That dress

THAT DRESS | Jenni le Grange photography

i don’t look at wedding blogs at all anymore, mostly because my interest in all things wedding peaked around the time we got married. i still follow a few wedding photographers on Instagram, because i admire their talent and i love seeing when they share genuine moments (rather than, say, amazing floral centrepieces). that’s how i discovered Jenni le Grange, a wedding photographer based in Cape Town, and while browsing through her website i saw THE MOST AMAZING DRESS.

Charlotte Stone

Charlotte Stone SS15

i LOVE the new spring collection from Charlotte Stone. i have two pairs of sandals by this awesome LA based designer, and i have never ever had so many people ask me “where did you get those?”

Laura Berger

sometimes you browse through someone’s work just because it makes you feel really GOOD. that’s what i felt when i discovered the artwork of Chicago based illustrator Laura Berger, and i spent the next while looking at every print available at her online shop (i particularly love this one and this one.. oh and this one.)

Gift Shop Brooklyn SS15

Gift Shop Brooklyn SS15

Gift Shop Brooklyn has a new collection for Spring, sporting simple & feminine tones of gold, tan, chocolate brown and classic black.  designer Annie gave me a bit of insight into the thought process behind her new collection.

Morgana Wallace

now before you look at these, closely, think about the fact that they are all cut out by hand and illustrated. Canadian artist Morgana Wallace is the talented woman behind these multi-layered creations, made out of paper and finely illustrated with gauche, which she shares on her blog and instagram. i love these characters. i can almost imagine the entire Game of Thrones series illustrated like this, can’t you?

Jewels Cinq

Miss Moss: Jewels Cinq

another edition of Jewels! i seem to do one of these a year, but i think i need to do them more frequently because they’re such a nice way to offer up a wide variety of jewellery designers. i know we all have different tastes, so hopefully some – or all – of these will hit the sweet spot for you.

Mid Week Distraction No. 22

Mid Week Distraction No. 22

so this coming weekend is a long weekend in SA, as well as next weekend. yes, this is the month of all the public holidays ever. i have a favour to ask you – can you recommend a GREAT book to get stuck into? i plan on putting away my devices and going old school on one of my days off. curling up on the couch and not getting up unless for tea and cookies. i like mystery, suspense, history, romance… anything gripping, anything that you just can’t. put. down.

Touch

Kwangho Lee

Touch is a series of hyperreal paintings by Korean artist Kwangho Lee. the odd thing about cacti is that you actually DO want to touch them, in all their weird, rubbery, spiky, fluffy glory. you know you shouldn’t, but you just kinda want to.
