if only my feet were a size 6...

when it comes to vintage shopping, more and more i've been drawn to etsy over ebay. the selection just can't be beat, the shopping instant and the prices usually less. of course in the midst of searching for the perfect pieces i've come across great pieces that don't fit me but maybe you all would enjoy. i would love to take home any of these incredible shoes, maybe instead i can live vicariously through you lovelies.

club monaco fall/winter 2010

my picks from the club monaco fall 2010 lookbook.
so many gorgeous pieces. i love the thick cable knit cardigan, the amazing ruched dress on pamela love, all the velvet pieces, the lace shorts and all the incredible coats. so lush and wearable, i need to start saving now. thanks to stephanie for the heads up.


is anyone else head over heels for the new celine tote?
so chic and lux + even alexa has one.
could this end up becoming an iconic/classic handbag, perhaps even the next birkin?
either way i know it's on my lifetime wishlist.

hey guys i know i've been pretty m.i.a. lately and there really is no excuse. i've been doing true north style since late 2007 and sometimes i just need a break from the blogging world. i will be back at full force soon, so i hope you all stay with me. i truly appreciate all my lovelies and all your support.

when lou doillon tweets, she doesn't disappoint.
taking us with her on a recent couture photo shoot at the beach.
here she is in dior and givenchy.
she was having a very hard time trying to get on the horse in that givenchy gown which apparently weighed 10 kilos.
wonder if she made it? follow her here.

current fashion obsession 09.07.10

i've been obsessed with stubbs and wotton for such a long time. the idea of these bespoke slippers as flats is such a tongue and cheek way to prep up an outfit. there are so many different colour combinations when you consider the velvet and the trim, plus the embroidery options are almost endless. sure you can go with the typical monogram but i prefer to pick one of their fantastic images. pirate skulls, flowers, dogs, peace and dollar signs, sea creatures and broken hearts are just some of choices. at the moment i'm loving the anchors and of course the sailor jerry swallows. now if only they didn't cost $450. i guess you got to pay to enter the s&w club. what combination would you all choose?
