Holiday Wishlist: Taylor’s Picks

I’ll start off Robber’s annual Holiday Wishlist FIRST because I would like to give my friends/fam plenty of time to decide who is going to get me what (jkjkjkjk).  We’ll be posting weekly Gift Guides and our Holiday Wishlists to help inspire you to become your ultimate gift-giving self.

First up, is the best Shetland Basic Crew Redwood jumper by MHL, $245 $185. How cozy is this sweater? So cozy. Sometimes I try it on and dream one day (ie: Dec 25) that I’ll never have to take it off….
Image
Sometimes when our sweaters are folded, it’s easy to overlook them! But really, they would make the best gift! Who doesn’t want a woolen hug for the holidays?

And is there any better feeling than layering a beautiful silk blouse under a wool sweater? No. So please welcome the Samantha Pleet Silk Trench blouse in Black, $369 $280. (Also the answer is actually YES, there IS a better feeling and that’s making someone’s Christmas dreams/wishlist come true…)
Image
Samantha Pleet balances sophistication (black, silk, a beautiful drape) with unexpected details, such as “cape-like-panels” that make this blouse truly unique and lovely.

I’m not a super fancy lady, but this delicate, long Laura Lombardi necklace would add just enough femininity to my daily boyish ensembles. Or yours. But hopefully mine. Lunette necklace, $70.

Remember last winter? Or lack-there-of? Forget it. This year is going to hit, and hit HARD (obviously I know this because of my strong ties with the Farmer’s Almanac Weather..people). Thirty minute bike commute to work every morning/night? Ten bajillion puppy pee breaks/walks in a day? I can’t fake it anymore you guys, I need a parka. Filippa K’s Fay Parka, $539, $405 fits the bill. It’s black, slim, and functional. It’s made for a Canadian winter without screaming “HEY I’M A PARKA!!”. It’s more like “Hey buddy, you look chilly! Why don’t you throw me on and we’ll go grab coffee, my treat!”
Image

I will conclude with the ultimate stocking stuffer! Apartamento’s Issue #10 (fifth anniversary edition). Reading through this in my new super cozy MHL sweater, drinking (all of the) eggnog, eating (all of the) shortbread cookies.. can’t you picture it? But why picture it when you can make it happen..
Image
(Apartamento is a gift sure to please those nearest and dearest to you – we also have Issues #4, 5, 8, and 9!)

Happy holidays to you and yours!

Who’s That Girl? Carol vs. Beth

What’s this, a new blog feature?? YEP! Every week Amil Niazi styles the Robber mannequins and then takes you on a sartorial spirit quest, finding the stories buried in the silk and wool. Each week, check out her modern fairytales and then vote for your favourite!

Meet Carol. Yeah, Carol. And before you’re all, “Amil, you’re nuts, Carols are just Patricia Heaton characters or HR ladies at my work. They aren’t real” – relax. This is Carol’s year. Does it get a bit chilly at the library where Carol works? Yes. Does she respond by draping a sloppy piece of wool around her tiny shoulders? No. Carol is that tempest in a teacup you never saw coming. Carol gets it done. She outdrank you last night and she’ll outwork you today. She might look uptight but her dick jokes make her boyfriend blush.

Channel your inner Carol in this Zea dress by Wood Wood ($365), Steven Alan Azteca cardigan ($289), and Laura Lombardi Marion necklace ($95).

Spirit Animal: Joyce Carol Oates
Power Song: Joni Mitchell’s Carey

Let’s be real, you envy this girl, but you don’t really like her. No one is that sweet. No one’s hair is really that shiny. Ugh is she eating leftover quail for lunch? What is she?! She’s a Beth, you guys and she’s the woman you want to wake up as after another lazy day where you bought new underwear instead of doing laundry. Bring a little Beth into your life and your cuticles will shine. Bring a lot of Beth into your life and boom! promotion. Not too much Beth though or you’ll be telling people how to raise their kids and ask them if they really need another glass of Pinot.

Add just enough Beth with this Rittenhouse silk backwards shirt ($329), Sessun Albertus pants ($175), and Iacoli & McAllister copper necklace ($110).

Spirit Animal: Ayn Rand’s tailor
Power song: The Pastels – I’m Alright With You

So which mannequin won you over this week, Carol or Beth? Scroll down for the poll!
