Outfit of the Day: Commes des Garcon and Surplus

Today I am wearing my favorite purchase from our Edmonton trip, my men’s Commes des Garcon polka dot shirt. I purchased it from a wonderful store called Gravity Pope.If you have been to Edmonton (or Vancouver) I am sure you are familiar with this well curated store. Despite being made for a man, it is cut perfectly for me and the slight puff sleeves are a stuffy detail to this otherwise hilarious shirt. Perfect!

Vintage resin bangle bracelets found by hitchcock Madrona. Sterling silver and druzy quartz ring by Hitchcock Madrona.  “Big Bang” Necklace by Surplus.

How fun is this piece? Harriet, designer of Surplus Jewelry, attended the Louis Vuitton runway show in Paris in 2000. All attendees got a Louis Vuitton compass-type-do-hicky and that is the center piece of this fabulous pendant. The re-purposed, vintage water faucet knob (yes, that is what it is!) looks so scientific – like an atom. It hangs around your neck with vintage green leather that has been sewn together. The color combination, patina of the old knob, conceptual nature, and whimsy of this piece are all indicative of Harriet and her creations. This is quite a conversation piece!

We are gearing up for our next interior transformation with a Dustin road trip next week. He will be scouring the countryside from Seattle to Salt Lake City for treasures befitting the shops next incarnation. Stay tuned!

XOXO
