20 Days of Walrus! Day two and three: Cursor &Thread + Coral & Cloud December 05 2014

Since when can you combine advent days? Well, since now! Here are days two and three of the Walrus advent - featuring two of our favourite local companies!

 

Stephen and Jennifer have been together in one way or another for over 18 years, and after years of being in the industry in one way or another, they've set out to create semi-casual accessories that were once considered everyday wear, but have since been reserved for formal occasions. Think cotton bow ties worn with an untucked shirt. 


(whoa, looking good)

We love the tactile experience of feeling the fabrics that Cursor & Thread use. Super soft cotton and wool are the major fabrics and really do manage to make formal wear something you can do every day. 

Even if you can't tie a bow tie (which you could learn here) the bow ties come tied already, so if you're careful you never have to do it yourself. 

We also carry their ties, suspenders - and for the women, french knots. What is a french knot you say? Only the cutest accessory to a woman who loves collared shirts' closet ever!

For any fashionistas in the family, these are sure to make their holidays merry.  






Bow ties - $59-$69
French knots - $59
Ties - $89
Suspenders - $79

 

Another local designer, Coral + Cloud, lives just around the corner from us! We love featuring talent so close to home.

We love the colours that Mikko chooses for her necklaces. Every wooden bead is hand painted, and the necklace itself uses recycled t-shirt fabric (laundered with natural detergents, for those with sensitive skin). Each piece is one-of-a-kind or limited edition, so you know you'll be able to stand out from the crowd with these fun, chunky necklaces. They come in small or large, with reference to the size of the bead.

  
  

Large - $48
Small - $33

Maybe tomorrow will be only a day's worth of advent - maybe it will be three days worth! There is only one way to find out...
