As summer winds down, I’m thrilled to share one of the most exciting parts of my summer with you. These high-rise, cropped, patterned wonders were a purchase made while I was in Tokyo in June. The moment I saw them, I knew that they were coming home with me. While they’re certainly not an everyday garment, they’re pretty amazing. Hence—Japants.
The bag was a thrifty find in Shanghai at the Tanzifang markets. Another world traveller…
Today’s Photographer: Rebecca—I’m pretty sure.
Sometimes in the heat of the summer, you still need to bust out a jacket—just because the outfit needs completion. And you deal with the sweat, and you deal with the heat because it’s worth it.
Today’s Photographer: Katie, who snapped these on our way to lunch a couple of weeks ago.
So, this is the first outfit that I’ve posted since like January. It’s been a busy 2013, and blogging simply had to take a back seat. I’m back at it now, though with less attempted frequency. I’ll select the outfits to share more diligently, and hopefully give you something exciting to check out (when you check out daily haberdashery). It just might be less “daily”…
Here’s an outfit that I put together for a very ordinary work day. But one in which I wanted to rock this summery tie.
Now that the sunshine has officially begun (and spring feels like it might actually arrive), I need to get through the last of my winter photos. Here’s an interesting combination of particular note. I love this window-pane blazer, and especially with white jeans. Why not?
Bow Tied Paradise
What I love about this outfit is that it somehow remains subtle, despite my decision to pair a patterned bow-tie with a patterned shirt, and to wear coloured pants, and bright socks. But I think that’s sometimes what style is all about—integrating the loud with the soft, the subtle with the brave, making a statement while whispering. You know?
Today’s Photographer: Sam, who found some amazing angles with this photoset, right before we found some amazing lunch.
There’s very little that says “Canadian” more than lumberjack plaid, tartan, and a Hudson Bay-inspired sweater. And that’s what this look is all about—the maple leaf forever.
Even though I picked up these Fluevogs from a vintage store in Chicago.
Sometimes the middle of winter requires a pop of colour to make you feel alive. And by sometimes, I mean most of the time. This outfit was inspired by a winter look a saw with a bright orange sweater and white jeans. I took the inspiration and applied my own wardrobe.
Winter wear doesn’t have to be boring. I found this amazing coat on sale mid-way through the cold weather this winter, and it inspired me to blog again—you’ll see that in the next few photosets. And an outfit of blue always needs yellow shoes.

I’m into things that match—don’t get me wrong. But sometimes the day simply calls for a lot of vintage leather/pleather. And this day it was my Thriller-inspired jacket, my carry-on flight bag, and these amazing fringed loafers.
Today’s Photographer: Katie, who agreed this backdrop made me look “bad ass”.
A Pop of Yellow
Though this looks like the weather we’re having now, this photoset was actually taken just before the snow starting to fall all winter long. I’m still very behind in getting these posts up.
But this is also a pretty decent spring look—winter-y sweater with a light jacket and bright shoes. Just a pop of yellow to let us know that spring is around the corner…
