The Friday Five: Moncler

I learned about the luxury clothing brand Moncler when I was working in the Swiss Alps.  Since then, I’ve been watching news of the brand pop up here and there in my online and offline travels. The brand was founded in 1952 in Monestier-de-Clermont, France (where it got its name), and it’s now located in Italy. France. Italy. Switzerland. Of course it’s no wonder that I’m interested in this brand!

While I have mostly associated Moncler with puffy, chic ski jackets, its collections for women, men, and children offer much more than this. Take a look.

And here are five of my favourite Moncler-in-white items for women.

Choisa jacket, $2,226

ribbed knit scarf, $248

roll neck ribbed sweater, $593

Grenoble textured sweatshirt, $558

quilted down jacket, $1603

Isn’t the last down jacket with ruffle hem sweet? Such a pretty design for colder weather. I probably wouldn’t ski in it, but it would be great for apres-ski!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Trivia Thursday: Herringbone Pattern

Can you name the pattern of this floor?

Room for Tuesday

It’s called herringbone. We see it in the interior design and fashion worlds all the time, and people really do love herringbone marble or wood floors (including me, of course – have you seen my foyer?). The term herringbone is named as such for its resemblance to the bones of a fish such as the herring (see more at herringbone pattern).

Personal: 5 Things on My Mind

Here’s today’s list of things that have been on my mind lately.

Starbucks Rewards

Do you collect them? I do. I barely notice them, but then, when I get an email saying that I’ve earned a reward, I get happy. I usually stock-pile my rewards. Then, when I’m having a crappy day or I don’t feel like making lunch or I’m out with a friend, I can treat myself (or us!). It’s a little welcome bonus.

Essie Gel Setter Top Coat

I’m not very into beauty products, but I’ve been using this top coat for about a year now, and it’s amazing. I also use the Essie Grow Stronger base coat, and I’m sure the combination of these two polishes helps to make my nails shiny and strong.

Pop-Up Windows

Pop-up windows on websites annoy the heck out of me. Is there a way to make them permanently disappear?

Bird Seed

Does anyone have any recommendations for bird seed that actually attracts birds? I keep buying the blocks of seeds, but the birds aren’t coming.

L.L.Bean Boots

I caved. A pair of classic, 6″ L.L.Bean boots are on their way to my house. I took advantage of a 25% sale and clicked buy. I was obviously influenced by bloggers who love them (talking about Rox-Anne and Carly!), and while I would have preferred them in an all-black version, they have such a strong reputation (and following) that I’m hoping I’ll make use of them on my fall and winter walks, even though they’re a touch more “New England prep” than my usual style. I can’t believe how many L.L.Bean Boot buying guides are floating around the internet. Google it. It’s nuts!

Fashion: #WhiteCabanaStyle

For the past couple of years, I’ve been documenting some of my outfits on Instagram using #WhiteCabanaStyle. People seem to enjoy them, and it’s been amusing for me to look back at my outfits to see what I like or don’t like about them. What is easily noticeable as you scroll through the hundreds of outfits is that, regardless of season, black and white are my go-to colour options. Are you really surprised?

What do you think of fashion/style/outfit posts? Would you like to see more/less of #WhiteCabanaStyle on the blog (and Instagram)? Be honest. If it’s just-too-much-Jordana for your day, let me know!

The Friday Five: The White Suit

When the weather turns chilly, I find it really easy to wear black. Every. Darn. Day. But looking at “winter white fashion” on Pinterest is so inspiring. I think I need to make an effort to add creamy whites to my wardrobe this winter.

Trivia Thursday: The Flag Halyard Chair

Check out this chair. Pretty beautiful, eh?

Flag Halyard lounge chair

This is Hans Wegner’s Flag Halyard chair, and it dates back to 1950. 1950! The chair’s design is almost 70 years old, and it’s still going strong. Pretty fantastic, I’d say. Wegner, a renowned Danish furniture designer, designed this chair out of from metal, rope, and sheepskin as you can see. It adds interest and sculpture to any room.

Design: The White Cabin

I keep dreaming about owning a cottage. Ideally, it’ll be a full-season cottage so that I can spend cozy winter weekends there doing (just about) nothing. And would I paint my cottage-cabin white? You bet! I’m inspired by these beautiful exterior and interior designs.

Two for Tuesday: Shimmer and Shine

I know sequins and sparkles are generally reserved for New Year’s Eve, but I couldn’t wait that long to post these two-of-a-kind items. Aren’t they fun? And, not to worry, I’m sure more sequins will be coming to the blog in the months ahead! Who can resist them?
