I need some Spring in my step

Slippery slush. Wind that bites. Skin that never shines. Dark mornings. Darker evenings. Hot beverages. Burnt tongue. Resolutions hanging frozen on a clothes-line. HEY sun, where you at?

Around this time of year, like clockwork I prematurely yearn for Springtime.

The good news is that the groundhog came up last week, which means we are that much closer to trench coats and silk blouses. I'm ready to retire my puffy outerwear for something a little more breezy.

Isn't that what we all need right now, just a little bit of air?

If the above ads don't have you daydreaming of lighter layers yet, check out the latest video for the fantastic Spring 2011 collection by Canadian designer Marika Brose. It's been getting quite the recognition across the web, so I thought I'd share it.

The video was created by Cory (as you may remember him from my cafe review adventures). I always like to draw attention to the creative people behind the camera. It's easy to get entranced and remember a beautiful subject or beautiful clothes but rarely do people stop to ask who created the vision.

Cory and I will soon be working on a video for Not A Model, so stay tuned!!! I may be apprehensive about the whole thing, but I know I'm in good hands. As for the video below, I suddenly have the urge to throw on a white feather dress and walk down the Champs-Elysées. Oui?

If you liked that, check out Cory's other motion films here. So non-models, I ask what are you most excited about for Spring?


  1. great post! I too yearn for spring! The display in Tommy in the 'dale made me beg for spring to come and i almost went in and bought truckloads of bright clothing and light jean jackets. only one month(ish) til march goes out like a lamb!! (cross fingers)

  3. I LOVE floral print. Great job Dipaq!
