Reformation

reformation

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!

Vintage Wedding Dresses

Vintage Wedding Dresses

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.

MétaFormose

MétaFormose

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).

Visits: Coppelia

Miss Moss | Visits: Coppelia

this is the fourth instalment of VISITS, a series in collaboration with Monya Eastman.

there’s a Mungo and Jemima store just around the corner from my office in Cape Town’s city centre, and so i usually find myself popping in there in-between errands and lunch runs. the last few times i have agonised over this coat by Coppelia (which will make you channel Olivia Pope). i always try it on and then sadly put back on the rack because, let’s face it, i have too many coats. so it was nice to meet the woman behind this inspiring local brand, as well as the lovely women who work with her in the Coppelia studio in the east side of Cape Town.

Botanical Resort

Miss Moss: Botanical Resort. Colour Mash Ups of Resort 2016 x Vintage Botanical Illustrations

this post all started with a dress. well, actually... it all started when i was ploughing through hundreds of photos of the Resort 2016 collections. but that’s not such a great intro, is it? truth be told i’m kind of lost when it comes to “the shows”. i might see one frequently popping up on my feeds (this year it’s been Gucci and Dior – but purely because of the venue) and then i cautiously dip my toes into a veritable ocean of fashion, which can be an overwhelming ordeal for even the seasoned blogger. and my main aim is how to show you what i think is cool, without it being, well, boring. so how do i do that? the best way i know how:  a colour comparison.

Nadinoo

Nadinoo is one of those sweet indie brands that has been online since i can remember. British designer Nadia Izruna’s love of clothing and the desire to sew up cheerful, well-designed womenswear spurred her on to start her own label in 2009. her new collection The Good Life was influenced by Nadia’s move to the English countryside.
