Fashion

madame

you might get sick of my paris bla bla bla paris posts in the following days (i apologise in advance, just let me get it out of my system). i still have to sort through my photos, so in the meantime i thought i’d share excerpts from one of the magazines that air france gives out free of charge to their passengers at the airports and in their planes. not anything like south african airways’ little sawubona mag, mind you…

air france’s madame magazine (which caters towards ladies and fashion minded folks) features ads from louis vuitton, chloé, miu miu fendi etc etc etc and editorial content that’s something like a mix between elle, marie claire and some cool decor mag. that is to say, it’s actually interesting to look at. seriously, this is a free airline magazine.

alix: things i like right now

things i like right now by alix of unfashionable / alix is for hire

  1. The Runaways – 70s Rock ‘n Roll played by wayward teenage girls
  2. Denim on Denim ala George Harrison
  3. Cape Town jewellery design label Oh Dear, Megan by Megan Fogarty – In love with this particular ring, she has used the inside of a vintage watch to make it.
  4. Working from home
  5. Rock biographies – Just finished “I was Keith Richards’ drug dealer” by Tony Sanchez. Eye-opening.
  6. The photography of 17 year old Australian, Nirrimi. – At 17 I might’ve had hobbies but this girl has a career. She has just shot for the Diesel ‘Be Stupid’ catalogue.
  7. My new specs – Only found out a week ago that I need to wear glasses. The novelty hasn’t worn off yet so I’m like a kid with a new toy.
  8. Top knots – Ever-convenient and they somehow make you look slimmer, weird.
  9. Rose printed upholstery – In my early teens I was so ashamed of the out-of-date rose printed couches we had in our lounge. Now l want them to be left to me!
  10. Thomas Pepler’s film photography – Local Cape Town designer with an incredible eye for photography. Jealousy-inducing.

kate: things i like right now

kate is one of my best friends whom i met in high school. she is an aspiring bag designer – keep an eye out for this lady.

things i like right now by kate of mooi mooi

  1. Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner in sepia ink with ultra fine eyeliner brush – its super easy to apply and long wearing so I don’t end up looking like a raccoon at the end of a long day (or night).
  2. Collect necklaces – especially the bokkie :)
  3. Peonies – a bunch of these beauties is the easiest way to get into my good books ;)
  4. Narciso Rodriguez for her – thanks to Miss Moss for introducing me to this, its no. 1 on my Christmas wishlist.
  5. Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener – I love this product. Think YSL Touche Eclat, just more affordable.
  6. My grandfather’s Praktica Super TL camera.
  7. Smith’s Rosebud Salve – forget eight hour cream, this is a miracle in a tin.
  8. Greta Garbo inspired Dior ad campaign.
  9. Patterns in my coffee – I have become such a regular at my local Vida that the baristas make a game of creating new and interesting patterns in my double meia froth. Both the coffee and the photo are by a friend of mine, Nathalie. Too cute.
  10. Feminine, lingerie inspired, summer frocks.
  11. Donna Karan Double Zip Messenger Bag – wouldn’t mind it being a bit smaller though… guess i need make my own version ;)
  12. Vintage margazit brooch from my mom – priceless.
  13. Comfy flat shoes for long summer walks with my dogs.

i need to get myself some of that eyeliner and eye brightener, am a serious sufferer of panda eyes

elle oh elle

the september Elle magazine has been out since mid-august, and i was determined to wait till september to actually post about this – but i am far too impatient for my own good….

kim, lana, lauren and i were lucky enough to be featured in their spring issue for ‘the scoop on spring’. in case you read the article and were wondering what on earth i was talking about – here’s my post about atonement & morris and here is the old mac daddy trailer park. i also mentioned pastel blouses, this is what i had in mind:

if you discovered my blog through the Elle, welcome! and thanks Elle mag, what an honour.
