Cities in Dust

Cities in Dust is a jewellery label by designer Meghan Lorenz, whose story begins where many designers do – she couldn’t find the kind of jewellery she wanted to wear, so she began making her own. you can see her work at her website, and shop her range on etsy. this is the lookbook for the new Cities in Dust FW 13 range, photographed by Julia Stotz.

NÉO GÉO

Amélie & Marie of Lyon based milleneufcentquatrevingtquatre just sent me a preview of their new SS14 collection NÉO GÉO, which they describe as, “a study on the landscape, from the Hawaiian shirt to Google Earth view. Inspired by passing landscape through the car window on the highway of the sun.” it will be available in January (which seems like a long while away, but is going to creep up on us in a second.) you can check out their website to see their beautiful previous collections.

Pichulik SS14

One of my FAVOURITE creative duos, photographer Alix-Rose Cowie and stylist slash advertising whizz gal slash most fashionable girl in Cape Town Kate Desmarais have created a beautiful lookbook for local jewellery range Pichulik. I’m blogging about this from NYC, because I couldn’t wait, but also because even though I am surrounded by cool shit over here – I’m really, REALLY proud of what’s going on back home. I am reminded of that every day as we walk the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan.

necklaces – Pichulik, photographer – Alix-Rose Cowie, stylist – Kate Desmarais, location – Chandler House. please see Kate’s blog for all the clothing credits.

ps: I am blogging from my iPad, which – as it turns out – is not as easy as I thought it would be. this post may or may not have taken me the better part of an hour.

NYC

NYC

hello! so we are in NYC and it is amazing. I wasn’t planning on checking in while we’re on our honeymoon (sacrilege) – but I see there have been some technical difficulties with images in the blog posts I scheduled. I’m sorry about that, and unfortunately I do not have my computer with me so it can’t be fixed. that means no new posts until we are back in Cape Town.

I’ll leave you with this pic I took at Top of the Rock until we get back. you can also follow all my updates on Instagram.

Food Studio

Food Studio is a Norwegian collective of food professionals, designers and photographers who love, well, food. and natural, Nordic food at that. i first came upon their beautiful design work done by Oslo based studio Bielke + Yang, and then delved a bit into what makes Food Studio tick. they host interesting events, like this one that marries food + music, and set out to challenge the daily way we think about and work with food.

Food Studio is about sharing stories of people that believe in good and honest food. With good and honest food we mean food that both tastes good, has a positive impact on our health, food that´s responsibly produced, food that´s a result of plants and animals being treated well, and food that inspires us!

Best Day Ever

i thought i had it all figured out. i’d schedule a ton of posts, get married, go on honeymoon and just not look at the internet for 3 weeks or something. of course that did not happen. the wedding weekend took over and i just let go. we got together with our family and friends on a rustic fruit farm about 2 hours away from home, set up the reception (with the help of my amazing bridesmaids) and the rest just unfolded… exceeding every expectation we could have ever had. it was the best day ever.

we are bursting. bursting with happiness and love and just being on a hiiiiigh. an incredible high. if you follow me on instagram you would have seen some pics by now, but here are two more (thanks to our friend Joel). i will share more – and all the details – when we get back from our trip & receive the photos from our amazing photographers. until then we’ll be eating some NYC pizza, because now i don’t have to fit into the dress anymore. welcome back to the family, carbs.

PS: got any NYC recommendations for us? please share in the comments.
