The Obsession of the Week is Japandroids, a garage rock band from Vancouver British Colombia. Hearing their song “Young Hearts Spark Fire” is like a jolt to the chest. There debut album Post Nothing has quickly become one of my favorite albums of the year. They are currently touring, and you can check out their tour dates after the cut.

Ever since I bought that Marimekko dress in Vancouver a while back, I think I’ve become an addict! Whenever I need a hit, I check out the website, and now I’m riding the train of this Matin Shirt Dress.

God, I’m so hip with all this drug lingo, no?

There isn’t a Marimekko store in Los Angeles, so I was pretty psyched to see one right outside my hotel in Vancouver, where I’m on vacation this very second. It was the first sunny weekend the city has seen in a long while, and the fresh, bright prints that the Finnish company is known for kind of went with the weather.

I wanted lots and lots of stuff, but you can’t have everything, so I chose this:


It’s a good Spring/Summer dress what with the flowers and the light, breezy cut. Perfect for bbqs and nightime backyard parties, which is my general criteria for purchases this time of year.
