The start of 2013 has brought us some lovely press in the blogosphere ... First up, the ultra eclectic Shiny Squirrel
. An image heavy blog with some pretty neat design and photography inspirations..I was quite chuffed to spot BoD amongst the coolness.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Next, the lovely Meaghan
of Larkspur Shoppe
gave our SS13 collection a glowing writeup on her blog.
This is what Meaghan had to say about Book of Deer: "I came across the label Book of Deer when I was wasting time browsing Refinery 29 at work last week. The label was started by Edinburgh born Ellidh Ho, who grew up in Hong Kong and then went to London to study at Saint-Martin’s College (does that make everyone else think of Pulp, too?). She eventually ended up back in Hong Kong, where this label was born in 2010. Most of my favorite memories of Summer as a girl involve canoe trips to a place called Spider Island, making tin foil dinners, going to bed with my hair smelling like lake water and firewood, and singing camp songs while I hiked with eight other giggling girls. So, it isn’t any surprise to me, that I’m drawn to their SS13 collection, which is inspired by sleepaway camp (and even includes a dress with a glow-in-the-dark print of fireflies trapped in mason jars). And, while it’s true that I have consciously been trying to steer my wardrobe away from cutesy as I get older (the label describes itself as having a “distinctive element of cute”), I can’t help it if the lovely printed fabrics -which are all hand drawn, digitally printed, and original to the brand – adorable fabrics and easy to wear pieces caught my eye. Plus, let’s face it, I don’t think I’ll ever stop liking peter-pan collars."
Toronto based Meagan and her pal Alex run a Vintage Etsy shop full of just the type of adorable retro clothing I would hoard myself! Check out their shop here
, if you like Book of Deer you'll love Larkspur too! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~And then came a post from Liss
of Daydream Lily
. I've been following Daydream Lily since I was but a lost thing in college, wondering where I would find my space in the fashion world. Liss' blog somehow captures just the type of aesthetic and lifestyle I strive to express in my designs, so when this lovely post appeared I felt a little glow of achievement. Sometimes the internet just amazes me, we can truly cast out nets as far as our wifi speed allows us and reach like-minded girls all over the world.
