i’ve had so many great new lookbooks & collections floating on my radar the past couple of days, and so decided to share them all in one amazing, mega, Fashion Frenzy post! featuring Brookes Boswell, Young Frankk, Yo Vintage and the collaboration of Adriaan Kuiters x Jody Paulsen x Pichulik.
okay, i have about half an hour to get this post out as the power is due to go off at 8pm. yes, South Africa is in the middle of an energy crisis. if you don’t live here you probably don’t know this (or care) but we have run out of electricity. ha! ha! ha! i am just laughing to make myself feel better, and also there are so many strange and wonderful things about living in SA that you kind of just have to go with the flow.
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.
last week we visited a newish deli that opened in my neighbourhood late last year. there is a large Jewish community in Sea Point, so i benefit from all sorts of great stuff in the supermarkets around here that you typically don’t get in other areas of Cape Town (like being able to choose from ten different types of hummus) as well as a deli culture that used to be serviced by the now-closed New York Bagel. so Kleinsky’s is a welcome addition to the neighbourhood, and not only do they do great food – and satisfy my cravings for bagels and schmear – but they also have a rad interior.
i’m looking to broaden my online reading horizons – what are your favourite, possibly new or relatively unknown online spaces that you’ve been visiting lately? if you have a blog then this is the time to plug it! if i find interesting reads then i am most certainly likely to share it with you right here in a Mid Week Distraction.
photographer Frederik Vercruysse documents the rooms of this stately home in rural Belgium in such a way that it almost looks like the kind of place Escher would live in. have you guys ever played the amazing game Monument Valley? that’s what i felt like when i was looking through these images. the house was discovered in a derelict state and refurbished by architects Buyse Seghers.
