lovely lily

in addition to the beautiful pieces that have come in recently from sunja, chulo pony, dace, preloved and others, last week we received our first few fall styles from lily & jae out of vancouver. lily & jae is designed by jude feller, one of our favorite gals to talk shop with over a sandwich and a beer. she's always so on top of her vision for the season and creates strong, playful pieces that are really easy to wear and to love for years to come. this season the rosedale raincoat is a real favorite here at nokomis, perfect for days like today where, though it's not quite high-summer anymore, the leaves are still green, there's still lots of time to play outside and it's just starting to drizzle a misty little drizzle in the mornings.

rosedale raincoat for 245.

kennedy longsleeve for 75.

grand dress for 225.

sunny sunja

just today we received our first shipment of sunja link for fall. sunja is one of my very favorite designers. i adore the graceful simplicity of her clothing. she's a master at blending trend with classic styling with grandmother-type delights. i ordered both of these styles and am so very excited for the weather to drop to 14 degrees tomorrow (as environment canada says it will) so that i can pull out these new fall beauties. hurrah canadian winter (heh heh, kidding, never come again, please).

we're looking to fill 1 to 2 part-time positions here at the store, so if you're interested you should stop by and drop off your resume and cover letter. it's a retail position, so you need to be outgoing and enjoy talking to people. and it's best if you love clothes. canadian ones. what else? hmmm. reading books is good, so are a few basic math skills. if you have any questions, email me at

tara, our store manager, will be holding interviews at the end of next week, so try and get those resumes to us before that!

patio par-tay!

Well we should've posted about this before the event happened I guess but as always we found ourselves sidetracked, some of us weren't even in town and, let's be honest, we were a bit nervous. In case you missed it here are some photos Laurel took yesterday at Latitude 53's summer patio series in which Jessica and I, on behalf of Nokomis, hosted the evening and DJed. Ahem, or at least set up playlists on our i-pods and plugged them into the speakers (cause that's what real DJs do, right?) Lucky for us it was a gorgeous evening and some of our favorite folks came out.
Thanks to everyone who was there and make sure to stop by another of Latitude's patio parties which are held every Thursday between 4:30 and 8:30pm through August 14th.
