Designer Lynsday Borschke has been on our favourites list for quite a while now, with her unique "City of Neighbourhoods" toques. They are such a popular item for us here at Blossom Lounge, and we absolutely love when clients come in to purchase their neighbourhood to rep! Shown here is the Distillery toque, which is of course one of our favourites, as we are located in the historic Distillery!
Recently we have brought in Tuck Shop Trading Co. Coats, and have been swooning over them since. The Dreamy Cape, made of Canadian MacAusland's wool and genuine leather is the perfect transitional coat. And with it's classic shape, it will be in your closet forever! The Buffalo check jacket, available in this blue/black/white combo for men, and in the same plus a red/black combo for women, is made of the same wool and leather, plus lined with an extremely soft chambray. This coat is stylish, casual, and perfect for layering in the cooler months.
Make sure to head on over to Blossom Lounge to pick up your City of Neighbourhoods toque today and to give Blossom Lounge a call for availability on the Tuck Shop co. Jackets.

Free People is a line that we here at Blossom Lounge have coveted for a long time. So when we found out super stylish owner Shauna was bringing this boho-chic brand to Blossom Lounge we were beyond excited! One of the newest pieces to hit the store is this beautifully detailed Open Waters Charlotte Dress. We are completely obsessed with the print, fabric, colour, and of course all of the unique detailing. The sheer lace arms and smocked waist band make this dress beyond gorgeous. Styling wise, might we suggest really playing up the boho vibe and choose chunkly leather booties and a wide brimmed hat. You will be channeling Stevie Nicks in no time!

One of the most recent brands to join the Blossom Lounge family is By Rosie Jane. A self named brand that came to life after the creator made the scent for herself back in 2008. After being asked on a daily basis what she was wearing, Rosie decided to turn the scent into a business. She named the perfume Leila Lou after her first born daughter. Leila Lou is a clean scent with notes of pear, jasmine, and fresh cut grass. It is a completely addicting and alluring scent. After the popularity of Leila Lou, Rosie created a second fragrance in 2014, naming it Tilly after her youngest daughter. Tilly evokes the scents of summer with notes of grapefruit, pineapple and tropical gardenia. Both scents are beautiful and so is the packaging to match.
All products shown above are available at Blossom Lounge

Besides the fact that this wool/leather/plaid combo is absolutely stunning, I love the fact that it is proudly made in Canada. The jacket, which is available in this navy/white combo and a red/black combo is designed by none other than Lindsay Borschke, who also happens to be the creator of the "City of Neighbourhoods" toques. These jackets are the perfect topper for now when the weather is just starting to get chilly, and later as a layering piece underneath a heavier jacket. The plaid makes them quintessentially Canadian while the luxe leather detailing keeps them fresh and stylish.
Zoe Organics is an all natural family line of products specially formulated for mom and baby. With no added fragrances or essentials oils, this cream is great for ultra dry and ultra sensitive skin. I tend to get a bit of eczema on my hands when the weather changes, and a little of this cream helps quite a bit.
A new line for Blossom Lounge, Gorjana is a stunning jewelry line that should be on every ones fall wish list! Although everything from Gorjana at BL is gorgeous, this hammered gold bar necklace is too perfect not to pass up. I love that it can be worn alone or layered with other pieces.
Anna Rifle Bond makes the prettiest of designs on everything from greeting cards to temporary tattoos. But it is this black and gold polka dot Iphone case that I am lusting over this fall. I love a classic polka dot pattern, and the gold polka dots on this case really pop against the stark black background.
5. Lippy La Moss: A dark and vampy lip is a must this fall. This Lippy liquid lipstick in La Moss delivers just that. I love the fact that this is a liquid that deposits colours as opaque as a stick, yet the applicator never dulls like a regular lipstick does.
6. Butter London The Full Monty: What better to go with a moody lip than a metallic nail? I think nothing! I have used Butter London nail polish so many times and love the brush and formula. This nail polish is definitely a fall must have list!
On fall evenings I love taking the time to relax and enjoy either long showers or baths. This lavender wash by Love Fresh is the perfect companion as it's soothing properties relax me and make it easier to fall asleep. I also love how gentle and non-drying this all natural wash is on my skin.
If there is one thing I have been using non-stop, it is this candle by Rosie Jane. Although I wouldn't say that this is a fall scented candle, it smells so incredible that I want to keep it in my house all year round. With notes of pear, jasmine and fresh cut grass this candle is sure to be a fave.
10. Henry & Bellow super skinny high waisted jeans: Every fall I feel like a new dark pair of skinnies are on my list of things to purchase. These Henry & Belle super skinny high waisted jeans are great because they fit every curve of my bottom half beautifully and the high waist smooths the top half out. These jeans give my legs, but and belly a perfect smooth appearance that I am always looking for in a great pair of jeans. The deep indigo wash is also a classic so these jeans will last for seasons.

Autumn is the best season to showcase your fashion sense. The best thing happening right now is the boyfriend jean. It's comfy, versatile, and for sure a fall staple. Dress the boyfriend jean up or down with leather or heels, crop tops or comfy sweaters. The boyfriend jean is the must-have item of the fall season.
