fantasy outfit #5

fantasy outfit #5… total price: $8000 (R58,500) uuuum. yes okay, it’s mostly from net-a-porter.

man-o-lantern it’s been cold this weekend! just when i was babbling about it being so warm and un-winter like the cape decides to pull one of it’s classic rainy sessions. so this fantasy outfit is based around a fuck-off warm jacket. sometimes i feel a bit bad about shearling… but i eat lamb so who am i to talk? don’t hate me, vegetarians.

ps: perhaps one day i will look back and be amused at my choice of shoe, but i am quite taken with swedish hasbeens and any kind of wooden platform. oh well. pps: there’s a cup of coffee in there… yes there is.

spot the innuendos

these look like they’ve been taken out of an opening scene for a cheesy porno catalogue. also, notice the toilet seat frame hanging on the wall! all from retro space.

lauren: things i like right now

things i like right now by lauren of glossary

Hello Miss Moss Readers! Thanks for having me Di!

I love scribbling up wishlists. Here are ten things I’d love to get my paws on now!

  1. A return ticket to New York: Cliche’d perhaps but I want to experience all the movie-moments from hailing yellow cabs to eating giant pretzels in Central Park.
  2. Stamps from Nothing Elegant: I’m in love with this sweet range on Etsy.
  3. Diana Camera: I know every girl and her blog has one but I really want one too.
  4. Boater Hat: Pleeeease let me know if you see one in the shops!
  5. Mint Nailpolish: I keep seeing peppermint nails on the bloggers abroad and I’m utterly smitten with it too.
  6. A curling iron: I want to start experimenting with my hair more and this gizmo is just the ticket.
  7. Espadrilles: I hope they arrive in SA soon!
  8. 99 cones all round!
  9. Black Oxfords: I saw a pair like these a few months ago and totally regret not buying ’em.
  10. Picnic set for parties out of a basket!

I hope you enjoyed my wish-list and I’d love to hear what you’re wishing for too!

soon

it’s going to be spring soon! though our tricksy south african weather has been making everyone assume it’s spring already (this has probably been the mildest and most glorious winter in recent memory.) i bet we’re in for one more crazy cold front before the proper hot weather hits us though – remember when it snowed in august?

Things I’m loving = Local

Here are some goodies I’m loving by local designers, who never cease to amaze me with their beautiful creations. Buying local fills me with such a sense of pride, that not only am I supporting South African designers, but I’m helping to invest in the local economy. All the local designers I love and stock in my store, use great quality fabrics, leathers, cottons and finishes to create their ranges and I am loving green, grey and blue accent tones this Spring. I’m also mad about vintage and collect deer, swans and anything with hearts on them, so I’ve pandered to my whims and included some beautiful things from local designers with my collections in mind.

  1. Trip Bags – Handmade in False Bay.
  2. Liesel Trautman Porcelain Cups – By Liesel Trautman in Observatory.
  3. Locally made fabric pumps
  4. Skinny laMinx‘s new cushions – available at Beatnik Bazaar
  5. Brooches by Skermunkil (I wear mine everyday!) – available at Beatnik Bazaar
  6. Felt Swans and dolls by Gwen loves Harold
  7. Bunting
  8. Vintage plate wall art
  9. Their awesome sense of fashion (top right: The Sartorialist & bottom left: Mary B)
  10. Nook Eatery in Stellenbosch
