Uniform

i discovered this old post and thought it deserved a revival of sorts. 6 outfits made up of 3 essential items. they are not all budget friendly though, i apologise. if i make fantasy outfits they really tend to be exactly that. row 1: A.P.C. Jenny Sweater // Weekend by…

& Other Stories

whenever i discover a new online shop i go through various stages of emotion. 1. i’m excited by all the beautiful clothes. 2. i’m sad that i can’t order any of them. 3. i’m relieved because my credit card sits untouched. rinse, and repeat. so when Catherine alerted me to & Other Stories i went through…

MHL x Houyhnhnm

Margaret Howell recently partnered with Japanese publication Houyhnhnm to showcase the S/S 2012 collection from her off-shoot line MHL. it is a beautiful collection, and i love how it completely slipstreams into the Japenese aesthetic of favouring comfortable, functional clothes made from natural fabrics. via Tomboy Style

ASOS SALON

i had to put a devastating end to my love affair with ASOS because having anything shipped into South Africa usually ends up costing a fortune in customs charges* – but if i was living across the pond i’d definitely be snapping up some of these pieces from the ASOS…

Confezioni Crosby F/W 2012

easter is my favourite holiday. not because of the chocolate (who cares about the chocolate? we can buy that stuff all year round – who are we kidding.) no no, it’s because every easter weekend in my living memory has marked the turn of the seasons. it will always be…
