Stuff We Love

Coziness Essentials from Two Canadian Designers

Stuff We Love 08/28/2018

 

Eve Tobolka and Alynne Lavigne know a thing or two about keeping their spirits up once the days start getting shorter. Based in Toronto, the jewelry-designing BFFs are pros at leaning into cozy (but still creative!) vibes during long Canadian winters. Here’s Eve and Alynne on their eclectic short list of standbys, which help them recharge and stay motivated to make the mixed-metal chains, chunky wrist wraps, and mega earrings they’re known for.

 

THE OTHER KYLIE

“Who doesn’t love Kylie Minogue? Her music is so upbeat and original. It’s the best thing to put on when you’re having people over or just want to have a dance party at home.”—Eve

 

UNEXPECTED SNACKS AND DRINKS

“Great snacks are a key part of lounging for me. I especially love BBQ-flavored corn nuts. There’s this store in Canada called Bulk Barn where you can just scoop up whatever you want. Roaming the aisles there and having a drawer full of snacks is my form of relaxation. ”—Eve


Red wine and soda together is brilliant. Don't judge, do add ice and citrus!”—Alynne

WEIGHTY TEXTILES

“I’m all about the macramé and knitted blankets. I like to go to thrift stores and get the ones with the really weird patterns—I’m super drawn to all the colors. I have so many I had to stop collecting them, but I use them a lot so they wear out!”—Eve

 

CAMPY MOVIES

Flashdance as a concept is incredible, but it’s not actually that great as a movie. It’s a movie that was made for the time of Instagram—you can just take little snippets like the dancing or the restaurant scene, and they’re all iconic.  The outfits are also a really modern mix of tough workwear and more polished stuff like that great tuxedo. It was when really oversized outfits on petite women went mainstream, for better or worse.”—Eve

 

“I love an oversized grey sweatshirt, just like in the movie. Also, on a related note, I wouldn't push a cat off my lap!”—Alynne

 

WEEKEND GETAWAYS

“You can't beat a good staycation! A nice hike, good people watching, and lounging around is all you really need. I recently took a trip up to Scarborough Bluffs, which are beautiful and only a little outside Toronto, and stayed in a cute Airbnb.”—Alynne
