Things I’m loving = Local

Here are some goodies I’m loving by local designers, who never cease to amaze me with their beautiful creations. Buying local fills me with such a sense of pride, that not only am I supporting South African designers, but I’m helping to invest in the local economy. All the local designers I love and stock in my store, use great quality fabrics, leathers, cottons and finishes to create their ranges and I am loving green, grey and blue accent tones this Spring. I’m also mad about vintage and collect deer, swans and anything with hearts on them, so I’ve pandered to my whims and included some beautiful things from local designers with my collections in mind.

  1. Trip Bags – Handmade in False Bay.
  2. Liesel Trautman Porcelain Cups – By Liesel Trautman in Observatory.
  3. Locally made fabric pumps
  4. Skinny laMinx‘s new cushions – available at Beatnik Bazaar
  5. Brooches by Skermunkil (I wear mine everyday!) – available at Beatnik Bazaar
  6. Felt Swans and dolls by Gwen loves Harold
  7. Bunting
  8. Vintage plate wall art
  9. Their awesome sense of fashion (top right: The Sartorialist & bottom left: Mary B)
  10. Nook Eatery in Stellenbosch
  11. Rustic cabins
  12. Thrifting
  13. My son and my husky
  14. The Old Mac Daddy vintage airstream trailer park in Elgin.

marike le roux

i get such a glowing sense of pride when i see south africans making it internationally. in this case it’s model marike le roux from potchefstroom who’s appeared on the cover of vogue turkey and walked for a ton of big name designers (hervé léger, marc jacobs, max azria, alexander mcqueen, chloé, louis vuitton, sonia rykiel, prada, elie saab etc etc.) read this little interview with her for more info.

could actually cry

seriously, if someone had to give me one of these right now i would probably burst into tears. excruciatingly happy tears. they’re only betwixt R5,000 – 50,000 … no worries. max bill watches by junghans (design dates from the 50′s)
