Cozy up, eh?

Brrrrrr it's cold up North.Wouldn't you love to cozy up under a Hudson Bay point blanket... or at least tote one with you throughout the day to bring warm thoughts? This bag by Rebecca Ray Design is made from the iconic Canadian vintage blankets and has over 40 options for the bridle rosette (I think I would choose the fox). Love love love!


Maybe I should have started this off by saying you could wear the blanket instead of tote it...Rachel Bilson in Smythe at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.


Luxe version... one side blanket other side coyote fur. I wish it came in faux.


The pattern is also known as the Glacier National Park Blanket by Pendleton (available here), as seen with Atlantic-Pacific last summer. You may have seen it at Urban Outfitters.

And if you're interested to learn more about the stripes...

  10. Love the blanket. But, I agree, unless it came in faux fur I would never buy it.

  12. As a Canadian, I still find it odd to see a Hudson's Bay blanket anywhere! I grew up with the Bay...and that stripe on everything.
