. Her vintage inspired pieces have a modern twist which makes them special and exciting. You know how I love a good juxtaposition! That is exactly what you get with this line. The Eva necklace for example, combines soft, draped silhouettes and geometric details in a way that really works.

I'm wearing the Vesper necklace which features raw rose tone quartz, cascading onyx talons, and geometric brass chain link. This piece is step away from the big 90s inspired gold chains you usually see me in, and has rekindled my love affair with raw crystal!
