Princeton, 1969

It was in 1969 that Princeton University first admitted women as undergraduates. 148 women, consisting of 100 freshwomen and transfer students of other years, entered Princeton on September 6, 1969 amidst a frenzy of media ogling and ribbing. Scores of women’s papers and magazines, like Woman’s Wear Daily, featured articles on what the stylish Princeton freshwoman wore on campus, and practically every woman student was featured in her hometown newspaper.

Begonia House

i’m not a girly girl, but these delicate blouses and dresses that look like they’re blooming are simply incredible. to top it all off, designer kelsey genna is only 19 years old. these are from her latest collection, begonia house.

those jeans

i’m just filing this away right here for when the time is right. our summer is still in full swing – so high waisted flared jeans worn with boots, socks, tucked in shirts, jerseys, coats and all the best things in the world aren’t an option right now. i look at these outifts the same way someone on a diet might look at a food blog.

SOS ASOS

asos has long been my favourite online shop because (a) they ship to south africa and (b) their prices are great … not to forget (c) their clothes are awesome.
