Coyote Negro: Serie No. 2

in the past few years i have only worn gold or bronze jewellery, i don’t know why – i just went off silver after many years of wearing it. now, i feel like i may be swinging back to the lighter side… and no one can convince me more than…

Lauren Tamaki

Lauren Tamaki Fashion Drawings

i’m at the stage now where i’d much rather look at people’s interpretations of the fashion shows than at the actual fashion shows themselves. that’s why i love these drawings by illustrator Lauren Tamaki, who lives and works in Brooklyn. incidentally Lauren’s illustration also accompanied one of my favourite recent articles in the…

Bobo Choses

Bobo Choses: Der Blaue Reiter

i know i’m supposed to be imagining how cute my little dude would look in these duds, but truth is i want adult sizes please! Bobo Choses is a renowned Spanish brand of super cool kidswear, and their new exclusive SS16 range is inspired by artists like Matisse, Picasso and Hockney. you…

Modcloth Swim

ModCloth Swim

back in the good old days before our currency tanked, and i could actually still shop online, i used to buy quite a lot of things from ModCloth. i’ve always liked the fact that they cater to women of all sizes, and i found so many of their dresses suited my…

Sabé Masson

Sabé Masson

i love the idea of solid perfume, mostly because i like having something in my bag that i can reapply during the day without accidentally spritzing some stranger in the face. that’s why i always have this with me – but i think it’s time to find something more substantially fragranced.…

Hómini

Hómini

Hómini is a jewellery line designed by two architect-trained sisters, Deborah & Dinorah Kaiser, who live in Montevideo, Uruguay. i love this lookbook so much because it reminds me of Tom & Jerry, or even this scene from Alice in Wonderland. a pretty surreal setting for such refined, minimalist jewellery.…

Marilyn

Thank you

it’s the blog’s 7th birthday today! i already did a post about all that jazz last week, here it is. the one reason this dear old bunch of code and jpgs is still in existence is because of my cool sponsors, without which i would not be able to keep running it. so…

Polder

Polder + April Showers

polder is a boutique in Paris that also has a girls line called april showers. originally i was just going to share the new polder spring 2016 collection, but was totally seduced by the kids line, too. The Parisian brand polder was created in 2000 by two sisters of Dutch origin, Madelon Lanteri-Laura and Natalie Vodegel.…

Magnolia Antic

Magnolia Antic

i’m quite looking forward to wearing normal clothes again soon, maybe even something a bit fancy. wouldn’t mind being invited to a wedding or some event that required me to dress up – not something i would usually look forward to. or perhaps just don a fancy dress and swan around in…

shoes by Mari Giudicelli

Mari Giudicelli

Mari Giudicelli is the gorgeous brazilian who you have seen modelling for cool brands like Maryam Nassir Zadeh and Erin Considine (amongst many others). she is, naturally, very stylish herself and is launching an eponymous shoe brand – debuting this Friday. you can read all about it at T Magazine. Giudicelli cites nature as her primary…

i like these bags by Future Glory very much. Future Glory Co. locally handcrafts bags and accessories that support social causes. We believe that business is a means to support social change, so with every purchase, a portion of proceeds is donated to local organizations dedicated to rebuilding the lives…

Tinker

Tinker

Tinker is a sort of a choose your own adventure watch brand. you pick the size, strap colour and finish you want – and that’s the watch you get. it’s fun building your own watch… i think i would pick the smallest face, in gold, with a blush pink strap. or black! or…

Club Petanque

Club Petanque

oh what i would give to wear a cosy sweatshirt right now. this week in Cape Town it would be more of a SWEAT shirt, know what i’m saying? Club Petanque is, as you may already have guessed, very French – selling cool sweats and tees for men and women,…

Pajamas, Pyjamas (Potatoes, Potahtoes)

Jim Jams

i decided to title this post Jim Jams because that’s what i call pyjamas. no, i’m not five. but it’s easier than trying to decide if i should go with the British spelling of pyjamas or the wholly more sensible American spelling of pajamas. PJs, jim jams, pyjamas, pajamas, sleepwear – whatever…
