Oddly Artistic

Take a peep at these whimsical domino pendants from the designer Odd Bird, who is from my province, Ontario, Canada! "Odd Bird transforms ordinary objects into unique pieces of jewelry. Inspired by game pieces and other bric-a-brac Tara Campbell of Odd Bird creates jewelry that is fun to wear and purposely a little quirky."
They also remind me of mah-jong tiles. And believe it or not, a friend actually made one into a necklace, which I thought was the coolest thing ever. These are much more colorful and they resemble those drawings in the fairytale books that I read when I was young.

Psychedelic Froggy $36

Riding Piggy $36

Penguin Domino Pendant $36

Yellow Flora $36

All available at the uber cool store Chocosho.

Manoush Crochet Cardigan in Rose

Now I formally aren't too crazy about crochet cardigans, mainly because I find they tend to make me bulk-looking, especially in the upper-arm area. Who wants to look like a linebacker? But I'm totally attracted to this one. It's got all the crochet-y prettiness without the weight. It's not my mom's crochet cardigan, that's for sure. It'd be perfect to go over a body-skimming black jersey dress. And I don't care if my guy says it reminds him of a doily!

When not to wear a dress

We went canoeing with some friends on the weekend. I gotta say it was great fun, despite the fact that one couple capsized when they hit a rock in a shallow part of the river not even 50 meters from the starting point. Not a good start for first-timers, but they were such good sports. If it had been me, I would've cried, lol. No, not really, but I would've been bitching and moaning about having to wear wet clothes for 3 hours. I was glad I didn't decide to wear one of my dresses (yep I contemplated that, silly me), 'cause I did end up getting my shorts wet with the splashing of the water. But it was all great fun. So when's a good time not to wear a dress? When you go canoeing. Because there's no way you'd look like a lady climbing in and out of the canoe shrieking that you are going to tip over if your guy isn't holding down the boat steady enough for you. When's a good time to wear a dress? When you've reached the destination after a 3-hour arduous trip, and you are being rewarded with an all-you-can-eat sushi dinner with great friends.

Deal Alert - Dutchy Handbags

If you like simple classic shapes with a little playful side and solid functionality of a leather bag, you will like Dutchy handbags. Dutchy was started in 2004 by designer Audree Halasz, a fun-loving San Francisco girl next door. Audree began to develop her fashion and design sense as a young girl in the ’70s, when her parents owned a fashion boutique. In 2001, after years of costume design, Audree began designing and sewing her own handbags. She was so impressed with the positive feedback she received that she decided to form her own company—dutchy.

These are great deals!

Aviator Glasses - forever classic

I totally agree with Styledash's article Styles that Stick: Aviator sunglasses. They are such a classic, if you invest in a good pair, you'll look stylish in them for many many years to come. And they are great for both girls and guys. I love my guy in his aviator and I can't resist in borrowing his. If you really love the current trend of over-sized sunglasses, then you can go for the extra big aviators like the Stella McCartney ones. Or you can stick with the classic aviator (which is what I prefer for my face shape), especially ones with thin light-toned earpieces.
