The Look: 1940's Cabin Chic + A vintage Mattress
Fun Fact: We had a smashing time at our friend Ryan's Cottage over the weekend! I loved this vintage bed sheet so much I made it into a jacket. Its a bottom sheet with the elastic around the edges so it was easy to do. I just put it over my shoulders and twisted it around my arms and belted it. It reminded me of Miguel Adrover's mattress jacket that he did in 2000 but its a drapey, loose Japanese-esque version of it.
PS. We are going to be on eTalk tonight EST at 7PM discussing "Festival Dressing" and the launch of the new "TopShop Collection" sold at the store Jonathan and Olivia!!! It's the only store in Canada that now offers TopShop clothes! Ohhh YAAAA!!! Tune in! Pin It Now!

We went with a bunch of friends to El Mocambo in Toronto to see the amazing and super talented supermodel, Karen Elson sing from her new album, "The Ghost who Walks", and it was such an unbelievable night! Her music is sooooo cool, it has a country/rock/folk gothic sound! Everybody in the audience was completely mesmerized by her angelic voice. She also looked super fantastic (like always!) Her peach dress looked 1920's vintage, peach lipstick, porcelain skin, and red hair was the perfect combination of country/burlesque chic! On a funny note, last Christmas, we made a gingerbread Peace train and needed somebody to drive it. So we picked Karen! Hahaha! Check out the pics HERE! El Mocambo is such a small venue and it felt like Karen was serenading us all night! What a special night!xo Beckerman girls
