Mignonne Handmade

Mignonne Handmade

i got unexpectedly caught up in a serious wedding frenzy when we got married, something i wasn’t anticipating. the excitement can turn even the most blasé and un-girly girl into a sudden pinterest addict. don’t get me wrong, it was fun. i look back fondly on my wedding induced madness.

HDH Swim

HDH Swim

Hackwith Design House has just released their all-new swimwear collection. there are currently several different styles of bikini tops and bottoms, as well as two full piece suits, in either black or white that you can mix and match to your liking. but probably my favourite part is that you can see the pieces worn by two different models so that you can get a better idea of how the suit might fit your body type.

Fortnight Lingerie SS15

Fortnight Lingerie SS15

looking through the SS15 collection from Canadian label Fortnight Lingerie was like visiting an old friend, as they were one of my first sponsors back in 2011! see the feature i did with the woman behind the label, Christina Remenyi, here and another great interview with her at Boots & Pine. it’s a killer lookbook too. if you’re interested in donning yourself in some fancy lady threads visit their website, they are stocked by a bunch of people online.

The Art of Valentino

Miss Moss: Valentino Colour Comparisons

sometimes i like to imagine that Valentino create collections just for me. i picture the entire creative team sitting in their studio in Milan, saying – “you know, Diana hasn’t done a colour comparison in a while – things are looking a bit bleak over there. should we give her some inspiration? let’s throw everything we have at her! floral prints, landscapes, Ndebele, the GALAXY… she’s gonna LOVE this.” yep.

ELOI

ELOI scarves, made from paper cut-out designs.

i’m always into things that are slightly off-kilter and what people might call “crazy”. that’s why i instantly took a liking to ELOI, a range of scarves by artist Paige Russell who constructs vibrant designs from paper cut-outs.
