Oysho

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.

Eat This Food

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.

Something!

sometimes if i see a trend in things i like or bookmark i make a folder on my desktop called “something” and start saving up pictures… something is there… i like something about it… it is something or other… maybe it’s just a fancy mood board. whatever it is, it’s something!

Lorna Simpson

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.

“Lorna Simpson’s works explore the experience of African American women in contemporary society. Simpson’s imagery is culled from both original photographs and those she collects from eBay and flea markets. In order to make her subjects elusive or adaptable to any narrative, Simpson rarely depicts them from the front, and instead shows them from behind or with their faces and eyes obscured or omitted. Placing an emphasis on the social and political implications of African hairstyles and textures, her 1994 piece Wigs (Portfolio) presents an almost scientific study of hairpieces, aiming to underscore the wig as a tool of conformity and agent for physical transformation.”Art.Sy

Still Wearing the Pants

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.
