when i first saw the new FW15 collection by Electric Feathers i thought to myself, “i need a legit reason to wear that gold lamé dress right now.” but actually, you know what, you should be able to wear gold lamé whenever you like. in fact, why not go full jumpsuit while you’re at it. that rope dress is also something else.
you won’t believe how many new jewellery collections were released in the past week, so i thought it was an incredibly appropriate moment to do another Jewels compilation. this is a mixed bag of treats – so i’m sure there is something you would like. also: great gift ideas. also, also: ear cuffs are still in. check out more favourite jewellery here.
Californian jewellery line Crescioni has a new Spring collection on the block, and i gotta say i love the big chunky pieces – especially all the brass earrings. women need to wear more jewellery at the beach, huh? i feel like this is a very cool department we’re not tapping. swimwear by Nu Swim, clothes from Passenger. photography by Andrew Lee.
ABOVE: Life Lessons pins
have you guys noticed that enamel pins have become a thing? recently i’ve seen so many rad ones popping up all around the place, and people rocking them in my Instagram feed. and because they’re mostly being made by talented illustrators and designers they’re all super rad. here are some nice ones i found that you can buy online, if you feel like jazzing up your lapel (or whatever). you can just click on some of the images to be taken directly to the shop!
today is “Spring Day” in South Africa – even though our spring equinox is actually on 23 September (my birthday! coincidence? maybe.) i suppose people around here are just too excited to push winter right out of the way. and conversely people on the other side of the world people are quite ready to usher in autumn. Canadian designer Noémie Vaillancourt is one of those people, having just released her FW15 collection for her label Noemiah.
so, Elizabeth Suzann has turned into a bit of a cult label since i first blogged about her way back in 2013. that’s because Elizabeth is a bit of a genius. her collections just get better and better – i think she might have reached peak awesomeness with FW15. i truly envy those of you going into cooler months, and if you get the chance to wear one of her cosy looking creations i envy you even more.
i have been following Kate Miss online, in some form, since forever ever. back in the day i got to know her through her old blog For Me, For You and she felt like a kindred spirit in a sea of lifestyle blogs – both of our day jobs are as graphic designers, we share similar taste in fashion and music, and we even planned our weddings and got married a month apart. also, i’m sure she gets just as many ‘Kate Moss’ jokes as i get ‘Diana Ross’ jokes.
hey guys! it’s been quiet here for a couple of days because i actually took the seemingly monumental task of moving the blog to a new host. i’ve been putting this off for years because i thought it would be the biggest drag in the world to do (moving 6 years worth of content is quite a thing) – but my new hosts made the process so easy. i’m thrilled. and, hopefully, everything is working fine around here! let me know if you pick up any bugs. *ladybird emoji*
