i absolutely love love love the Gold Head series by American artist Lorna Simpson – which are actually all for sale over at Art.Sy. the pieces are made using ink and embossing powder on paper. so simple & beautiful.
i abandoned tumblr a fair few months ago because i simply could not keep up with so many bookmarking sites (and it feels like there are new ones popping up every day, which is pretty scary). since then i’ve been using Pinterest exclusively, but i really missed Wearing the Pants (which is archived for your pleasure) – so i started a new board with the help of style mavens Cath and Mariah. here are some recent favourite Wearing the Pants moments.
Jennifer of jewellery line A Merry Mishap just shared the beautiful lookbook for her Fall 2012 collection. here are some of my favourite shots (though it was tough to choose out of all 60 pages – what a treat). i also LOVE the look of those necklaces draped over the hand shaped jewellery holder. you can shop her line here.
can you believe the last these things post i did was way back in August? it always feels like things starts to fast forward around this time of year – the holiday season is almost upon us, people are already planning where they’re going to be for christmas, and tomorrow you’re going to wake up on new years day wondering what happened to 2012. it’s as if october and november don’t even exist in the bigger scheme of things. well let’s pause for a second and look at some cool things from the past while.

i’ve been promising the Cape Town City Guide for ages now – to people on twitter, via email, on facebook… you guys have been hounding me, i tells ya. but no one wanted it finished more than i did, and i’m so excited to share it with you. in fact, it’s not even finished yet! it will continue to grow and expand… as cities themselves tend to do.
photographer Kate Berry recently snapped the lovely Melbourne home of creative couple Kristy & Marky. Marky is a musician, currently touring with his band Monnone Alone, and Kristy is the talented lady behind fashion label Kuwaii. i just had to include scenes from her cool little shop (also photographed by Kate) and some of my favourite pieces from her latest collection Landscape.
Mallory shared the latest Samantha Pleet spring collection over on Gems yesterday, and it pretty much nails what i’d love my wardrobe to look like this summer – especially those floral numbers. the one thing that has been quite difficult for me to find, in south africa at least, is the perfect skirt length… which in my mind sits somewhere just between the knee at the calf, and hangs in that perfectly soft way that a summer skirt you’ve worn in for many seasons tends to do.
