Proenza Schouler's killer autumn collection is hitting stores now, and I am still in love with it as much as when I first saw it on the runway. After choking on my own drool at the pre-sale prices on Moda Operandi ($3,000 sweater anyone?) I knew that as beautiful as it was, owning anything from that collection was not a reality I am living in.

Some lower priced variations have hit La Garconne, but they are still quite the investment. I'm really into that sweatshirt with the embroidered birds. I think it (or something similar) would look great with the Isabel Marant skirt I already have in my wardrobe from a few seasons ago to create a similar silhouette.

Being the huge Harry Potter fan that I am, I am in love with the phoenix embroidery on that sweater.
And since you're a fellow Vancouverite, do you know a good cobbler?

LL- I go to The Quick Cobbler, but I've heard that http://www.bothfeet.ca/ on Main St. is really good too.
