Mountain Air fashion as seen on TV

When it’s cold and gloomy out, nothing beats staying in and watching a little TV. What could be a better, easier way to sit back and relax and stock up on fashion inspiration? Not only can we confidently say now that peplums are very, very in, but we’ve spotted some specific Mountain Air styles on the small screen!

Emily Deschanel is wearing not one, but two Love Heals necklaces in this early Bones episode. A simple pendant on a shorter quartz or labradorite chain helps fill in the gap in the long pearl chain, which she has decorated with three medium-sized pendants. Build this necklace with the Be Creative line by Love Heals, as it’s soon to be discontinued. In the mean time, we’ll keep an eye out for Emily in their stunning new designs.

The CW is one of the most fashionable networks out there, and Arrow’s Emily Bett Rickards  as the character Felicity certainly looks smart wearing a red version of this layered lavand cardigan. Mountain Air’s own Molly agrees that this classy little staple works great with a pencil skirt, and you don’t have to be an IT whiz working with a superhero to look fabulous in it.

 

 

 

 

 

Press sweater in Orphan Black, season 1 episode 8

Orphan Black is one of the hottest things to come out of Canada in a long time, so it’s

great to see homegrown fashion alongside the heaps of homegrown talent in this hit drama about clones. Evelyn Brochu as the character Delphine wears this cozy Canadian-designed Press sweater. Her red skirt does wonders to bring out the shades in the cardigan. Our version has more of a purple and less of red undertones because each sweater is unique–just like the clones. The sweater is also reversible back to front, so you can wear the V in the front like Delphine or the back like our mannequin.

Seen something of ours on TV? Let us know! Better yet, channel your inner starlet and come on in and try some of these pieces (and many more new arrivals in store). In the mean time, we’ve got some more TV to catch up on…

Catch free jewellery

The days get shorter, the mornings get colder, and it’s only a matter of time before the radio starts playing Christmas music. Now that we’re well into fall, the last thing you need is to be wrestling with a scarf or sweater thread caught in the clasp of your necklace when you dip in to your favourite cafe for something pumpkin (or gingerbread?) flavoured. Pretty sweaters and scarves are one of the best things about winter (skiing being, in the opinion of a good Jasperite, The Best Thing), but it’s no fun to give up wearing jewellery around them because you risk of tangling and tearing them on the clasps. That’s why we’ve rounded up a selection of catch free necklaces to slip on with your knit garments that won’t cause trouble.

sparkly chains and bead necklaces

Local jewellery maker Suzy Wilgosh of Beads by Gosh has created a number of long necklaces for us that simply don’t have clasps. Loop them around twice for a shorter necklace look, or let them peek out from under your scarf. The bonus is you don’t need to choose between a scarf and a necklace, but can layer your accessories.

Beads by Gosh also uses alternative clasps, which still lets you do them up behind your neck, but won’t catch on clothing.

Love Heals, the California company that plants a tree for every design sold, also offers a variety of catch-free clasp necklaces. Instead of sharp hooks, these eyelet-like clasps are pretty to look at AND play nicely with knits.

The designs are white bronze on leather cords, or waxed linen braided with genuine semi-precious stones and pearls. These chains are part of the Be Creative line, which invites you to build your own charm necklace from a number of unique designs. The Be Creative line is soon to be discontinued, so if you have some charms and need a chain, or vice versa, now’s a good time to pick them up because our supplies will be dwindling. We will still be carrying Love Heals, including these catch-free clasps designs, but they will come without the hassle (or joy) of composing the necklace yourself.
