i have a sort of obsession with the midi-dress / skirt (if you follow me on pinterest you might have picked this up). it is just such a great length to me, so flattering and elegant and something that suits all body types. midi length dresses can take you from summer to winter and back again, you can wear them to formal events just by dressing up with some rad heels… i don’t know, maybe it’s just a personal taste but i love them. and i love seeing girls wear them.
Flower Safari is a group spring show that i watched grow as a seedling, as it were, from the mind of my friends Amy & Mariah. held at the new Side Street Studios in Woodstock, it features clothing by Take Care, jewellery by Dear Rae and art & products from talented people like Amy, Jessicah Pedersen, Nix Davies, Julia Merrett, Emalie Bingham, Kirsty Rielly, Elsabe Milandri and Thingking. The event was styled by Mariah, who created those beautiful flower chandeliers. the show will be running through November so make sure you go have a look and maybe buy some art.
man alive i’m so happy to present another awesome giveaway thanks to Of A Kind! since this is the third one i’m doing with those wonderful ladies we thought it would be nice to give you THREE THINGS to choose from.
there are a number of talented wedding photographer couples in Cape Town whose style of photography i can really get behind – focusing on important moments rather than most of the cheesy schtick that has been perpetuated by the wedding industry. three, namely: Deon & Irene of Modern Hearts, Travis & Maike of We Love Pictures, and Bruce & Rebecca of Love Made Visible.
jewellery is something that i love in theory, but never really wear. maybe i’ll sport a ring now and then, or a necklace if i’m feeling really flashy – but mostly i don’t really accessorise as much as i should. this past weekend i bought a new necklace from skermunkil which i love, and it got me browsing the internet for more rad pieces to potentially wear. or dream about wearing. please click on the images to be taken to the relevant designers.
south african designers Lalesso and Pichulik have joined forces to create a bag range that makes me want to do a little happy dance. Lalesso x Pichulik features 3 designs – a duffel, a purse and a foldover clutch – in a myriad of Lalesso fabrics, topped off with Pichulik’s signature ropes & accessories. very much a case of one of each, please.
looking through online shop Oysho feels like floating on a cloud made of bunnies and kittens. their socks section alone made me aaaaaaw too much for my own good, not to mention those ridiculously cute animal blankets. but Oysho isn’t all puppies and rainbows – they also have delicate underthings & wonderful beachwear at really reasonable prices.
i actually had a dream last night that i cut my hair into a pixie do after seeing these photos yesterday (the cut went horribly awry, by the way) so i felt like i had to share these this morning. Mais Oui Vintage is a Brisbane based vintage shop and this collection was photographed by Andrea Jankovic. thanks to Lincon Taft for the link.
i discovered Australian based food blog Eat This Food thanks to The Design Files, and immediately got caught up in the fantastic combination of fun graphics, great photography and amazingly tasty looking food (of course). The blog is run by three Tasmanian creatives who are now all based in Melbourne – Pat Breen does the cooking, Sean Fennesy takes the photos and designer Jess Lillico is responsible for the graphics. everything about Eat This Food is right up my alley – especially the handy downloadable PDFs. i hope these guys are paving their way to a recipe book, because i would snap it up in a second. please click on the images to be taken to the recipe – and see all of them here.
