1. Equipment Blouses and Dresses – I could live the rest of my life in Equipment blouses. They are the perfect piece to throw on when in doubt of what to wear. I’ve tried the “knock off” let’s say of these shirts, and well they really don’t measure up. I recently picked up a few pieces from the glorious French label, and they are absolutely perfect. There is something about the thickness of the silk they use, along with the roomy style and fit. The Equipment team sure does a hell of a job with the gorgeous colours each season, along with the fun prints that are always just right amount of trendiness. They are most definitely worth the price – as they aren’t your average T-shirt!
2. Diptyque Candles – There is nothing like coming home after a long day of work and running a warm bath and lighting some candles to let the day wear off. My candle of choice? Well anything by Diptyque of course! On a recent trip to New York I stopped in at the Diptyque store on Madison Ave and I felt like a kid in a candy store. So many amazing scents, so many exciting products, so many pretty boxes and bottles! This French luxury candle company is not easy to find, especially in Calgary so I immediately stocked up while in the store in New York. They are that perfect subtle scent to light up any room.
5. Striped Shirts - There is something to be said for a patterned shirt that seems to go with everything. That brings us to the incredible versatility of the striped shirt. My personal favorite has been the blue and white stripe version, but I am keen on trying some other variations in the near future. They are such a staple for any wardrobe and can be converted into so many different styles.
