gap spring summer 2011

hey, GAP. i hate that you guys didn’t have any of this rad stuff when i was in paris. you suck. okay no, you don’t. but please come to south africa – we’re having spring slash summer right now! i could really do with all of this.

i’m vaguely aware that in the US gap isn’t considered the most stylish of brands (correct me if i’m wrong), but when i lived in london i absolutely loved it, and was in and out of there all the time (with shopping bags, of course.) do the european stores have different desgners / stock, i wonder?

vintage cowgirls

it’s kind of a running joke amongst my friends that i dislike dress up parties. don’t know why, maybe because people can’t seem to throw parties without some kind of theme attached, no matter how lame (wear a funny hat!) or maybe it’s because we don’t celebrate halloween in south africa & so didn’t grow up with that ritual of finding a costume every year.

either way, i do make exception for (a) vintage / anything mad men related (that’s a given) and (b) cowboys / western. the fact is, i wouldn’t mind if people dressed in western gear all the time. it’s probably because i find cowboys ridiculously attractive. imagine don draper dressed as a cowboy! doubley attractive heart attack right there.

this post completely stemmed from that rad cowboy post over at the selvedge yard, by the way.
