Californian jewellery line Crescioni has a new Spring collection on the block, and i gotta say i love the big chunky pieces – especially all the brass earrings. women need to wear more jewellery at the beach, huh? i feel like this is a very cool department we’re not tapping. swimwear by Nu Swim, clothes from Passenger. photography by Andrew Lee.
ABOVE: Life Lessons pins
have you guys noticed that enamel pins have become a thing? recently i’ve seen so many rad ones popping up all around the place, and people rocking them in my Instagram feed. and because they’re mostly being made by talented illustrators and designers they’re all super rad. here are some nice ones i found that you can buy online, if you feel like jazzing up your lapel (or whatever). you can just click on some of the images to be taken directly to the shop!
today is “Spring Day” in South Africa – even though our spring equinox is actually on 23 September (my birthday! coincidence? maybe.) i suppose people around here are just too excited to push winter right out of the way. and conversely people on the other side of the world people are quite ready to usher in autumn. Canadian designer Noémie Vaillancourt is one of those people, having just released her FW15 collection for her label Noemiah.
so, Elizabeth Suzann has turned into a bit of a cult label since i first blogged about her way back in 2013. that’s because Elizabeth is a bit of a genius. her collections just get better and better – i think she might have reached peak awesomeness with FW15. i truly envy those of you going into cooler months, and if you get the chance to wear one of her cosy looking creations i envy you even more.
i like having options, and Reformation gets that. most all of their dresses and skirts come in a variety of colours or patterns. i have the habit of buying one thing in all the different colours if it is a great fit, so i’d have to be careful if i ever got the opportunity to actually buy something from them. bonus: they have free worldwide shipping!
are you a future bride? congratulations! are you looking for a dress? yay! well, look no further. Dear Golden has some of the most exquisite vintage wedding dresses i have ever seen. AND there is a 30% sale off her entire shop happening till 19 July, so you’d best pick your favourite soon. you should also follow Lauren on Instagram, she’s always revealing some insane vintage treasures on there.
i’m giving 10,000,000 points to MétaFormose. doesn’t matter what the points are for. maybe they’re for this coat (or this one!) or this dress. or this skirt. or this shirt. or these shoes. i want basically everything they make – and the best part is that if you order something from them it is custom made to your measurements. that’s like having a personal tailor, who has great taste, who’s also your best friend (okay maybe not the last part).
