hey, GAP. i hate that you guys didn’t have any of this rad stuff when i was in paris. you suck. okay no, you don’t. but please come to south africa – we’re having spring slash summer right now! i could really do with all of this.
i’m vaguely aware that in the US gap isn’t considered the most stylish of brands (correct me if i’m wrong), but when i lived in london i absolutely loved it, and was in and out of there all the time (with shopping bags, of course.) do the european stores have different desgners / stock, i wonder?
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.
fantasy outfit #5… total price: $8000 (R58,500) uuuum. yes okay, it’s mostly from net-a-porter.
man-o-lantern it’s been cold this weekend! just when i was babbling about it being so warm and un-winter like the cape decides to pull one of it’s classic rainy sessions. so this fantasy outfit is based around a fuck-off warm jacket. sometimes i feel a bit bad about shearling… but i eat lamb so who am i to talk? don’t hate me, vegetarians.
ps: perhaps one day i will look back and be amused at my choice of shoe, but i am quite taken with swedish hasbeens and any kind of wooden platform. oh well. pps: there’s a cup of coffee in there… yes there is.
dace has a great lookbook for their fall / winter 2010 collection. it looks like what we have been missing weather wise here in south africa (not that i’m complaining about the sunny awesomeness we’ve been blessed with, but i do enjoy the odd grey day). they also have quite a cool video accompanying the lookbook. see all the clothes here.
