Jewels Sept

are you familiar with my Jewels posts? well sometimes i get overwhelmed with the wonderful array of new jewellery out there, and rather than dedicating a post to every single designer i compile a compendium of sorts instead. i’ve been numbering them in French (who KNOWS why) and this is…

A Painterly Spring

guys, following the fashion shows is exhausting. Spring 2017 is only in London now, which means Paris and Milan still have to come! i looked at (what felt like) hundreds of shows and realised I’d only scratched the surface of New York fashion week. so, instead of doing an exhaustive rundown…

Hats by Laura Apsit Livens

i can count the number of occasions i’ve worn a hat on maybe one hand. i just kind of feel like a fool when wearing one. do i look okay? is my hair sitting right? why does my forehead feel so sweaty? etc. but that doesn’t mean they don’t look…

Kate Miss

i thought i’d give you a little update on what the multitalented designer and thing-maker Kate Miss has been up to! a new jewellery collection and a bunch of prints, that’s what. and even though she doesn’t blog like she used to, her music mixes are still stellar.

Jujubunny

i had a rare few hours to myself this morning and so decided to go browse around the shops. and everywhere i went – h&m, Zara, Cotton On… i went straight to the kid’s section. i’ve lost almost all interest in clothes for myself (maybe cause i can only fit…

Crescioni Fall 2016

aaaaaaah, Crescioni. can you feel that? yes, it’s the smell of fresh leather and brass. Crescioni’s Fall 2016 collection is filled with these things, including all new handbags. better yet they now have an online shop, when previously you could only view their collections online. score! Crescioni handbags are an extension…

Bartaile C12: a versatile bag, and a giveaway!

Everything I can fit into my C12 backpack. so i was lucky enough to be sent a gift from an exciting new company Bartaile, their signature backpack the C12. the one reason i was keen on this bag was because it has a built-in padded laptop sleeve – and i have lugged my 15″ Macbook…

Nandi Naya

i discovered jewellery line Nandi Naya randomly while browsing one day, and judging by the name i wondered to myself if there was a South African link somewhere. turns out the designer behind the label is Hleziphansi Zita, and the line is named for her daughter, Nandi. Hleziphansi Zita was born and…

What would I buy from ASOS?

my husband was in London recently for work and i jumped at the chance to order a few things on ASOS. i hadn’t browsed there in so long because i gave up on shopping online internationally long ago – the customs duties! – and i found i was overwhelmed by what was available…

Caves Collect

a funny thing happens when you have a baby. besides the whole gaining weight and weird postpartum tummy deal, you just dress differently. well – i did. i can honestly say that for the first 10 weeks of his life i wore leggings, nursing tops and oversized checked shirts. that’s ALL. i…

Blue Naive

Linen

i’ve been coming across a lot of great linen wear lately, and while i don’t actually own anything made from linen myself it might be time to invest in some key pieces. strangely enough these are all coming out of Lithuania (must be a linen hotspot?). just be careful that you…

Loom + Field

Goodies No. 28

there are so many great things on Etsy these days, i find myself browsing the app when i am nursing at 2am… anyone else do weird things when they are up with their baby in the middle of the night? if i’m not browsing Etsy then i’m scrolling through Pinterest…

Caitlin She

Caitlin She

i was so surprised & delighted when i received an email from Caitlin Shearer introducing her eponymous clothing label Caitlin She. i have been following her illustrative work for years and years, before i even started the blog! Caitlin heralds from Australia and is an illustrator, seamstress, curator and clothing and textile designer… We’ve…

Seaworthy: Gravity

aah it’s always so wonderful for me to see new work from long favourite designers. Marisa Howard of Seaworthy has just added some sterling silver pieces to her latest collection, Gravity. i looooove those large hoop earrings. Sterling silver has a rich history, dating back to the 12th century. I’ve…
