SwankFinds: Black & White and Striped All Over!

You may remember our black and gold obsession that came to life back in late 2013.  While that obsession is still going strong, we've found another colour/pattern palette that could stand to rival the black and gold combination {or as Lil J puts it, shades not colour}:


This "shade" combo is definitely our anthem for 2014.  Just looking at it gets us motivated, so it's no surprise that our obsession has been channeled into an inspiration board for 2014:

  1. Kate Spade Spiral Notebook {$14 CAD}:  We think the name says enough and if you really know Kate Spade, then you know this notebook is a stylish and on-trend piece perfect to write down your dreams and goals for 2014.  Available online and in-stores at Chapters Indigo.
  2. Ikea's TICKAR Dinnerware Collection {prices vary}:  Did you see the picture?  Enough said.  And, yes, we could be currently drooling over this new dinnerware line.  Available at Ikea stores. 
  3. Kate Spade Black Stripe Umbrella {$38 CAD}:  Also from Kate Spade and perfect for those rainy Vancouver days, this trendy umbrella comes together with a pop of pink - perfect for all you girly girls out there!  Available online and in-stores at Chapters Indigo.
  4. Faas Ashton Moccasins {$54}:  We can't resist a cute pair of moccasins and Faas Designs has nailed it with the stripes - in black and white, of course!  Available online from Faas Designs.
  5. SS Print Shop "The Mantra" Print {$35}:  Travel. Charm. Love. Create. Sparkle.  We couldn't have said it better and can already imagine this mantra hanging front and center in our new office space.  Available online from SS Print Shop.

  9. Kate Spade Gift Wrap {$12 CAD}:  Okay, we just may be in heaven.  Seriously how perfect is this double-sided wrapping paper?  Gold dots and black & white stripes?  We're almost hyperventilating, it's too good to be true!  Available online and in-stores at Chapters Indigo.
  10. Black & White Striped Party Straws {$5 CAD - 25/pk}:  Because we're always ready for a party and 2014 is our year to shine!  Available online at Confetti & Sparkle Party Shop.

I'm so excited to be able to share these amazing finds with you!  While a number of the items on our SwankFinds lists may have been personally used/tested/reviewed by moi, only the elite few will make the list. And there will be items that have never touched my fingers, items that I could only dream of having and items that just deserve to be considered a swank find.  Enjoy!
