Sherbert

have been quietly obsessing over this colour scheme for a while. decided to call it sherbert. yes, i know the correct spelling is sherbet – but i pronounce it sherbert. and since i am making up a colour scheme i may as well make up a word, too. it’s somewhere…

Decorated Playlists

okay, it’s official, i have found my favourite website in the world. Simon Foster is a designer and former DJ who has rolled his love of design and music into the magically epic Decorated Playlists. i have already made my way through Run For Cover Part One and Part Two featuring cover songs…

Vintage Summer Snapshots

i’m really trying to psyche myself up for summer. if you follow my ramblings on twitter (or, of course, if you know me personally) you’ll know that i am not the hugest fan of this particular season. it’s the heat, you see. i think i might literally be allergic to…

These Things No.21

these things issue no. 21 my second guest post for hila: now & then. got a girl crush magazine launched this week – “photographs and interviews of ten ladies who we think are doing amazing things in our own backyards.” everything about this girl by the sf style. to be adored lookbook.…

Le Boudoir

Le Boudoir

i recently received a lovely email from Sandra Lemp, the designer behind lingerie collection Le Boudoir. Now – i’m not the kind of girl who indulges in fancy underthings (i’m more likely to hang about in grandpa pyjama pants than a negligee) and i’m also not one for very frilly, lacy,…

Miscellania

thank you all for your wonderful response to the Rewardrobe post! it made me feel a bit better about getting too “covety” around here (want want want / need need need). i suppose i wouldn’t actually spend diamond money on designer clothing… i’d probably pay my rent first. but i…

Rewardrobe

reassessing my wardrobe right now – in my head, that is. hypothetically. if i were to win the lottery or discovered a giant diamond in my garden… this is what i’d spend that money on. pieces row by row: agatha dress / annica dress / eva dress acne copy cap…

Bathing caps with faces

why not! speaking of bathing, it’s pretty scary that summer is around the corner. i have noticed the northern bloggers freaking out over their impending autumn and winter months – i would happily trade places with you! we have hardly had any rain, and it hasn’t been cold enough for…

Wayne White

i try not to re-post stories from mega-rad blogs like It’s Nice That because i figure everyone else reads them too (and if you don’t, you should) – but this was too good not to share and share again. Wayne White’s word paintings are exactly my cup of tea – milk + sugar…

These Things No.20

thought a these things is appropriate after such a long time away. 20 is a nice round number, too. vanessa jackman’s behind the scenes photos of MiH Jeans s/s 2012 lookbook endless summer – a new tote from fieldguided this illustration inspired by stella mccartney s/s 2011 by jiiakuann via…

Just a moment

still on holiday on this side of the world, but i have been keeping one eyeball on the internet – so thought i’d share some beautiful photos that have been crossing my path. normal posting to resume next week! – by rogier houwen – by nishe – by lauren rosenbaum -…

These Things No.19

thank you for the enthusiastic response to yesterday’s post – i will definitely be expanding on that idea in the near future (collages, fashion, art… can’t help myself really). BUT i’m going on holiday from today and will only be back to the internet world next week sometime – holiday…

Rosy Disposition
