Top 10 Loves


How much do I love A.D.F.M? If you missed the memo, Canada’s coolest independently curated boutique is one of the hottest concepts out there right now. Their unique blend of products – across art, design, fashion, and music – provides a perfect palette of gift-giving options for you this Valentine’s Day (or just because). I’m extra enticed by the fact they only stock one piece in each size of their clothing – meaning the chances of you strolling down the streets of Toronto and running into a gal with the same striped blouse are pretty slim to none. Anyway today I thought it’d be fun to traverse their stock and pick out ten awesome finds for V-day and beyond.

Sidenote – it’s probably extra important to point out that right now there is a sick fall clearance going on at A.D.F.M. Some items are up to 75% off, plus there’s a special pre-Valentine’s sale going down, meaning you’ll see savings of another 20% off fall gear. So with that in mind, I’ve included the sale prices here + the regular prices so you can budget and shop accordingly.

Pantone: The 20th Century In Color Book – $35.99 (Reg: $45.00)
Designer or not, anyone would love to have this stylish coffee table book in their home that matches a century’s worth of trends to Pantone’s legendary palette of colours.

Charlie Leather Card Holder in Tan by Herschel – $29.99
Wallets are practically passe. If your guy wants to slim down his pocket profile, give him a durable leather card holder to keep his plastic in check for your next night out together.

DÜLLER 36 Colors Pencils – $45.99 (Reg: $60)
Ideal for the budding or experienced artisan alike, these pretty pencils capture every shade of the colour spectrum.


Limited Edition Stop! In The Name Of Love Print – $52.99 (Reg: $69)
Somehow this manages to be both a throwback to 70’s motown and 21st century stark, minimalist design. Proof you can have it both ways. 

Contrast Two-Tone Trench Coat – $215
Give her a sign of spring with this stunning two-tone layered trench coat, which is currently available for pre-order with a guaranteed 20% off!

P-Rap Print by Pop Chart Lab – $16.99 (Reg: $25)
If his second great love after you is rap music, he’ll flip for this colourful print packed with over 280 superstar sobriquets.

Cassis Noir Candle by Baxter of California – $45
Who says candles need to be cheesy? Baxter of California has three sumptuous scented candles – Cassis, Jasmin, Tuber – with rich floral tones like gardenia, camellia, and fir encased in sleek, soy-based black wax. With 70 hours of burn time you won’t be lacking in a soft glow for many months to come.

Bruce Shoes in Brown Speckle by Clae – $55 (Reg: $80)
These fresh kicks mesh brown wool and caramel leather for a stylish weekend look you won’t be embarrassed to be seen with.

Pod Shaker w/ Pour Nozzle by Menu – $18.99 (Reg $28)
Enjoy some crusty bread with gourmet oil and vinegar this Valentine’s Day, and keep your liquid gold preserved well after the occasion. These handy pods have a special film on them to keep the sun out and the flavour in.

Red Patent Silver Motor Chain Wrap Watch – $61 (Reg: $115)
Pay a more traditional ode to St. Valentine with this red-hot wrap watch that’ll set her pulse on fire.

There you have it! Just scratching the surface with ten fabulous ideas from A.D.F.M. for any gift-giving occasions you’ve got in the next little bit. If you live in Vancouver of course, you can pick up your parcels in person – but if something catches your eye and you NEED to have it by V-Day, they’ve also got some great expedited shipping options. Alternatively you can also pre-order anything from the new spring line at the ‘mo and score a 20% discount + guarantee your size. Smart!

Now hear this: I’ve also got a $50 gift card to give away to one lucky winner that’s looking to ramp up their style factor this spring. All you gotta do to enter is:

1) Leave a comment below until midnight on February 24th, 2012 and tell me what it is you’d spend your winnings on at the A.D.F.M store. You can obviously pick anything I pilfered for this post, but I recommend taking a browse and selecting your most favourite piece.

2) Entries are limited to one per person / per email address (or more if you score bonus entries). A random draw will be conducted on or around February 25th to select the winner, who will have 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen in their place.

3) Entries are limited to Canadians that have reached the age of majority in their province. Quebec is not eligible to participate in this promotion.

4) Bonus Entry Time: Two chances to win bigger here. If you like the store on Facebook or follow them on Twitter, you’ll score yourself extra entries. Just drop your FB name & Twitter handle in the comments below so I can validate you’ve done as you’ve said.
