Popular in the 1930’s and a quick stint in the early 1970’s — the grid pattern is once again a hot commodity. We like to think of the grid pattern as plaid’s cooler little sister, being possibly the easiest print to ever pull off. Will you be on the grid this Spring/Summer?
It may sound eerie but ocular pieces have been staring back at us lately. Big fashion labels like Vera Wang and Kenzo Takada unleashed the power of the all-seeing eye in their outfits for their Fall/Winter 2013 collections. Do you want to get in on this eye-catching look? Take a scroll through our favorite picks of clothes, stylish accessories and eye-poppin’ home decor.
We’ve been loving this Insight Necklace ($430) from Lulu Frost. This statement necklace features several eye-shaped links with allover crystal embellishment.
Enjoy a good pairing of eyeball shirts and peplum skirts! How about this amazing winky eyeball blouse from Primark? On a side note, let your eyes wander on over to this gals website – she has great style.
We found a few design ideas that translate the all-seeing eye trend from runway to room. These playful pillows will help you wake up bushy tailed and bright eyed. We would have loved this in my teenie-boppin’ years.
From the mystical third eye to the protective evil eye, and even to the cartoonish googly eye, peepers have suddenly taken the fashion world by storm — and even we didn’t see this one coming! What’s your favorite ocular trend do you have your eye on?

The Kensington Market Winter Solstice parade is a tried-and-true tradition (now in its 24th year) that, quite literally, lights up the longest, darkest night of the year. How, you ask? With the aid of a procession of lantern-holders, and a finale event that sees fire-throwers and the burning of an effigy. At 7:00 PM gather at the corner of Oxford St. and Augusta Ave. Then slowly make your way (wielding lanterns) to Alexandra Park, led by a marching band.
