the thrift collection

pippa and meg from durban emailed me about their new vintage source the thrift collection,

we’re in the business of scouring vintage and 2nd hand stores for pre-loved items that we lovingly repair, clean and re-button in the hopes of finding them new homes (in a way, we’re kind of like the fashion SPCA). All of our items are priced between R10 and R40 (if it’s a little more expensive than that, you know you’re getting something truly special). every month we will unveil a new collection – each with it’s own name – and for our market debut we will be featuring our peggy collection. where you can find once loved skirts, dresses, jackets, shirts, blouses, accessories, belts, bags and shoes. We have also added to our collection a range of lucky packets, full to the brim with goodies that will make you feel like a kid again.

they can be found every month at the I Heart Market from september onwards and online where they also take orders and requests. sounds very cool, if you’re in durban be sure to go check them out.

kate: things i like right now

kate is one of my best friends whom i met in high school. she is an aspiring bag designer – keep an eye out for this lady.

things i like right now by kate of mooi mooi

  1. Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner in sepia ink with ultra fine eyeliner brush – its super easy to apply and long wearing so I don’t end up looking like a raccoon at the end of a long day (or night).
  2. Collect necklaces – especially the bokkie :)
  3. Peonies – a bunch of these beauties is the easiest way to get into my good books ;)
  4. Narciso Rodriguez for her – thanks to Miss Moss for introducing me to this, its no. 1 on my Christmas wishlist.
  5. Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener – I love this product. Think YSL Touche Eclat, just more affordable.
  6. My grandfather’s Praktica Super TL camera.
  7. Smith’s Rosebud Salve – forget eight hour cream, this is a miracle in a tin.
  8. Greta Garbo inspired Dior ad campaign.
  9. Patterns in my coffee – I have become such a regular at my local Vida that the baristas make a game of creating new and interesting patterns in my double meia froth. Both the coffee and the photo are by a friend of mine, Nathalie. Too cute.
  10. Feminine, lingerie inspired, summer frocks.
  11. Donna Karan Double Zip Messenger Bag – wouldn’t mind it being a bit smaller though… guess i need make my own version ;)
  12. Vintage margazit brooch from my mom – priceless.
  13. Comfy flat shoes for long summer walks with my dogs.

i need to get myself some of that eyeliner and eye brightener, am a serious sufferer of panda eyes
