the frock collection by anja louise verdugo: Painted clothing, mostly from the 20’s and 30’s, based on ebay photos of things I couldn’t buy. An upgrade from the low-quality ebay photos, and a way to have these items without actually owning the frocks.
a mid-week bumper fashion special that is dedicated to everything nautical (i’m on holiday by the sea, give me a break)
you know, i’ve been skimping on the bumper fashion specials lately, mostly because i haven’t come across a lot of summer stuff that i find very inspiring (especially since at least 90% of what we’re exposed to fashion wise is from the north, where they are now settling into deep winter – jackets, coats, scarves, layers etc). so if you’re a southern african like me (or any other southern cousin), you’ll be experiencing 30+ degree heat by now – and black tights are the furthest things from your mind. that being said, i’ve done my best to collect some summer goodness from around the web. note: i’m not counting the spring / summer 2010 shows, which i covered pretty extensively here, here, here & here
bumper fashion special #19 – i’m interested to see what direction things are going to go next, feel that the rock / studded look is getting played a lot (even though… i love it)
bumper fashion special #18 – it’s late! i know! and even though i promised no more spring shows, i had to add a few from paris fashion week because they are pretty, pretty nice…. and pretty.
