Brand We Love: One Grey Day

One Grey Day Los Angeles

This unpredictable Spring weather calls for layering transitional pieces, from lightweight sweaters to edgy cardigans. LA brand “One Grey Day” is all about creating the perfect pieces to wear all year long as well as on those rainy grey Spring days. In 2012, Los Angeles native and entrepreneur Bradley David set out with a vision and the name “one grey day” and the knitwear brand was born.

One Grey Day is a contemporary women’s knitwear focused brand based in Los Angeles and  designed by Steven Oo who is known for his creativity and superb stitching skills. Using only the highest quality yarns, One Grey Day is known for using a neutral palette with splashes of colour that are concurrent with the season.

The funky layering pieces that One Grey Day makes adds something different to your wardrobe as they are both fashionable and functional. Who says you can’t be warm and on-trend at the same time?

Based in Los Angeles, Sonix is a quality-driven accessory brand specializing in distinctively cool fashion accessories for the style concious girl. Since 2010, they have dedicated themselves to creating products that are not only unique but also withstand the wear and tear of everyday life. They follow the latest trends each season to offer unique collections several times a year. They take pride in their accessories, with each piece being mindfully designed and precision crafted. They are all about quality, creativity and innovation.

They strongly believe that high quality should not be compromised for great style. They also believe that style is personal and influential when you make it your own. That’s why they create distinctively cool fashion accessories that are just so you.

Brand We Love: Stance Socks

3043543011._CB380809013_SX300_

As you all know, we love our socks (Read our previous sock blog post here). The more fun they are, the better. If you haven’t already acquainted yourself with the newest addition to our sock family, read all about Stance socks here. The Stance brand represents expression and embraces a spirit of individuality through a unique product offering, featuring different series and collaborations. Blending design and technology, Stance has designed socks as uncommonly cool as the people who wear them. Their comfortable, colorful and well-made take on socks is turning them into the new pocket square for males (and statement piece for women) and becoming a pop-culture status symbol along the way.

Read more about the brand and scroll through some upcoming style, below.

Stance was officially founded at the end of 2009, with its first pairs of socks hitting retail in 2010. Now, Stance are sold in more than 40 countries with a reputation for designs that are quirky, cheeky and fun. Worn on celebrities feet, doing collaborations with people like Rihanna, being sung about by Jay-Z, and even scoring a deal with the NBA, has set Stance as the must-have sock brand for fashion lovers, music lovers and athletes alike.

Self descibed “serial entrepreneur”, Jeff Kearl, who previously worked for Skull Candy headphones, learned to look for categories suffering from “benign neglect.” He remembers walking the aisles of Target in San Clemente, considering products like sunblock, jewelry and luggage. “Then we came to the sock aisle,” he said. “And it was literally black, white, gray and brown. The crazy argyle patterns were on the bottom rack and most of the socks were in these big value-packed plastic baggies.” Over the next few months, Kearl dove deep on socks, paying attention to how they were displayed in stores, how they were priced, how sales associates reacted. He says he bought hundreds of pairs on his way to the realization that that this was exactly the sleepy, overlooked, under-valued category that had serious potential.

Kearl was joined by a team comprised of people from various other brands such as Oakley, Billabong and Element, for a well rounded team from the surf and skater world, ensuring an ultra-cool sock brand.

By injecting hip prints, colours and designs into what has become nothing more than a boring accessory, they began trailblazing a path to becoming the #1 must-have sock brand in the world.

Valentines Day Gift Guide

Why is it that Winter seems so much longer than Summer? It seems to drag on and on. After a month of  ‘Dry January” and trying to stick to your New Years resolutions, there’s only one Holiday that keeps us going- Valentines Day. Feburary 14th is the day set aside to help get rid of the Winter Blues, binge on chocolate and red wine and cozy up with your loved one. We’ve decided to put together a list of gifts for those loved ones, whether its your family, friend, or significant other (Feel free to send this link to your SO to drop not-so-subtle hints). We’ve got everything from warm and soft PJs to stunning jewelry. Remember, not every Valentines gift has to be pink, red, or adorned with hearts. It’s all about personalization!

Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The Holidays. Putting up lights, baking Christmas cookies, getting the family together for big festive dinners, building snowmen and attending the numerous holiday markets that are popping up all over the city.

Except suddenly- It’s five days until Christmas and you’ve barely started with your Christmas shopping. We’ve all been there. With all that going on its hard to find the time to get to the mall, find parking and trek from one side of the mall to the other to get the perfect gifts for all of your loved ones- and now you’re almost out of time!

Luckily for you, we have comprised a holiday gift guide to cover everyone on your list! We’ve got something for him, her, the kids, stocking stuffers, secret Santas and maybe even a little something for yourself.

Make a sure that you’ve made your list, checked it twice, and found everyone on your list something nice 😉

1.  For the silly one: Pom Pom everything

This season, we’ve been seeing pompoms everywhere: especially in the shape of keychains and on top of warm knit hats, and we’ve got an assortment of both in a range of colours and price points.

We’ve also got a great range of PJ sets, snuggly robes, night shirts, seep masks and slippers. My family has a long tradition of opening one gift on Christmas Eve- and it’s always something cozy to sleep in and lounge in on Christmas morning.

7.  For the Philanthropist:  Shine the Light On and Krochet Kids

If you haven’t already fallen in love with Toronto’s own Eli Brown’s line “Shine the Light On”, you will. STLO’s great t-shirts, sweaters and mugs help to stop the stigma against mental health. It has become a customer favourite and makes for a great gift. If graphic tees aren’t their style, Krochet Kids is a line of great knitwear that also has a great story. Read more about STLO and Krochet Kids on the blog.
