Check & Checked

i love plaid, even though it’s a “trend” that’s been around for years now. doubtless i will still love it long after it filters out of every department store. if i see a girl with a nice checked shirt tucked into good jeans or with a pair of well fit trousers i am guaranteed to turn and take a second look. so if you see me staring at you in the street, don’t be alarmed.

Collages & Kings

i have been out of commission today, so just want to share more of my great friend amy’s collages for inspiration’s sake.

these images are all from amy’s collection of cutouts from magazines & some were possibly printed from the internet. unfortunately i can’t list any of the sources – but if you by any chance see something that is yours let me know!

11th Moon

oh boy am i a sucker for a well curated (online) shop. 11th Moon hits all the right notes… and makes my heart beat a little bit faster than it should. they have an enviable list of designers in their inventory & beautiful styling to boot.

How to wear stuff

Shini Park’s Park & Cube has long been one of my favourite fashion blogs. i’m always reblogging her photos on tumblr – not only because they are so beautiful (she is a designer after all) but she has an impeccable sense of style that makes me all kinds of envious. every time she posts something new i’m bound to say oh! those shoes or oh! that skirt etc. so i simply had to share her latest post how to wear stuff & turn you into a Park & Cube reader if you’re not one already.

Fancy Pants

kate and alix-rose are two talented cape town locals who i’ve come to know via twitter (the internet never ceases to bring me joy it seems). kate is a copywriter with a great penchant for fashion, and alix-rose is a photographer whose work i’m always excited to see over at her blog. they’ve done some pretty awesome self-motivated shoots before, so i was thrilled when kate asked if i’d like to feature their latest collaboration. which. is. amazing. i might have said “holy eff balls” when i first got a sneak peak. the colour palettes alone are enough to make me weak at the knees.
