Hey Dot & Lil nation! Wondering what's going on around here? Lots! I'm in New York City again, first of all, so you can expect yummy food and design posts again soon like the ones from my August trip here and here. I am staying right near Washington Square Park and am ready to be out of the studio for a few days of meetings, inspiration hunting, and supplies sourcing. In fact, after a slightly yucky flight I found myself literally smiling my way through the streets of New York this afternoon, to the delight of charming doormen and subway attendants everywhere--beautiful cold, sunny winter day!

Also, the dates are set for our new collection! We'll be having our VIP press event on Thursday, February 21st. The last one (our Paris party) was such a lovely time! And, new and exciting--we'll be having a Toronto press launch this time, too, on February 27th. So if you're a Montreal or Toronto journalist or blogger, you can contact us for an invite. The collection will launch online to all of you lovely people on the day of the Toronto launch, Wednesday February 27th. In the meantime, head over to the shop to scoop up any of the seasonal editions that will be leaving us when the new collection gets here.

Any guesses as to what the new collection will hold? I've been dropping Instagram and Twitter hints like crazy! Maybe we should have a guess-the-new-collection contest?
