i think i am more addicted to scoping out auction catalogues at Bukowskis than i am online window shopping. which is a good thing, because i can’t actually afford anything at bukowskis and therefore my bank balance is not at risk.
these are from their most recent auction entitled Eclectic – featuring plenty of erotica, including 19th century japanese ceramic dildos and photographs of nude fights. here are some of my favourite blog-safe pieces.
Marilyn Monroe in Vogue, 1962 by Bert Stern (sold for € 1 850)
Portrait of two girls by unknown artist
i habitually bookmark all the street style i love over at my tumblr, but here is a recap of my absolute favourites recently.
these jars made me laugh
things i’m liking. see my svpply for details.
this lovely bearded man (aka jeff guy) sent me and a few gals on twitter into a frenzy. lumberjackin’? check. faithful dog? check. rugged manliness? check. thanks for this photo, bob butler. thanks for being you, jeff guy.
old chum is officially my favourite tumblr of all time.
and, attention all south african readers: mememe johannesburg opens their doors on 1 april, more info here. love the model they used for the campaign…

anabela of fieldguided tweeted about the music video for kate bush’s hounds of love the other day, remarking on how rad her look was (the blazer, the hair, the lips) and if i could make it current. challenge accepted, anabela.
this is sort of contemporary take on kate’s whole country librarian look. so many girls are actually rocking this vibe these days, which is rad. i had to make the lipstick revlon – what kind of eighties girl wouldn’t have used revlon, right? you can’t really see her skirt or shoes in the video, but i think this is a pretty fair interpretation.
i will be taking a little break till next week.

… but may as well take this opportunity to ask your advice. my rss reader has gone from a handful of blogs to over 500 back to a handful and repeat many times over. at the moment it’s at a pretty satisfying medium, where i can catch up with my favourites with relative ease and the only folder that has the dreaded 1000+ unread items is my guilty stash of music blogs (an addiction, i know.)
but sometimes i feel like i’m missing out, and there are obviously a ton of sites i don’t even know about – let alone subscribe to. i’d love to know from you what your favourites are right now. both old staples and new discoveries are welcome. and not just blogs either – any kind of website that is tickling your fancy.
can we also come up with another term for “tickling your fancy” ?
see you next week.
ps: there is an interview with me in this month’s issue of PIG magazine. it’s in italian, so if you can understand it – yay! if not, google translate helps… but then i sound quite amusingly foreign. you can download the mag for free here.
