New Arrivals : Wouters & Hendrix SS14 (Last shipment!)


We just received our final shipment of jewelry from Wouters and Hendrix for the season – and it’s beautiful! We have new pieces from the current Zou Zou collection, as well as pieces from the Wouters and Hendrix carry through Favourites collection. Favourites are styles that the designers produce in addition to their seasonal collection, and are made up of “favourites” from previous collections.

The colourway of these new arrivals is softer and lighter, in comparison to the black onyx and white mother of pearl of the earlier arrivals from Zou Zou. So now there is really something for everyone!

New Arrivals : Maison Boinet SS14


We just received some beautiful new belts from Maison Boinet. Made in France since 1858, we have a number of new styles that are great for cinching the waist on a dress, as well as replenishment in popular styles (like the wide black belt pictured above – which is great for jeans and trouser as it fit nicely in the belt loops). We also have the popular adjustable “one size” belts, this season in classic black and brown.

We Heart Jane Hollinger

Jane Hollinger 14K gold heart necklace, $399

In between posts about our new spring arrivals, I just had to mention a classic piece by our favourite goldsmith, Jane Hollinger. Years ago she designed the mini heart shaped necklace as a gift for her sister, and it has gone on to be a classic in her collection. The heart is moveable (rotates freely from upright – see above, to sideways – my fave! As seen below on the bracelet). Even self-proclaimed non-necklace person, Grace of Design Sponge, is a fan!

A great gift for yourself, your daughter, sister, or anyone else you heart.
