The Cowgirl Way

i love anything to do with cowgirls, so it was a treat looking through this recent New York Times feature about cowgirls of today who grow up in the ranch country of the Texas Panhandle. some of these girls appear quite tough (and i bet they are!) but then you…

12 hrs

i really love the idea behind 12 hrs, a new travel site launched by The Locals photographer Søren Jepsen and writer Anna Peuckert. much like my own city guide to Cape Town, they aim to give you tips “that aren’t about money, but about great discoveries from all around the world.” i wish i…

TEN & Co.

you’ll remember the beautiful lookbook from shoemakers TEN & Co. that i shared last year. well, they have gone in a completely different direction to showcase their Spring 2013 collection! showing off their beautiful handmade shoes in sumptuous table settings of food & drink, reminiscent of the still life paintings from Dutch golden age…

8 Homes

Simone & Rhys Haag’s home in Melbourne is one of the nicest & most inspiring i’ve seen in a while: Aerin Lauder’s house in Aspen (profiled by Vogue of course, of course): a beautiful renovation of an apartment by AR architects, i particularly like the yellow details (and those floors):…

The Socialite Family

consider The Socialite Family a French version of FvF – except focusing on families, of course. founder Constance Gennari started the website to share her true passion: “observing interior design through the eyes of a family, whether in Paris, New York or anywhere else in the world.” Traditional values, more particularly, family values are becoming…

niko and…

thanks to Marize for introducing me to niko and … another cool looking Japanese mail order fashion company that (a) i can’t understand and (b) will probably never actually order from. well, like many things on the internet i shall just sit back and admire. especially their cute 30 days coordinate project (they are…

Miss Moss // Kruger Trip

Kruger Park

i’m so excited to share these photos of our trip to the bush! a lot of what we saw couldn’t be captured on film – the animals are simply too fast for you sometimes, and most of the time they’re too far away to get a great shot – unless…

Good Guys

Good Guys Don’t Wear Leather is a vegan shoe brand from Parisian designer Marion Hanania. the shoes contain no animal by-products, and the design is influenced by shapes, styles and looks from bygone times. i love those sandals (even though they’re actually for guys) and of course cannot resist a…

Lorde

Lorde

in the past week i’ve received two emails telling me about 16 year old New Zealand singer Lorde (thanks Holly and Sarah). this girl is good. and the more i listened to her music the more i thought, damn what was i doing at 16? i was making mixtapes, not…

Carolyn Kennedy's dress by Narciso Rodriguez

The Dress

just like many women i’ve always had an idea of what kind of wedding dress i’d want to wear. if at any point in the last decade you had to ask me on the spot i’d probably reference Carolyn Kennedy on her wedding day (her dress was designed by Narciso…

Saugatuck Summer Art School

when i was compiling yesterday’s post about art appreciation i came upon these photos taken by Wallace Kirkland for Life magazine. the photo essay shows scenes from a summer art school in 1948, and after a bit of googling i discovered that the school in question still exists! OxBow is…

Art Appreciation

i have been wanting to do this post for years (not an exaggeration!). every time i came across one of these pictures of people appreciating art, as it were, i would bookmark it and put the idea into my memory bank – but eventually i had close to 10,000 favourites…
