asos / zara fall 2010 lookbooks

i tend to lust after high street brands more than anything else. asos & zara just do it for me. i saw most of this zara stuff when i was in paris & now feel like a right idiot for not buying all of it. i would have been broke forever, though.

kate: things i like right now

things i like right now by kate of black cherry

  1. Colour at Jil Sander: These brights make me so happy. Jil Sander pulls off colour with pure class.
  2. Pictures of Cats: Not the LOL kind. There’s something special about capturing a moment with a cat on camera. Probably because they can be so aloof.
  3. Vredehoek: Friends’ balconies, warm summer evenings, saturday morning walks to the Spar – Vredehoek feels like home and I don’t even live there. Image via HighArt/LowLife
  4. Unusual Hats: I heart hats. Give me a turban, fez, bowler or boater and I’m yours! Image via Yvan Rodic
  5. Models who read backstage: Fighting the stereotype that models are stupid one novel at a time.
  6. Socks: I must have inherited my love of socks from my mom. Polkadots, stripes, argyle, Nordic print – she has a pair to match any outfit. I’ve started my own collection, but it pales in comparison to hers. Image via Teen Vogue
  7. Blog Books: Few things make me happier than my collection of blog books. All I need is Fifi Lapin’s “What Shall I Wear Today?” and  my life will be complete.
  8. Kris Atomic: a freelance illustrator from Brighton who has the coolest blog and makes the most amazing drawings.
  9. These Outfits: Simple. Classic. Effortless. Chic. Everything an outfit should be. Left: The Sartorialist ; Right: Hanneli Mustaparta
  10. My Margot Molyneux Cape: Local designer Margot Molyneux fulfilled my sartorial dreams when she made me this camel cape. I swear it has magical powers.

another day to dress up

here’s another i can’t believe i haven’t posted about this yet post. but the truth is, it’s sort of like talking about the sartorialist. “hey, have you guys heard about this blog called the sartorialist?! it’s this guy who takes beautiful photos of rad people on the street who dress nicely! it’s beyond awesome.”

… that’s how it feels posting about megan of another day to dress up, i just assume that everyone knows about her. every outfit she wears makes me go, oh noooo i want it too. so if you don’t follow her blog already – do it.
