Beautiful Things: Vintage Brooches and Spring Trinkets

Last night the LCBO hosted a lovely event at the Carlu with special guest Janie Bryant (costume designer of Mad Men). I didn't indulge in the retro-inspired cocktails (ah the cleanse) but I did take in the retro fashion displayed in the centre of the room. The dresses were gorg but it was the brooches that really caught my eye.

Yesterday I got a sneak peak into what's to come to Indigo this spring. Luxurious soaps, pretty trinkets and, of course, interesting reads. Can't wait to start Left Neglected by Lisa Genova.
