I have wanted to start featuring more Canadian designers and cool Etsy shops here on CR, and I've got a Canadian designer for you today. Jana Kalous is the designer behind the line Kaliyana, that has stores in Montreal, Toronto and here in Ottawa (on Sussex St.). I have walked by the store on Sussex numerous times but never ventured in. Now I am regretting not having taken a peek. The clothing is modern/avant-garde and caters to women sizes 6-22. Perfect for Jen during this time of a rapidly growing belly! The clothing is generally fairly wide and roomy, and drapey, sort of à la Rick Owens. I'm not a fan of their styling and the bolder colours but looking through their website at each piece, I am  really liking several pieces...and here are some of my favourites. (P.S. shop online @ shonmodern.com)

And check this out - the "anti-suit" - 3 pieces for only $389. I love it!

OMG! Thanks for this post. I love the geometry of the clothing. Love the jewelry! Love the hair!
