Kate: Things I like right now

i wasn’t sure how to write this introduction about kate without sounding like a fan-girl nut job. i’ve been reading for me, for you for as long as i have been reading blogs (and chances are you do too.) hers was one of the first to go into my reader…

A Forest

i went for a long walk in the forest this past weekend – one of my favourite ways to unwind. the only thing i will miss about summer is that the days are longer which allows for walks after work before the sun sets. then again, there are not many…

Master Collagist

i have told you about my friend amy before (see her things i like right now to spruce your memory.)  i have dubbed her Master Collagist. since our first year together in university 9 odd years ago now, amz has made books full of collages to inspire her. people actually stole…

donald glover

you probably know donald glover as the ever amusing troy barnes on community… which is where i admittedly got to know about him too. what i didn’t know was that he is a multi-talented individual who also does stand up comedy, makes music under the name childish gambino and writes comedy…

Things for a friday

i saw this on tara-lynn’s tumblr, and it has almost 50,000 reblogs so you may or may not have seen it already – but i really love it. you see these kind of things all the time, but i enjoyed the straight to the point + non-fussiness of this one.…

Fall vs Spring

when i was browsing through the latest spring modern sale at bukowskis (they really bring me endless amounts of joy, that auction house) i was quite taken by all the beautiful flower still life pieces. i thought back to how some of my favourite collections from the autumn 2011 shows…

the west is dead

have died and gone to bearded, manly, lumberjackin’ and nice fittin’ on the rear denim heaven thanks to the west is dead fall 2011 lookbook. i would also wear all these things myself, though – especially those colourful denims. seen via the bearded (also known as one of the best tumblrs…

Ford Wheeler is my hero

i hope you have seen the amazing amazing ny times feature on margaret howell – as it was deservedly reblogged all over the place recently. while i was over there spying on margaret for the millionth time, i decided to have a browse through some of their other style features…

Closet visit

if you haven’t discovered closet visit by jeana sohn yet, i suggest you mosey on over there and have a browse. all photographs by jeana sohn

Potted

budget. i hate that word. my financial methodology is more along the lines of “try to be sensible and then hope for the best.” i’m not a planner by any means. i don’t, for instance,  make lists when i go to the grocery store (that’s why all those tins of stuffed…

The Bootstrap Project

i received a lovely email from maxine telling me about the bootstrap project – an organization she founded after travelling through swaziland in the summer of 2009, where she was inspired by artisan thembekile tsabedre’s hand crafted wooden platters (which are now sold out on their website.) the bootstrap project’s…

The new girls

have recently been introduced to two new personal style blogs that have gone straight into my reader. milk teeths that was recommended to me by kate, as well as the other emily recently featured by mallory. this is milk teeths aka ashley (who also sells vintage on etsy by the way) and…
