Spartan

i first posted about Austin based shop Spartan waaaaaay back in 2010! that’s like a 100 years in internet time. so i’ve been excited to share their new lookbook, which i was lucky enough to get a sneak peek of before it launched. they stock items by designers that i love like Crescioni, Erin Considine, Dealtry and a whole host of others that are new-to-me.

We were feeling very inspired by women artists of the 20th century and studied portraits of these women for inspiration. Although our focus in the past has been home goods and jewelry, we are branching it a way that feels very natural to us to few apparel pieces that are easy to wear and great for travel – hats, bags, scarves, wool tunics, oversized sweaters, etc, with the same attention to graceful design and beautiful, high quality materials.

More & Co.

More & Co. is a little shop that deals in everyday objects – “the ones that surround us, the ones we reach for again and again”. every few months they release a new collection based on a theme or a certain set of ideas. Two Feet On The Ground is their latest.

Every year as the air chills and the sun thins, we settle in. It’s time to cook, organize, clean house, see friends, drink red wine. Plant your feet on the ground and find balance for the coming season with this collection.

India House

i was lucky enough to spend an evening at India House (so named for the bright blue old wooden door brought from Gujarat, India), a self-catering cottage in the Bastiaanskloof at the bottom of the Bainskloof Pass, less than 2 hours from Cape Town. the setting is so amazing that the beautiful decor and luxury finishes of the house itself are kind of just a bonus. not that anyone would complain about that swimming pool or lounging around on huge comfortable couches all day long. just beware of the baboons.

you can see more pics of the house and its lovely interior here. all photos by me.
