Bon, who i have featured a few times around here, collaborated with Tucson based vintage shop Desert Vintage in a fun Spring 2015 lookbook photographed by Krysta Jabczenski. it makes me want to grab all my gal pals and run off into the desert for a stupidly fun weekend.
Vuela has been one of my consistent sponsors for 3 years now (that’s like 27 years in internet time) so i’m excited to share their very first lookbook showcasing a wide array of homeware, apparel, jewellery & accessories by independent designers the world over. i’m really into that rope market basket and workaday handmade ceramics.

looking through the SS15 collection from Canadian label Fortnight Lingerie was like visiting an old friend, as they were one of my first sponsors back in 2011! see the feature i did with the woman behind the label, Christina Remenyi, here and another great interview with her at Boots & Pine. it’s a killer lookbook too. if you’re interested in donning yourself in some fancy lady threads visit their website, they are stocked by a bunch of people online.
Madrid based designer Dina Khalifé established her own clothing line in 2011, turning her passion of drawing into creative textiles that set the mood for her colourful clothing & accessories. the SS15 collection & lookbook called The Swimmers perfectly showcases her fun designs. love those crazy necklaces…
damn, the FW14 lookbook by Mayflower Supply was bittersweet for me to look through. very sweet because New York is always a good idea; but ever so slightly bitter because my husband is actually there right now – without me, waaaah! owner Liz Hull gave me some insight into the lovely Meryl & Diane inspired shoot.
this past weekend my niece had her 6th birthday party (we made her a leopard cake). it was a classic hot December day, there were a hundred kids in the pool, running through sprinklers and eating slices of watermelon. that whole day reminded me of this new SS15 collection by Royal Caballito – fun, bright, summer.
Neira is one of my favourite fashionable people, just one look at her tumblr or her instagram puts a smile on my face. you may remember my first post about her bag line MOMO earlier this year. since then i have been spotting MOMOs all around town, and have been carrying my own black patent MOMO around relentlessly (it goes with EVERYTHING!) so i was really excited to see this new summer campaign, and asked her to tell me a bit about it…
