Mono Wardrobe. Monodrobe.

monodrobe-fb

this past winter i realised that almost every single thing i bought was black and i would wear it with white or denim or whatever – but overwhelmingly black, nonetheless. and i was more than okay with that. i am currently mourning the impending loss of my rad MONODROBE with the oncoming heat we’ll be experiencing soon (shudder… or should i say, sweat?)

SS 15

my game plan before delving into the vast pool of the SS15 collections was just to click on things that made me think, “show me more!” and that’s what i’m sharing with you. saving you time, saving me time. looks are arranged according to theme, just like my Resort 2015 post.

Truvelle

next weekend we celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. it feels like it was years ago, yet minutes ago. my dress is still hanging in the same position in our cupboard, skirt flecked with dirt and doubtlessly splattered with champagne – as if it happened yesterday.

These Things No.61

These Things 61

Miss Moss

excuse my pudgy toes.

hey guys! it’s my birthday today. i woke up to beautiful flowers, and white chocolate cheese cake in bed and a new kindle (thank you, kind generous husband). i’m 31 today, which feels weird to say because sometimes i still have this sentiment about my age.

Double Tap: Charlotte Trounce

Double Tap: Charlotte Trounce

illustrator Charlotte Trounce has been doing these amazing illustrative recaps of select SS15 fashion shows on her Instagram account, which certainly deserves a Double Tap (i would triple tap if i could!) i feel like when you look at the seasonal shows everything starts merging into one big fashion rainbow, and sometimes it just takes one talented & creative individual to show you awesome aspects and details you might not have picked up yourself.

Jackie in India, 1962

jackie-india-01

i know there are mountains upon mountains of imagery of Jackie Kennedy all over the internet, but i actually hadn’t seen these pics of her visit to India before, so i thought i’d share. she looks happy and colourful, accompanied by her sister Lee Radziwill. there’s even a video about her trip at the JFK Library. photos courtesy of Life.

The Collecteur

thanks to Mallory for uncovering this Gem. Giulia Scalese is The Collecteur, a photographer & manipulator who collects garments, accessories & props and assembles them into the vibrant fashion still lifes. all the shopping links are on her tumblr.

Maison Kitsuné SS15

Maison Kitsune SS15

while browsing through the exhaustive list of SS15 shows (more on that later) i was pleasantly surprised to see that Parisian / Japanese label Maison Kitsuné made their debut at NY fashion week. and even though the reviewer at Style.com gave them a rather catty write-up, i found that the collection made me smile – which is really all i ask from fashion.

More & Co.

more-and-co-01

More & Co. is a little shop that deals in everyday objects – “the ones that surround us, the ones we reach for again and again”. every few months they release a new collection based on a theme or a certain set of ideas. Two Feet On The Ground is their latest.

Medical Art School

Medical Art School

this series of images that i discovered in the LIFE archives fascinated me because up until that point i had never even thought that such a thing as a “medical art school” would exist. but of course, yes. i’m just grateful that more gory things weren’t documented. if i wanted to see that i would just switch on my TV (Outlander and The Knick, i’m looking at you).

Simon and Mary SS15

Simon and Mary SS15

the new SS15 collection from Johannesburg based milliners Simon and Mary has made me realise that i really need a yellow hat for summer. and a blue one. maybe even a green one if i’m feeling fancy. i love seeing their classic styles in such rad colours.
